The Chevy El Camino
Chevrolet has produced many models that have landed themselves on the list of favorite classic cars over the years. For car enthusiasts, finding a great car to admire, restore, and pamper is something to look forward to for a lifetime. One of those models happens to be the Chevrolet El Camino. Let’s take a look at this great classic. Here, we’ll focus on the 1964-1967 model years.
Produced for several years, the El Camino enjoyed the following model years: 1959, 1960, and 1964-1987. Assembled in many U.S. cities as far apart as Atlanta and Baltimore, the three model years from 1964-1967 saw a few different engine options as well. The standard engine was a small block V8 engine which measured 283 cubic inches. The El Camino also included air shocks.
For the 1965 model year, the Chevy El Camino received the same front facia as the Chevelle. The following year, a new engine option was added, a big block V8 measuring 396 cubic inches. That engine was they second largest engine in its history, and wouldn’t be outdone until 1971 when a 454 cubic inch engine became available.
