El Camino: Did you know?

'66 Chevy El CaminoThe Chevy El Camino is a special car that defined a special time. This car-turned-pickup filled a niche market in a way that few other vehicles could. Defined as a “coupe-utility vehicle,” the El Camino was found in the fields of California to the drag strips in the Midwest. Today the car finds comfort in the garages of the men and women who just cannot escape the 1970s and want to relive their glory days.

Chevrolet El Camino The Chevrolet is the classic car-pickup truck mash up beloved by many. Introduced in 1959, the El Camino offered consumers a utility vehicle that also looked and drove like a car. It was Chevy’s answer to the success of the very similar Ford Ranchero. The second, third, and fourth generation of the Chevrolet El Camino were based on the platform of the Chevelle, while the final generation switched to the Malibu. In spite of the car platforms, the El Camino has always been classified as a truck.
