The El Camino has always been considered an exclusive car – half passenger car, half truck.
It was an intermediate between a pick-up and a sports coupe, and in Spanish means ‘the way’. Produced for only a year, namely from 1959 to 1960, it was soon relaunched in 1964, already on the new Chevelle platform, which was successfully produced until 1977. From 1978 onwards, the El Camino changes the platform again, now to GM’s G-platform. On some models, the GMC badge can be found instead of the usual Chevrolet.
The car was produced by General Motors between 1959-1960 and 1964-1987. And it comes as an American attempt to respond to the success of fellow countrymen from Ford with their Ranchero model.
