Chevy El Camino : Truck or Car // We Tell You What it Really is?

More than a car – but not a true truck . The Chevrolet El Camino was built tough enough to get chores done on the farm, yet sporty enough to cruise boldly around downtown. In its prime, it wasn’t uncommon in the summer to see an El Camino’s bed full of people on their way to the lake And then seeing the Chevy El Camino in the fall, powering through the field for harvest. THIS IS THE STORY OF THE CHEVY EL CAMINO Built in response to the Ford Ranchero, the original Chevrolet El Camino was introduced in 1959 and touted as the “Handiest helper a family ever had!” When introduced in 1959, Chevy’s new “half-car/half-truck” had a good first year of sales. Built on the 119-inch wheelbase two-door Chevy Brookwood station wagon chassis with BelAir livery outside and a Biscayne interior, Chevy surprised Ford’s ’59 Ranchero with better overall sales of 22,246 to 14,169, respectively. Considering Ford’s first Ranchero came out in 1957 and sold well at 21,706 vehicles, it surprised everyone who followed this novel car/truck market. Just a quick note that the Chevy El Camino ran from 1959–1960 then back in 1964–1987 Its cousins the GMC Sprint Ran from -1971–1977 and GMC Caballero ran from – 1978–1987 The ’64 El Camino models were equipped with several powertrains such as the 194 cubic inch engine rated at 120 horsepower; a 230 cubic inch 6-cylinder engine with a 155 horsepower rating; and a V8 283 cubic inch small block with a 2 barrel carb rated at 195 horsepower.
