1959 Chevrolet El Camino
Why This Car Is Special
The Chevrolet El Camino was a pickup/coupe utility vehicle that was
produced by Chevrolet between 1959-60 and 1964-1987 and was
introduced in the 1959 model year in response to the success of the
Ford Ranchero pickup.
Unlike a standard pickup truck, the El Camino was adapted from the
standard two-door Chevrolet station wagon platform and integrated
the cab and cargo bed into the body.
