1960 CHEVROLET EL CAMINO
The Chevrolet El Camino is a pickup / coupe utility vehicle that
was produced by Chevrolet between 1959-60 and 1964-1987. 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.
Introduced in the 1959 model year in response to the success of the
Ford Ranchero pickup, its first run lasted only two years.
Production resumed for the 1964-1977 model years based on the
Chevelle platform, and continued for the 1978-1987 model years
based on the GM G-body platform.
Although based on corresponding General Motors car lines, the
vehicle is classified in the United States as a pickup. GMC's badge
engineered El Camino variant, the Sprint, was introduced for the
1971 model year. Renamed Caballero in 1978, it was also produced
through the 1987 model year.
First generation (1959-1960)
The El Camino was introduced for the 1959 model year two years
after the Ford Ranchero. According to Chevrolet stylist Chuck
Jordan, GM Harley Earl had suggested a coupe pickup in 1952.
Like the Ranchero, it was based on an existing and modified
platform, the new-for-1959 Brookwood two-door station wagon, itself
based on the completely redesigned, longer, lower and wider
full-sized Chevrolet. Highly stylized, it initially sold 50% more
briskly than the more conservative Ranchero, some 22,000 to
Unlike the Brookwoods wagon and a sedan delivery variant, the El
Camino was available with any full-sized Chevrolet drivetrain. It
came in a single trim level, its exterior using the mid-level
Bel-Air's trim, and the interior of the low-end Biscayne. Its
chassis featured Chevrolet's "Safety-Girder" X-frame design and a
full-coil suspension, both introduced in the 1958 model year. The
119 in (3,000 mm) wheel-base was 1.5 inches (38 mm) longer, and
overall length for all 1959 Chevrolets was up to 210.9 in (5,360
mm). The El Camino's payload rating ranged from 650-1,150 lb
(290-520 kg), with gross vehicle weights ranging from 4,400-4,900
lb (2,000-2,200 kg) depending on powertrain and suspension. The
somewhat soft passenger car suspension of the base model left the
vehicle level without a load, in contrast the Ranchero, where
standard 1100-pound rated heavy duty rear springs gave it a
distinct rake when empty. The quirky Level Air suspension option,
in its second and final year, was listed as available, but was
almost never seen on any Chevrolet model, much less an El Camino.
The 1959 El Camino was promoted as the first Chevrolet pickup built
with a steel bed floor instead of wood. The floor was a corrugated
sheetmetal insert, secured with 26 recessed bolts. Concealed
beneath it was the floor pan from the Brookwood two-door wagon,
complete with foot wells. Box capacity was almost 33 cubic feet
The similar but less flamboyant 1960 model started at $2366 for the
six-cylinder model; another $107 for a V8 with the two-barrel 283.
At first glance, the exterior once again had a Bel Air look, with
that series' bright-metal "jet" applique and narrow trailing
molding used to accent the rear quarters. Inside,
Biscayne/Brookwood appointments also persisted. The seat was now
covered in striped-pattern cloth with vinyl facings. Available
interior trim shades were once again gray, blue, and green. Floor
coverings were in medium-tone vinyl. Mid-1959 powertrain
availability was carried over with minimal changes for 1960: The
base 283-cid V8 was detuned a bit for fuel economy and was now
rated at 170 bhp (127 kW; 172 PS), and the fuel-injected engines
were officially gone.
Orders plummeted by a third, to just 14,163, at which point
Chevrolet discontinued the model; meanwhile, Ford moved 21,027
Rancheros, which were now based on the brand-new Falcon compact.
The pioneering American sedan pickups just did not connect with
enough car-buying Americans. Perhaps these early "crossovers"
didn't carry enough passengers; in a time when baby-boomer families
dominated the market, three across was the best they could offer.
Cargo volume was meager compared with pickup trucks. The low-level
trim and marketing efforts focused almost exclusively on commercial
customers may have inhibited sales, as well.
