Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee proudly presents is 1969
Chevrolet El Camino. Few cars in history are as easily identifiable
and loved like the El Camino. Over the 25 model years and 5
generations, Chevy's half truck, half car has proven to be a
classic from its early days when it debuted in 1959. The El Camino
was created as direct competition to Ford's Ranchero that hit the
streets in 1957. When the Elky first came into the market it was
built on the Chevrolet X-frame, it shared the same engine options
and styling as the other big Chevy cars at the time like the Impala
and Biscayne. Chevy pulled the line for 3 years but in 1964 the El
Camino came back completely retooled on the new mid-size Chevelle
platform. For the remainder of the El Camino's life it carried on
as a midsized vehicle with car styling comparable to the
Chevelle/Malibu but with that unmistakable pick-up truck bed! In
1968 the El Camino started its third generation giving the truck a
more aggressive and muscular look, capitulating truck into the
muscle car era. Super Sport versions were even made with jaw
dropping looks and 396 and 454 motors were available in this era
making for so very powerful little trucks! While all El Caminos
seem to have a cult following, none seem to be more loved and
sought after then the third generation El Caminos of 1968-1972. Our
featured El Camino shows in a stunning silver paint wonderfully
contrasted by red vinyl interior, red carpeting, and a matching red
bed cover. The car is powered by a Chevrolet 350 ci engine hooked
up to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The stance on this car
looks wonderful sitting on the 5-spoke American Racing mag wheels.
The car is appointed with many creature comforts like an Alpine
stereo, 4-wheel power disc brakes, power steering with tilt, seat
belts, a battery shut off knob and removable rubber bed liner. The
truck spend much of its life in the dry New Mexico climate before
being restored this truck is a solid classic anyone would be proud
to cruise around in and show off a little! Take the wheel and hit
the streets in this 1969 El Camino!
