About the El Camino:
Ford Australia was the first company to produce a coupe utility as
a result of a 1932 letter from the wife of a farmer in Victoria,
Australia, asking for "a vehicle to go to church in on a Sunday and
which can carry our pigs to market on Mondays". Ford designer Lew
Bandt developed a suitable solution, and the first coupe utility
model was released in 1934.
The mid-1955 introduction of Chevrolet's Cameo Carrier pickup truck
helped pave the way for the El Camino. Although it was a model
variant of Chevrolet's Task Force light-duty pickup, the Cameo
offered an array of car-like features that included passenger-car
styling, fiberglass rear fenders, two-tone paint, a relatively
luxurious interior, as well as an optional V8 engine, automatic
transmission, and power assists. As always, there was a GMC version
offered during the same time, called the GMC Suburban Carrier with
the same features offered on the Chevrolet.
Ford introduced the 1957 Ranchero, and established a new market
segment in the U.S. market of an automobile platform based coupe
In 1959, Chevrolet responded with the El Camino to compete with
Ford's full-sized Ranchero. The original El Camino and Ranchero
would compete directly only in the 1959 model year.
Chevrolet introduced a longer El Camino in 1968, based on the
Chevelle station wagon/four-door sedan wheelbase 116", overall
length: 208" it also shared Chevelle Malibu exterior and interior
trims. The interior was revamped including cloth and vinyl or
all-vinyl bench seats and deep twist carpeting. All-vinyl Strato
bucket seats and center console were an $111 option. Power front
disc brakes and Positraction were optional. A new, high-performance
Super Sport SS396 version was launched. The Turbo-Jet 396 was
offered in 325HP or 350HP versions. Returning to the official
options list for the first time since late 1966 was the 375HP L78.
It had solid lifters, big-port heads, and an 800 cfm Holley
four-barrel on a low-rise aluminum manifold. A three-speed manual
was standard with all engines, and a four-speed or automatic was
optional. In 1968, the SS was a separate model (the "SS-396").
