The El Camino is a car-truck hybrid that was produced by Chevrolet from the time it was introduced in 1958 until it was phased out in 1987. Built on an Impala body, the original El Camino had the same unique taillights and rear fins as that Chevy model.
The El Camino wasn't an instant success, and Chevy discontinued the model in 1960. It was reintroduced four years later as a model built on the sturdier Chevelle body. With the addition of the SS model in 1968 and its more powerful engine, the El Camino became one of the great muscle cars of the late 1960s and the 1970s. Even though Chevy discontinued the model in 1987, the El Camino remains a classic.
