GM Show Celebrates 50th Anniversary of the Chevrolet El Camino

The 50th anniversary of the Chevrolet El Camino will be the focus of attention at this weekend's Carlisle All-GM Nationals, Friday through Sunday in Carlisle, Pa. El Caminos from 1959 to 1987 will be featured in a special display area at the show.

If you need to brush up on your Elky history before you go, check out our sentimental look back at coupe utility pickups.

One of the coolest pick-up ever, no doubt! A more and more rare classic today...too bad GM or FoMoCo (or even Chrysler) don't make these kind of vehicles today (G8 ST was a wrong try)... I think they would be a good selling cars now, especially for some smaller business, that don't need a stronger, bigger pick-up truck or for some hauling purposes.

The line started out with its wildest incarnation,after that it was boring lines.But,as far out as the 59/60 was,its cargo box was smaller than the mid-size based models to come.American bigger-is-not-so-better thought process there.

I'd buy a new El Camino tomorrow if it was available. We no longer need our full size Silverado pickup.

Agreed. Someone should put out a new elcamino type truck/car. The ssr was ugly as all hell. Ford should just make a lower ranger lol.
