While Ford was the first to revive the once-common ‘roadster utility’ body style of the 1920s and 1930s with the Ford Ranchero, General Motors would take note and follow suit two years later. Their interpretation – the El Camino – was first advertised as “a commercial vehicle that’s a prize combination of business ability and beauty.” The second-generation El Camino would quickly follow in 1964 with bigger engines and higher trim levels, but it wasn’t until the third generation (1968-1972), based on the longer-wheelbase Chevelle sedan, that would solidify the pickup as a muscle-era American legend. With the popularity of V8 engines continuing to rise, by 1969 ninety-four percent of El Caminos were ordered with either a small-block or big-block V8. Paired with a lengthy options list including textured vinyl upholstery, Comfortilt steering wheel, and power steering has made well-equipped examples like this the holy grail muscle hauler.
