America's favorite car/truck hybrid was first produced in 1959. The first generation was built on the Impala platform, and was produced for just two years. After a three year absence, the El Camino was re-introduced in 1964 on the Chevelle/Malibu platform. The 1964 (and subsequent) El Caminos were an immediate hit with the public. A Super Sport (SS) version of the El Camino was produced each year, starting in 1968. From 1971 to 1977, GMC produced a version of the El Camino called the GMC Sprint. In 1978, it became the GMC Caballero. The (Chevelle) Malibu was canceled in 1983, but the El Camino and Caballero outlasted their cousin by four years and stayed in production until 1987.
This web site focuses specifically on the Chevelle/Malibu-based El Caminos, especially those built from 1964 to 1972. Information on other years is also provided.
