1965 Chevrolet El Camino Custom What Makes This Car Special Chevrolet El Camino is a coupe utility vehicle that was produced by Chevrolet between 1959 1960 and 1964 1987. Unlike a pickup truck, the El Camino was adapted from a two-door station wagon platform that integrated the cab and cargo bed into the body. Introduced in the 1959 model year in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero coup utility, its first run lasted only two years. Production resumed for the 1964 1977 model years based on the Chevelle platform. A lot of collectors think the 1965 El Camino, like the one we have here at Skyway Classics, is the most desirable body style of all.
