1959 Chevrolet El Camino

Answering the call to Fords '57 - '58 Ranchero, Chevrolet introduced the El Camino in 1959. The first '59 El Camino was basically a 2-door Wagon with a Pickup truck box instead of an enclosed cargo area. Radical by design and made famous with its rear deck tail fins and cats eye taillights. The '59 El Camino is one that most will never forget!
