Nowadays an integral part of American popular culture, the pickup truck has come to be thought of as the modern-day equivalent of the cowboy's horse. Once viewed as strictly utilitarian commercial vehicles, they were seized on as ideal candidates for customising and hot-rodding in the post-war era, and today, like so many fashions that start in the USA, enjoy a cult following worldwide.
General Motors rationalised its truck production in 1911, introducing the 'GMC' brand name, to which Chevrolet was added during WWI. Chevrolet's El Camino pickup (or coupé utility vehicle) was first introduced in 1959 in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero, which, unusually for a pickup, featured an integral body/chassis rather than the traditional separate frame. In the El Camino's case it was adapted from the Biscayne two-door station wagon platform. This car is an example of the fourth generation, which was based on the station wagon from the Chevelle line-up and was built from 1973 to 1977. It has the 250ci (4.1-litre) six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. This El Camino was built in right-hand drive configuration for the South African market and was imported from there in January 2019. Restored in South Africa in the early 2000s, the car still presents well, but having been unused since importation will require some re-commissioning before returning to active use. A total of 66,571 kilometres (approximately 41,300 miles) is showing on the odometer. Offered with a V5C document.
