’67 El Camino: A working classic

Cast an eye on a rare collector’s item. El Camino. Takes on half-ton loads with a hefty frame and a six-and-a-half-foot-long cargo box. Takes it easy on standard Superlift air-adjustable rear shock absorbers. And there’s a Positraction rear axle available for holding down spins.

So load up. And load on the goodies. Like Strato-bucket seats, air conditioning, tach… the works. Everything goes with El Camino’s snappy standard or custom interior.

El Camino goes with more than 6 power-train combinations. Order from two Six and five V8 engines up to 350 horses. Match up your power plant with one of five manual and two automatic transmissions. Then put some teeth into your combo with the right axle ratio.

For the right safety features, check El Camino’s new set of standards: GM-developed energy-absorbing steering column, four-way hazard warning flasher, dual master-cylinder brake system and many more. Get a load of E! Camino at your Chevy dealer’s… Chevrolet Division of General Motors, Detroit, Michigan.

And put your finger on these: air conditioning, walnut-grained steering wheel, power windows. To top it all off: a snappy vinyl roof.

And that still doesn’t cover half of what you can order. El Camino’s got you covered on power too. Work from two Sixes and five V8’s up ta 350 horses. Get the message across with one of five manual and two automatic transmissions.

Get the work out in a roomy half-ton cargo box. Et Camino’s long list of new and standard safety items is another strong paint. Includes the GM-developed energy-absorbing steering column and four-way hazard warning flasher. Flash a look at El Camino…

The broad appeal of the ’65 El Camino

El Camino is doing lots of things for lots of people — beautifully. It’s proving to have wide appeal.

That’s because it offers a body (by Fisher) that’s good-looking enough to be seen anywhere and, at the same time, a chassis and pickup box that are made for work.

El Camino will transport you pleasurably, like a fine car, then turn right around and do the chores like a light-duty truck.

Ranchers, suburbanites, salesmen, farmers and many others are enjoying El Camino today. It carries up to 1,200 lbs. of payload, and can be ordered with bucket seats, air conditioning, 4-speed transmission, power windows, power steering and transistorized radio. Also, deep-pile carpeting, tachometer and other extras that will add to your enjoyment.
