Redneck Hillbilly Ride

Ranchero and ElCaminos were marketed to mobile auto service businesses, service stations, handymen, and others.

This was primarily to keep those damn ugly work trucks from invading neighborhoods in an era when trucks were just not accepted in driveways.

In the 60s they became popular with ranchers in the south for their ride over long distances (think Texas) and their versatility. On the west coast, they made excellent tow vehicles that doubled as a second car that "SHE" would not be ashamed to drive----surfboard haulers----cars to drag racing with that had dlower insurance rates than their 6-passenger sister car.

Rides like a car and will still carry a 1/2 ton of cargo---altho not as surely as the full size truck.

I like 'em----have 2----
the 59 with a 454HO and a Tremec is by no means a "lesbian" car, doubt if it can even be called a girlie truck.

the 66 could fall into the girlie thing tho---as it is my intent to power it with a 307--but the 5-spd should at least step it up to "dork" class

Another upside to the Elky/Ranchero----cannot be forced to carry more than one person at any given time (2 with a bench). ---- Easier and faster to clean out----easier and faster to hide stuff behind the seat. -- Excellent for hauling stuff that is too big for the T-Bird but not big enough for a so called real truck. And yes, I have a couple of real pick-ups as well.

Car?????, Truck??????, ----- Who Cares?????

79 C-10
64 C-10
82 D-150
05 Ranger XLT
59 ElCamino----see my avatar-----has TRUCK license plates
66 ElCamino

And all but the 66 are runners---the 66 is being reconstructed.

I think they were originally created for businessmen that needed some bed space. If memory serves me.....I've even seen a 36 Chevrolet Car that had a factory bed option in place of the trunk.....a sort of car/truck.

Can anyone explain it better? Surely someone knows why and when they were built.

I personally like them.

The first El Camino was produced for the 1959 model year (two years after the Ford Ranchero) and, like the Ranchero, was based on an existing and easily modified platform, namely the new-for-1959 Brookwood two-door station wagon and corresponding sedan delivery variant; unlike those more pedestrian versions, the El Camino was available with any trim level and drivetrain option corresponding to the car line, including that of the Chevrolet Impala. This was also the first year of the flamboyant "batwing" full-sized Chevrolet which sold in fewer numbers than more conservatively styled Fords

The Ford Ranchero was a pickup truck or coupe utility produced between 1957 and 1979 based on full-size, compact and intermediate automobiles by the Ford Motor Company for the North American market.

I threw in a few "proto type" s that never made it into production.

Here is another link worth reading.

http://www.chevelles.com/elcamino/index.html

I might add a "red neck hillbilly ride" is kinda a double negative.

Seems that it might have been a Idea in 1954 by Cadillac what do "Y'ALL " think about this one?

Cadillac & Hillbilly?

ELVIS!
