Those early El Camino's were on a station wagon platform and they used 15" wheels.

Let's see that means you were born around 1951 or 2. I have underwear
older than that! And some haven't been washed yet!

Ok here's a little hub cap education for all of us..... thanks to google. A 55 cameo used the same hub caps as the 55 belair, the 56 cameo used the same wheel cover as the 56 belair. AND the 60 "deluxe" model pickups used the 56 belair covers also.

Here's the link if anyone wants to read any further Wheel and Covers – Jim Carter Truck Parts

Ya'll finally got it

Had to go ahead and give a strong hint or it may have gone on for days.

I remember when the redesigned '60 p/u came out. There was one around town with the fancy wheel covers. At the time, I thought the guy had put a set of '56 hubcaps on it to make it stand out. Didn't even realize they came on it.

I recently stumbled on the history and the memory of the guy around town came back to me. Almost all P/u's at the time just had the small center caps. Dam, that was over 50 yrs. ago, I'm getting old.

Kelly, You have the floor. BUT somebody really needs to post an image of the '60 truck with those caps, I just can't find a picture. Call it a bonus question. Nolan

I tried but the closest I came to finding one turned out to be a model. I did find a 63 with full covers that look right. I can't find anything that says they are appropriate for that year though.
There was a consensus a while back not to let a question drag out more than 24 hours. We seem to lose people if it lasts to long. If I'm mistaken please tell me so. Maybe 48 hours would be better?
This was a excellent question that had me coughing up answers out of desperation! I bought and sold a lot of those 60-62 pickups years ago to make money. I liked pickups because you only had reupholster one seat! I never saw those wheel covers on any one of them. You learn something ever day!

this is a 60 with correct hubcaps ,,1960 and 1961 looks the same 63 looks like a 64-66 exept 63 has round headlight rims 64 -66 rims are larger an square with rounded corners,,mabe this will help its all i can find --if i remember correct62 looked like a 60 exept had single headlights. I think the one you have is correct 1960.

The main difference on those early trucks was the hood. If I remember right the 64-66 had a flatter windshield and that affected dash, doors and cowl. I always liked the 60 hood. Lumpty lump.

Let me toss a Corvette question out there. Most of the 1955 Corvette's had the new 265 in them . Only a handful of 6 cylinder cars where produced. Other than the obvious engine differences. what major component was different between these cars? I'm not talking about options.
As a side question, how many 6 cyl. Corvette's were produced in 1955?
