I have a question about the history of the El Camino, one of my students has been doing research for a speech, and he has found that the El Camino was designed in 1960 but the first production model didn't come out until 1964???
Was this a problem with design or marketing???

Woolsey,
Welcome to the forums. Actually the El Camino was first produced as a 1959 and 1960 model as a quick response to the Ford Ranchero. It was based on the Impala. However due to poor sales, it was also quickly dropped.

Then with Ford's continued success of the Ranchero, Chevy tried again in 1964 this time basing the El Camino on the Chevelle/Malibu chassis. This time it was successful.
