This book tells the El Camino story through contemporary road and comparison tests plus model introductions and includes full technical and specification data. The El Camino made its debut in 1959 but was dropped between 1961 and 1963. The 1968 range was the first to carry a Super Sport option and the seventies also saw an estate derivative. Both disappeared after 1977 with the arrival of emissions regulations. Later models did not disappoint however, and the variants of the early eighties were to the forefront of the latest developments. Models covered: the 283, 327, 348, 305, 350, 396, Ss 396, Trimatic, 454, 4100 auto, Turbo diesel and Super Sport.
