Third Generation El Camino

By Colin

AKA Butteredtoast

The third generation El Camino was introduced in 1968. The new car had a longer wheelbase and could accommodate bigger power plants, such as the SS396. Regulations introduced in 1971 reduced power and performance, and the double headlights were replaced by single headlights. Rob’s 68 El Camino took quite a hit. Joshua’s 70 "Hell Camino" is powered by a 396 that has been bored out to 402. Timothy has owned his orange 70 El Camino (pictured below) since eighth grade. And Nate’s 71 is getting a 383 stroker.

Definitely my favorite generation El Camino. Maybe because it reminds me of my other most “favoritest” car, the (beautiful) Chevelle. A buddy of mine owns a ’71 with a 396. Only one describes it: Wow.

Man, I love this gen of the El Camino. The SS396 is awesome. I came very close to buying a ’69 SS396, but its difficult to pull financing for a classic car. But ever since being around that car and test driving it I cant escape the desire for another chance at a 69 El Camino!
