Second Generation. 1964-1967

In 1964 the Elky was built on the Chevelle platform, rather than the Impala. The Chevelle promised to be the "car of the future" and the El Camino was described as "the personal pickup." It was used primarily as a light utility truck, with a straight six-cylinder as the standard power plant and a V8 as an option. Some who opted to purchase the multi-purpose edition, had the foresight to include the luxuries of the famed Super Sport. The SS package wasn't available until 1967, but if the buyer ordered the appropriate options, he could have the same features, comfort, and power as the SS models.


In 1964 the El Camino was the "mini-truck" of its day. It was small enough that average Americans had room for it in their garage, but it was handier then a sedan or wagon as a grocery or parts-getter.

The Chevelle-based Elky was a hit in its first year. Even the fancy Custom listed for under $2,500 and all El Caminos were available with a long list of the same options available on the Chevelle from V-8 engines to air conditioning.

The 1966 styling looked even better than the previous incarnation. It retained the classic character, but had the smoother, rounder lines of its parent Chevelle. An optional 396-CID big block Turbo-jet V-8 was available for the first time.
