Question of the Day: Do you consider an El Camino a truck or a car?

Vote and give us your take in the comments section

-

Is a Chevrolet El Camino a car or a truck? I’ve been thinking about this concept sporadically for the last three decades and I switch my answer a lot. I guess I could go by how the El Cam’s vehicle type is determined by insurance companies and federal agencies, but alas I ponder this question like a dumber version of Socrates.

Dear readers, I need your help with this one. Do you consider an El Camino a truck or a car?

Vote and give us your take in the comments section. Like my high school history teacher always told me, “There are no wrong answers.”

My take? TBD, it’s an ongoing issue.

  1. I owned a 1977 El Camino. I bought it specifically to haul things. Here’s how I describe the one I had:

    It’s a truck, which has the front of a Chevrolet car and the smooth boat ride of a Cadillac!

  2. I own a 1959 Elcamino I have owned it for 44 years and Chevrolet has always maintain the the ElCamino is a car , but the sedan delivery version was only advertised and listed as a truck ??

  3. When I first read the question, ” Do you consider an El Camino a truck or a car?”. My first inclinations was to say, yes! I have owned several, 1 1967 (and a parts car) 1 1969 ( and a parts car) 2 1971’s (both drivers) and a 1978

  4. I have a 1972 El Camino for sale $60,000 always garaged. Grey with black stripes on hood and black vinyl top, original and looks great. It has a LT-1 Corvette engine 5.7 Liter.
