1973 Chevrolet El Camino

Chevrolet dominated the muscle car market in the sixties and the seventies, because they stuck to a magic formula of success: most performance for least amount of money. The 1973 Chevy El Camino was one of their muscle cars that was oblivious to Ford’s success with their lineup of high power vehicles. It was a competitive brand name that was appealing to car-buyers because of its performance/price ratio; the Chevy El Camino certainly made history.

1973 Chevrolet El Camino

The 1973 Chevrolet El Camino was equipped with a V8, 245 horse power engine (at 4000RPM). They made under 65,000 of them, making this model way rarer than their predecessors. The Chevy El Camino lineup actually started in 1959, with the first edition featuring an Impala-like design. It was the old-school pickup truck: half-car, half-flatbed; although it didn’t survive past 1960, it re-emerged four years later as the Chevy Chevelle. The 1960 Chevrolet El Camino had a makeover, but it still resembled the Impala a lot. In 1965, when the brand re-emerged, the car came standard with a 250 horse power engine, which could be upgraded to 350 horse powers for just another $200. The 1966 version saw two additional 327 power options; although Chevy Chevelle came with a 375hp option, this was not the case for the El Camino. Special consoles could be ordered upon request.

This American muscle car boasted two calibrated springs designed to support two shock springs at each wheel. In 1967, besides the air-adjustable shock absorbers, not much changed about the Chevrolet El Camino besides the exterior design. Skipping a few years ahead, the 1970 Chevy El Camino came with support for 454 engines, capable of cranking out up to 450 horse powers with optional upgrades.

So, as you can see, the 1973 Chevrolet El Camino underwent major changes, as well as many power performance upgrades and optional functionality for those who wanted to spend a little extra to get the best of the best. The 1970 model could zoom through a quarter mile in 13.44 seconds at 108.17 mph. The 1973 model improved upon that even more. Also, the 1973 Chevy El Camino sported single headlights rather than double headlights like its predecessors. This American muscle car also came with a new grille, an increased length, and bumper-positioned turning lights. Although it could no longer fit as much stuff inside, the newer curved design was a hit upon its introduction on the market in 1973.
