Spotted in Japan: A 1975 Chevrolet El Camino SS

February 09, 2013

The ute is a body style very close to my heart. I'm Australian and Australia has had its fair share of utility-trucks/pickups over the course of its automotive history.

This ElCamino Pickup was built in 1975. It has a 5,735cc V8 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
