1964 El Camino Parts and Restoration Information

1964 El Camino Parts and Restoration Specifications

At the same time that Chevrolet introduced its new Chevelle on September 26, 1963, Chevrolet also decided to introduce a brand new version of its El Camino which originally made its debut in 1959. The 1964 Chevrolet El Camino front end was virtually identical to the Chevelle, but that’s about where the similarity stopped. Although the El Camino front sheet metal was based on the Chevelle frame, a pickup bed made up the rear of the El Camino sheet metal to provide the consumer with the ultimate versatility.

The 1964 El Camino trim was available in two levels including the base model El Camino and the El Camino Custom. The base level El Camino was similar in trim to a Chevelle 300 and lacked body side moldings. The El Camino Custom featured classier trim such as bright rocker panel moldings, wheel opening moldings, bright box moldings, chrome window moldings, and a chrome hood molding. Each configuration could be ordered with a six cylinder or V8 engine.

El Camino interior colors were Aqua, Red, or Light Fawn on base models and red or aqua for Custom models. The buyer could have ordered a number of different El Camino exterior colors including Tuxedo Black, Meadow Green, Bahama Green, Silver Blue, Daytona Blue, Azure Aqua, Lagoon Aqua, Almond Fawn, Ember Red, Saddle Tan, Ermine White, Desert Beige, Satin Silver, and Palomar Red.

Also differing from the Chevelle exterior were the El Camino emblems. These emblems decorated the rear quarter panels of the El Camino. The El Camino hood and tailgate featured the Chevrolet brand name and the El Camino fenders featured the Chevelle name.

To complement the wide variety of available colors were the available drive train combinations that could be opted for on the 1964 El Camino. Base power was had by a six cylinder engine. Buyers who wanted more power could opt for aV-8. Manual transmissions were either 3 speeds or 4 speeds and the only available automatic transmission was the 2 speed Powerglide.

About 32,500 1964 Chevrolet El Caminos were produced.
