RealRides of WNY - 1973 El Camino

Sometimes in the middle of summer we need a reminder that it’s not always so hot around here. A few winters ago we came across this 1973 Chevy El Camino in hibernation in a Niagara Falls lot. This was the first year for GM’s colonnade styling, and IMO it translated pretty well to the Chevy (and GMC) car/truck. All ’73 El Camino models came with V8 power: a 307 was standard, and two 350s and a 454 were on the option list. Base interiors were pretty plebeian (right, top), but you could order an all-vinyl bench in one of five hues, or opt for the SS package and a pair of vinyl-covered bucket seats in one of those same colors (right, bottom).
