28: 1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS
Few classic muscle cars are as popular as the El Camino SS. During the time that the El Camino hit the market, the car was a bit of a novelty. It wasn’t a full-size pickup truck and it wasn’t a compact truck. Instead, it was a performance car (Chevelle) that had a truck bed attached to it. The El Camino managed to gain a loyal following at the time, although the overall sales were never quite what GM had hoped for.
Maintenance of the El Camino is very affordable and these cars are generally reliable. The GM 350 V8 engine is one of the most iconic powerplants in the world. You’ll have more issues that arise out of the transmission than you ever will from the iconic engine. GM did a great job of designing these cars and parts are fairly easy to obtain.
