seen something new

O.K. I know this is a Ford sight so don't go off on me lol. Going to work in the mornings I have passed What looks like an early 60's el comino but it is badged as a pontiac. I have looked on line but found no reference to this type of truck and thought that you Ranchero guys might know if it is for real or just someone playing with the badgeing. Any info on this thing would be great as it is driving me insine not knowing and even though it is a gm I thought I had a pretty good grasp of what was ou there lol.

That's interesting....
I wonder if was actually one, or if someone just made a clone with some badges.

The first years of El Camino front clips could be changed from Chevy to Pontiac. A lot of the years back then the sheetmetal would line up with the doors and look like they were stock. So it could be a clone.
I know we had a 66 Beaumont and the parts interchanged with the Chevelles. You could easily make a Beaumont a Chevelle or vise versa.
Even ford car you could put a T-bird front clip ona LTD II and it would look stock.

I grew up in Detroit and it wasn't unusual to see some older car that someone had cut the back off and made into a ranchero, el camino, type vehical out of almost anything.
Some of these were done fairly well but most looked like someone cut the back off a car.
It was common to see all sorts of wierd designs on the road at one time because it was once the auto kingdom and everybody was fooling around with style.
The best custom stuff was from California.
