It's not every day you will come across an American muscle car, what more one that is not a Ford Mustang. Whilst not my cup of tea, I can see the appeal of American muscle cars. They usually have big bodies strapped to a pushrod V8 engine, happily chugging down petrol like it was going out of fashion. Nothing shouts 'MURICA' like a good-old muscle car.

Today's rare find comes in the form of a 1972 Chevrolet El Camino. This is not just a muscle car, but a pick-up truck, a 2-door one at that! This is what you call a coupe utility muscle car. Yes, you can haul cargo in this El Camino whilst looking all stylish and fancy.

THe El Camino wasn't the first model of this type. In fact, it was created because Chevrolet saw the popularity of the Ford Ranchero, which was the first pick-up coupe. Nonetheless, it quickly went on to dominate this niche for many years.

So, if you fancy having this pick-up coupe in your life, this immaculate example you see is can be yours for a cool RM 158,000. It's completely road-legal and because of its age, you'd enjoy a 50% discount on your road tax. Don't dither too long, cars such as these do not appear on the market very often.
