Basha Burwell caught the car in Brighton, MA across the river. The Sprint was a version of the El Camino sold by GMC truck dealers. I like the plain-janeness of this unit. I'm guessing 1971 or 1972. We have posted El Caminos from all over, including one I saw in the Netherlands; if you type El Camino in the search widget, you'll see a bunch going back to 1959.

From Alex Emond in southern Saskatchewan: "I saw this homely unit in Gravelbourg a while ago . Parked on display like there should be a "for sale" sign on it. Most utilitarian looking, with a face only a mother could love. It has the look of an oversized post war Japanese toy. In other words, pretty cool. Cheers--AE"
AL posted one of these trucks --but a B-100--from Vancouver a while back.
