(Chevrolet photo)

Note forward-sloping front fenders and "fastback" roof. This particular model is the "SS-396". 1968 was the first year that an SS El Camino was available. Specific to the SS was the black grill and black lower body sides. "SS/396" emblems were affixed to the grill and tailgate. The SS package also featured the Corvette-style rally wheels. 1968 is the only year befrore 1978 that the El Camino SS was a separate model . In subsequent years (up until 1978), the SS El Camino was really a Custom El Camino with an SS option package.
