Introduced in the 1959–1960 model years in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero, its first run lasted only one year.
Production resumed for the 1964–1977 model years based on the Chevelle platform, and continued for the 1978–1987 model years based on the GM G-body platform.
Although based on corresponding Chevrolet car lines, the vehicle is classified and titled in North America as a truck.
