Cool colors inside & out, four-wheel disc brakes, and serious big block muscle under the hood are all part of the awesome build that make up this 1959 Chevrolet El Camino.
A first-year El Camino is already a desirable classic. It has the wild look of Chevy's full-sized offering where the '59 redesign had some of the most daring styling ever put to sheetmetal. You'll love going over all the style lines that flow into deep creases as they create standout styling elements like the pontoon fenders and huge tailfins. You can see all this nicely thanks to the Space Blue Metallic paint borrowed from a more modern Cadillac. It highlights every curve the moment the sunshine hits this classic. You'll love the factory pieces like the bright chrome bumpers/trim, dual jet-inspired hood ornaments, and the curved glass wrapping around both the front and rear. And the tailgate with the deep “V” design is a true work of art. And as you start to notice the lowered suspension with competition-style torque thrust wheels, you'll begin to realize this is more than just a looker.
The interior has a terrific custom appearance. It starts with a gray and white two-tone bench seat, and this theme continues on the doors and dash. This has a great classic look with bright trim, classic Impala steering wheel, and sporty gauges package. Of course the added Moon tach that's dominating the dash really gets you ready for something special under the hood.
The engine bay is a clean and mean setup. You're looking at 496 cubic-inches of big block power. This V8 is further enhanced by a large Quick Fuel 1050 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Dart hi-rise intake, aluminum heads, and long tube headers feeding the growling dual exhaust. You even have the right supporting components, like an aluminum radiator, MSD electronic ignition, and a custom integrated fuel cell. Since this is seriously powerful package, you also have stout pieces like the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and Ford 9-inch rear end. You'll even spot a custom rear with boxed steel in a C-channel in place of the old X-frame! And making sure this powerful package has the best stopping power is an upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes.
You're looking at a truly distinct and powerful Chevy. So if you like to get attention in your classic, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
