1959 Chevrolet El Camino
Why This Car Is Special
The Chevrolet El Camino was a pickup/coupe utility vehicle that was produced by Chevrolet between 1959–60 and 1964–1987 and was introduced in the 1959 model year in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero pickup.
Unlike a standard pickup truck, the El Camino was adapted from the standard two-door Chevrolet station wagon platform and integrated the cab and cargo bed into the body.
We have a special 1959 Chevrolet El Camino here at Skyway Classics with all the great looks of the original, with the iconic 348 cubic inch engine, and upgraded with many more features.
Ours is powered by a 348 cubic inch V-8 engine dressed to kill with finned aluminum valve covers and matching air cleaner, performance plumbing, chromed power steering and brake units, Vintage Air Conditioning, and sits in a perfect cleaned, painted and detailed engine compartment.
It rides on large chrome 5-spoke American Racing wheels with disc brakes and black wall radial performance tires and the engine is backed by a rare four-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter.
The interior is professionally done with a two-tone and body paint matching rose upholstery on the bench seat, matching rear cargo area, door panels, and carpet, all the correct factory gauges in its own round pod with the auxiliary gauges flanking a large centrally-mounted speedometer.
It has an updated sound system and the neatly installed Vintage A/C system with vents under the dash, the beautiful factory two-tone steering wheel, seatbelts, and of course the mean looking Hurst floor shifter and ball.
This desirable first year El Camino has been an older frame-on restoration and was finished in gorgeous Rose Metallic paint with white upper body paint showcasing the body lines all the way from the front to the one year only teardrop tail lights on the sleek tailfins.
It has a matching painted bed with the custom cover on it and the total package looks great from the great panel fit, and super straight bodywork back to the massive wrap-around rear window, chrome bumpers and stainless, all show well.
This iconic 1959 Chevrolet El Camino we have here at Skyway Classics with that dramatic cantilevered roof and gullwing tailfins, is simply stunning looking.
It is rare, beautiful, and an American icon that will serve you well as a collectable classic.
