1959 Chevrolet Orange El Camino
Why This Car Is Special
If you ever wanted a show-stopping custom car, then we have one
here for you at Skyway Classics that will knock your eyes out. It
is a custom completely restored 1959 El Camino with a GM crate 350
cubic inch engine, custom paint job and interior.
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.
Ours is powered by a GM crate 350 cubic inch V-8 engine dressed to
kill with chrome and polished parts including the open element air
cleaner assembly, valve covers and breathers, power steering and
power disc brake unit, custom high-performance radiator, serpentine
belt and pulley drive system, headers, spark plug looms, and
It has been upgraded with many more features like the fuel
injection, Vintage Air, performance plumbing, red performance spark
plug wires, dual exhaust, and sits in a perfect cleaned, painted
and detailed engine compartment.
The engine is backed by a Turbo Hydramatic 350 transmission and
puts the power to the ground and gives a great highway ride with
the 3:08 gears and the custom wide five-spoke chrome mag wheels
with disc brakes and fat blackwall tires on all four corners.
The interior is professionally done with a Custom leather ostrich
skin based theme with its dual plush tan bucket seats that provide
a plush feel and has lateral support too, air conditioning, custom
console with the armrest, cupholders, and shifter on the floor, a
polished "Ididit' tilt steering column with wood steering wheel,
body colored factory dash with factory and accessory gauges
flanking a large centrally-mounted speedometer, radio, and all
other knobs and controls, and a headliner and door panels with the
ostrich skin theme.
This desirable first year El Camino has had a top dollar
restoration and was painted in finished in gorgeous Prowler Orange
with pearl showcasing the body lines all the way from the front to
the one year only teardrop taillights on the sleek tailfins.
It has a matching painted bed with matching ostrich skin in the
center of the rear cargo area that really compliments the bed and
the exterior and rear of the car.
The total package looks great from the great panel fit, and super
straight bodywork back to the rear window, chrome bumpers and
stainless, all show well.
This iconic show-stopping custom restored 1959 El Camino we have
here at Skyway Classics has that dramatic cantilevered roof and
gullwing tailfins and is simply stunning looking.
It is rare, beautiful, and an American icon that will serve you
well as a collectable classic.
