1959 Chevrolet El Camino Stunning Resto 283 V8 Factory AC Power Brakes PS 3Speed

Here we have a 1959 Chevrolet El Camino for sale. This was the first year for the El Camino tabbed as being “more than a car – more than a truck” It's held very dear in the classic car market today as it was a pioneer for vehicles that followed, but it had all the iconic styling of the late '50s and early '60's classics making it rare and desirable. The one we have for you has undergone a stunning frame up restoration giving you a breathtaking '59 El Camino that has taken home numerous trophies and awards. You'll be hard pressed to find another El Camino in the country that's heart stopping as this one is. The body is laser straight down the sides with near perfect fit of every panel. We can see the body lines come together in perfect harmony, all the gaps are even and symmetrical, and that the panel fit is near flawless. Both the doors, hood and tailgate all open and close with ease. It's showcased by the Gothic Gold paint that's been redone in base coat clear coat. It has a mirror finish as countless hours were spent polishing it out to be slick as a ribbon. High or low, every panel has had the same meticulous approach at delivering a quality finish. The Gold is accented by all of the iconic stainless and chrome that adorns this '59. Every piece has a near perfect finish as it all looks to have been replaced or refinished at the time of the restoration. Inside the bed is all rock solid and is painted body color. It also features the black bed covers and a custom set of black carpet to protect the floors while hauling anything to your cruise in or shows. All the glass in this Chevrolet is equally impressive along with having had all the seals and weather stripping replaced. To finish off the look it sports the classic look with the fender skirts, Steel Wheels, New Hubcaps, and White Line Tires from Coker.
Next, we will look at the interior of this El Camino. The interior is done in the classic black that flows perfectly with the exterior. It has an original feel and appearance that will take you straight back in time to '59. The door panels both look amazing and feature the crank window and vent window. All the accents are in great shape along with the handles. This Chevrolet is set up with the low back bucket seats that were with new covers and padding. Looking at the dash it's all beautiful from the paint finish to the gauges. It features the factory gauges along with the under-dash tach and the pair of Oil Pressure and Amp Gauges. This '59 has the cross-flag steering wheel along with having the factory style knobbed radio. We can also see it's set up with the factory “3 on the Tree” column shift that functions with ease. All of the carpet was redone along with the new seal plates and a new headliner.
Finally, we will get to the heartbeat of this Chevrolet. Under the hood it's powered by the all correct appearing 283 V8 Engine. The attention to detail under here is amazing. We can see the inner fenders and firewall are just as slick as the rest of the paint. This 283 is set up with Power Steering along with Power Brakes. It also has the factory AC with original styled compressor along with having the factory style generator. This 283 is dressed out with chrome valve covers and air cleaner. For exhaust it has manifolds with new dual pipes and the factory style mufflers the run out the back. When we look under this '59 shows how well it's been cared for. All the pans look amazing and along with the x frame that's all in great condition. The body braces and all the bushings are in great condition as well. The 283 runs through the 3-speed manual trans and the stock style rear end. You couldn't ask for a better cruiser on the highway as it goes through the gears with ease and is a blast to drive. If you're looking for a true to its roots '59 then you don't want to miss the opportunity on this one. It'll have you cruising back in time as you make new memories everywhere you go!
