Classic Car Overview

No available in our Gateway Dallas Showroom is this phenomenal 1959 Chevrolet El Camino, You will be interested in this car, youre getting one of the absolute finest resto-mods weve ever seen, a car that does everything well and offers zero compromises. If you want one of the best El Caminos in existence, dont hesitate here because its even better than its price tag would suggest. The colors look right on the dramatic 59 Chevy shape, although theyre modern finishes: Tectonic Silver with Crystal Claret inserts. Where a lot of modern colors dont look right on vintage iron, this Elky totally nails it with a subtle and sophisticated look that belies the monster living within. Bodywork is exemplary, with nary a flaw to be found on the car without looking with a magnifying glass. Were hesitant to call any car perfect, but even in the pictures you can see that cubic dollars were spent to make this car as close to that ideal as possible. Gaps are even, there are hundreds of hours wrapped up in the block sanding, and the two-stage urethane finish has been buffed to an impossibly high shine. Theres a cool cowl-induction hood and a billet grille, but those seem to be the lone modifications, and on something thats already outrageous looking, its probably best to leave it alone. Of course, the bed was beautifully finished with polished wooden floor boards just to make things interesting and all the chrome, emblems, and lenses were refinished to show standards. This car just sparkles. The burgundy leather interior eschews 1959 and brings it right into the 21st century, starting with a set of comfortable bucket seats and a custom center console. The unmarked seats are as comfortable as anything in showrooms today and the workmanship is again exemplary throughout. A tilt column with a billet steering wheel wrapped in matching red leather makes it easy to get comfortable and all the creature comforts are included: A/C, power windows, power steering, power brakes, and a great-sounding AM/FM/CD stereo hidden out of sight in the console so the dash wasnt cut. Even the gauges were custom made for this car, offering beautiful vintage-looking faces in the same Claret hue. The factory dashboard remains intact, one of the better designs of the period so it was important to keep it, and custom storage space behind the seats is cleverly done. The engine is a thumping 572 cubic inch GM crate motor and its situated in a super sanitary engine bay. Youll note the hoses are very neatly routed and the wiring is out of sight, so all you see is the hardware. Up top theres a Holley double pumper 4-barrel carburetor and a serpentine belt drive system manages the accessories. With 620 horsepower on tap, this Elky is definitely a hauler, but with a big aluminum radiator and electric fan, it stays cool even in traffic. Coated exhaust manifolds feed a custom dual exhaust system with side exits just ahead of the rear wheels, and theres a disc brake at all four corners. The front suspension is augmented with tubular control arms, while a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and a 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears and a Posi inside make it an easy cruiser on the highway and a threat on the street. The stance is ideal and those 18-inch Billet Specialties wheels were custom painted to match the car, a very cool look. The engine (and the build) have 1400 proven street miles on them, so its fresh, fresh, fresh and ready to win some shows at just about any level. Weve never seen better, and we bet you havent either.
