This 1959 Chevrolet El Camino boasts a robust replacement 409ci V8 engine mated to a three-speed automatic gearbox and is elegantly draped in a vibrant red hue. The powerhouse, installed in 1999, features a trio of two-barrel carburetors. Complementary components include long-tube exhaust headers, 15-inch Rally-style wheels, power-assisted front disc brakes, power steering, rear air shocks, front and rear sway bars, a white tonneau cover, a B&M shifter, an AM radio, and air conditioning. Significant replacements in 2021 include the radiator, water pump, fans, thermostat, distributor, and fuel tank. Acquired by the seller in April 2024, this El Camino is presented with service documentation and a clean Arizona title under the seller’s name.

The pickup, resplendent in red, features polished trim and bumpers, a white tonneau cover, “cat’s eye” taillights, a diamond plate bed floor, and replacement curved windshield and rear glass.

The 15-inch chrome-finished Rally-style wheels are shod with 245/60 Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tires. Braking duties are handled by power-assisted front discs, with additional amenities including power steering, rear air shocks, and front and rear sway bars. It is noted that the brake master cylinder and booster were replaced in anticipation of the sale.

Inside, the bench seat and door panels are reupholstered in gray cloth. The metal dashboard, repainted to harmonize with the exterior, includes a B&M shifter, an AM radio, a heater, and air conditioning.

Instrumentation comprises a 120-mph speedometer and gauges for fuel level, oil temperature, and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer displays 7k miles, though the speedometer drive gear has been replaced, leaving total mileage unknown.

The 409ci V8, rebuilt and installed in 1999, is equipped with three two-barrel carburetors and long-tube exhaust headers. Recent replacements in 2021 include the radiator, water pump, fans, thermostat, distributor, and fuel tank, with the alternator and air conditioning compressor also reportedly replaced recently. The seller mentions that the center carburetor occasionally sticks.

Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission.
