Originally introduced in 1959 as a competitor to the successful Ford Ranchero, the El Camino took a brief hiatus before being reintroduced on the Chevelle platform in 1964. In fact, many may forget that models existed before the Chevelle El Camino! A timeless classic indeed, this unique truck/car combination vehicle has captured the heart of Americans for decades.
This 1960 El Camino has been restored in a tasteful and largely original fashion sure to appeal to any true car enthusiast. Whether you like unique vehicles, or you want something similar to what you remember from back in the day, this El Camino is sure to deliver. The exterior of this El Camino is clean and straight, a feat not easy to pull off with body lines like these! Getting a vehicle like this to take on this appearance requires skill, and the restoration of this car/truck was very well executed. Take this puppy out for a cruise, and you'll be sure to turn heads anywhere you go in this eye-catching pickup!
Under the hood is a Chevy 283 V8 engine; factory correct for this El Camino. Though not quite as much a storied veteran as the 350 small block, the 283 is similarly reliable and easy to service. While this car may not be a hot rod, the 283 is adequate power to move this car with ease. This truck runs as good as it looks! The engine is hooked up to a 4-speed manual transmission; a combination certain to deliver as many smiles per gallon as possible. Cruising around town in this '60 Chevy makes for a good time, every time. Contrary to popular belief, the four wheel manual drum brakes stop this vehicle quite well and are more than adequate for the application. If you're looking to feel in touch with your vehicle while driving, this is the car for you.
The interior has been refinished and is in great condition! Given that this is an older restoration The seat is in excellent condition as is the dash. As a whole, the interior is largely original in appearance. There's something about this color that really takes you back in time! The four-speed shifter has the classic look required for a car like this, and really completes the look of the interior.
If you're looking for a clean El Camino that is turn-key cruiser ready, look no further. The blue on blue combination really suits this vehicle and the four-speed/283 combination makes it a classic driving machine. If you need is a '60 El Camino, this El Camino needs you!
