1959 Chevrolet El Camino

This car was already a rare breed right off the showroom floor. The multitude of factory options made for an atypical—and expensive—model

Patterned after the all-new 1959 passenger cars, the El Camino pickup earned immediate popularity as a versatile workhorse. Power windows, a power seat, air conditioning, and power steering put this good-looking and loaded Crown Sapphire version squarely in the luxury category, with a Tri-Power 348-ci V8, automatic transmission and full instrumentation adding a performance edge.
