For sale in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom is a show stopping 1960 Chevrolet El Camino. Call it a truck, call it a car, call it whatever you like. We call this vehicle awesome. Starting with the extravagant styling of the late 50â??s and early 60â??s, 1300 hours of labor went into custom body work, ensuring that the lines are laser straight and the paint is glass smooth. A couple touches most people will miss is that the chrome down the side of the car has been removed with the channel for it painstakingly filled and smoothed, and the 59 Cadillac taillights.. There is custom pinstriping throughout the body, and the steel gray with black roof has a lot of curb appeal. The Boyd Coddington wheels are a one-off set, 20â? in the front, 22â? in the rear. Underneath, the one-off parts continue with a custom made Art Morrison Chassis with a Super Delux front end. There is a Strange 9 in. rear end with 3.73 gears, and 4 link setup with coilovers at all four corners. The rear end has been tubbed as well. Willwood discs at all 4 corners cap off a package that makes a surprisingly great handling car for this size. Of course, you donâ??t build a chassis like this if you donâ??t plan on moving around quickly. That is why there is a Blueprint Engines 383 CID Stroker hiding under the custom forward tilt hood. Making 430 hp, and 460 ft. lbs. of torque, it is plenty of motivation for this big hot rod. The engine is supported by an aluminum radiator with an electric fan, Sanderson headers, and 3â? stainless steel exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers. Behind that is the time tested TH350 automatic transmission.
Inside is a very comfortable place to command the road from, with custom leather bucket seats, and alligator accents all around. The Vintage Air keeps things cool and comfortable, while the power rack and pinion steering and tilt column make steering effortless. With just 2,530 miles since all of this incredible work was done, this fresh and ready to run.
