The El Camino was designed to do everything well, and so this 1960 Chevrolet El Camino has been preserved and updated to continue the tradition in modern times. With bright paint, a cool/classic interior, upgraded small block power, and more, this is ready to be enjoyed and admired to the fullest.
Chevy's full-size offerings were looking long, lean, and luxurious in 1960. It only got more interesting when applying to a pickup style. The face was toned down from the outrageous '59s, and so the bright front end has a sleeker look that's amplified further by the wraparound chrome bumper. It all looks great set against a glossy application of a newer Horizon Blue with a touch of metallic. As you move further down, you notice more great elements like the curved glass for both the front and rear. The tailfins are so massive and integral, that they start at the door and don't end until the middle of the tailgate - an impressive feat for a pickup! Running the same length as the fin is the cool jet-inspired trim that's a hallmark of these premium Chevys. And while the bed is a cool feature to look at, this one also uses the added style to earn its keep. That's why you have full bed rails and a textured gray paint in the bed.
The sea of blue continues inside. It has been subtly upgraded with a striped blue cloth insert in the seats and matching martial on the doors. The full package is really for lovers of classic style. Everything from the heater control to the shape of the vent windows is pure vintage cool. The artful steering wheel has the unmistakable classic thin/grippy feel. And this Chevy is from the brief time when the gauge cluster looked like it was borrowed from a European sports car with the large speedometer flanked by all those round gauges.
The small block wasn't up to the legendary 350 displacement in 1960, but it fits in just as easily as the 283 did. And while they upgraded the motor, the bright air grabber and Mickey Thompson finned valve covers make sure that it still looks quite vintage. More than just a larger powerhouse, this one was built with a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a Cherry Bomb style dual exhaust for or a strong/solid V8. There are even good supporting components, like an HEI ignition, a newer alternator, and a large aluminum radiator. This one wants you to get a classic feeling for the road, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. But those iconic Cragar SS polished wheels also have modern tires for better cruising comfort.
It's hard to find an El Camino from these couple full-size years. So if you love a classic of distinction, you know you need this Chevy in your garage. Call today!!!
