1959 Chevrolet El Camino 348 CI V-8 engine


Description


348 CI V-8 engine
4-speed transmission
Black Onyx Pearl with Gray leather interior
Power steering and brakes
Dual exhaust
Be Cool radiator with auxiliary fan
Steel wheels with spinner hub caps
Wide White tires
Custom made tonneau cover
The immediate predecessor of the notorious 409 packages, this example is the 348 CI version, complete with period chrome dress-up parts and a tri-power carburetion layout tucked under individual air cleaners. Also in keeping with the idea of performance, the engine is backed by a floor-shifted 4-speed manual transmission. Nonetheless, for many enthusiasts, the highlight for 1959 was the El Camino’s special styling, with sharp-edged fins and a near-custom car appearance right from the factory thanks in part to select but prominent chrome accents. With its split-wave rear design, the bed treatment is unmistakable as it stretches rearward, equipped here with a custom-made tonneau cover making it functional for storage or travel use. The body is covered in a rich Black Onyx Pearl paint, accented by the invitingly-plush gray leather interior. This machine has both power steering and brakes, with a Be Cool radiator with auxiliary fan blended in for added durability. Riding on steel wheels, there are tri-point spinner wheel covers and wide whitewall tires, and to complete this picture of excellence, dual exterior spotlights and mirrors. Ready for a fun cruise or car-show event, this is a black beauty with unique styling.
