It’s a solid truck that’s been treated to a full frame-off restoration.
To some, having “El Camino” and “pickup truck” in the same sentence is a bit strange. That’s because the vehicle doesn’t necessarily fit the mold of pickups today–what with their off-road styling cues and high ride height. The Chevy El Camino, like the Ford Ranchero for that matter, is essentially a two-door station wagon with its rear roof sections removed to open up like a pickup truck bed that could haul about a half-ton of cargo.
Whatever you want to call it, the car is pretty rad and dates back to the historic styling of yesteryear. And now is your chance to own your very own rare and unusual 1960 Chevrolet El Camino pickup truck. This beautiful example is currently up for sale through Silverstone Motorcars with just 500 miles on the build.
What you see here is a stunning frame-off restored 1960 Chevrolet El Camino Pickup from Texas. The car is dressed in a deep and rich black paint that shines at any angle and in any weather. The pristine, eye-catching red vinyl interior is a nice contrast to the dark exterior. All in all, this 1960 El Camino is a solid pickup in excellent condition and is ready for a new owner. Apart from providing miles of smiles, this car is sure to bring home many awards from local car shows.

Under the hood, this pickup is powered by a 283 cubic-inch V8 engine mated to a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. The restoration was just completed and has only break-in miles on her. The beauty has power disc brakes up front with new power steering and boosters. It was treated to a complete new exhaust with all-new body mounts as well. The car now sits on American Racing wheels wrapped in new tires to boot. Other highlighted features include a new front end, new rear quarters, all new glass, no Bondo, and the original tailgate.
The car firs right up, runs well, and drives perfectly. It was recently taken on a five-hour drive on highways and side roads alike, which confirmed its quality performance. This El Camino is not expected to last, so act fast if you are a fan and admirer of its unique beauty and classic essence.
