got the Impala Feb 2013, this was my 4th finned chevy but was bored cause it was finished, around Apr. got the ElCamino it had an older restoration. at first wanted to keep it in driver condition but one thing led to anoughter and anoughter now I'm at the stage of doing a frame swap and replacing the rear seat pan and then the Quarters.(has the fiber glass and 2 inchs of bondo back there). Who knew the repairs that I did in my teens in the 70s would come back to haunt me in my 50s Ha Ha.

Does your El Camino still have the original seat fabric and door panels? I'm trying to find out what they looked like so I can restore mine.

No, one of the previous owners changed the seat to a early Cadillac 60/40 elec. bench. all the Elkys that I've seen or knew were original, had just a pretty much plane vinyl with stamping design. if you watch videos on -you-tube- you can find a old barn find video that'll have good ref pics. just type in 1959 ElCamino . should find something there or carsonline-ads.com hope this helps.

We're fine. We've finally landed in a new home north of Chicago. We still own the Impala but it's on consignment at Gateway Classics for sale. I'll leave it there through the winter and if not sold, I'll remove it and drive it.

I hate the air ride and wheels so I'll make some changes if that happens.

Hey Guy's thought I'd introduce myself and my car...
Hey guys names Phil from Melbourne Australia...
Just purchased this 59 Aussie Delivered vehicle from a cousin while I was taking my Dad on a trip up the country to see a few relatives...

We stopped in on one for a quick chat, hadn't seen him for 30 years or so.
He said I hear your into Jaguars? to which I replied only for work my real love is american cars.
He turned to me and said follow me out to the shed. And this is what I found hidden under around 3 years of dust...

Anyway I hope to become a regular around here...

Cheers Phil

We left with my mind ticking away, with a sleep overnight and a chat with my good lady wife.
Dad and I headed back the 5 hours journey by train to collect the old girl.
You'll notice in the above images all the cat paw marks...
Took me a good 10 hours to buff all the scratches out....But she now looks sweet again....

[/URL]



After a good tub and detail....















And the paint after 10 hours buffing a few deep cat scratches remain, but she's come up a treat..

Hi Guys,
Here’s my 1959 Impala that I have been slowly restoring since I bought it in 1995. It came from Turlock, Calif., and came with factory options; 348 tri power all original, power steering, power brakes, power seat and power windows, as well as dual antennas, and the original spinner wheelcovers, that had been engraved by the original owner with the licence plate number. I also found a factory wonderbar radio that I have restored to full operating condition.
I have gathered a fair bit of NOS and repro parts, did not do a ground up as it did not need it. The car was rust free and no accident damage. Not many of these around here, that’s for sure!
Thanks, John

Nice looking 59

Purchased my new 1959 2 door Biscayne a couple of months after graduating high school. My folks took over my $50.00 payment when I joined the Navy the end of 1960. It was a 283 3 speed on the column.
Don't know what became of it, but probably traded it on on their next car.
