1959 Chevrolet El Camino 409 Dual quads
You are looking at a real cool 1959 Chevy El Camino, the build cost was over $100,000 and several years to complete, it was a Good Guys show winner. This car is a show and play car not a daily driver. The motor is a 1962 409 with dual 4bbl carbs, it was pulled apart a built by Dave Plubell and was machined .030 over, crane hydraulic cam installed; the 690 heads received a set of Crane performance valves and springs with Crane 1.75 roller rockers. The 409 crank was ground.030 inches. The connecting rods were magna-fluxed, inspected, then shot peened. The result is 425 hp on premium pump gas, has the sound and power you would expect plus the ability to run the vintage air system. The Lenco 4 speed is the ultimate over kill, with the Mcleod two disc clutch its built to withstand up to 1200hp. Its fun to operate, no clutch needed to power shift between gears, it has a sun gear, planetary set up, just plain bullet proof. The sub frame was modified to handle 425 hp. It has two inch drop spindles up front and coil overs in the rear with a four link built by Peyton Chassis. The airride technologies pneumatic springs allow the ride height to be lowered or raised by the push of a button. The wheels are 15x7” Torque thrust in the front and 15x15” in the rear. The bed was covered by blond Kaboom Veneer separated by polished stainless stringers and tinted to match the body color. The body was prepped, made laser straight and covered with PPG fire mist orange, the body moldings were airbrushed on by Rodney Hutchison in Houston Texas, incredible three dimensional body molding and emblems. Craig Ward of forever Texas did the full custom interior, with a leather console to house the 5 lenco shifters. The Dakota digital gauges were installed inside the unique factory gauge bezels. The flip down ash tray exposes the air ride technology control panel. A chromed I did it steering column is capped with a 14” leather covered billet specialties' steering wheel. The vintage a/c keeps the interior cool and the Ron Francis wiring harness links everything together.
