59 elcamino

Recommended Posts

cause its not quite stock but not what I would call custom. Pretty much box stock using the 409 other than that some nice rough cast spoked cragars(?) with molded on valve stems and some big resin brakes out back. Color is pearl white and it will have the roof and scallops the same color as the aircleaner.

Thanks Kevin, well since you last seen this its been for a swim in the easy off ocean as it appears my BMF was stickier than my paint ( the paint turned out so well that I foiled it a bit too soon I think and before clearing and whel pulling off the excess pulled off some paint). Not a happy camper. But back in pearl white with roof and hood colored ,will leave a couple more days then paint the scallops on the sides

Sweet Elky...love it....

But...FYI...those aren't Cragars, they are American Racing Torque Thrusters

Also..hey, my folks are from Auckland, so I'm kinda partial to Kiwi's....:lol:

Looking good. I really like the work you did on the chassis. Can't wait to see it done.

I have always wanted to buid one of these elkys as a shop truck with a rusty old model a body and a pair of frame rails in the back, being taken back to the shop to be hotrodded.

Nice start to a car/truck I love! I actually watched an idiot kid pull a dumb and dumber movie scene by backing up with the door open and hit something and bend the door almost to the fender. I wish I could have taken it and told him he does not deserve it. Any hoot Nice colors too.
