1959 Chevrolet El Camino local two owner “barn find” the second owner bought it in 1969 and reluctantly has decided to now sell it because at 85 years old he has finally retired to live in Hawaii.

327 V8 275HP, 3 speed manual transmission, impossible to find with the FACTORY OVERDRIVE and “3 on the tree shift linkage”

For those in the crowd that are locals you probably will recognize this car from the yearly parades in Parkland and Sumner,  Harold LeMay tried for years to buy this El Camino and out of respect to Harold and the LeMay Family collection it is being offered for sale for the very first time since 1969!!!

1959 is the first year of the classic iconic El Camino, and it is the most sought after and collectable. Is it perfect ? No but if it was it would sell for a lot more than the very aggressive low reserve.

The El Camino is rarer than a 1959 Chevy convertible which has now become a $75,000 + car. One more important fact… These cars have gone up in value 5% in the last 60 days and over 30% since January and that is documented by CPI black book and other recognized publications.

The seller has brought this classic to the Lucky Auction to SELL!! So let’s sell the El Camino
