No LT1 in there. That is a '93 wagon they used for that project.

If GM built it as a styling exercise, it could have anything in it, so an LT1 wouldn't surprise me...I think the original SS Jon Moss car had the 93 dash too?

I'd put a big push bar on the front and then horns on the push bar.

Yea that was awesome; it came on the same trailer as the 510SS concept. When I get home from work I've got a whole bunch more pics of this "El Camino SS" I can post.

Um, as an ex-Holden driver, I gotta disagree. Holden came out with this bodystyle in 1951. That predates the first ElCamino by 8 years, I believe.

I was going to say the same thing. The 59 El Camino was based on the Holden version, and I think it was based on the 59 Impala/biscane, not a midsize
Model like in later years.

That's why having a full 59 full size fleet would be so cool! a vehicle for every need was available on the same platform. truck, coupe, family sedan, convertible, wagon. You name it.

Doesnt matter which company came up with it first. The above mentioned inbred vehicle is uglier than a stock looking RMS! No thank you.

Ha, I think GM sold off that bright green 72 Impala in the background a year or two ago in some auction...for a pretty good deal too...I think it had very low miles or something.

And a few other pictures from the same GM factory collection. I think I posted the 510SS pics before.

Thanks Bill, those pictures are all very nice. I like the El Camino SS, it would be nice to have the one of one, but if it was regular production and there were a bunch running around, it'd lose some cool factor.

Does anybody know anything about those wheels?
Size (width x diameter) , backspacing, brand, currently in production???

Does anybody agree that the "C"-pillar could be wider and trail back more swoopy like on the 68-72 Elky's?
I think it would look better (cleaner) with 95-96 door mirrors also.
And while their at it, why not make it have the full open later rear wheel well shape.
Were there any Chevy flower cars, cuz I've only seen the Caddy & Buick versions so far.

I don't know about that, that car is the only one that ever had those style truck-van Rallys from the factory on it, in white...lol.

I think those cars may have been restored...the factory didn't paint the underside of the hood satin black all perfect like that... Laughing

Machine,

They are ROH wheels. No details on sizing, etc. I do know that they are no longer in production though, and haven't been for years. They were the inspiration for the Impala wheel design.

They appear to be Ronals:

The concept is cool, but the conversion is extremely half-assed. They left the lower part of the rear doors on and did nothing for the trunk area besides cut the top of the lid off.
