I am restoring a '59 El Camano and have questions about equpment. My info comes from a Oct 1, 1958 Chevrolet publication.
1. Was there other publications dated after 10-58.
2. Were both A/C systems ( in-dash and under-dash) listed in the Chevy Car brosure available?
3. Was up-graded interior trim levels available?
4. Is a restoration Authenticity Manual available?
Thanks for any help you may have.

Factory AC was available
Dealer installed Factory type AC was available
Dealer installed under dash AC was available using all GM stuff under the hood.

I have been told that anything available in the passenger car line was available in the ElCamino
Power Windows
Power Brakes
Power Seat--------why??
Padded Dash

As for the seat covering, door panels, and flooring----not absolutely positive
Carpet and cloth seats may have been available, but the car is still just a Biscayne with BelAir side trim.
