Congrats 👏 as done deal Donny would say, "no pics, didn't happen"
Congrats Lenny , Can you tell us what color it is ? engine & tranny , A/C ?Looks like my wife and I just bought a 59 Camino The certified check for $ 38,000 is on the way to the buyer and by next week we are hoping to have it shipped to the Florida Keys . I got an email from a company of a new ad that was 1 day old and called right away . . After seeing the photos , reading the description and talking with the owner , we pulled the trigger . Once I know more next week , I will post some info . Hopefully it will be the one I have been dreaming about for years and not a disappointment . Thanks to all of you that were interested and so kind as to try and alert me to the right one . For the time being I plan on holding on to my great running 87 Camino and decide later on if I want or can afford to keep both rides . Thanks so much to all of you and more later
Love first Gens, 59s are nicer then 60s but it would have to have a 60 since it's the year of my birth ! LOL Hope it's in good shape !I posted a " want to buy " post in the " for sale /want to buy forums " , as I am interested in perhaps buying a 59 Camino , and additionally posting it here in Region 6 , Florida . Maximum price would be $ 38,000 depending on condition . Seller would need to allow a certified appraiser to check out the mechanical status , underneath chassis and all systems . Lack of rust is of major importance . No projects , monster horsepower or rust problems . Looking for a vehicle that I can turn the key and drive very long distances or take to a car show . I am currently looking at 15 Caminos online from cars.com , Trovit , E-bay etc. If someone turns me on to one that I do not know about yet and I purchase it , I will pay them a $ 500 finders fee . Thanks
I had a 59 Chevy hardtop while going to college . I had done all the prep work for painting on a rust free car . Had a 327 engine installed and I added a 4 speed , rolled and pleated interior , bucket seats and a console . The trunk was big enough that I put my scooter in the trunk . I started to learn how to surf in Jacksonville , Fl. and my hugh 10 ft. board was tied down to the roof . Sold it for a few hundred dollars and went into debt and purchased a 1 year old 70 Cuda .The fins on a 59 are simply gorgeous and the whole thing is a big, beautiful piece of rolling mechanical sculpture. The first car that I ever remember in my family was a white 59 Impala with a red interior and I can't wait to see the pictures of yours.
