Ron Lukken’s 1960 El Camino Custom
This mild looking but extensively modified ’60 Chevrolet El Camino has a lot of neat styling touches. Dubbed “The Naked Lady”, it has pin-up style ladies painted inside the quarter-panel scoops. The mint-green paint job is very well done and looks great with the cream colored leather interior that has Chevy bow-ties embroidered into the seat backs. The console is well constructed and houses the gear shifter, power window and other switches. The dash is stock, but has been cleaned up and de-chromed, and has had digital gauges and billet knobs installed. The bed of this car (or is it a truck?) is lined with brushed aluminum panels with hardwood strips on the floor. The grill is custom made utilizing some machined billet parts along with some tubing and bar stock. The original 1960 style quad headlights have been replaced by 1959 Chevy units that really seem to fit well and look good. The body color painted stock 3-piece bumpers have been welded together and made seamless, with the ends of the front being cut off and replaced by the ends from a rear bumper for a cleaner less bulky look. Ron’s El Camino is powered by a 502 Chevy big block V8 with a B&M 700 R-4 automatic transmission. The details don’t end here, so take a good look at the pics!
