    I dont have a photo but my pops tells the story about when he was 18-19 years old growing up in Wellington Ks. He had an older friend/mentor that had a Kustom 59. His friend let him take the car to the Darrel Starbird show in Wichita and to a show in Kansas City(pops even registered the car in his name). I would have a hard time handing one of my cars to a 19 year old kid. I think the 59 is in the Starbird museum.

    Sure looks like it. Maybe somebody who has a set can confirm that they are.

    The reason I ask is because the El Camino that I picked up a few years ago is wearing some vintage wheels. The car was supposedly IMG_0878.JPG IMG_3152.JPG parked in 1974 and I would like to clean these things up, maybe get them re-chromed. Check out the skinny white wall snow tires.

    Great thread. The thing about 59-60 ElCaminos is they don't need much restyling. They are already pretty wild in their own right.

    I really like this 59. You must be really happy to go in your garage and find it there. This is along the lines of what I was hoping to see more of. I think most people just go with the muscle car look, and el caminos arent peoples first choice for a custom.
