1959 Chevrolet El Camino
Merle N. of Mountain Home, AR
Merle says: "It had the front burned off from an engine fire when I bought it. It took about 5 years to get it back to where it is today.
I have been driving it for the past 3 years since I finished it. It gets a lot of looks and has won many trophies here in the Heartland.
I use some of your products to keep it looking good. I especially like your '59 Sedan Delivery. I did see it at a Goodguys show at the
Los Angeles fairgrounds in '96. Love it!"
