1959 Chevy Elcamino

so the shop has been getting by with out a truck for long enough. my pal Leo loves 59s and happen to have more El Caminos than he needed, so i bought this one off him. solid project, original 283 with 4 barrel automatic. plans are to spruce this truck up as i go, but first is the dash and roof, since the glass is out i might as well finish that part.
