Video: Chopped And Dropped ’59 El Camino Paris Style

Cruising–we’ve all done it, whether it was in a classic car, hot rod, or you parents’ Buick. For some, cruising is a way to wind down after work or on the weekends. For others, it’s a way of life.

el_camino_paris_style_3While it’s pretty normal to see hot rods and classic cars cruising around on roadways here in the States on a nice day, the number of classic cars cruising the streets of Paris are limited. But, that hasn’t kept the owner of this chopped, dropped, bagged, and fully restored ’59 El Camino from living the cruising life all the same. Check out this amazing car in the Cyrille Doe & Pierre-Arthur BenguiguiGUIGUI video above.

The classic ’59 El Camino is owned by a gentleman that goes by “Felipe Paris Style” on YouTube and various automotive websites. Heck, even the rear window plaque in the car and the inscription on the gauges follow this form. But what’s really important is the true caliber of this awesome ride.

el_camino_paris_styleChopped, dropped, and bagged, the El Camino is the result of a three-year restoration. All the body work and paint was taken care of by the Mackowiak brothers aka Mr32, while the mechanics of the car were dialed in by Michael Vautier. For all the electrical work, Felipe turned to Bruno Gaudron while the upholstery was taken care of by JJ Durvy.

While the car’s specs are being kept under wraps, we can only imagine what intricate details the El Camino’s engine bay and undercarriage possess.

Hopefully we have some readers over in Paris that can give us more details on this car. But for now, just enjoy the ride!
