1959 El Camino ‘Hulk-Camino’ – Chris Walker


  • 1959 El Camino 'Hulk-Camino' home-built by Chris Walker was a huge fan favorite at the 2019 SEMA show.
  • Frame/Chassis: ITW Hot Rods built the one-off frame
  • TCI independent front suspension, Competition Engineering chromoly four-link rear, and adjustable Viking coilcover dampers at all four corners.
  • Wilwood 4-piston calipers with 12-inch rotors live at all four corners and are fed pressure via a Wilwood master cylinder
  • Engine: A 402 cubic-inch small-block Chevy is filled with a Callies crankshaft, Scat I-beam rods, and custom Diamond forged pistons. The Dart SHP block is topped with Dart Pro 1 aluminum heads, a Weiand aluminum intake, two Holley 780cfm carburetors, and a 6-71 BDS blower. The combination puts out 800 hp with a 8.5:1 compression ratio.
  • Drivetrain: With 661 ft-lbs of torque on tap, Walker chose a Monster-built 700R4 four-speed automatic with a 10-inch anti-ballooning converter. A Strange Dana 60-based rearend with 3.50:1 gears feeds twist to massive rear tires.
  • Wheels & Tires: American Racing rims (18x8 front, 20x15 rear) and wrapped with Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs, 26x8R18 (front) and 31x18x20 (rear)
