Ok, so first things first. I believe the El Camino and its older cousin the Ranchero are cars with beds. Cut the roof off of a 2 door station wagon and you still have a car. Put a long roof on a pickup and you have a SUV. Car chassis, car engines, car front clips, car accoutrements, makes a car... with a bed. Anyway if the mods feel its a truck and want to switch it to light trucks I respect that.
I just wanted to do a quick build, throw something together and get on with the next one. AMT's 65 El Camino fit that bill. Pretty good mold, not a lot of clean up. Low parts count, should be a quick build... Then it happened (as it always does). Shave the emblems? Check. Might as well do the door handles..Check. Could go a little lower...and so on and son on.
Here's where I'm at so far.
So its another 60's kustom. They need to be low so lets raise the bed.
Cut it out
Clean it up and try to keep it stock looking.
Pegasus Chrome reverse. Any better 60's custom wheel? Not many.
