This was built using the Mysterion front half of the chassis and both engines, along with the tail light center panel, Beatnik Bandit nose, and Lil' Coffin headers.

Thought I did. I had to pinch the rear frame rails to mate up to the axle I put under it. It has a quick change under it.

Very impressive work. This looks like something designed by one of the great customizers of the past. I think Ed Roth and Tom Daniels would dig this.

Pretty cool. I always love it when those projects pop up on the hamb. I remember following that Elkie over there while it was an active build. I've got two similar projects on the mental drawing board. Good stuff!

I too have been following it on the HAMB, I haven't looked in a couple months but I liked the look from the get go.

Mind + this elcamino = Blown


Now I must buy a 1959 elcamino along with a Mysterion to try and build one of these.Not trying to copy you, just trying to be as cool as you.

LOL, thanks for the kind words Austin. Build away my friend, I don't ever mind anyone copying me, I get ideas from others and they get ideas from me. That's what this hobby is about. I consider it the greatest compliment when someone wants to build something like what I've done!!!!!
