Man this is such a cool conversion! Off the top of my head, I don't think I have seen anyone try this in scale form.

Any ideas on what wagon back your going to use? Or will you scratch build your own?

Thanks, I thought this would be a cool one to do too..

And as for the wagon back I will have to scratch build my own.. the one that they used in the photo above is off a 66 olds vista cruiser, so if any one out there has one thats if they even make them lmk... :)

Can't say that I've seen anyone do up a '63 Caddy, so this should be interesting.

I'm locked in as well! This is gonna be a very cool project to follow. Cadillac station wagons are rare, but one in scale is even rarer! B)
