Elca-tona

Recommended Posts

Well, my Ma Mopar ‘what if’ build is done. Combined a 68 chevy elcamino with a 70 Plymouth superbird . The nose was a very close fit, only minor working of the fender ‘peaks’ was needed to get it to blend. I grafted the Plymouth interior door panels, dash, seats and console into the elcamino interior tub, also grafted the superbird tail lamp panel into the tailgate area, modified the elcamino bumper , obviously added the wing, and tossed a hemi into it mated to a turbo 400 trans , used the elcamino frame and rear diff, steel wheels/caps and redlines from the 68 charger kit. It’s painted in testors flaming orange. Thanks for looking.

That is one wild build Tom. Superb craftmanship! 

Oh, and one down with only nine to go. 😉

Nice, that is one crazy car/truck.  I bet in real life you would have a difficult time keeping the "light" rear end going straight with all that power up front.  Very cool design and pretty unique

Beautiful looking build. I enjoyed watching all that went into this. I like the Aero Wing, but without it this would look like a Plymouth prototype from that era. The tailgate area flows together perfectly.

Thanks all, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, have half a mind to do a superbird and an elcamino in the same colors and display them all in a row, lol.
