1959 Chevrolet El Camino 4x4 Plow


Recommended Posts

This was one of those "plugged away at it for a time, then it sat untouched for months, then the last 5% or so was finished in an afternoon" kind of projects. The cab is an AMT '59 El Camino body cut off just behind the doors. The bed is a 1950 Chevrolet 3100 piece with the fenders from an AMT '40 Willys pickup. The chassis is from a Moebius 1970 F100 with wheels and tires from a Revell Baja Bronco, and the Revell GMC snow plow hangs off the front. Engine is a Buick Nailhead and just because all of this wasn't quite absurd enough, it has twin turbochargers courtesy of Iceman Collections. The rear pintle hitch came from Scenes Unlimited. Smatterings of parts box refugees and a few scratch built parts fill in the blanks.

Now that is something you just don't see every day.  What a kewl looking EL Camino plow.  Great work on the weathering.  Fantastic build man.  I like it.

That is the ugliest pile of stuff I have seen lately.  But then it has to be ugly to work the way it does.  Excellent craftsmanship and ingenuity. Very well executed build. I especially like the "Honk" sticker on the tailgate.

Truely creative looking. So many different design elements and somehow, they just seem to belong together. A lot of fine details to look at and it takes a little while to notice everything that has been done. Very realistic looking finishes.

This is a super cool mashup Chuck. Your weathering is always extremely well done. Love the imagination and ingenuity you put in this build, great stuff.

Cheers, Steve

That is super cool and realistic , very well done !   I can imagine something like this actually being built to be used as a farm truck .
