Chopper's Caddy revised

I saw Ted Lears Caddy and thought "That would make a killer wagon" so here it is. I am planning on putting the stock front end on it and part of the rear bumper. I'm using the roof from my custom Chrysler 300 wagon. More to come as it happens.....

Thanks guys,

Marshall, I'm using Jimmy Flintstones Cadicious body and Chrysler 300 wagon body. I can get you part numbers if you wish.

I also have a rag top version getting started too.

I would like to see if I can locate the Cadicious body. Your build has given me an idea on a new hearse. The convertible sounds like a cool idea as well. I will definitely have to keep an eye open for that build as well! :)

VERY nice flow. The line of the roof is just exactly right on.

Thanks guys, I like how the roof line matches with the lower body line and the rear side window matches the upper body line. It just flows together.

As of right now, the front end has been cut to take the stock 59 Caddy front end (Bumper/grille/lights). The rear valance has been cut out for the same stock treatment back in. It has been recessed into the body and the rear bumper may get sectioned to make it thinner or I may rip the bumper off to add a valence back into it. Photos coming soon.....



Thank you kind sir! I will definitely look for those!

You're welcome, can't wait to see what you do on yours!!!
