Does anyone besides me look and think "El Camino" conversion?
I gotta agree that it would be much easier to fix it with another roof... I just can't help myself but think "if you ever wanted to... there's the car". It's kind of like my fuselage Imperial convertible dreams.That option was suggested several times last year.
A "proper" El Camino conversion would require changing over to coupe doors. That would be a huge amount of work to pull off. I do have all the parts that I would need: 1972 coupe doors and a 1970 formal coupe roof, which would provide the correct coupe A pillars and concave rear window like many El Camino's used.
I think it would be easier to just find a donor wagon and swap roofs.
But wasn't the El Camino and Ranchero intermediates in the late 60s/early 70s?
