That's a beauty. Although I guess I am a little biased, I have a 70 El Camino, same chassis, doors forward is identical and even the tailights are the same. I wonder if that car uses the 112" wheelbase 2 door frame or the 116" wagon/ 4 door/ el camino frame.

I'm pretty sure they said it was a cut-down wagon.

"Another one of our Editor’s Choice Drag winners, Rick McDonough’s Chevelle wagon not only caught our eye because it was as pristine a racecar as we’ve ever seen, but also because it was missing a couple of doors. Actually a ’71, Rick added the ’70 front sheetmetal along with performing door-removal surgery to make this two-door wagon a unique piece"

That's cool, seems to be very well done! IMO he definitely made the right call going to the 70 front clip instead of the 71.

Agreed! Certainly to me, the '71, '72 frontend is better by far than '73 on. There seems
to be a purity of design with the first of a type. '70 nose best choice.

I feel the same way about the '70 Cuda. The next years with grille, and taillight
changes to me were always a poor 2nd choice!

I even feel that way about the tri-5's to an extent.

I have owned 3 '55 Chevs., and 2 '57's.
My personal favorite list is as follows with 1 being 1st choice:

2 HT. or 2 post:
#1 '55
#2 '57
#3 '56

Sedan Delivery:
#1 '56
#2 '55
#3 '57

Nomad/2dr/4dr wagons:
#1 '56
#2 '57
#3 '55

If a custom El Camino look:
#1 '56
#2 '55
#3 '57

As most of us know, GM did alot of 2 year near look alike versions where doors, etc..
can be interchanged.

Thusly the 64/65 Chevelles, 66-67 velles, 68/69 velles, 70-72 as well.

I like the '69 face also. The '68-'72 wagons, and El Camino's all really have the same
main body, and rear.

My question is a custom stretch of a nose, or shortening of frame needed to put
a '69 Chevelle nose on a '70-72 Chevelle wagon/El C ???

Are the Olds, Buick, Pontiac cousins in the same boat???

for me the shelby daytona coupe or the original ford GT,, if you look at one the right way you can see how many 80's Hondas tried to mimic the look.
