I was in a catch 22 on my El Camino. I got a good deal to begin with as I only bought it as a parts car and used the parts I bought it for on another project.

Then I decided it would make a good home for a 500 Cadillac I had laying around......and somewhere along the line decided to add the Monte Carlo front end. I figured as I was experimenting and had most of the parts on hand if I didn’t like outcome once the mockup was done I really wouldn’t be out anything. I ended up really liking what it turned into when the mockup was done, but at that point really wished I had started out with a better body to begin with as it would have saved a lot of time and money in body work to get it in shape.
