With a vehicle like an El Camino, just be aware of what rearward engine movement will do for leg and foot room and operating the pedals, especially if you are fairly tall. My '31 roadster has a fairly large engine setback and I, at 1.9m, have a tight fit with my feet plus keep knocking the Lokar shifter into 'N' with my knee. My seats, and maintaining a reasonably comfortable incline for driving will not go any further back to help either.
