I saw this work in progress on Facebook last week and genuinely laughed out loud upon viewing.
We’ll start at the rear where you can see the C5 rear end grafted on the back of a fifth generation El Camino. Corvette tails and roll pans have been installed on damn near everything so that’s not totally outside of the box, and I wouldn’t doubt that it might be an off the shelf s10 conversion kit modified to fit the Elco.
From the side the original Elco bed mates up with the ‘Vette bodywork pretty well, and you can see that the body likes carry through nice and consistent. There also looks to be after market side skirts I can’t quite place and some large full face wheels.
If the rear were more par for the course conversion wise the front is the real shocker; a Dodge Charger front end which when combimed with the Corvette rear end is a real head-scratcher that you can’t help but smirk at.
Proportion wise I’ll admit it actually isn’t all that bad, slightly heavy-looking but far from the worst I have seen, and –as with all things– I am curious what it would look like on the ground.
What do you think, any potential here or a complete lost cause?
