I'm not a purist, and I'd love to see one of these that looks good, but this one doesn't work for me. That rear window/back of cab is particularly awful looking. This is also the only El Camino-ized car that still has four doors, definitely an unusual design choice since they just open up into the bed. Guy also has a 61 Chrysler Windsor/Newport, and he does hemi conversions.

From what I can tell the cars in this guy's yard are all in the same state (of misery).
I wonder if he found them this way, or did they end up this way there?

He says the Plymouth was altered when it was "young," presumably in the 60's, which makes me wonder if it was a flower car or just some person's failed attempt at a Mopar El Camino. I doubt it's a flower car though, those were generally of higher quality and were usually with luxury brands like Imperial or Chrysler. Can't speak for the guy's other cars.

This looks like it used to be a station wagon.

It would look a lot better if they had used a 2dr wagon instead. The tiny 4dr doors make the cab ridiculously small.

That one looks much better because they included the sloping rear glass to extend the cab a bit. I still think it would look better with a larger door from a 2 door car though.
