70 El Camino

Post by dv8v8 on Mon 07 Sep 2015, 5:50 pm

it seemed like a good idea at the time ! I wanted to build a 70 El Camino, but there isn't a kit so I ordered a resin one and got AMT's 70 Chevelle as a donor kit, but the resin turned out to be a 71 and I still needed some bits, so I gathered all the parts required and found I also had most of a Revel 68 El Camino I looked at pics and found they both use the same body , how hard could this be ? then things got messy ! so far the engine is complete, and the two bodys have been cut and shut, but still need a bit of tweeking.
