I would like to see one of these in person-just because it's different.Pretty nice cruck! I am stuck on the older generations,but, this cruck is nicely done. Do the models come with it ? :dontknow:
Terry, just wondering...did you ever get Carlos straightened out and ready for Belton ? Were you able to recoup any of your losses from the "mechanic" ??
xxEehhh. That is an elky with a el dorado front and taillights put on. If you look at the headlights thwy arent even caddy lights. They are the stock chevy ones.
Definitely 1980 Cadillac Eldorado front clip.
I would be more than willing to be that this is in fact a genuine conversion vehicle.
And caddy and chevy are competitors, why would they ever join a car?????? And you know chevy wouldnt want caddy to have any part of the el camino!
Caddy and Chevrolet----not competitors----different target clientele.
Weather or not you wish to believe this, but Caddys have been being converted to pickups since the early 50s or sooner. Commonly referred to as a flower car, they were generally reserved for funeral homes.
During the late 70s----the "Mirage" was built (outsourced) and sold by Cadillac dealers.
This was based on the big ElDorados of the era.
Ford also played with the same idea since the Ranchero went away in 79
I believe it was about 200 Fairmonts were converted into "Durangos"------and then another coach builder made copies of THAT car. There are differences in the Ford version that are readily known to anyone familiar with a real Durango that the copy Durango does not have.
Pontiac, believe it or not-----managed to get a pair of 61 ElCamino type vehicles out as well. Pretty sure both were prototypes or just an engineering idea that never got off the ground and managed to get out in the public hands.
