That’s pretty wild. I don’t think that I have seen a chopped El Camino.

Interesting for sure. The one thing that happens when you chop one of these Elkys is that they now look about 3 miles long in my book.
I do wish the seller the best of luck selling it at that price.

Right! It looks like a rocket sled on rails kind of creation. Maybe we should pitch in and buy it. We could put a jet engine in it and take it to Bonneville.

There is a reason there are no windows in it and it's for sale.  They have no idea what to do next.  

If you have ever seen Ian Roussel do a chop on Full Custom Garage, first and foremost is having a plan to sort out windows.  They are a deal breaker after the fact.  One chop Ian did was a 40's Packard.  He sunk the original curved windshield into the cowl.  The back window was also sunk in the trunk and he had to move the trunk hinges around to make it work.  In the end the car a 4" chop with the original curved glass remaining in the car.  And he was able use the original chrome trim too.  It looked like a factory chop.

This El Camino has holes that have no way to fill with a window, all complicated curved glass; windshield, back window, and frameless curved door glass.  I guess you could cobble up some Lexan but good luck with long term durability and wipers.  

Wear a helmet with a visor which would be the most practical option for this one.

Thanks -

Hey. I have watched his show on many occasions. His skill level is very impressive. While I am making a bracket to hold my radiator, he is making an entire roof. I am not sure where the idea for those gauges came from, but I don’t think he has finished glueing them in yet. All that this project really needs to finish it up is another $25,000 thrown at it. That and a jet engine.
