I usually advocate that you go buy the cars featured here. That is not the case with this one. Not because it’s not a great car, but because they are asking $45,000. This is a 1966 Nova station wagon (with a ’67 grille) converted to an El Camino…beautifully converted.
This car is really well done. The details are great, the workmanship is really nice, and the execution is fantastic. ($45,000 fantastic, no.) The builder even went the extra step and tilted the “B” pillar forward like a proper El Camino. So often, with home conversions, the “B” pillar gets left alone and the whole thing just ends up looking wonky. For example:
The “B” pillar is really the crux of a good conversion. For example:
Another nice touch on this Nova-mino is the rear window. It is inset by just an inch or two from the sheet metal. The builder took this styling cue from actual El Caminos of the day. It looks great, along with the trim and the way the bed is finished.
Oh, and by the way, it was featured in Super Chevy did a feature article on this car, which you can find here….for $45,000! Kidding, the article is free.
