    The 55 & 56 looked like the same box too, sans chrome trim, IDK, so maybe they were all the same?

    Likely the same tooling was used to make those boxes. I guess the chrome was to drum up more business for 57 model year.

    They didn't sell as many as they wanted in 55/56.

    Public wasn't quite ready for the pickup/car combination yet, I guess, so then they did the El Camino next....they should have went straight to the El Camino in 55, that would have been much cooler. ;):cool::p:D:)

    Probably partially my fault, I am the one that talked about Chevy should have built the El Camino starting in 55. It is a very nice looking 55 so it isn't a problem for me. :)

    No problem 59Apachegail. These conversions are always interesting. This picture with my old 58 Chevy includes my current 56 EL conversion and a current and former 37 Chevy.

    I'm not sure I can say that I have a favorite among them, the following all appeal to me a lot.

    Started to buy this one, but looked like it would need too much work.

    I sure like what I saw in your jalopy journal thread. Don't pay any attention to the nay sayers I have heard it all on my roadster build. I would have quit if I cared about their opinions. keep us up to date on your build
