    The original chassis is still under it.....
    Rear window is a cut down 65 f-100 P.U.
    Grill I am not sure... Have to cut caddy bumper down and mount to the car and see what I have that I can fit in.... I have a 59 olds grill and a 61 olds grill.....????

  6. The chop really helps the lines of the car, not just the more cut in back, but the leaned pillars. Good job on the changes.

    Cool... Used to be quite a few Caddy grafts onto the rears of Buicks and Oldses.
    Three in San Jose alone, around '55-'59. It was popular, and looked good...
    when my neighbor playmate saw a new Caddy (we were 5 or 6) he called the taillights 'duck ends'.
    I didn't carry that one into my 'teens...
