    I have been looking at pictures of Rancheros and El Caminos. And being inspired by the artwork of Gary C and his 57 El Camino custom I started to wonder if more people have built custom pickups from wagons.

    Does anyone have any pics or ideas on what would look cool?

    The centre picture is of an Australian factory made Ford Mainline ute. Not a conversion from a wagon

  20. I like the wheels on that '58. They fit into the whole concept very well.. Not normally a fan of 20's, but these work.

    I'm searching the Hamb and google now looking for pictures of station wagons that I think would make cool/strange sedan pickups.

    Yeah, looks like a well executed job but I have to agree. The colour of the interior worries me a little too.

    Saw this one in Texas. Owner told that his buddy build it at mid 60's from -61 New Yorker wagon. There is also used a another rear door to make a cabin back wall, with opening window. It's made from 8 person wagon and there is still the seat under the bed floor.
    He didn't want to sell it :(

    I'm a big fan of a pick up's, and it's truly a sorry thing that Chrysler corp never did a ute like Phord and Chivvy

    that fuckers cool!
     
  28. '55-'57 ranchwagon is the perfect candidate for a ranchero. Although you could by a '57 Ranchero.

    The '58 that Choprods did was the tits. I even saw it close up and it was smooth as silk.
