IIRC the Monte SS nose is a little wide for an El Camino and needs to be cut down to size.

I'm in the process of finding out which ones fit which.

I mean, they all fit each other, but some are more intense projects. For instance, I was scrutinizing Cutlass and Elky/Malibu. The whole front clip bolts on, but the back edge of the cutlass fenders doesn't match the leading edge of the Malibu/Elky door. So, the easy fix is to get Cutlass doors, but the body contour at the rear of the Cutlass door doesn't match the Elky quarter. Lots of work involved.

That's good to know. For that matter, its not out of the realm of possibility to just graft in darn near any lights I want, just nice to know that there are some possibilities.

Man I want a G-Body so badly, and this isn't helping. I'd go for the Grand Prix 2+2 aero coupe nose.

That Cutlass El Camino bothers me because the rear wheel arches don't match.

As far as noses go, I'm partial to the Cutlass and Grand National.

That is when you throw on the bolt on GN flares
