There was a guy that built a 1:1 by cutting an olds tornado behind the front seats and building the rest of it.  He was in Corvallis, Oregon.  Don't know if he ever finished it.  Helped him for a couple of days, that was over 40 years ago.

 

We now have a'78 GMC coach that uses the same drivetrain .  Factory version though.

Nice kit bash.

that's an interesting choice for a camper front end...
 

Back in my youth, I saw a few campers that were built on old Cadillacs. The frames seemed to be tough enough to take it. Very unusual vehicles, to say the least! LOL

Excellent work! I have one of those campers and a Chevy Fleetside to go with it in the 'some time next year' pile...but your RV interior is magic.

Also love the guilty-looking pup! Big Smile

Thnaks for the comments!

The hardest part of this one was figuring out where to cut the Cadillac. I didn't want to get it too short, and have a big gap between it and the camper.

On this one, I used a Ghostbuster's Cadillac, and the Open Road camper from the Model King re-issue:

I had a blast building this rig! Once I got started, it just got to be more fun working on it!

Hope you like it!
