Looks more like a 1969 Charger 500. just not as refined in the grille.

If the car was black it would look great. Maybe even other colors. But that red looks like one of the colors in a box of crayons that never got used. Ugly.

Looks like a ‘69 Fairlane in the front.

Anyone else ever try to do something like this with the headlights. If so how?
E36 BMW headlights would be fairly easy to fit in an El Camino nose if you had something like a billet grille to close up some size gaps.

I'm inclined to agree with Ribbedroof...
Round headlights on a squared off grille seem to me to have a "conflict" of sorts. But I think if you had "square-ish" bright trim around the headlights (1967 Chevy pickup w/single square trim comes to mind), it could be the best of both worlds.
Have fun whatever you do, and everybody's opinion is different.

I was going to say it looked like a Charger 500 got rear ended really hard by an El Camino, people forget that you could get a Charger without the hide away headlights. Its an interesting look on that El Camino just not sure if its my thing or not. To each their own

E30 would be a better fit:

The lights could look cool on the ElCo front if they'd be recessed by 2 or 3"
