    Does it interchange with any other Chevy models? 1st gen Camaro for example?

    Even back then Chevy had common parts bins across the models, I'd be really surprised to find another model didn't interchange. If you can find out what it would make sourcing the part easier. Maybe Impala?

    Following on from Dans suggestion, how about someone offering a 3D printing service?

    Also, check out El Camino Central Forum : Chevrolet El Camino Forums

    Maybe someone on there can ship without the markup of the suppliers.

    You could always pick up a Hollander Interchange manual to find alternative cars.
    Or maybe try Hollanders web site?
