Amelio,

The fenders and doors of the 71 Chevelle and the 71 El Camino are different. Reason being is the body lines of the 70, 71 n 72 Camino were unchanged after 69. They only changed the front grill and headlight design. You can however swap a 70 El Camino nose onto a 68 or 69 Chevelle or a 68 to 69 Chevelle nose to a 70 - 72 El Camino.

Although from the front the 71 Chevelle and 71 Camino look the same from the side you will see the difference, same applies for 70 n 72. The hood however will fit.
