Buy an EF/EL, sell the boxcar, OR
Keep the boxcar as is.
Anythings possible with enough $$, but honestly I dont know why you'd bother.

like i was tempted to do this but came across a few things the rad support is different... the time it would take gettin a spot weld drill and removing the spot welds and then lining up the ef/el rad support and respot welding then putting panels and guard liners and changing the flasher plugs and then painting it... i will do this when hevan forbid i hit a tree or kanagroo etc etc and then i will do this

I really like it, I love it when people think outside the square and try something a little different. It's just wether you have the time and chash to do it.
