You may want to try the Babel program suite, developed by the
Dolata Research Group, University of Arizona.

Babel will read the following file types :
Alchemy                  AMBER PREP               Ball and Stick           
Biosym .CAR              Boogie                   Cacao Cartesian

Hope this helps.
