I have been offered a 1956 Cadillac engine for $600. I am told it will run and has 50,000 miles on it. I figure it could make a nice hot rod engine but I have no knowledge of these engines. Is it worth the money and are they a useable hot rod engine. It has no tranny so what tranny will work behind it??? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I have not seen it in the flesh yet, so your comments will help me decide if it is worth seeing. Many thanks, Russ.
