Sits perfect, and the workmanship looks top notch. Very well done.
What usually goes between the bumper and the bottom of the front fender? Is some sort of filler panel going in there?
turn signal lights. they are going back in
That car rules......I would love to have a caddy like that....nice work.....
Definitely on the "ground floor"...looking good.
Have you checked out my "'55 Caddy build" thread...??? It started on April 10th, do a search, there's 4 installments so far...
You using the stock park lights...??? I'm going a bit different on mine...
Me too I think. Still trying to make up my mind. That's my blinker though...
Caddy is sick. I can't wait til' mine is back on the road. Just ordered my overhaul kit so hopefull the motor will be back together and back in the car in 3 weeks.
looks fuckin bad ass on the ground and that year always did it for me- good job!!
he just got the interior done, I will try to get some pic's
Any more pictures of that green roadster?
That thing sits BadAss
isnt that 62 bob grants? whats he done to that thing?
Your Cadillac looks killer! I'd eventually like to do something similar to my Buick. Thanks for the inspiration!
yes it was bob's,it just went to max in so cal.he has already painted the top and primered the bare metal beauty!
looks tight,my brother in law is drooling over it.He as the same year and wants to do the same thing,did you have to modifie the spindle\kingpin????or just a arm mods.
Cool thread, cool Caddy!
the king pins work fine, you just gotta put a 2" drop in the lower arms
Nice looking job, hopefully my friend will see this and get inspired to mess with his.
freakin hell that thing sit's right. geez. nice job, hmm, now to get my more door that low.
I know this post has been dormant a while, but I am considering all the ways to bag my '56 Caddy and was leaning toward building a 2-link setup off of the front leaf spring mounts, similar to what you did.
I'm concerned about the pinion angle changes and other issues with such a short linkage. Now that it's been a while since you put this together, could you please post an update on how well things have worked out and maybe some lessons-learned or things you would have done differently?
we haven't had any issues yet. I wish there was more to say.
Holy crap. Beautiful work man
Awesome work I know this thread is old but what did you use for wheel tubs ? I am in the process of doing the same to my 54 series 75 limo
