    I'm new to the HAMB. Been lurking a little and found this thread and thought the rides were sick. Thought I might join the party. Here's a couple of shots of mine. It's a 1951 more door with a mod or two. Glad to see so many Cadillacs on the road.

    Here's a few pics of my (fairly late model for the HAMB) 1970 Fleetwood 75 Formal Sedan...

    This is a former Nevada car, from what we can tell it spent it's entire life in the desert until I bought it mid way through last year, and had it delivered to my brothers place in San Jose in early July. We drove it around for a month while we were there in August, and it's currently back at my brothers place until we return in August this year... :)

    heres my 53, bout to drop a sbc in it with a th350 behind it. anybody got info on the swap? will it fit right in? if i get front motor mounts off like a 56 chevy 265 will it line up to the motor mounts on the frame or will i need to fab some? or should i keep the frame mounts that are bolted to the doner cutlass and use those? any info is appreciated thanks.

    PC,

    The LaSalle is looking very cool and will be a great cruiser. What color are you thinking of painting the ride? :D

    thanks guys.
     
  22. I've never put a Chevy in a Cadillac, but the '53-older Caddy has mounts similar to a '53-older Buick. If you are swapping the frame / subframe with the Cutlass, though, you would use the mounts for a SBC in the Cutlass, and it would bolt in like stock.

    That dash is sweet. Good taste :cool:

    Okay Fellas, Now I know my Caddy is not the flavor of this site nor is it on the level of any of the other cadillacs on this site however, I am very influenced by this version of automotive culture. I just purchased this as a project with hopes of turning it show worthy!
