  5. Man I got Caddys out the ass...lol. I will get some pics soon, but my next project is going to be cuttin down a 37 Caddy four door sedan into a truck cab I am using on an 80's Chevy 1ton frame with a wedge car hauler bed. I also have a 39 Lasalle coupe that is very clean on the back burner for a project that is very clean. 49 and 56 4 doors, and my driver 69 calais coupe.
     
  6. hi im 16, brand new to HAMB ive got a 53 fleetwood ive already shaved handles and trunk lid. the old hydro went out this summer, so im working on dumping a 472 caddy in so i can have something to cruize next summer.

  7. Hey hotroddub, glad you are saving one of these "tubs". Cadillacs from the 50's were of the highest build quality and deserve to be saved...even if a "moredoor". Maybe you can go with a lowered and black Gangster theme. Please don't paint the wheels red!
    Also, if you are thinking about a different engine, please keep in mind this can be a difficult swap. Frame needs major surgery to clear oil pump/filter and fuel pumps. Exhaust is also a pain to clear the steering box. BB Caddy headers are Almost $500, and need to be cut to fit 50's and 60's chassis.
    May want to look into a modern trans swap. Save your money and get a trans adapter from Bendsons. the original motor will be allot cooler, IMHO.

    Gotta 60 2dr hrdtp that I am working on. Plans are bagging it, maybe a scallop paint job, custom grill and new interior. Right now just getting little things done to make it reliable enough to take it anywhere I want to.

    53' Fleetwood.
    After screwing around with it twice, The stock hydro is working just fine as can be asked for.
    This Spring will bring, a corvette Dual M/C, stainlesss braided front flex lines & axle connect line, carb rebuild, lifters replaced (Ones sticky), heater line repairs, new custom interior, new mufflers to give it some sound finally, rewire turn signal/parking lights, lower it W/ Cut coils and blocks, floor repair & custom made exhaust tips to bring the pipes back out of the bumper. and if i can find a better, non bent/clearcoated/ruster rear bumper, that too.
     
  11. That sounds interesting. Any Pics?
     
  12. OK, I've seen all of the pictures. You win !!!!!

    The 390/700r4 is getting installed as soon as I paint the engine bay. After that the body work starts and she's getting painted black with a silver top.
     
  15. Please excuse me, if all of you have seen this build, but well worth a look for those of you whom have not. Don did a killer job of installing a late model engine in a '57 chassis. Car is very cool. Lots of build pics. Attention to detail is amazing.:cool::cool:

    Ditto on that, we have been waiting for a couple of years now to see Don's '57 Caddy. It will be amazing.

    still plugging away at my 53 coupe. i have gathered up stuff to rebuild the front suspension, convert to disk brakes, and hang a turbo behind the 365 i picked up for it.

    anybody used one of those isky cams they are selling on ebay? was wondering if it helped and whether it created any problems.

    Heres my '52 on the back burner for a bit. Just happy to finally have a caddy. I've got my eye on a '48 four door. Might have more rust than I want to deal with, although it is 100% complete.

    nice '52, I just picked one up myself a couple weeks ago, 100% complete, no rust (just surface), hopefully getting it back on the road by late spring after a minor resto.

    thanks. im not 100% sure what I'm going to do with the paint yet, I definitely won't keep it green, but right now I'm just looking to make it mechanically sound.
     
  25. Hey, if it's got too much rust, then just fix it, drive it, and enjoy it.

    No one says that they all have to be pretty....

    1937 60 series paddy wagon/utility/rescue unit???? Never seen anything like it. It's not a standard flower car or fire engine setup. Picked it up about 10 years ago...what a sick piece: step bed with diamond plate floor and tool box/seats over the rear wheel houses, tinned between front seat and back, 32 chevy hood louvers over rear windows, rear access door from bed. 74 Impala rear in it now and Ihave an 80 Caddy 368/th400 waiting for it. Too many projects on the front burners !!!

    3 years since my Tommy Boy incident, and my '55 has a hood again! It's a '54 hood, but I'll make it work
