1970 Cadillac Eldorado Buildup Project
Here it is knuckleheads!, 1970 Cadillac Eldorado was the 1st year if the
500 cubic inch motor, the largest engine ever fitted in a stock production
car!. This motor has 400hp & 550ft lbs torque out of the factory bone
stock, I just added a little bit of "Spinach". As I tell people, "the only
thing stock is the block".. No chebbie motor here, the heart of this Eldo
is all Cadillac!.. I don't believe in blowers & fancy bolt-ons.. Natural
aspiration/carburetion is the only way for me, although the car is
modified, I'm still a bit of a purist.. Also kept the car front wheel drive
as it was intended to be, a RWD Eldorado is not an Eldorado at all.. The
car motor had 170k on it when it got it, was puffing carbon & oil & in need
of a rebuild. Was only going to do a rebuild then I wanted to see what I
can bolt on to add more power. The engine went through 2 builds, the 1st
build yielded 502HP @ 592ft lbs. torque. Learned a hard lesson about motor
oil after I used synthetic in the motor for years.. Can't do that with an
old 70's engine!!, the motor needs zinc in the oil!.. So as a result the
cam rounded out & the motor essential failed.
The 2nd build resulted in better performance parts & setting up the car
itself to sufficiently support the motor, ie: bigger fuel lines, true 12v
HEI, etc; so there are two stages to this Eldorado's build essentially.
Between the 1st & 2nd build the improvements to the car & motor, &
transmission were done by McBetts Racing Engine, FB Racing Transmissions &
BPR Big Power Racing are as follows:
- Original 500 Engine re-bored .060 over, now is 514 cubic inch.
- Edelbrock High Rise Aluminum Performance Intake.
- Babe Erson Camshaft (forgot specs but it's a grind above street)
- Original Heads Fully Ported & Polished to Maximum Specs.
- Stage II Rockers w/ Forged Roller Valve train
- Quick Fuel 850 CFM Carburetor with Mechanical Secondary's
- Forged 10.1 Venolia Pistons with Forged Old's 455 Rods
- Clevite Bearings & Molly Rings
- Hilborne Air Scoop with K&N Filter
- MSD HEI Ignition
- HVH 1" Atomization Carb Spacer (Adds up to 47hp!)
- Engraved MTS Stainless "Cadillac" Valve Covers
- Moroso Valve Cover Breathers
- 3" Custom 70' Cadillac Eldorado Headers
- Stainless Exhaust System with
Electronic Cutouts off Headers & switchable to Dual Exhaust Flowmasters as standard.
- Upgraded Fuel lines from stock 1/4" to 1/2" into Fuel Tank
- Bosch Electric Fuel Pump
- High Output Alternator - Diehard Platinum AGM Battery.
- Original TH425 Front Wheel Drive Transmission upgrade with all Steel
Billet parts, Caspro Chain Drive System, Street Spec Welded Forged Torque
Converter, Titanium Drive Shafts, Hard Shift Kit, Kickdown on Carb.
- Currently upgrading with 2" 67' Chevelle Aluminum 2 Core Radiator w/ Dual
Electric Fans - Doing away with Flex Fan..
- Trainhorns & JL Sound System - Rockford Fosgate 12"'s Punch
Special thanks to the models of Lisa Marie DeStefano (PretentiousMe)
I would like to have the motor Dyno'ed for the 2nd build, the
specs with the upgrades from the 1st build are estimated at:
592 horsepower &
640 Ft.Lbs.Torque - 10.1 Compression

The Detail Boss: 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Detail RARE 2 step at 90% Perfection!
This gem of a classic is the mother of them all! With only 975 1959
Cadillac Eldorado Seville Coupes being produced, for this car to be black
makes it even MORE rare. We had the splendid opportunity to work on this
fine piece of American history. We performed a 2 step paint correction to
it, also known as our Deluxe Stage II Exterior Detail. We cleaned the
paint, decontaminated it using clay to purify the pores of the clearcoat,
and compounded followed by polish to achieve 90% perfection on black paint
on a car that shows every flaw! We then applied a paint sealant to protect
from the harsh sun Scottsdale Arizona is notorious for during its hot
months! For more info about who we are and what we do, and what YOU can do
to make your cars look like this one, go to the link below!

Ford's response to Cadillac's ELR ad
During the Winter Olympics, Cadillac aired an ad for their new ELR
(Cadilac's version of the Chevy Volt hybrid) that some saw as a little
pretentious. Ford countered with a version of that ad for their electric
Focus that appeals to the rest of us. Well done, Ford.

134296 / 1970 Cadillac DeVille
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/qghjtdo
Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with
mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille
puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed
of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with
comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for!
Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off
restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of
factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and
official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally
glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what
appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of
botched repairs or historic damage.
Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor
coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this
convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the
largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth
And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this
mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit
merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's
satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting
from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary
items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome,
single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator
overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And
thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may
not even notice it's running.
Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional
GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the
car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride
Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually
no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies
which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests.
If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this
DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear
seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of
those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a
contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD
player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and
chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac
steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple
chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk
seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a
small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South
County Customs jack.
This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks
attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on
the planet! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today.
