1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!

I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem. Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.

Resurrecting the 1960 Cadillac
My brother bought a 1960 Cadillac. This is the first time it has ran in 16 years. I know I keep saying 8 in the video but it was actually 16. The old guy he bought it from drove the car up from NM in 94 and started tearing it apart to restore it but never finished and it sat in his barn since then.

1958 Cadillac Runs & Drives After 15 Years & Commentary
I'm proud to say I have resurrected this car. It sat in a car port for 15 years but now she "runs like a sewing machine." New Exhaust pipes, carb from another car (63 Pontiac), rebuilt wheel cylinders for the brakes, new brake hoses, front end stabilizer pins and a few other things. Now she rides like a, well... Like a Cadillac!.. Next will be cleaning the fuel tank and fixing the fuel gauge...

American Big Block Luxury Sedans, 1963-1970
These were the best sedans money could buy back when you could get serious luxury from the Big Three. Lincoln Continentals were equipped with the 430 Super Marauder V8 {a MEL engine also used in Mercurys, hence the Marauder name} in the early 60s, which eventually yielded to the 462 MEL V8 {the biggest engine in the family, basically an enlarged 430.} Finally, the 385-series 460 V8 was used starting in 1968, and this motor was used in Continentals until 1978. Chrysler Imperials used a high-performance 413 RB V8 until 1965, when the big 440 TNT motors were used. The 440 was used well into the 70s. Cadillac Fleetwoods were at first equipped with 390 V8s, which were upsized to 429s in 1964. Following the 429, a massive 472 V8 was introduced which provided more torque than any muscle car engine of the day and had massive 4 inch bore and stroke diameters. Finally, the largest production engine offered at the time, a massive 8.2 liter {500ci} V8 was used from 1970 on. This engine produced a healthy 400 horsepower and 550 lb. ft. of torque, all available at RPMs no higher than 3000. These engines signaled that the excess of the 70s was coming, and of course style began to suffer. Clean uncluttered cars were replaced with acres of chrome and ugly front end treatments. These were the last of a line of cars that started in the 50s, big flashy cars with clean styling and enourmous engines.

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 375 horsepower. 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!
