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.

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...
