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.

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...

Redline Review: 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
With the smaller ATS now in the lineup, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is finally free to move up-market in size, power, and prestige. The all-new third-generation CTS showcases a lot of firsts for the Cadillac brand. The first twin-turbo engine, 8-speed transmission, and a plethora of luxury and technology makes this one of the best mid-size luxury sedans money can buy. If you want the best handling vehicle in the segment, look no further, your sport sedan has arrived.





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.
