      1960 cadillac

      i picked up a 60' cadi.

      been surfin the web for subframe mods, havent found any.

      im goin to cut off the front frame and replace it with a new one, but my question is, any one seen or know of any good articles on installing a 454/700r4 into one of these cars?

      i know im cutting it off and making new, but id like to read up on other peoples "how to's"

      any info thanks in advance
      -james

      I may have to do the same thing on my 77 deville. Or maybe just 1 rotted frame rail on the left side. Is yours rotted too?

      hey sir, thanks for that, but the owner already bought the new running gear.


      -also the frame is not rusted or damaged in any way, but need to make room for the new drive train.

      but this will have to wait for a bit until im back from iraq

      You brought back a year and a half-old-thread to tell someone their opinion sucked?
