Filling the engine bay is the monstrous 472 cubic-inch V8. The highly original presentation makes us suspect this is the original power plant to the car. With a four-barrel carburetor on top, this offers huge horsepower and torque. But while the figures are at muscle car levels, this one never loses its luxury composure. Instead, it utilizes its whooping torque to easily and confidently get you off the line. Plus, the big V8 makes sure you’ve always got power in reserve, even at highway speeds. Add in power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and Cadillac’s legendary ride
