Cadillac is a cool cruiser, and there’s a lot going on beneath the metal. So this very honest engine bay is filled with the monstrous 500 cubic-inch V8 motor that’s happy to fire right up and idle for hours. Emissions regulations of that era had taken out some of the horsepower, but this Caddy has no trouble moving because it still makes about as much torque as a modern V8 Chevy truck! The cruising attitude is heightened by a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front. The suspension in this car must be experienced. You would think Cadillacs from this era are referred to as boats because of their size, but after you drive it, you’ll swear it’s because how it floats down the road.
