Description for Cadillac Fleetwood 1949

This is a 1949 Cadillac Fleetwood Sedan California License Number 5ZAX680, current titled as non-operational, with current California Clean Title. VIN 496016970. The work was stopped during the build just before it was close to going on the road due to health reasons. There are numerous manuals that go with the Cadillac as well as numerous invoices for items on engine parts and rebuilding.

This was an older restoration and started by the late owner to be converted to a late model Cadillac Engine with Turbo 400 Transmission and 3rd member. There are many parts in boxes that I have not looked thru that go to this project. They also did the following:

· 500 ci Cadillac engine was rebuild, by Adams Metalizing & Grinding, engine rebuilder in Lancaster, CA, 661-942-9538, invoices 119411, 119197, $2370.31. Have not ran engine. Major engine parts from CAD Company, Invoice 28632 $1567.57

o Keith Black Hyperutietic Pistons 10:1, 76 cc heads, .040

o Premium Molly rings for 68-76 500ci, standard width, .040

o Camshaft, OE spec replacement cam, Cadillac performance lifters.

o Timing set, Cloyes street roller set

o Oil pump, SC Gold

· Was told transmission is rebuilt Turbo 400 for 500ci Cadillac. Have not run transmission.

· 3rd member was replaced, see photos. Do not know the gear ratio. Disc brake rear end. Need to hook up and finalize brake lines.

· Independent A Arm Front suspension with a Fatman front frame clip for 49 Cadillac with custom coil over shocks for big block with sway bar. Power steering rack. See photos.

· See no sign of rust beyond minor surface on bottom, chassis, engine, trunk and interior. Some minor rust inner rockers, signs its been treated, buyer to inspect.

· Bumpers front and rear good condition, would be ok for a driver, minor pits.

· Issues:

o When the front clip was removed for the fatman clip it was not fitted correctly and will need to be removed and refitted to chassis. I was told last owner had heath issues and stopped work and put it back on to sell vehicle.

o The riding height has not been established front and rear and needs to adjust coil over in front and arc rear springs to bring it down to level ride.
