Cutting up a Mint 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVille: Finnegan's Garage Ep.120

Motor

In episode 119 I introduced you to my Caddy, which I bought to turn into a drag race and landspeed car. The goal is to run 8s in the 1/4 mile and 200 mph in a standing mile event while still cruising this luxurious behemoth on the street. In today's video, we completely strip the '61 down to a bare shell and then anger Kar Kulture Karens everywhere by cutting out the rust-free floors and trunk to make room for a new mandrel bent chassis. It's gonna be an awesome project car thanks to the dudes at MRC Fabrication in Kendersville, North Carolina. This shop specializes in off-the-deep-end builds and can custom build a chassis for nearly anything. Visit the shop's instagram profile ( MRCFABBULLARD ) for more photos of the build and all the other stuff they have created.

    It's your car, you should be able to do what you want with it. Cut it up and make it awesome. I hate it when people tell me what i should or shouldn't do because they think something different than what i do. Your Ideas are your own and every custom car is unique and awesome. I wouldn't care if it was worth $5 or $5,000,000.

    Why? Just... WHY??? It's one thing to salvage a rust bucket body and turn it into something, but taking a rust-free classic that could be restored to better-than-stock and doing, well, THAT to it? All so you can set a couple of "numbers? I hope some little old lady scolds you.

    So you’re replacing the chassis with a custom fabricated piece, and you’re replacing the engine with something else. You’re not going 200 MPH in Cadillac, you’re going 200 MPH in a Cadillac *body*. This thing will be no more a Caddy than a FC is a Camaro.

    Sorry to here about your dad. I help my dad replace the noise on a 63 Cadillac and when I went to get my driver's license at 16, he threw me his Cadillac keys and said take it for your test. I was more nervous about driving his Cadillac and afraid of damaging my dad's baby than thinking about passing my test. After passing the test with the inspector, all the inspector said at the end of my driver's test was, wow what a nice riding car. BTW love that 56 Nomad next to the lift. I'm building a 55 Monad with a slightly tweaked 283, a turbo 400 and 2" dropped air suspension car to match my other 55 Nomad. Yes I'm calling mine, a Monad since all the chrome and SS will be flat black or carbon fiber. Because I have had my other Nomad since I was 18 and it was built the month I was born. I'm tired of polishing chrome for show but will never get rid of her. I have had it too long now.
