I used the vehicle as a daily driver from 2002-2006 when it was parked for mechanical rework that was not completed.   It has a 5. 3 liter V12 with matching numbers to the chassis.   The engine can be started with all cylinders operating but does not run well (it appears to have intake vacuum leaks).  

Beyond it's incredible appearance and performance when operating. this classic vehicle was famous for some highly unreliable sub-systems such as electrical. carburation. brakes. fluid leaks. overheating. and general mechanical. In an attempt to remedy much of that. this vehicle has had extensive mechanical modifications aimed at improving its performance and reliability.  

These modifications include such items as hardened steel fine-threaded inserts (Keencerts) in almost all of the engine's threaded holes mated with stainless steel and alloy socket-head cap bolts.   It has been retrofitted with custom intake manifolds accommodating quad Weber 2bbl side draft carburetors and custom built exhaust headers to side pipes.   The engine compartment wiring and charging system have been entirely reworked along with the cooling system (added oil cooler). redone cylinder heads with new valves. timing chain and camshafts. redone front and rear suspensions. a new optical ignition system. a totally redesigned Cadillac power braking system. and a high performance fuel delivery system.   The drive train was fully functional when the car was last driven.  

With the exception of these engine modifications. the car is largely original.   Actual mileage is unknown as it was run with a disconnected speedometer so the 85k miles showing is not accurate.   There are quite a few spare parts that are included with the car.   Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer but I'll be happy to help make the arrangements.   If interested. don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions you may have.
