1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville with a LSA V8

This 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville was built by Hardcore Engine Builders in Hungary. The builders have upgraded every major component on this land yacht. The engine has been upgraded to a supercharged 6.2 L LSA V8 that produces 580 horsepower thanks to a Aeromotive EFI system. Behind that sits a 6L90-E six-speed automatic transmission connected to a Currie Ford 9″ housing and Strange diff with 3.55 gears. The car now rides on a Ridetech adjustable coilover suspension and stops thanks to CTS-V six-pistons disc brakes.

    This idea intrigues me. 59 isn’t my favorite year, but this job looks good enough, I would love to take her for a spin…

    Very true. I’ve been thinking about a 58 series 62, with LSA and suspension set up like CTS-V. Putting these guys on the list to do the work.

      Since parts would need to be ordered from the states (Cadillacs are not common in Europe believe it or not) it would take a long time and would be expensive as well.
