800 horsepower 1941 Cadillac, that's something you don't see everyday....... or ever! Over $90,000 spent and most of that was drivetrain and chassis. A pile of receipts and specs are included. The stock 1941 Cadillac body was pulled from the original frame and set on this high end custom chassis. Only 2,360 miles since finished.

EXTERIOR: It looks bone stock except the wheels. I think the 41 Cadillac is one of the most handsome cars of that era. It has massive amounts of chrome, big heavy chrome. It all sparkles, even the stainless trim. Unique features include lifting the flying lady hood ornament to open the hood, gas filler is under the taillight and this one has optional visor over the windshield. The body is clean and straight. Close any door with 2 fingers. The paint looks like a black mirror. The glass is all new. The aluminum wheels are custom made Budnicks, extra big in back. Has Hoosier 29x15.50 R-16 Pro Street tires in back, BFGs in front.

INTERIOR: Inside the car is restored to original 1941 specs with some tasteful upgrades. The painted wood grain trim is in beautiful shape. There's plenty of chrome inside and it all sparkles. The seats, door panels and headliner were all reupholstered correctly in the original gray cloth. Carpets and floor mats were made with sewn edges. Dynamat was used under the carpet for sound deadener. A brand new set of Classic gauges were neatly installed, they look like they belong there. It includes a tachometer and a clock. New EZ wiring. Has new Ididit steering column with original wheel. Seatbelts with shoulder belts were installed front and back. A B&M pistol grip, quarter stick shifter is mounted on a custom base.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: This is one of the coolest looking motor compartments I've seen. Firewall is smooth, the engine bay is all gloss black. The centerpiece is the motor, fully decorated in polished parts. It's a GM 572-620 hp crate motor that's been upgraded to almost 800 hp. Really cool Hilborn fuel injection system with K&N filters sit on top. The aluminum heads have been smoothed out and polished. It has MSD ignition system, custom made fat stainless headers and a unique cooling system. It has an external electric water pump with stainless braided heater hoses and stainless pipes to the radiator. There's a polished overflow bottle and a Vintage Air electric fan. It has chrome alternator, brake booster and master, polished steering linkage.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It was boxed upholstered and carpeted to match the inside, very classy.

UNDERSIDE: The underside should be the first category for this car. It's more then a little impressive. Has an Art Morrison boxed frame designed for this car. Up front it has tubular control arms with coil over gas shocks, sway bar and rack & pinion steering. Rear suspension is a 4 bar with coil over gas shocks. Bottom of the motor has chrome pan and high torque starter. The blueprinted TCI street and strip Turbo 400 auto trans with performance upgrades and heavy duty parts cost $5,798. Custom driveshaft connects to the 4.11 posi. The rear end is a narrowed Strange 9 inch with pro modular center, stainless axles and more. In back has a set of Pro Street Hoosier tires- 29x15.50R-16. An Aeromotive fuel delivery system and stainless tank supply fuel to the Hilborn injection. Wilwood brake system with discs at all 4 corners, braided hoses and new lines. The polished 3 inch exhaust goes right through the specially designed frame so it doesn't hang down below the car. It has Flowmaster mufflers and electric dumps. It's so cool hitting the switch and hearing that 572 without mufflers. Everything is new, everything is painted or polished. Floors are spotless.

This is unique, in a good way. A classic 41 Cadillac made into a pro street is not something you will find anywhere. The work was all done with high quality parts and labor. Very tastefully done too. I think it would be blast to drive. I want to pull into a cruise night an open those dumps!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
