500 Caddy in a Monte.
Just wanted to share a 500 Caddy story that shows the great tourque these things make.
A guy on one of my Caddy forums put a basically stock caddy 500 in his 70 Monte carlo. It has a 3.70 geared rear and a turbo 350 tranny. It ran 14.3 in the 1/4. The neat thing is that on a track engine dyno, it only made 210 horsepower! Not sure on the tourque, but probably around 380-420 going by the 70-77 500 Caddy figures. Thats a 3700-3800 lb car. I just found it rear incredible that a big car with basically a stock engine and gearing could run this fast.
Anyway, Im thru gabbing. HG
I was built with the body of a God! To bad it was buddah.
