If you want something to work on for cheap a 62 Cad might not be it, even with a chevy motor. In my opinion you are just ruining a good old car putting a cheap engine in it. Good running cad engines can be had for cheap. I have had 425/th400s given to me just to haul them off. A caddy deservs a caddy engine.

did 62cadillac ever fit the 350 chev into the caddy. we are also doing the same conversion with 350 crate motor and new turbo 400 trans and twin 4 barrel tunnel coming as well. costs in new zealand to rebuild our tired old 390 caddy deemed it over the top. the 350 chevy will blitz the caddy be reliable and parts easy to get. our caddy can be seen on youtube under pink cadillac lowrider its a 1962 coupe deville
