Naw, you dont want an 81, they were crap, you want either a 70-74 429/500 or a mid 90s Nothstar DOHC. The 307 is worthless, because of the small bore... assuming .030 over with a 350 crank would get you 333 cubes, but It would take custom pistons and it still wouldnt breathe for crap... get a 350...

Thanks for all the info. Think I will pass on the Caddy idea and go for a big block. Have a lead on a 427 to look at. Or go with a 350, at least all the aircon stuff wont be hard to get back on.

WAIT WAIT WAIT don't give up on the Caddy yet! I was about to put one together about 5 years ago but other things came around. It's still in my future.......

This is an awesome business. They've been around for a while and they have everything from mild to wild. Surf it for a while, everybody. Check out the wheels up '69 de Ville! Build a Caddy! 8.2 liters of luxo American balls! Yes! Yes! Yes!
