The car would have to set up alot higher. Because the transmissions and transfer cases that take the type of torque these engines produce are not small. If you are doing it for greater performance, it won't perform better.

I got ans idea...

measure the caddy's wheel base and find a 4X4 that has the same wheel base and switch frames and all....you'll have the all wheel drive and it was already made to do the job...just switch them out....well...what do you think?? I have seen it done with smaller cars so why not a caddy?

The most recent issue of the Summit Racing catalog has the QuadraDeuce. And it don't sit much (if any) higher than most other Ford Deuce Coupes.

It gives a basic description of what parts went into it. Just look for an all wheel drive S-series Chevy and part it out.

The Cadillac cylinder heads flow well, so you may be able to stay with them. Add a cam intake and headers.

Caddy 500. I once saw a 4 wheel drive rolls royce with a caddy 500 cubic inch motor(8.2 liter). It ran in the alcan rally.

There are quite a few guys who have built 500 caddy powered four wheel drive vehicles. Takes a th400 transmission to survive behind those engines.

Yes. Most likely it will be he. Only I do not know about a transmission... What can give substantially high speed?
