I am still working on getting it finished up. I think it will be alot of fun. I know another dude with a mildly built 472 Caddy in his buggy and that thing runs hard. I have been working on this for about 2 years slowly but surely. Being unemployed for awhile slowed this build down alot along with this being my first build of this kind of level. I am not far from getting it out for a shake down run sometime in the next couple months. I am only a few items away from a neighborhood test drive with open headers though.

This is built as a 4 seat chassis and won't be the most super hardcore rig but should get me through many of the nasty trails.

I like to be different. Everyone has an SBC including my K5. Originally the build was slated to use a GM 250 inline 6 from a late 60's truck. I had the motor and was ready to start when a buddy of mine put the 500 Caddy up for sale cheap with a built BOP th400 for cheap also so I jumped on it. The motor was pulled from a running car and sofar seems to run ok. I resealed most everything and put an older non-egr intake on, advanced the cam 4*, and put a rear sump oil pan from a Eldorado on it. It is different and brings a little different flare and cool factor which I dig.  :headbang:

Ok, it is official. The Detroit is out and the spool is in the D60. My gear guy stopped by tonight and we swapped the Detroit in the D60 for a full spool. My Yukon axles are going back in when I reassemble the axle this weekend. Once this is done the front axle should be 100% complete and strong as hell. I have filled my trans but now the trans adapter is leaking so I have to pull the tcase out and reseal the adapter. The gas pedal is now done and I need to stop by ACE and get some cable to make the throttle cable. When that is done along with tightening alot of nuts and bolts and putting gear oil and covers on I should be able to drive it.
