Vehicle Description

I bought this car in 2003 - a perfectly running car from a specialty Cadillac dealer in Hollywood. I have the paperwork, the original owners manual and clear CA pink slip. I paid $15,500 for the car at that time - it was a great running, driving and looking car. Then I started building what you see in the digital renderings - a "front-mid" engined, rear transaxle supercar. The engine set back work is all done as you can see in the photos, the engine is now behind the front axle. The rear has been fabricated for a late model Corvette transaxle with independent suspension. the car should have weight distribution of 50/50 front to rear. The engine set back allows plenty of room for turbos! The car is very nice - the rust is surface only from storage - this is a very clean, accident free southern California car. The car was a complete and great running car before the fabrication work and all of the parts are included - the interior, the trim, the bumpers, the top, the engine, the transaxle, the custom made suspension parts including the jigs for them - everything is included! The fabrication work was all done in house at Performance Fabrication in San Carlos. It is absolute top notch work. I have over $35,000 in fabrication and parts invested plus the original cost of the car for a total that's over $50,000. I also have a 2008 appraisal book from a top appraisal company for the car as a project-in-process showing a replacement value of $64,000. I'm asking $7,500 for the whole lot - finish this car and it will be amazing!
