celebrated my 80th birthday last week. I guess, as much as I hate the
idea, it is time to part with some of my toys.
The trophy pictured on the hood is from the
2016 Brimfield MA Antique Auto Show (600 - 800 cars). It
was awarded as "Steve Magnante's Choice". If you know who Steve
is the award really means something. The car has received a number of
other trophies and is very popular at shows & cruise nights.
is Comfortable, Reliable, Fast & Economical (20+ MPG on regular
unleaded). 6000 adult driven miles on the build with no problems ever.
started with the cleanest 80 - 84 Coupe I have seen in many years.
Victorian Plum Firemist w/matching vinyl top and red leather interior.
Purchased from 2nd owner with 49,900 miles, exceptional original paint &
interior, near perfect chrome & stainless trim. The original 4.1 V6
& 2004r transmission worked as well as it ever did but that was painfully
slow and not that economical.
To make this car a modern cruiser we did a complete mechanical rebuild.
upper & lower, front & rear control arms were replaced along with tie
rods, center link, steering damper, sway bar bushings & links, front
hubs/rotors (cross drilled & slotted), calipers & pads, front &
rear brake hoses, wheel bearings, rear brake drums, shoes, wheel cylinders,
hardware, emergency brake cables, drive shaft & u joints, all brake &
fuel lines and more.
Cadillac chassis is the same as a 1996 Impala SS so we used an A/C Delco
rebuilt SS steering box and clean used SS front & rear sway bars, springs,
transmission cross member and rear axle (17,000 mile 3.42 posi-traction).
engine is a 3000 mile 6.0 L96 from a 2013 Silverado 2500 with an L99 (2013
Camaro, Corvette, Caprice) intake manifold, throttle body, fuel injectors &
fuel rail, Holly high mount accessory package, Holly coil covers, Hooker/Holly
exhaust manifolds, 2.5 stainless exhaust w/ high flow cats and walker quiet
power stainless mufflers. The
transmission is a 3000 mile 4L60e from a 2013 Silverado 1500 with a corvette
servo and a shift kit added.
entire project was professionally done by a shop that specializes in LS
conversions and custom tuned by a shop that also specializes in LS vehicles. It
looks and drives like a professional job.
interior is all original including carpets & mats. Everything works
as it should including the Automatic Climate Control.
exterior has the original vinyl top, mostly original paint (some touch-up over
the years), new bumper fillers and it all looks & shows very well.
The chrome, anodized aluminum and stainless is in excellent condition.
are a pair of good electric outside mirrors (car has a cable mirror on left and
a nonworking but manually adjustable electric mirror on the right), a spare
electronic climate control control panel and power module, and a very good red
dash pad (the original has a couple of very minor cracks) included with car.
