A guy won the championship at Kalamazoo Speedway in the street stock division. He won alot of races with it. It's a high banked 3/8 paved track though.

My cousin races there with him and knows a bit about the car. Is there any info in particular your looking for? If you post your question on here we can probably help, if not shoot me an e-mail and I will help if I can.

what info are you looking for?
All I do know is heads fro ma 1969 or 70 472/500 make the most power. they make gobbs of torqu. there is a place that makes cams for them they also make headers. they are modified ford 460 headers.I think the name of the place was maximum torque specialties. something like that.
Did you know Cadilac made the first overhead valve pushrod engine. a few years before the chevy guys did. they also had a performance division, most stuff never made it to production.

No, I did not know about the history. What I needed help with was matching the Cad to a Muncie. I have a flywheel and adapter plate and am going to call QuarterMaster about a clutch but was not sure about drilling the crankshaft for a pilot bushing. At this point, I think I'll assemble all of the parts, take them to my machinist and give him the headache. I am sure someone somewhere has already done this and I was hoping I wouldn't have to reinvent the wheel. Thanks.
