It may be FWD. 85 was the crossover year for Cadillac. The Coupe D was still what I have... the big RWD monster. But if memory serves, the Sedan D went over to what would eventually be termed the H body, but it was mid-year. They may be on to something here!

Tell me you're serious. You're the first car to do a v8 swap!

not to be rude or anything but it'* kinda hard to believe that you have done a v8 swap that has never been done before in just 4 days...... not trying to be an *** or anything but youre either really good or full of it...If you are that good I will be the first to apologize...please post pictures....

Great call on that C series. It was like the older B/D (Caprice/Fleetwood). The C was an extended H. The bay is only 1 inch deeper due to the front end design difference. Even the mounts should be close, but I'm checking on that. I might even find a pic to post...This could be an inexpensive trade if it'* got around 50,000 from a yard. DP has a V8 option and it'* complete from motor to trans. Depends on your budget.
