Cutting up a Mint 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVille: Finnegan's Garage Ep.120

18. nov.. 2020

In episode 119 I introduced you to my Caddy, which I bought to turn into a drag race and landspeed car. The goal is to run 8s in the 1/4 mile and 200 mph in a standing mile event while still cruising this luxurious behemoth on the street. In today's video, we completely strip the '61 down to a bare shell and then anger Kar Kulture Karens everywhere by cutting out the rust-free floors and trunk to make room for a new mandrel bent chassis. It's gonna be an awesome project car thanks to the dudes at MRC Fabrication in Kendersville, North Carolina. This shop specializes in off-the-deep-end builds and can custom build a chassis for nearly anything. Visit the shop's instagram profile ( MRCFABBULLARD ) for more photos of the build and all the other stuff they have created.

  • i never feel bad about a car older then the 90's getting cut up, the lack of technology from back in those days the chassis are all so shit especially for modern day power and comfort, all old cars are better drivers after they get a new frame put in so i say cut em all up FUCK PURITY make it fast and fun and safe

  • Why? Just... WHY??? It's one thing to salvage a rust bucket body and turn it into something, but taking a rust-free classic that could be restored to better-than-stock and doing, well, THAT to it? All so you can set a couple of "numbers? I hope some little old lady scolds you.

  • I have VERY mixed feelings about the "cutting up" of this car so far. I Can only hope that it retains its factory look and style and just performs to today's standards. That would be the best of both worlds.

  • So you’re replacing the chassis with a custom fabricated piece, and you’re replacing the engine with something else. You’re not going 200 MPH in Cadillac, you’re going 200 MPH in a Cadillac *body*. This thing will be no more a Caddy than a FC is a Camaro.

  • Sorry to here about your dad. I help my dad replace the noise on a 63 Cadillac and when I went to get my driver's license at 16, he threw me his Cadillac keys and said take it for your test. I was more nervous about driving his Cadillac and afraid of damaging my dad's baby than thinking about passing my test. After passing the test with the inspector, all the inspector said at the end of my driver's test was, wow what a nice riding car. BTW love that 56 Nomad next to the lift. I'm building a 55 Monad with a slightly tweaked 283, a turbo 400 and 2" dropped air suspension car to match my other 55 Nomad. Yes I'm calling mine, a Monad since all the chrome and SS will be flat black or carbon fiber. Because I have had my other Nomad since I was 18 and it was built the month I was born. I'm tired of polishing chrome for show but will never get rid of her. I have had it too long now.

  • You lost a longtime fan and subscriber. Shame on you and you call yourself a car guy. Bullshit. You could have gotten a clapped out shell and put your speedy frame under it and accomplished the same thing. What a shitty thing to do.
