    425 and 350, both freakin useless. if you lookin for light weight super torque and big,BIG horsepower, your on the right path. 1968 through 1976 caddy's with 472 or 500 cid definatly the way to go and lots of power to be made in the 4x4 range, idle to 4000 rpmand in most cases will bolt up with inexpensive mounting kits. check out www.500cid.com /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Why are the deals that fall into my lap more or less worthless /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I dont know--I'd take a free 425 caddy motor,I dont think they are that bad,granted its not a 500,but a 425 is still better than a 305!! Its still a Caddy motor!.And I think you could bolt a 500 in its place later real easy,I think the block and mounts are the same--. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
