Hey guys I'm another new guy here I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions as I can't find a ton of info out there on any of the other Cadillac sites. This site has so much amazing info if I missed a post about this just let me know. I have a 64 75 Series Limo that I am building. The original 429 is done cracked piston and has been sitting with the head off of it for a few years. I have a 76 500 that I'm currently building to drop down into the car. I found one write up about installing a neWer motor into a 63/64 car... but the info was very vague and definitely had no information about the commercial series chassis. I know I need to find a new work th 400 to go with this motor sincere or no adapters available for my older Hydramatic . I also read that I need to find a front driveshaft piece from a 65 limo to make my combo work. does anyone else have any information about what all is needed for the swap. I am one of those guys that likes to have all my research done before I attempt something. I have two welders and a garage full of tools to get the job done just trying to get some pointers in the right direction!

Jason and myself have parted out Limo's.  I recently parted out a 64. The 64 came with a hydra-Matic tranny.

Yeah, I still have the 429 and hydramatic that came out of my car
