have a Cadillac engine to begin with. From the docs, the guy who built
it built his first in '67. The one in the pictures is a '70, but the
bios for the men listed on one of the stickers listing them as drivers
seem to be in other series than can-am.
Either way, I was wanting something unique and unlike anything you would
likely come across in normal course of driving. My only problem is going
to be the cost of the alluminum to skin it. I checked at my normal steel
supplier, and he said 4'x8' sections will cost about $90 each. I guess
it won't be that bad since a fiberglass body would probably run more
than a grand also. Plus a fiberglass body would probably be semi average
as anyone could get one.
