I Got A New Project Car! 200 mph Cadillac Revealed on Finnegan's Garage Ep.119 

Ganger 343 k
97% 13 000 324

I've owned this car for several years now but building a really fast 1961 Cadillac Coupe De Ville is a project I've wanted to create for over 10 years. After watching several standing-mile racing events at airport runways I decided that someday I'd create a stock-appearing Caddy that could run 200 mph and 8 seconds in the 1/4 mile. The plan has always been to run a stock-appearing billet wheel with beadlock tire-retention rings. I ordered these wheels 9 months ago and they finally arrived so Newbern and I drug the car out of storage and put it into the garage to start measuring for tires and a new rear axle. Sadly, the wheels we dreamed about are not going to work on the Caddy but we are undeterred and will continue march forward with this awesome project.

I am so European when I saw the title I thought the car was going to be built to drive at 200mph not finish a drag race at that speed, still an impressive goal but not quite what I was expecting! 😁

Shame about the wheel issues. Why cant the main part of wheel lip that is slightly bigger be turned down on a CNC? Seems like a simple solution

It’s a forward mounting tire not reverse mount like you were trying mount it on the front of the rim it will drop right on

Minor critique, the audio level when you were introducing us to the car was low, I had to turn up my headphones. Then you jumped to trying to mount the tires and the music was closer to a normal level. A bit jarring and had to flail for the volume control as it was then too loud.

Sometime you gotta be different and bold, cut that baby up and let her fly. I got me 70 C-10 ima chop the top to make it detachable for summer time when I hit the beach or backroads. Do it brotha, be unique.

Flip the rim and mount them upside down so you can get the tire bead under the second lip which should be the skinniest part of the rim

maybe cut a groove in the barrel where the opposite side of the tire bead contacts it and you can still use the caddy rims ....look at the steel rim without a tire and youll see what im talking about....the barrel is stepped, not a straight line, and when i install a tire i line it up in the groove to slip it over...

Don't listen to any of these people whining like it makes a lick of a difference what you do to this car... It was sitting in a damn motor trend warehouse somewhere for God knows how long, 8 years did you say? This crap happens all the time... At least you'll be using it and building a badass whip that will be enjoyed by many. Instead of taking it to showroom spec, then garaging it for its entire life to be enjoyed by who? Your neighbors the couple dozen times a year you open that garage bay door to get out the motorcycle you have parked behind it? The one you hardly ever ride? Lol. I never understood people's aversion to modifying older cars... You're going to love it, you're going to actually USE it... That's already better than what would happen if you sold that one to someone so you could cut up a different example... An example which could easily be made into whatever it is the commenters seem to think it should be, just as easily I'm sure because you're not going to go 200 mph in a junked out rusty death trap surely. So to hell with all these guys. Likely just saying it bugs them because they think it makes them sound like "true car guys" which makes me laugh... Glad you're doing this instead of selling it to some guy who will "get to it next year for sure" for the next two decades. Get it Finn!

I'm sure this has been said, but "custom" wheels are not necessarily "race" wheels. Get a bead-lock wheel that works, and make the lock ring to look like the Caddy wheel cover. JMF TAG

I think you will need to drop down to a drag radial tyre or you won't have any space to do the 4 link and new rear axle and brakes. I will say it is a combo that I would never have seen with twin turbo's

On one hand that is one minty 61 and seems excessively nice to turn into a full on Drag Car. That said I fully support the idea of turning a land yacht into some quarter mile ripper. Ever since I played Ridge Racer V and got my hands on the Danver Spectra a stupid fast land yacht has been a dream for me as well (thought technically it was a drift car).
