    additionally, the 4500 can be easily overhauled, easily up-mod its performance, easily supercharged .. the Northstar .. well .. give it a try and be ready to flip your pockets inside out.

    The 4500 has just as good acceleration to 50 mph as the Northstar. The only time the Northstar shines is speeds well north of that. As far as modifying the Northstar for more power, you are out of luck. The engine can hardly even hold up to it's own stock power output. These engines are plagued with headbolts literally pulling out from the block. Once this happens, if you're lucky, you can timesert the block but otherwise, the engine block has to be replaced.

    Something else worth mentioning, is the 4500 could also be replaced with the 4900 block. They are identical physically but the 4900 has a longer stroke. I would estimate one would gain about 25 hp doing this swap and would have around 225 hp. This however would put an additional strain on the transmission since it's already pretty tender at 200 hp.

    sure looks like it .. even the matching top which is expected on the Montana Blue ...
    to be sure, check for code 21U in the sticker by the spare tire.

    But still, even with 1speed forward and 4 rearward - nice item.
    I wonder, is it still needs all rubber parts change + some gaskets etc?
    How about brake system - damn old and not used....

    BTW - it is no reserve auction now.

    On the Allante section of Cadillac forums means never having to say you are sorry! Ouch!

    Ok, hids, this thread started with the 960 mile Allante. Well it's back and no reserve!. Zal, you should start a poll to let us guess the final price. Should be interesting.

    Dealer delivered to:

    Cadillac Motor Car
    ???? Clark St
    Detroit, MI

    That's the old Cadillac central office in Southwest Detroit. (Former client. Nasty neighborhood, btw.)

    Did all the Allante stickers have this listed as the "Dealer"?

    I love the Q&A the best .. Invest $60,000 in 1992 money and in return collect $25,000 .. excellent way to get rich ..
    BTW, the highest price selling OEM Allante in the past 5 years sold in Phoenix for about $30k in '07, around 20,000 miles I believe. The modified folding hard top Allante, was much more.

    A POLL? I know how to do that on all the other sites, but in this site, the method eludes me.


    one last thing .. it is a 1992, in my opinion, the best of the best model years. My guess, maybe $20 to $25k.
    except for one thing .. 1G6VS3382NU126253 .. NOT A HARD TOP SERIES.
    The "investor" wasnt thinking straight there either and didnt get a NU100XXX series car. DUHHH !
    IF it was a 100 car, maybe it would hit $35,000 or more.






    Q:
    how is it that this beautiful car has only those miles? thank you doc
    A:
    It was bought and put away for investment. only started and driven very few miles to keep everything well oiled and working. thanks Butch
