    I do some Revells myself. I don't think I've ever seen a Caddy, but let me know if one is available. I'm also looking for a 1971 Olds 442 W-30.

    They made a 59 Eldo coupe and convertable way back when but it's been discontinued for some time. As far as what to power it. 500! Keep it Caddy. North stars are cool too but there's that whole "no replacement for displacement" thing . I own an LT1. Put a real motor in it:P.
