Ch350 found me a 1973 parts car in jacksonville and I went and got a bunch of the parts off of it before sending it to the cadillac heaven in the sky. I also found out my tail lights are from a 72 and my trim is nothing like the trim of other cadillac models haha. Even the door trim etc. Who knows where my rear bumper is from... My front looks pretty close to the 73 though. Too bad I didn't have mine right there next to it. If I had more time I would have stripped more from the car prolly but I think I got a fair amount of stuff seeing as the car was complete before I got there.


Two other random caddies out there:


Some other neat cars there that will be for sale soon

You sure did a good job with the car. Theres a guy up here selling a complete rear roll down window with frame for an early 70s hearse for 30 bucks. Parts cars are the best

would be neat if it fit my hearse but I don't have a roll down

Paradox, glad you can use the parts, after what all you took, and me getting all the switches and the new radiator. the car brought $547.00 dollars at the scrap yard, so it was all free for both of us..I'll bring that beast hood to you this weekend also, and fender
