I Know that this will be highly frowned upon by any Cadillac purist. I would like to supercharge my 1964 coupe de Ville 429. Is there any way to make an adapter so I can force feed this monster. I know this won't win any races but I want to achieve the "why not" factor. Has anyone ever seen a supercharged 429?

Not sure there is a bolt on for that available. I wouldn't just slap one on it as i bet it grenades something without some upgrades/refreshing first...
Now that being said how about a NOS setup... You can get away with a decent HP increase with stock.

That is an option. I have this sick image in my head of a bug catcher sticking out of the hood. I want to keep the original engine but I have to say I am leaning toward something else that is easier to find parts for. Keeping it original is getting pretty costly.

Consider a tunnel ram then... No real mods ness(they help of course). Lots of tuning needed and they run like shit in cold but definitely have the wow factor.
