1971 Cultass W-30v

By: Bruce 03/04/2020

Resto-mod Cutlass.

I have dubbed this a Cutlass W-30v morphing the Dr. Olds W-30 machine and the CTSv. Since that is what this car is. I spent the most money I have ever spent on an engine and transmission (full driveline) for one of my projects. I got a 2013 Cadillac CTSv drive line to put into my 71 Cutlass. The motor is a bespoke motor from GM that they only put into the CTSv’s, Corvettes and ZL1 Camaros. It is called an LSA by GM it’s a supercharged LS backed by a 6-speed auto transmission. I am very excited to have 650ish modern horsepower in my Old’s…
