1941 Cadillac XLR
This is a custom one-off 1941 2 door coupe built by Tucci Hot Rods. There are over 3000 man hours in this build. Starting from the bottom up, the chassis is a hand made chassis by Tucci Hot Rods that accepts a 2006 C6 Corvette front and rear suspension. It uses Bilstein coilovers on all 4 corners, the motor is a 2006 XLR-V Cadillac dual intercooled supercharged Northstar. The supercharger has been ported and polished and now makes just over 500 rear wheel horsepower. The transmission is a 2006 Corvette 6 speed manual with a custom made McLeod 2 disc clutch. The front end of the car has been extensively modified by taking a stock 1941 grill and completely disassembling it and custom making the stainless uprights that were laid back, we then attached the original cross pieces of the grill to the uprights to give it a more streamlined look. The hood was then reformed out of 18 gauge steel to match with the new grill design. The hood was also pancaked to give it a much lower look. We retained all stock trim on the exterior of the car and had all the pieces rechromed. The rear fenders were welded to the body to make a much smoother transistion from body to fenders. The wheels are one-off by Colorado Custom, 20" wheels in the rear and 18" wheels up front. The tires are Falken Tires front and rear. It has a full Vintage Air A/C system, power steering, power brakes and power windows. It has a 2010 CTS-V Cadillac interior, where we took the center console and blended it into the 1941 dash. The gauges are Autometer built into the 1941 dash. It uses a Touch N Go push button start system. It has HID headlights. It also has one-off custom stainless steel headers and stainless steel exhaust with Borla mufflers, stainless steel gas tank with Aeromotive fuel system, and a yellow top Optima battery. This car has won numerous awards along with being invited to be displayed on the main floor at SEMA, on the cover of Hot Rod and Restoration magazine as well as being the feature car and on display at the 2013 Hot Rod and Restoration show in Indianapolis. It has been shot in a studio by Steet Rodder Magazine for a full feature. The Caddy has been picked for a Top 100 pick for Street Rodder Magazine. It won a 1st place at the 2013 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA. as well as 1st place in the Custom Rod category at the 2013 Detroit Autorama show.
