Fred's Deville is on its way from Norway!

As you know, Carroll Cadillac is a world renown company and we are here to service the Globe with our personal signature repairs. Stay tuned as we bring you the story of Fred's Deville.

 

This job will consist of a complete rebuild including a complete inspection and an upgrade of any and all issues in need of repair or correction. We will also be addressing some rust and paint on the body. Our goal is to give Fred the feeling that his beautiful Deville just came out of the factory with the exception of having the only Head Studs to date for the Northstar installed for the peace of mind of knowing he will not endure Head Gasket failure.

 

Hello everyone, good news, Fred's Deville is here! We picked it up in the Galveston Sea Port, pier 10.

I would like to say, it was quite a trip!

 

I want to share a short collection of videos of before, during, and at the end of the trip. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them, LOL

 Unexpected Ice Storm!                                                 Safely back at CCC! Whew!

 

                                     

Before we do anything, we need to address the sludge from the trip! UG!

             

 

Much better!                                                 Gifts from Fred!! Thanks Fred, this stuff is awesome.

 

 The Calendar is in my office, and the big Sweden Cadillac symbol is on the back window of my Cowboy Cadillac!

The two smaller stickers make a fine rear impression on my wife an I's beach cruisers.

Some people like to store their stuff and I like to use them, makes for sharing and I like to share, this is why I do not wear ear phones, who wants to enjoy beautiful music alone?

 


 

Engine removal;
 
The time has come to get this jewel done and on its way back to Fred in Norway.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I want to thank our friend of Norway for his patients, this was never a rush job and we are actually on schedule, but it feels like were behind! UGH!
 
Anyhow, I am now going to build this engine and do quite a bit more to the car overall!
 
 
Were, back with more from Fred's Deville!!!!
We are showing some of this work on Facebook.
 
At this time, the engine has been reinstalled, I will be posting pictures soon!
