I get it. I had a 68 Cutlass with a column automatic. Never felt very sporty. A floor automatic with a console would have been better. To go in a way off topic perhaps, I saw a AAR Cuda with an automatic on the column. Amazing. Beautiful car though.

An LS engine transplant on an old Cadillac Brougham would cost a ton and be a fairly large project (a good amount of stuff would also need to be replaced too) - to the point of not being worth it. It's much easier in that case to just go out and buy a new model Cadillac instead.

Another way is to transplant the body onto the next gen body style with the LT1.

Or buy motor mounts and install in the existing one. These engine transplants are now very commonplace in many manufacturers, past and present. I just saw it in a 58 Cadillac. Or buy a late model Cadillac with one from the factory already in place. Think we have exhausted this by now, wouldn't you agree?

Yeah, this was exhausted when 22nd Oct 2016, 12:33 first decided to mention the modern LS swap, and how much they praise it.

It takes a lot more than just motor mounts to do this project. Ever do one yourself? Probably not.

True... but if you truly love the large wheelbase vehicle in which there is absolutely no current Cadillac equivalent, why not? You would be in great company. It's only money, and if your plans are to keep it, it's not a dollar and cents issue anyway.
