Beautiful morning. Got supplies, mowed about 2 acres. Finished lunch, looked up, solid rain.

That appears to be an H/O version. The LP500 S wing is in the way, can't tell if it is the HO455 or a W25.

W25 or W30? You're right, can't tell from pic.
At this point I'd take either one.

This isn't your father's Oldsmobile.

Moms grocery getter was a '57 Chrysler New Yorker station wagon with a 392 Hemi in it.

Dad drove what ever.

The 511 was only used for a 1 0r 2 years around 1973, at the time I was attending a GM Cadillac training center. Gas mileage was about 6 mpg probably.


Easy can walk to a very large nationwide old car parts supplier and restoration shop right in his town

I searched using the parameter 511 Cadillac engine, it does not come up.

Again here is the list of all engines produced or used by Cadillac, the largest engine on the list is the 500.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillac_V8_engine

My guess in the video, they went with a 4.350 piston and a stock 500 stroke crank to get their 511. A 4.350 piston is a pretty common size, wrist pin location would have to be considered.

4.350" dia = 14.8617 sq. in

14.8617 x 4.304 (stock 500 stroke) = 63.96474 cubed x 8 = 511.7179" cubic inches.

You can make an engine anything you want.

Hell, I used to build "462" ponchos.

They sure as **** didn't come out the factory door that way.

And, quite a few engine "labels" weren't literally what the numbers said.

One of our short track stock cars had 440 CI Chevy, the other a 355 CI Chevy. Neither of which are factory Chevy numbers.

Iíve found the factory numbers to be pretty accurate.

I couldn't say one way or the other.

I can tell you that not everything us always well documented, particularly with Fords. I had an escort that didn't exist by model year, but all the parts were in the dealer system.

FWIW, the next time I build a motor, it's gonna start with a 455 Buick, and I'll probably be totally impure and slip it into a 1968 Firebird.

I've only ever wanted stock.

I don't give a **** about speed or acceleration.

Call me unimaginative I guess.
