eaton 3:73 gears, 12 bolt posi, Front power disc and rear drums with a vacuum reserve tank.
Car was painted 8 years ago but only a few chips and some slight bubbling (on lower front fender and corner of door) show IF you look for them! I'd rate paint a solid 8, its PPG deep amethyst pearl, which looks like Fathom blue on deary days but on sunny days the pearl flashes a brilliant violet purple... PPL always comment on color! Bed has a textured roll-on liner that was painted same color as car. No rust or rot, frame is rock solid, panels are straight, all bright work shines as almost new. Owner before me had new quarters and paint done. He choose to shave marker lights and "SS" badging to give it a sleeper look. He had the car for 23 years, I've had it for 5, no fire sale here I just bought a 3rd classic and can't drive them all.
Car has ralley wheels with Mickey thompson street drag radials out back. Polished billet piston assist hood hinges, chrome, billet and stainless everywhere. ALL glass was replaced and had a light tint added prior to when I bought car.
I wish I had chosen a lower TQ converter as it being a stroker the power is there from idle. New headers didn't take heat paint well, large oil filter blocked by headers. Two choices, 1) relocation of filter, which I have kit and comes with car, or 2) short filter.
Elky is 98% done in my eyes, the personal touches you may want can still be added. Oh it runs on pump gas, engine has maybe 400 miles never tracked just local shows and cruising on weekends. always used Zaino wax system, great stuff!
Pics and what I've mentioned are to my best knowledge, I tried to be straight up and honest, I hope someone will enjoy this car for many years. P.S. cluster was changed at some point, actual mileage unknown, DMV miss labeled miles as 608,xxx because the "tenths" of a mile was listed.
Feel free to inquire if you have questions!
I reserve the right to end auction early

The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.

Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.
Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added "key control systems" to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.

Autoblog Podcast #327:
Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).
It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.
