Hi 1946coupe, and welcome to the wonderful world of AACA forums ! Also thank you for posting the picture of your "new" old car. Just beautiful lines!  First, where in the world are you that the roads are so rough that you need a lift ? About 35 years ago I modified a '71 Eldorado convertible to stand tall and explore all over Mexico. If you need to modify a car for rough roads, off roads, and no roads, part of the equation must be correct choice of tires. Also you have to consider low clearance components (transmission pan in the Eldo for example - I did not protect it with a skidplate. Needed all the clearance I could get. I just carried a spare pan, gasket, and Trans oil. Did I eventually need it ? You bet I did ! You will get good advice from me and the REAL experts here. More from me later. Glad you joined us.  -  Cadillac Carl 


P.S.  What is wrong with the engine in it ?
