Murray Pfaff, owner of Pfaff Designs (www.pfaffdesigns.com), is best known as the creator of many of the coolest project vehicle designs (renderings) for other companies and individuals (like Sammy Hagar) to ever grace the pages of major magazines. However, the tables were turned when Pfaff decided to take his classic 1956 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, which he’s owned for 15 years, from rendering to reality, and make it available to his client companies for shows and special events.
This one-of-a-kind custom Cadillac, with its blend of old school style and 21st Century technology, is a collaboration of shops and aftermarket companies to showcase their work…and definitely worthy of being featured in Factory Tuned.
Body paint is Glasurit Dark Silver Poly with Ultra-Violet Purple and Ice Pearl flames and scallops and Galaxy Green pin striping. Pfaff designed and laid out the graphics, Charlie Vickerie (Waterford, Michigan) painted it and Jeff Shea (Warren, Michigan) hand striped it.
Interior: PJ’s Trim Shop (Hemlock, Michigan) created the black leather, purple suede and gray leather interior, featuring Nissan bucket seats embossed with Cadillac Eldorado emblems; custom door and dash inserts (by Pfaff); 1960 Cadillac instrument cluster with Classic Instruments gauges; Ididit tilt steering wheel column; modified 1960 Cadillac leather wrapped steering wheel; 2006 Impala center console; custom stainless door sills with embossed leather inserts; overhead console with lights and storage compartment; Vintage Air rear mount AC/heat system; SPAL power windows and remote alarm system; and Painless 18-circuit wiring harness (wired by Tom Gardner).
Engine/Transmission: A 500-horsepower, 500-cubic-inch, V-8 (built by Richard Potter), with a Holley 850 Street Avenger carburetor; custom-machined Offenhauser 365 Cadillac finned aluminum valve covers; polished aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold; MSD 6A ignition; Koken air cleaner; Earl’s braided black lines and fittings; and Tuff Stuff chrome engine accessories. Mated to a TH400 transmission (built by Detroit Gearbox) with a B&M Quicksilver shifter, Coan 2500-rpm stall torque converter and a polished aluminum “devil skull” shift knob.
