I have a 346 Cadillac flathead that was completely rebuilt and is ready to run. I built this for a project that never got off the ground. It came out of a 1940 Cadillac. Stock specs on this Cadillac engine are 346ci - 150HP - 300 lb/ft torque, it will be more since the rebuild is .40 over and will have dual carbs and the high compression Edmunds heads. It has custom stainless water necks I had fabricated, new water pump and some custom valley covers. The clutch is new and the flywheel has been resurfaced. I have a Burrell 2x2 carb intake and a set of super rare Edmunds finned aluminum heads for it. The heads are nice and straight with no cracks or corroded areas. I have a bunch of spare engine parts to go with it. The "Genernator" is custom made to fit with the Burrell dual carb intake.

What a beauty! That would be perfect for a prewar coupe. Good luck selling.
