What would be the odds to find a running Cadillac with a 472 / 500 still tagged and legal where you can take it out for a drive to test the engine?

What would the odds today in the year 2020 to find a 45 year old 1976 Cadillac in immaculate condition with 29,313 miles ?

What would the odds be to find it was recently purchased from it's original owner 89 years old with full documentation of the original purchase?

What would be the odds that the new owner is doing a "resto-mod" and is pulling out the flawlessly running 500 cubic inch engine with an original 800cfm Quadra-Jet carburetor and it's mated TH400 transmission to re-power with a turbo Cummins diesel?

Finding any running Cadillac engine today is a big deal but finding this virgin 500 is the HOLY GRAIL, possibly the last great low mileage 500 take out find ever !

What a find !
