Which one's more popular & why?  

Basically  the  same car!  in the 66-77 years.  More  Toros were sold... more 
in wrecking yards..

And the 472/ 500 ci Cads were real popular in  Chevy / GMC   trucks...


However - the "old" Toronado conversion (Not Olds Toronado, "old  Toronado") 
used the longitudinal mounted engine and tucked-in transmission. The  newer 
Cadillac installations have used transverse mounted power-packs with  subframes. 
Perhaps a cleaner install.  But links to the wheels, both power  and 
placement links, will always be an issue.
