Presented in beautiful “Turquoise Blue” with blue cloth interior, this gorgeous Cadillac Series 62 sedan will take pride of place in any collection.
This stunning matching numbers Cadillac has been in the ownership of a Cadillac enthusiast since 2014. The vehicle was imported into Australia in early 2011 with the Continental kit installed when bought from the Daniel Schmitt dealership in Missouri that year. During the current ownership the Cadillac has undergone a full mechanical overhaul with no expense spared by Mr. Callum Hazzard at Red Line Auto, Bundaberg while engine machining was done by Jacobsen Engineering also in Bundaberg. The only modifications from standard during the overhaul was the distributor being converted to electronic ignition and generator changed to an aftermarket alternator that looks similar in appearance to the original, otherwise all parts were kept as original as possible for posterity.
New suspension bushings were also installed along with ball joints, brake overhaul and slightly stiffer springs for the rear to improve handling without compromising on ride quality. The vehicle now drives exactly how a Cadillac should with relatively effortless acceleration with brilliant ride quality one would expect with a luxury vehicle from the late 50’s.
Further work was carried out in the interior with new loop pile carpeting matching the interior specification and colour scheme. The Cadillac retains its original valve radio still in fully functioning condition that plays through the front speaker while an aftermarket Bluetooth radio plays through the rear speaker adding a little touch of modern convenience. The continental kit was taken off but retained by the owner which is included in the sale.
All receipts for work carried out over the last 3 years now totalling over $33,000.
The Cadillac comes with a box full of documentation from the last 3 owners going back to it’s purchase in the USA. Also included is the continental kit, some spare parts taken off during the mechanical rebuild, reproduction of the 1958 owner’s manual and a 1945/1958 shop manual + supplemental manual.
These stunning Cadillacs are seldom seen on the roads today and are an appreciating asset ready to be snapped up by the savvy collector.
Vehicle comes with RWC.
