331 cid OHV V-8 engine, four-barrel carburetor, 190 HP at 4,000 RPM, Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension, semi-floating rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes; wheelbase: 126"


Although Cadillac is often remembered for the radical styling of its models by the end of the 1950s, the GM Division’s dramatic postwar renaissance was far more revolutionary, with the all-new bodies and styling for 1948 and the dawn of Cadillac’s all-new and modern overhead valve V-8 engine in 1949. Annual updates provided additional refinement, with revisions for 1950 including lower and sleeker contours, long rear decks, sweeping front fenders, and a broken rear-fender line. Cadillac’s signature “egg-crate” grille became even larger and the hood extended out further than before for a truly commanding visage. A modern one-piece windshield, rounded parking lights, and long, sweeping rear fenders with neat, upwardly-flowing tailfins rounded out the stylistic changes. Fine detail changes for 1951 were followed for 1952 – Cadillac’s Golden Anniversary year - with more chrome bumper adornments, bolder “V” emblems suggesting the power of Cadillac’s V-8 engine, plus improved trunk space and a pair of exhaust ports through the rear bumper. New four-barrel carburetion and exotic piston coatings, plus a full dual exhaust system with four mufflers, helped raise output of the 331 cubic-inch Cadillac engine to 190 HP at 4,000 RPM and 322 foot-pounds of peak torque at just 2,400 engine revolutions.

As before, Series 62 was the most popular and important Cadillac model line, with a broad range of body styles comprising the Sedan and Coupe, upmarket Coupe DeVille, and the glamourous Convertible Coupe. New standard features for 1952 included self-winding clocks, dual-range Hydra-Matic drive, improved direction-signal indicators, glare-proof mirrors, stannate-treated pistons, four-barrel carburetors, along with hydraulic window lifts on the Coupe DeVille and Series 6267X Convertible Coupe, the undeniable image leader. For the first time, power-assisted steering was optionally available across the board; bodies were built by Fisher and interiors trimmed by Fleetwood, both part of the GM family. Priced from $4,110, the Series 62 Convertible Coupe weighed 4,419 pounds and 6,400 examples were produced for 1952.

This highly attractive 1952 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe features an excellent color combination including maroon upholstery and a matching convertible top in high-quality vinyl material, accented by very nice brightwork. Additional curb appeal is provided by a maroon-accented “Continental” spare-tire kit and chrome wire wheels mounting period style wide whitewall tires. A comprehensive restoration was completed in 2006. Amenities include a radio and clock and optional power steering provides cruising ease. The 331 cubic-inch V-8 engine was balanced and blueprinted during 2014 for exceptionally smooth running and strong performance. Both the engine and transmission are original to the vehicle. Underhood, both the engine and surrounding engine bay are very well-detailed and features factory-correct components, finishes, manufacturer emblems, and ancillaries. The electrical system is supported by a new wiring harness, the brakes are new, and the hydraulic system for the convertible top is also new. An electric fuel pump was also installed, assuring reliable fuel delivery for the 190 HP V-8 engine. Since acquisition by the consignor during 2006, this wonderful 1952 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe has been sparingly used, having covered only an approximate 125 miles. Great looking, very well-restored and properly sorted, this 1952 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible delivers everything that is good in a vintage automobile – with relative rarity and outstanding presence.
