Finding a rust-free Cadillac from the 50s is a rare treat and creates an opportunity to create a truly unique classic ride. This low-mileage Series 62 Sedan was discovered rust-free in long term storage, and today, is presented with a quality restoration that was completed in 2012. This lovely Cadillac is available today with just 66,780 miles from new. Fine quality new chrome was used throughout, with the huge bumpers in excellent condition, and crisp trim moldings, rear wheel spats, and clean glass and rubber seals everywhere you look. Cadillac wire wheels are shod with modern BF Goodrich radial tires with wide whitewalls, and this modified Caddy sports late model Cadillac stainless-steel dual exhaust tips. Its a pure classic presentation from the outside with a few hidden bonuses features youll love. Step inside, and youll immediately notice the modern tan leather bucket seats, which are power adjustable and very supple. The driver will appreciate power brakes and power steering, with a modern tilt steering column and custom steering wheel. The carpets, door panels, headliner, and console are also new and lovely, and the owner added power windows and electric windshield wipers when the car was converted to 12 volts. A modern AM/FM/CD stereo joins Vintage Air heat and air-conditioning in the ultra-cool period dash, with a fully recalibrated speedometer and a new tinted glass windshield.

The big fuel-injected V-8 was first offered in 1970 and powered the Eldorado until 1975. They are rare and highly sought-after, with incredible torque and proven performance, and this example is in fine condition and runs out strongly. There is pretty much nothing to do but turn the key and enjoy the classic ambience of this big Cadillac combined with a new drivetrain. Take notice as it features both a classic appearance with an upgraded powertrain that takes this car to a whole new level of performance.
