No single automotive design better characterizes the industry’s late-1950′s flamboyance than the 1959 Cadillac, which incorporated totally new styling and those FINS!
The ’59 Cadillac incorporated special one year only and one model only, side trim panels and moldings that set it apart from any other car on the road and it looks Fabulous!
Since restoration this Cadillac has been enjoyed and used by our client, Gilbert Rivera of Temecula. He bought it for his 40th birthday eight years ago. He has shown it at local events and enjoyed it immensely. It has a couple of small scratches and dents that can easily be repaired to bring it to top condition. The restoration, completed in 2004, was to car show and touring quality. It was not meant for competitive concours settings. But it is truly stunning!
The speedometer is presently not operational and the odometer presently reads 55,471 miles, however we have no documentation regarding its accuracy. The air conditioning is fantastic and blow very cold. All the windows and other accessories operate well.
