1960 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe, CA “Black Plate”, 70k Miles, Four Owners!

This is a rare find.  This is  a three owner “black plate” 70,000 mile original Southern California motorcar.  This gorgeous Coupe has been collector owned in the La Jolla and San Diego area since new.  It was recognized early on as a rare and valuable motorcar.  It is largely original with only sympathetic restoration work performed to keep it in new condition.

This car is a fabulous “black plate” Southern California car that has always seen proper care and attention. This is wonderfully documents with the original sales invoice and window sticker, annual registrations dating back to 1969, maintenance and repair receipts dating back to 1977.

This Cadillac was purchased new by Mr. Nile D. Poyner on August 5th, 1960 at Marvin K. Brown Cadillac, Inc. in San Diego, CA. Interestingly, the original sales invoice (which accompanies the car) states that the model is a “Club Coupe”. Mr. Poyner paid $5,193.60 for the Cadillac.  Mr. Poyner kept ownership of the Cadillac until January 1979 when it had accumulated 50,000 miles.

In January of 1977 it was sold to Mr. John Seiler of San Diego.  Mr Seiler also retained all the receipts, journals and registration details until he sold it on October 18, 1985 to a well known collector and Superior Court Judge, Terry J. Knoepp.  Mr. Knoepp brought the motorcar back to preserved concours condition, kept fastidious documentation and showed the car from 1985 until he sold it to Shannon Sigler, also a large collector of Cadillac’s in San Diego.  Mr. Sigler acquired the Cadillac in 2006 with approximately 68,805.

The Cadillac comes with full maintenance logs and receipts since October 1977, when the car had about 46,900 miles.  Also included are California license registration cards for each year since 1969!

The original window sticker shows that the Cadillac included the following options: Power Windows, 6-Way Electric Seats, White sidewall tires, Heater, Radio, EZ Eye glass and Dor-Gards for both doors.  The total MSRP was $5,734.95.

The chrome and glass on this car are also original and very good to excellent, reflecting the fact that this has been pampered in Southern California since new.

The interior is a fabulously preserved original.  Only the dash pad and carpet have been replaced; the carpet not due to wear but due only to the staining from the original padding underneath the carpet (the original carpet is preserved in the trunk of the Cadillac- see photos).  And the color combination is spectacular!!  White livery with Turquoise interior!

The motorcar was repainted in the original white and looks fabulous.  The Cadillac is definitely to show car standards and could be brought to concours events but would likely not be a first place due to its preserved nature.

Every option on this car functions beautifully with power windows and all the customary Cadillac feature.

As with all Series 62’s, this motorcar is complete with a 390 cu in (6.4 liter) V-8 with 325 h.p.  In the past 50 years this Cadillac amassed 70,000 miles.  With about 21,000 Series 62 Coupes produced, how many have this history.  This is a virtually rust free, “black plate” Southern California example with three owners since 1960.  This is almost as good as it gets.

The Collector Car Price Guide has the 1960 Cadillac Series 62 Two Door Coupe valued from $22,400 for No. 2 Condition to $32,000 for Number One Condition.  We are offering this at a tremendous value and this particular example will prove to be a fabulous investment.
