1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible SedanCCCA Senior Award, Hydramatic, Perfect for Tours and Shows
This is a perfect Holiday gift!!! This award-winning and gorgeous 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Sedan has toured 12,900 miles since a complete beautiful restoration. Optioned with Cadillacs game changing Hydramatic automatic transmission, she offers terrific performance, reliability and ease of use. She’s ready to be enjoyed on tours as well as on the showfield. She is one of just 400 made in 1941 and is incredibly rare with the Hydramatic. Her name is “Lady Evalyn”.
Shipped to New York on June 20, 1941, this Cadillac eventually made its way to the West Coast and was restored in the 1995-96. She benefitted from a complete nut and bolt restoration and obviously nothing was missed. It was acquired by the well-known late Leo Gephart in January 1996. In April 1997, Mr. Gephart showed her at the CCCA Spring Grand Classic where she earned 95.25 points and was awarded Senior Badge No. 2067. Mr. Arnold Civins of New Jersey acquired her from Mr. Gephart on October 19, 2009, adding 1,500 additional miles with the Cadillac LaSalle Club and continued her cosmetic maintenance. Over $8,000 was invested in a cosmetic refreshing by Mr. Civins to make her look stunning today. She is in the same or better condition today as when she earned 95 points at the CCCA Grand Classic.
The livery is impressive with her Valcour Maroon metallic and the abundance of gorgeous chrome. The paint is in overall very nice condition with excellent shine and luster. She has a few small touch ups in the normal use areas such as near the hood, etc. Overall, the paint is in beautiful condition. We love the beautiful Cadillac badging throughout the exterior, including on the wheel covers, as well as the contrasting red painted wheels. The fender skirts with the Cadillac medallion as well as the running board delete give it a streamlined look that we love!
In December 2015, she was treated to $8,000 of refreshening to include a new convertible top and significant chrome work. The tan canvas convertible top is in as-new condition today. The tan canvas top boot is also perfect fitting and as-new. Much of the chrome was also re-done and is in show condition today. She also features an optional spotlight.
The interior is striking in its cream and maroon leather. The leather is very soft and supple and the seating is very comfortable. The woodgrained dash is perfect and is very elegant. The chrome on the interior is a combination of rechromed and beautiful original. The maroon carpeting is correct and shows little to no wear. The interior overall is in beautiful condition today. She includes the optional heater and AM radio.
The engine compartment benefitted from a fresh detailing. It looks very impressive and would do well in a show today. The venerable 346 CID V8 offers 150 hp and being paired to the Hydramatic delivers excellent acceleration and performance. We were very surprised by the performance of this Cadillac. Reportedly, she will go 100 mph.
Her chassis is still gorgeous today. Having benefitted from a complete restoration previously, the chassis was beautifully cleaned and painted and in excellent condition today. She is in high point condition today and obviously has been maintained and detailed after each tour. She blew through our 154-point inspection with no issues and runs and drives beautifully. She comes complete with a car cover, a large binder of service history and historical documentation, as well as manuals.
This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a CCCA Full Classic that can be used on the show field and participate well in 1,500 mile CARavans and tours.
