THE ESSENTIALS

1959 Cadillac 62 Coupe- 62k mi., Two Family Car, Great for Restoration

[svgallery name=”1959_Cad_Coupe”]

This car is being sold for a good friend of ours and is a solid two family owned car since new and in need of a full restoration. The now runs and will drive onto a transporter to its new home.  This Cadillac Sixty-Two Coupe provides a perfect introduction to Cadillac’s inspiring beauty for 1959. From its dazzling new grille ensemble to its dramatically sweeping rear fins, it is a classic achievement in elegance and majesty of styling. The Sixty-Two Coupe- the most modestly priced of all Cadillac models-features richly appointed interiors beautifully combining fine, modern upholsteries in this broad selection of optional color schemes.

This coupe was bought new in 1959 from Mr. Smellsers in Colorado. He used the car for visiting nearby family and amassed limited miles. In about 1981, the senior Mr. Smellsers gave the car to his son who resided in California. The car was used very sparingly until it was given to the grandson of the original owner, Dennis Smellsers in Temecula, California in about 1992 having travelled about 64,000 miles since new.

Since the 1990’s the car has been parked outside in mild California weather. Since 2005 the car has been sitting under a covered carport. But the exposure to the elements has taken its toll and the car is in need of a restoration.

The car had not been started or driven for about 15 years and the total mileage is 64,316. The car is running well now, sufficient to drive into a transporter.  The engine seems strong as you would expect with low mileage.  A new fuel pump has been installed. The present owner has readied the car for exhibition to a new owner and to prepare it to drive onto a transporter. This is an excellent motorcar for someone looking for a solid, low mileage car to restore with a well known history since new.

Interesting Fact: The Cadillac Coupe DeVille started out as a trim level of Cadillac vehicles, but eventually became its own line in 1958, with production continuing until 2005. This full-size luxury car gets its name “DeVille” after the French translation, meaning “of the town”.   The model was first shown during the 1949 Motorama and was placed onto a Cadillac Sixty Special chassis. At launch, the going price was $3,496 which equates to roughly $31,000 today. Remembered for the sharp tailfins added to the model, the DeVille is easily distinguishable on the road. As the generations developed, the styling choices calmed by a little bit and became far smoother than before.   Over the years, the DeVille has switched between being Cadillac’s mainstream vehicle to just another vehicle in the line. With that said, it was the largest model in Cadillac’s lineup during its final year in 2005, before being renamed to the Cadillac DTS. Even though the DeVille is no longer in production, the earliest models with the unique tailfins are rare finds that many attempt to add to their garage!
