THE ESSENTIALS

SALE PENDING TO CANADA!!  We are very proud to offer on consignment this fully restored 1959 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  This rare convertible originated from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  In 2004 it benefited from a body-off restoration from one of North America’s leading Cadillac restoration facilities, Classic Caddies in Ontario, Canada.   See their website at: http://www.classiccaddies.com/

According to the invoices and photos of the restoration, the following was performed during 2004:

  • Frame off restoration, chassis sandblasted and painted
  • Any signs of rust replaced with new metal, primed and painted
  • All brake and fuel lines replaced
  • New suspension, gas tank coated and painted
  • Front end and brake components all replaced
  • Front disc brakes added
  • All new leather and carpets
  • Painted using base coat and three coats of clear, wet sanded and polished
  • Chrome replated
  • Engine, transmission and all driveline rebuilt
  • Modern high-output air conditioning
  • All new side glass and fully rebuilt power window motors
  • New white convertible top
  • Front grills polished
  • New 3” wide white wall radial tires

This Cadillac has power windows, power seats, non-original air conditioning, power steering, brakes and conversion to front disc brakes.  It also has the Cadillac “Autonic-Eye” for automatic headlight dimming.

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.

As with all Series 62′s, this motorcar is complete with a 390 cu in (6.4 liter) V-8 with 325 h.p.   This is almost as good as it gets.  And with only about 11,000 examples produced this is a rare and gorgeous motorcar.

50′s and 60′s Cadillacs are some of the fastest appreciating and most desirable collector cars in the market today and the 1959 Cadillac with it’s distinctive and flamboyant fins is generally considered to be the Best of the Best!   The ‘Holy Grail” of Cadillacs!  It has great options!  It is in wonderful restored condition!  It is a Great color combination and is ready for your summertime cruising enjoyment!  Email me at harry@classicpromenade.com or call at +1.602.245.7200 with any questions you might have and I can help with shipping quotes, inspections and arrangements.

Interesting Fact: The Cadillac Series 62 is a full-size luxury car that was produced by General Motors for 14 years from 1940 to 1964. This vehicle had seven generations over the course of its life and was occasionally marketed as the Sixty-Two or Series Sixty-Two.   In its earliest years, the Cadillac Series 62 body resembles a sleek “torpedo” style C-body that features slant in the windshield along with a curved rear window. The original engine in the Series 62 is a 5.7-liter Monobloc V8 that outputs 135 horsepower. This model sold extremely well and accounted for 37 percent of Cadillacs sales in 1940.   Eventually, the Cadillac Series 62 went in a boxier direction for the body until the model was renamed to the Cadillac Calais for the 1965 model year. Although the Cadillac Series 62 was discontinued, it is still viewed as a class and is sought after vehicle for many car enthusiasts!
