1961 Cadillac Convertible Series 62 is in great driver condition. It is a true black plate California Car. It has the modern power conveniences like air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power seat, and modernized power front disc brakes with NEW radial white wall tires. It has a 390 cubic inch 325 horsepower REBUILT ENGINE ( November 2015 ) , REBUILT ( November 2014 ) 4 Speed automatic transmission, REBUILT rear suspension (October 2015).
Convertible power top works great, and it's a real pleasure to feel the open
air while you cruise the highway in this classic beauty.
The paint is older but shines great. There are some chips and little touch up spots, as well as some little bubbles on the rockers. But the underside of the rockers are solid metal as you can see in the pictures. The body is very solid. I would classify
this car's condition as a mechanically great driver, and a good cosmetic driver. The body is straight, with
good gaps and some minor touch ups here and there. The body is a solid
metal body that is not full of bondo etc.. Most of the chrome is bright and looks good, but there are a couple of pieces like the rear bumper corner piece on the driver's side that the could use a rechroming at some point. See pictures below. Pop open the hood and check out the engine bay. You'll
find it's very detailed and clean. A lot of mechanical work has been done on this car. Lots of replaced bushings and other items as needed. It is a very maintained car used for around town and one week long out of town cruses. The 390 engine makes
great power and sounds nice and quiet through the exhaust. The transmission shifts smoothly into gear and works exactly as
it should like it has been treated well it's entire life. And don't forget the transmission was just rebuilt (Nov. 2014 ) The car has a
nice balance of power and being an ultimate around town or long range cruiser. Plenty of trunk space! Even with the spare tire. Front power disc brakes and power steering will make you feel in control at any speed.
The low mile white wall modern radial tires with a vintage look
t are almost new and fitted to spoke wheels. We also have the original steel wheels in boxes. The weather stripping still seals everything up. All the doors close in a snug and sealed fashion, latching correctly. All the doors and trunk lock correctly. Thedoor
sills are in very nice shape. All gauges work properly, and light up at night as they should. The high and low beam headlights work as well as the indicator for them on the gauge cluster. The running lights, turn signals, and brake lights also work. The electric windows go up and down effortlessly. Perfect for cruising up and
down the Pacific Coast Highway or just about anywhere!
Drivers Seat Bracket modification: We modified the brackets for the driver's seat because the original seat never really moved back far from the factory. You would think a Caddy would be for a big guy.. but full sized men are jammed up close to the steering wheel. Not fun, comfortable or cool looking. So we moved the seat back for the previous owner who was / is a customer who owned the car. So we have years of history on this car first servicing it around 2006. Lots of work has been done over the years to make it the great driver it is now. Now when a 6'4" 200 - 250 pound man sits in the front seat, you are stretched out and comfortable as you should be, and the power seat will still slide forward for around 5 foot tall person still. There are 2 seat belts in the front, and 3 in the back seat.
are some imperfections on this car, and we've gone over this car with a
fine tooth comb and will detail them here for you. There are some paint
chips on the rear trunk and a tiny tiny ding next to the trunk lock, a couple of chips on the hood have been touched up.There are some rust bubbles on the rockers, but the underside of the rockers are still very solid original metal. The interior in in good condition, but the older seats show some wear with scuffs, color splotches, and a couple of small tears. These are minor cosmetic imperfections and in no way affect the
operation of this car. Some of the chrome on the bumpers show some wear also, see pics.
