Description
 
One of 6,400 Golden Anniversary Cadillac Series 62 convertibles! Formerly owned by Wynonna Judd! Power steering, brakes, windows and signal-seeking radio! Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1952! Great investment! Cadillac Automobile Company celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 1952, and as such, all vehicles produced were considered Golden Anniversary Cadillacs! No significant changes to the body style were made, and some 7 models were produced. Changes under the hood did include an upgrade to the Rochester 4-Jet downdraft carburetion and intake design that increased power an incredible 30 horsepower bringing total output to 190hp! A very sporty convertible hit the streets with a 126 wheelbase, and a hefty sticker price of $4,110. Only 6,400 would be made making them exceptionally rare to find on the market today! We couldnt be more excited to offer this splendid 1952 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe finished in factory code correct Black (1) with Red Leather interior (53) and Black Stayfast canvas convertible top! It remains all numbers matching with original 331ci V8 under the hood, Dual Range Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, and 3.31 geared rear axle. Options include power steering, power brakes, hydraulically-operated power windows & convertible top, chrome 15 wire spoke wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich Silvertown 8.20x15 Poly-4 wide whitewall tires, Selector signal-seeking AM radio, fender skirts, vent window wings, door handle paint protectors, bumper guards, passenger visor vanity mirrors, dual outside mirrors, and more! This particular example comes with a wonderful past history that included celebrity ownership by country music star Wynonna Judd! She came to ownership of this vehicle in 1994 after finding it in California. She was deep into her 2-year solo career with two albums providing several top ten hits at the time and this Cadillac was sent for a full, frame-off restoration in Beverly Hills by Classic Auto Engineering. The results, now pushing 20 years old, still prove to be outstanding! The paint application was obviously completed professionally remaining super smooth and providing a near mirror-like reflection on all surfaces! The chrome and bright work are all in excellent condition. Inside the front, driver seat is showing some mirror leather wear on the bottom along with some patina around the power window switches, but very little can be critiqued otherwise! It continues to start, run, and drive down the road with utter ease after the drivetrain was fully overhauled. It shifts super smooth and can handle highway speeds all day long! The original AM radio continues to work properly, and well as all power features. Wynonna used the car in her highly anticipated 1996 wedding where she featured the car in her wedding pictures and honeymoon travel. She later sold the car to the most recent California owners in June 2002. The odometer today reads only 79,934 miles, of which we can document approximately 10k miles driven over the past 14 years. Included with this vehicle will be a matching spare tire, original jack, wrench, in a nicely detailed trunk. The under hood presentation is also very sharp with original, matching engine and chassis VIN stamp clearly visible. To document the ownership history, this example retains 1952 California registration plates, copies of the Wynonna Judd title & receipts once registered in Nashville, TN, signed bill of sale when it sold on to former California owners, a host of Wynonna signed memorabilia, and current California title. This represents a terrific opportunity for any Cadillac enthusiast and collector alike! Please feel free to call with additional questions, or to schedule a chance to review this convertible coupe in person. We look forward to working with you!
