Description
 
To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auctions America's California event, July 31-2, 2014.Estimate:$ 75,000 - $ 85,000 Cadillac celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1953. The cars it presented to the market for this important milestone were emblematic of its stature as The Standard of the World. Big, luxuriously equipped, opulently trimmed and powerful, the 1953 Cadillacs deserved their position at the top of the General Motors line. These were cars to which a generation aspired. Introduced in 1949, Cadillac's big, powerful 331-cid V-8 engine had developed into a strong and reliable powerhouse. Cadillac knew then, as now, that its reputation depended as much upon performance as luxurious materials, comfortable ride and elegant styling. The Cadillac V-8 provided performance that made Cadillac the choice of any American driver who wanted to cover long distances in a short time. The 1953 Cadillacs were the triumphs of Harley Earl's design philosophy: big, flashy and distinctive. Cadillac built 85,446 cars in 1953, although less than 10-percent, only 8,367, were the exclusive Series 62 convertible. Upholstered in leather, it was the ultimate statement of the success, confidence and rising aspirations of the Fifties. This tried and true example was purchased by its current owner in the 1980s. It was restored mechanically at that time and was used as a daily driver around Los Angeles for many years. He later retired it from daily driving and began the restoration that it currently shows. The restoration was completed to original factory specifications. It is reported to be an excellent driving example that is sure to be a perfect weekend cruiser.
