For Sale: 1948 Cadillac Sixty Special in Port Townsend, Washington

$20,000 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

I am representing and assisting an elderly car enthusiast friend who has been a long time collector of primarily post-war American classic automobiles who desires to reduce his inventory. Some are originals in surprisingly good condition while others have had varying degrees of professional restoration. Most vehicles were purchased in the Chicago area 20 to 35 years ago and initial restorations were undertaken, if required, at that time. Most all of the vehicles were not driven but were put on display and have since been stored in ventilated, insulated dry storage. Currently all vehicles reside in dry storage in Port Townsend, Washington. Please be advised that the owner will share in reasonable transport costs. Also note that all reasonable offers will be seriously considered.

The vehicle featured in this ad is a 1948 Cadillac Sixty Special 4 door, Madeira Maroon and grey, automatic, 81,987 miles, exterior all original and interior was completely redone as per original specifications… Asking $20,000 VIN# 486230251

From Wikipedia:

Nearly every model was redesigned for 1948, including the $3,820 Sixty Special. With all-new sheet metal, but still riding an exclusive 133-inch wheelbase, the luxurious Sixty Special weighed in at 4,370 pounds shipping weight (over 4,500 pounds curb weight). Inside, electric window lifts and a two-way power bench seat were standard equipment. A clever rainbow-shaped instrument cluster which put all the gauges directly above the steering column in front of the driver was used for 1948 only, while a new curved dashboard design added to passenger roominess.
