Estimate:
€40,000 - €60,000

  • Restored in stately Fiesta Ivory over tan
  • Accompanied by a copy of its original build sheet


After introducing all-new bodies in 1948, Cadillac announced two more surprises in 1949: a high-compression overhead valve V-8 engine and a new Coupe DeVille. For customers looking for an open-air experience, there was only the Series 62 Convertible Coupe.

Nicely restored in its original colour of Fiesta Ivory, this Cadillac convertible has a black canvas hood and tan leather upholstery, having originally been trimmed in green leather. Equipped with Hydra-Matic transmission, it was supplied new with push-button radio, automatic heater, reversing lamps, and full wheel discs. Other equipment includes a driver's-door spotlight. The car was ordered by the Cadillac distributor in Newark, New Jersey, for a dealer in Montclair, to whom it was shipped on 20 June 1949.

With 8,000 built, the Series 62 convertible was second only to the four-door sedan in sales. They seldom appear today, so this car represents an uncommon opportunity.



  • Restaurado num imponente marfim Fiesta com interior bege

  • Acompanhado por c�pia da sua ficha de fabrico


Depois de apresentar novas carro�arias para 1948, a Cadillac anunciou mais duas surpresas em 1949: um novo motor V8 com taxa de compress�o elevada e v�lvulas � cabe�a e o novo Coupe DeVille. Para os clientes que queriam experimentar a condu��o sem capota, existia apenas o Convertible Coupe da s�rie 62.

Bem restaurado na sua cor original Marfim Fiesta, este Cadillac descapot�vel tem capota em lona preta e interior em pele bege. Originalmente estava forrado com pele verde. Equipado com a caixa de velocidades Hydra-Matic, do seu equipamento original constava ainda um r�dio com bot�es, aquecimento autom�tico, farolim de marcha-atr�s e rodas com discos de di�metro completo. Outro equipamento opcional � um pequeno holofote na porta do condutor. Foi encomendado pelo agente Cadillac em Newark, Nova J�rsia, para um comerciante de autom�veis em Montclair, para quem foi enviado a 20 de junho de 1949.

Com 8000 exemplares produzidos, o Convertible da s�rie 62 ficou apenas atr�s do sedan de quatro portas em termos de vendas. Atualmente, � pouco frequente aparecerem, pelo que este autom�vel representa uma oportunidade invulgar.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
