With its big V8, cool factory color combo, and absolutely iconic
tailfins, it's hard not to get excited about this 1960 Cadillac
Series 62 Convertible.
For many, 1960 is the perfect year. The iconic tailfins were toned
down from their peak in '59 where the sleeker style made these
classics appear a whole lot sportier. Plus, you still had the
jewel-like grille, fender skirts, whitewalls, and ornate rear
bumper that are all part of the legend. And it's with so many
memorable elements all on one car, it's great to have this
convertible looking so complete - right down to details like the
factory-style wheel covers. The factory correct Olympic White is
the right kind of color you want on a white-glove Caddy, and the
upgrade to a white convertible top pairs quite nicely.
The distinct red leather interior shows all the right signs of
being original. After 60 years, it's not perfect, but since it's
only original once, it's nice to have a choice to keep it survivor
style or an upgrade. Plus, it's exceptional to find an example so
complete with all its sought-after bright trim still in place. In
fact, it looks like everything you want is still here, including
display items like the AM radio and nifty Autronic Eye. A true
Cadillac means plenty of room for family and friends, but of
course, you never need anyone else to enjoy this cruiser. The
driver has a fold-down armrest for individual comfort. And with
power windows and a power convertible top, you don't even have to
leave the driver's seat to enjoy an open air experience.
Cadillac's 390 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with
big V8 power. This appears just as honest and original as other
parts of the car. But while you'll enjoy details like the blue
block with Cadillac specific valve covers, don't forget to spot
nice more recent investment in places like the radiator hoses and
an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. It's a strong-running
powerhouse, and that makes this Caddy a nice cruiser. Plus, you
have the right easy driving features, like power steering, a
Hydramatic automatic transmission, and power brakes.
Those bullet-like ends in the grille, razor-sharp tailfins, and a
length longer than a minivan - this is style for style sake. This
is an iconic drop-top that's getting harder to find every day. So
don't let this opportunity slip away. Call today!!!
