Vehicle Description

Cadillacs were truly the envy of the elite when this 1957 Series 62 sedan was built. Luxury, style, and big V8 power made them unquestionably "The Standard of the World." Today, they still carry a legendary reputation, and if you're the sort who likes traditional American luxury and flair, this really gets your heart pumping.

Cadillacs of this era are a true exercise in style. Everything from the gold trim leading the way in front, to the gas cap hidden behind a flip-up taillight are designed to make every other driver jealous. And because these are the kinds of cars designed to get noticed, you have to love this paint. The Bahama Blue has the right pastel-like tone for a 1950s machine, and there's a metallic element to really let it radiate in the sunshine. And of course, the best classic Caddys are built to showcase stylish chrome. That's why the hood forms around the outstretched bumpers, the rear trim line doesn't stop until it merges with the rear lights, and the exhaust is integrated into the rear bumper. And everything from the pillarless hardtop profile to the tailfins deliver the best in classic American style.

There is more sea-like blue on the inside, and the white trim fits in like the crest of an ocean wave. Two wide bench seats provide better comfort than a pillow-top mattress, and the legroom is expansive front and rear. Matching door panels, good carpeting, and classic bright trim give it a cosmopolitan air that suggests an artist at work here. There are classic luxury features like the power windows and power front seat. Plus, this has been upgraded with a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and hidden upgraded speakers, and so you have well-integrated modern driving music. Jet-age styling dominates the instrument panel and steering wheel, and so it truly feels like vintage motoring the moment you get in the driver's seat.

Cadillac's 365 cubic-inch V8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor on top was the icon of the industry. General Motors was only beginning to spread V8s to the rest of its family of cars during this era. So, Cadillac still reigned supreme with this big motor that carried nearly one-third larger displacement than anything that was available at Chevrolet. But while Chevy was beginning the business of hot rodding, Cadillac's cubic-inches were utilized to make sure comfort was achieved at every speed. The engine bay appears to stock and correct, with Cadillac Blue paint giving this a stylish tone in the dark engine bay. This comes with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and modern tires.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a bright and rolling icon at a value price. Call today!!!
