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
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.
