The first Cadillac to return to production after World War II, the Series 62 was meant to be driven and enjoyed. And, with its accentuated tail fins, liberal chrome work and distinctive bullet-style headlights, the 1962 version is truly iconic. In fact, Car Life magazine touted the 1960 Cadillac as “the best buy in the luxury field.”
This striking Cadillac reportedly spent most of its life on display at the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. It was originally white with a red interior, but its professional paint job shows no signs of a color change. The Hard Rock wanted red on red, so this was their immediate solution. The paint is flawless, and the red leather is fantastic. To enhance its sleek style even further, the chrome is bright and impeccable.
One of the highest-priced cars of its era, this sporty Cadillac is equipped with most of the prized options you might see on one of its convertibles. It features air conditioning and full-power accessories: top, windows, seat, steering and brakes. Also included is an AM radio, heater, Autronic Eye headlight dimmer system.
This distinctive vehicle rides on Truespoke wire wheels adorned with American Classic radial tires. And as testament to its continued care, it recently underwent a complete tune-up with all fluids changed.
Equipped with a 345 hp, 390 cubic inch engine, this 4-speed automatic accelerates smoothly and glides effortlessly down the road. This car will cruise down the road at any speed desired and would be welcome at any show.
It is very rare to see a red on red 59 thru 62 Cadillac these days. The tail fins made this car very recognizable. It is as comfortable as can be and that extra flash makes onlookers stop in their tracks. The next caretaker of this luxurious car will enjoy this to the fullest and it sure to put a smile on the owner’s face.
