This 1956 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible was built by award-winning
builder Joe Peck Customs in Van Nuys, CA. After 7 years and
thousands of shop hours, this Southern California car was
completely disassembled and the frame stripped, cleaned and
repainted in a gorgeous red. A close picture of the VIN stamp in
the frame verifies the originality of the car. The body was taken
off the frame and each piece was sandblasted, prepped and painted
individually before being reassembled. The original frame was
custom-notched to perfectly accommodate the LSA V8 engine. This
no-expense-spared custom has all-new glass, new suspension
(including Wilwood brakes) and features power-steering, power
brakes and power top. The Cadillac is powered by a 556hp
supercharged LSA crate engine upgraded with a Concept One pulley
system and mated to a 6L90 6-speed automatic transmission. The
original rear end has been replaced with a Ford a 9-inch rear end
with posi-traction and 3.25 running gears. All four corners have
adjustable RideTech shocks, with 2-inch drop spindles in front.
Rick's Gas Tanks built a custom stainless-steel tank with a vapor
works fuel control system. A polished Mattson's radiator and
intercooler system keep the supercharged engine cool. The car rides
on 17-inch Wheel Smith Cadillac Wire Wheels wrapped in Diamondback
red line tires. The custom interior was built by award-winning
specialist Albert Lara from North Hollywood, CA. The steering wheel
was restored by repouring the plastic into an original mold for a
1956 Cadillac steering wheel. All of the original chrome and
stainless pieces were straightened, dipped and polished by ABG
Polish in Southern California. ** PREVIEW
