For Sale at Auction: 1956 Cadillac Series 62 in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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
