This 1948 Cadillac Series 62 has a wonderful personality that owns
the road. And with its correct big V8 under the hood and a very
vintage overall presentation, this example upholds the best Caddy
Cadillacs of this era are a true exercise in style. Everything from
the goddess on the hood to the gas cap hidden behind a flip-up tail
light is designed to make every other driver jealous. Of course,
everyone knows the true standout is the chrome, and one remains,
clean complete, and bright. There's just the right touch of aging,
because after all, you want this one to look like a respected elder
and not an over-restored symbol of new money. The same goes for the
paint. It was treated to a respray later in life so that the black
still has a luster that reminds you of a grand piano. But it has
the right aged-in style that will make people think this was a
family heirloom. Gentle curves in body panels, rear fender skirts,
whitewall tires, and the right hint of tailfin are all about the
true grand touring style that a car like this offered when
new...and so the admiration only grows with time.
The interior has a wonderful sense of style. It starts with the
blue and gray two-tone seats that are timelessly stylish and the
comfiest piece of furniture you'll ever own. Matching door panels,
clean carpets, and a good headliner continue the quality feel. This
has all the best features there for a display, including the AM
radio and mahogany-like painted dash and door tops. You even have
working power windows. This was a unique era where art deco was
giving way to jet-age style, and you really understand that from
the driver's seat. The design of the steering wheel and gauges is
distinct and pure vintage.
Power comes from Cadillac's famous 346 cubic-inch flathead V8 -
this was the motor they created for such durable use that it was
also a favorite for tanks in World War II. This decodes to a
year-correct motor in the highly honest engine bay, and so it's
hard to imagine this is anything but the original powerhouse still
in the car. This is a torque-filled motor that knows how to pull
this Caddy around with authority. Plus, the automatic transmission
and soft suspension are exactly what easy Caddy cruising is all
This sedan is iconic, stylish, classic, and desirable. That's why
it makes for an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
