Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is pleased to present this
1951 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60. Powered by what appears to be
the 331 CID V8 it came from the factory with (the serial number on
the engine matches the VIN tag on the A-pillar), along with what
appears to be the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission that it was
born with, it's quite evident that this vintage Caddy has been well
cared for over 70 years. The engine was professionally removed &
rebuilt about 15 years ago and has only a few thousand miles on it
since. The Mexican Blue paint on this cool Fleetwood is in
remarkable condition for its age, having been resprayed about 17
years ago. The chrome is also in tip top shape and shines brightly
in the sun from every angle. During the restoration, the car was
updated with a new fuel tank, new fuel lines and pump, a new water
pump, new radiator, new coolant hoses and lines, new brakes,
conversion from 6 volts electrical system to a 12-volt system, the
carburetor was rebuilt, the automatic window mechanisms were
rebuilt, and sound deadening material was applied to the floor and
undercarriage. Its current owner also added Vintage Air to it
within the last 5 years, and a 4-wheel disc brake conversion kit is
included for the next owner to install (box in trunk). The interior
was also redone during the restoration, with a new headliner,
leather seating, and seat belts being installed. The smell of fine
leather permeates the cabin, making cruises in this behemoth a real
pleasure. If you're looking for a stylin' vintage ride to cruise
in, you'll love this one!
