For Sale: 1961 Cadillac Convertible in Phoenix, Arizona


Vehicle Description

This old 1961 Cadillac convertible was given to a lady in Tucson by her husband when new. In 1973 she had an affair with her neighbor, his wife found out and in jalousy she broke every piece of glass on the Cadillac.

The Cadillac sat for 40+ years and it was never repaired or driven after that and the original mileage of 18,255 is what it had 44 years ago and it still does.

We bought the car from the daughter after her mom passed away a few years ago and she told me the history of the car. We replaced the broken windows and checked and lubed the PW mechanism at the same time..

After the years of storage here in Southern Arizona we also had to replace the floor of the car, it was professionally done and we used an original floor out of a rust free Arizona parts car, no China made panels. We replaced a few other panels at the same time. The pictures were taken when I bought the Cadillac years ago and the rust you see is not there anymore, except for surface rust.

I was always planning on redoing the Cadillac and keep it, I love 1961 Cadillac's but with our restoration shop still full of projects after all these years, and let's face it, I'm getting up there in age I decided to put the Cadillac up for sale.

The seat frames have been rebuilt, painted and re-foamed but they have not been covered (I have not decided on colors yet). The car is stored in our restoration shop in down town Phoenix.
