Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

1940 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Sedan As the premier builder of luxury motorcars around the world for over 100 years, the Cadillac name is recognized as the best in American luxury. Starting in 1902, Cadillac has built solid and reliable cars that were not only dependable, but also were some of the most opulent and luxurious on the road. Quite simply; for top down motoring in 1940, it didnt get any better than in a Cadillac. For sale is a nice condition Cadillac that was the recipient of an earlier restoration, that still bodes well for today. Some patina, and faults are there, but we have a very fine example of the wonderful design when a Cadillac was in its heyday. Exterior Offered here in Cadillacs dark Antoinette Blue is this 1940 Series 62 Convertible that wears an older restoration that has been well-cared for. The year 1940 was the last for side mounted spare tires on a Cadillac and this one even has its factory steel covers intact. Running boards were going in the way of the dinosaur, but were still, available as a no-cost option. This Series 62 is from the noted Joel Adelstein collection of fine cars and directly reflects, both the taste and depth of his collection. A camel canvas top is intact and showing a few areas of slight wear at the joints. Chrome and brite work is in good condition, as are all steel panels. Interior A very comfortable gray leather bench seat reaches out from door panel to door panel which present nicely and are wrapped in gray as well. The simple dark Antionette Blue painted metal dash is adorned with plenty of Art Deco styled chrome accents, and clean gauges. The styling reminds this writer of a chromed version of an old Wurlitzer juke box. A very nice cream steering column reaches out from under the dash and has a beautiful banjo style chrome and cream bakelite steering wheel atop said column. A cream Cadillac factory heater hangs below the dash. The rear bench affords plenty of legroom, and sports individual back cushions with a fold down center armrest. Drivetrain 346cis with overhead valves in a V8 formatted engine, rated at 135 horsepower, sits comfortably under the massively long hood. A three-speed selective synchromesh manual transmission puts power to the back wheels, and for that cloud like ride we see independent front axle with coil springs, Hotchkiss semi-floating rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes, all wrapped up within a 129-inch wheelbase. Undercarriage Showing slight surface rust, but otherwise structurally sound, and in very nicely preserved condition. The Cadillac name has always carried an aura of prestige and this Series 62, with its immense length and fine condition makes it a car worthy of any collection. For the very best in a Cadillac luxury from a bygone era, this Series 62 Convertible Sedan is a car that can hold the whole family and is ready for the open road.
