Classic Car Overview

1956 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe De Ville LONG-TERM COLLECTOR OWNED W/ 54K MILESHIGHLY ORIGINAL W/ ONE CONCOURS-QUALITY REFINISHRECENT MAJOR MECHANICAL SERVICE & COMPLETE DETAILGORGEOUS BLACK PAINT FINISH OVER 2-TONE INTERIOREXCEPTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE, TOP-QUALITY EXAMPLEONE OF CADILLACS MOST SUCCESSFUL 1950S MODELSINCLUDES MOST RECENT SERVICE & DETAILING INVOICES Introduced in 1949, the Cadillac Coupe de Ville was one of the first pillarless hardtop coupes produced. Based on Cadillacs stylish and popular Series 62, the Coupe de Ville and its Sedan de Ville counterpart delivered everything good in Series 62 with leading-edge hardtop body construction allowing more daring styling cues. Priced just $1 below the Series 62 Convertible Coupe, the Coupe de Ville included power window lifts and premium interior appointments. While sales were relatively low at first, they rose strongly through the 1950s, ensuring the Coupe de Villes mainstay status in the Cadillac model range for many years. By 1956, the last for Cadillacs 1954-56 styling theme, all models received subtle updates including a new rear bumper with raised oval dual exhaust outlets and a refinement of Cadillacs aircraft-inspired tailfins. Cadillacs respected OHV V-8 engine was enlarged to 365 CI and 285 horsepower, with dual carburetors and 305 HP optional. for greater power and drivability. While total Series 62 production reached about 134,500 for 1956, just 25,086 Coupe de Villes were built that year and fewer still are as nice as this long-term, collector-owned example, which has never before been offered at auction nor sold publicly.Highly original and very well maintained, this Coupe de Ville features an excellent repaint and it clearly benefits handsomely from extensive service and complete detailing performed by The Last Detail on behalf of the current owner. According to recent and detailed invoices with the vehicle, major items addressed include a full vehicle inspection, complete brake-system rebuild, a fuel-system cleaning and overhaul from the gas tank to the carburetor and fuel gauge, and steering/chassis alignment. The quality paint finish was nonetheless elevated to a higher level with a professional wet sand and polish. The interior also received our careful attention, with new window seals and surrounding cloth, plus rebuilding of the factory dash clock and fuel-level gauge. New period-style modern tires were also fitted for a great look and drive. Accompanying items include a spare wheel/tire complete with hub cap, a roadside jack and lug wrench. At the time of writing, mileage is just under 54,490 miles, believed correct. Cadillac dominated the American luxury-car market of the 1950s, and its easy to see why, with this handsome, highly original, and very well maintained 1956 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe de Ville. Featuring outstanding colors and presence, it is ready to show and of course, drive along a nice stretch of open road. Contact us today, see it for yourself, and we are confident you will agree that it is a high-quality classic Cadillac and much more than a rare survivor indeed.
