History of the Z28's First 25 Years

Z28 is the most famous Chevrolet RPO code ever. No other option code has become so synonymous with high performance. Other option codes have been used for well-known packages such as Z22 and Z27, but the option names/descriptions became famous, not the RPO number.

From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and stunning example of this 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special in a beautiful custom Red color paint and with a virtually flawless and gorgeous condition original factory specs Light Gray All Wool Mohave Broadcloth throughout with biscuit pattern seats with deep recessed buttons trim interior, winged hood mascot, wide angles gold V in the center of the hood and trunk lip and fully loaded with rare and highly desirable factory specifications and options including:power steering,power brakes,power windows including front vent windows,posture control power 6-way front seat,power locks,factory air conditioning,heater and ventilation system,radio with rear speaker,autronic eye headlight dimmer,fog lamps,remote control trunk lid,E-Z glass,original spare wheel and jack,full fender skirts,broad chrome sill moldings & wide band moldings around the rear windows,lighted ash trays (never used it would seem!)rare full width slide down sun visors,and its original 365/310HP V8 engine!Theres no better example of GMs styling and engineering prowess than the 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special - drive one like this particular example and you will see why - its hard to believe that this car was built over 63 years ago! The 1958 model year brought a heavier and bulkier design from the previous years model and was not greatly changed engineering wise but was vastly updated outside. In typical fifties fashion the Cadillacs were given an annual facelift. All new quad headlamps and more chrome, including large chrome bumpers with the grille now outstretched to nearly full car length! A unique and classic design that has stood the test of time! The top-of-the-line Eldorados and Series 60 Special Fleetwood models added lower rear quarter panel stainless trim and another strip of stainless running from the headlamps back to the midpoint of the car. The rear wheel opening fender skirts were another Series 60 Special Fleetwood exclusive. Also exclusive to this model were lower rear quarter panels covered in stainless steel, horizontally ribbed on the 60 Special. Interiors were more lavish than ever with thickly padded seats & side panels and the instrument panel continued in its chrome laden horizontal theme.The frame was stiffer which allowed Cadillac to lower the car by 3 inches. The 365 V8 had redesigned cylinder heads with higher compression and the Sixty Special again was sized between the Series 62 and the Series 75 limos. The Sixty Special cost upwards of $6K and was one of the highest priced cars of its day - and with good reason - fifties excess had virtually reached its peak with Cadillac boasting bigger cars with more chrome and larger fins than ever before! These cars bristled with the latest in modern appointments and had few rivals in the luxury market with a recession making owning one only for the very privileged elite. These cars could be ordered with the new industry experimentation of air suspension which this car was not, many ordered were actually later changed back to the standard coil springs. Coil springs were standard in the rear as well.Originally purchased by an original southern California owner whose Los Angeles based family had for generations owned significant land and cattle ranches throughout California since the gold rush, including what is today the largest state park in Northern California at over 80,000 acres! Recently purchased from its long-time southern California collector owner and an obviously flawlessly maintained & always garaged and superbly kept museum/collector piece. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely original, solid and rust-free and the car was obviously an always cherished Garage Queen and part of a renown collection. The car has one very gorgeous custom Red/Blue/Magenta single stage acrylic lacquer color paint job (with the paint mix alone costing well over $1K) matched to a virtually flawless and no expense spared original Light Gray All Wool Mohave Broadcloth throughout with button pattern seats trim interior with no seams in the welting as would be factory correct and with a matching headliner and carpets all of which are in as new condition throughout. All the chrome has been re-chromed and any new component used was NOS including all belts and hoses and the car has a thick file of service records documenting its recent years service history.The 365 4 barrel V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for its money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car is an absolute pleasure to drive! The car has always been well maintained and only recently had a full service and tune up. All the options work as they should including all the power options, the power windows, power seats and the factory air conditioning! The car boasts its original spare wheel and jack in the truck & a rare full width slide down interior sun visor!This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity to own one simply superb and extraordinary example of a 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special in both phenomenal driving and looking condition and with almost every possible factory available option installed! The car won a recent 2017 A.A.C.A FIRST place award in the National Spring Meet in Palm Springs, CA and an A.A.C.A. SENIOR place award in the National Spring Meet in Tucson, AZ the following year.
