Classic Car Overview

1959 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe Pink in the mirror on top of the hill, Its just like swallowin up a medicine pill. First thing i saw that Cadillac grille Doin a hundred and ten gallopin over that hill. Off hill curve, a downhill stretch, Me and that Cadillac neck by neck For consignment the ultimate status symbol from the end of the 50s in the form of a Cadillac Series 62 Coupe. This long and luxurious land yacht complete with massive fins, big steel slab sides, is a real cruiser, and way over what you think is status quo. Bought in 2001 at the Hershey, Pennsylvani show by a hedge fund manager then purchased in 2008 by our consignor. During his ownership the car was garage kept, shown and taken out only in nice weather. In a realm all its own...Cadillac! Exterior Keeping in true 1950s mantra the larger the chrome and fins, the more it will sell, and this car holds the record for largest fins, a record likely to never be set by an auto manufacturer ever again. Huge slab sides are drenched in Inverness Green have good gaps. A below the beltline trim spear rockets rearward and just above those history-making rear quarters are the Harley Earl magnum opus in the form of the tail fins that have never been outdone. These fins melt into the rear roll pan and a large chrome bumper takes over with an egg crate filled design in the center and jet engine like openings that hold the reverse lights. Large steel for the hood and trunk along with rear fender skirts have this car looking like its ready for blast off instead of a leisurely cruise down the boulevard. Raked and windswept glass and both ends keep the car with a nice sleek low look, all the while a white steel roof gives the car a touch of a custom look. Cadillac...a new measure of greatness! Interior A swing of the doors and more excess can be sniffed out and more eye candy is before us. The door panels have a tango going on between the green vinyl along with black and green carlisle cloth all the while chrome trimmings and accenting badging make their presence known. These trimmings are in good condition while the vinyl is showing some slight fading. Feasting our eyes on what we are about to park our posteriors on we see black and green carlisle metallic cloth centers in a tuck and roll pattern with smooth green vinyl bolsters for the front and rear benches. The upholstery is in grand condition and caresses us like a perfectly fit glove. Pastel green tubs cradle the front bench, all sitting in a black sea of beautiful clean carpeting. A futuristic styled GM dash with a central gauge speedo cluster and dual surrounding circles of encased metal controls is in front of a two toned light and dark green plastic covered steering wheel in two spoke form. Toggles in the corners of the wrap around dash are for the wiper and washer buttons all within easy reach of the pilot. The dash has climate controls, dual ash receptacles, a big glovebox, and plenty of shiny trimmings throughout. The tight headliner presents in light green and shows some prior water staining. The worlds best synonym for quality! Drivetrain Muscling open the steel long hood and we see a restored and clean engine bay with a correct 390ci V8 topped by a single 4-barrel Carter carburetor along with a new ignition coil and fuel pump. A Hydramatic 4-speed automatic transmission is attached to the back, and a 3.36 cruising rear axle is on this model. Engine bay is nicely patina covered and fairly clean but original. The choice without a compromise! Undercarriage Patina, Patina, Patina with some surface rust, and finely aged but well-kept surfaces and structure on this undercarriage. A reinforced X frame is below and attached are independent coil springs for the front ride and a 4 link with coil springs for the back. Power drum brakes are all around. Dual exhaust is on and appears like new. We do note that the right rear axle seal is leaking and needs to be addressed before any long drives are taken. Cadillac...first in the worlds esteem! Drive-ability The luxurious cruiser fired right up, and I was off like a land rocket ship on a mission. She ran swimmingly, turned about 1000 heads, and all worked well. My cohort and I did manage to take up half of the drive thru at our local McDonalds with the sheer length of this car. Now if we only had an A&W Rootbeer in the locale just to see if they kept the parking stalls the same size. Cadillac...a realm of motoring majesty! Harley Earl nailed the excess with the design of this Caddy. In this writers mind it is the best example of the Caddy bar none. Plenty of conveniences, plenty of chrome, and those tail fins with the quad rocket nose taillights on top, it just bleeds the midcentury spaceship, pushbutton, pills for meals lifestyle. An awesome example, and I may have a hot nut for this as its the year of my birth, although Im nearly as excessive but the car requires much less maintenance!
