800 Derita Road, Ste. A
With its big V8, distinct factory color combo, and absolutely legendary tailfins, it's hard not to get excited about this 1960 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible. And this example is nicely detailed right down to the button-top presentation of the interior. So it makes for an awesome iconic cruiser.
This is often seen as the perfect year for a Caddy convertible. The iconic tailfins were toned down from their peak in '59 where the sleeker style made these classics appear a whole lot sportier. Plus, you still had the jewel-like grille, fender skirts, whitewalls, and ornate rear bumper that are all part of the legend. And it's with so many memorable elements all on one car, it's great to have this convertible looking so complete - right down to details like the factory-style wheel covers. Inverness Green was only around for a couple of years at Cadillac, but this factory-correct color just seems to capture the era perfectly with a pastel-like brightness. A quality respray gives it a beautiful gloss and radiant metallic element to let the sunshine really show off the quality of the sheet metal. And of course, it's always nice to have a convertible that glows in the daylight. This whole car has a thoughtful and premium style, right down to the dark green roof that gives this an added dose of sophistication you want in a show-worthy classic.
As much as we like the look of this with the roof in place, power down to reveal an even more impressive interior. After all, the trim tag tells us this is the factory-correct green interior. It harmonizes so well with the exterior color, and they even restored it to make sure the material is supple. The detailed door panel, loop carpeting, smooth dash pad, and fully finished trunk are all part of this exceptional style. In fact, you'll even love the details, like the clear gauges, working courtesy light, and AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. These were loaded with the best features, including power locks, power vent windows, and power seat - they will just need servicing and/or components to function again. Plus, the power windows and power convertible top mean opening up to the world is quite a simple task. And you just know this was made for cruising. The driver has a fold-down armrest for individual comfort, and the two-tone dual-spoke steering wheel feels awesome in your hands.
Cadillac's 390 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big V8 power. Just like the rest of the car, it has a classic style mixed with proper care. So it fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor. It's a strong-running powerhouse, and that makes this Caddy a nice cruiser. Plus, you have the right easy driving features, like power steering, a Hydramatic automatic transmission, and power brakes. They even gave you well-placed driver upgrades like front disc brakes and a modern treat behind the classic whitewalls.
Those bullet-like ends in the grille, razor-sharp tailfins, and plenty of length to develop those silky smooth lines - this is style for style's sake. Rolling sculpture like this is getting harder to find every day. So don't let this iconic drop-top slip away. Call now!
