This is more than just a beautiful 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe with glittering chrome and shimmering modern paint. You're looking a bumper-to-bumper unique build/restoration that includes a full custom interior, a huge V8, adjustable air ride suspension, and an upgraded chassis. In other words, it's the custom classic that's in a class all by itself.
There was an estimated $300,000 spent to get a total package that looks this amazing. And the best part is this Caddy loves to show off these big investments from every angle. Let's start with the first impression. When you see this coupe coming down the road, the ruby-like appearance of the deep metallic red lets you know instantly that this is something special. It's the product of a very professional application of a modern color and plenty of shiny clearcoat. And as the car comes into full view, you really start to see how the full build is a one-of-a-kind. Six inches were taken out of the roofline, and the b-pillar was removed to give it a smooth DeVille style look. That kicks off a more modern appearance that's complemented by frenched headlights, a one-piece windshield, sport mirrors, and shaved door handles. Plus, you might have noticed the trim has been expertly eliminated on the hood, fenders, and the sleek fastback trunk. But even without extra trim, this classic Caddy still has plenty of brightwork. This one has been heavily invested in to make sure it has a butter-smooth reflection on the form-fitting bumpers, wide intricate grille, and straight side trim. Plus, the 20-inch Boyd Coddington wheels neatly tucking under this creation perfectly blends its timeless shine and modern sensibilities.
Inside you see more modern upgrades mixed with classic style. And it all blends perfectly to retain a true luxury Cadillac image. Everyone gets an individual bucket seat thanks to a custom center console that runs the full length of the interior, and with only around 500 miles on this build, it all feels exceptionally fresh. Up front, this console houses the controls for all the best features, such as the air ride system, power windows, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (will need a serving to blow ideally cold again.) Plus, the Alpine AM/FM/CD/XM head unit with touchscreen interface is your gateway to Bluetooth, GPS, and the nicely integrated amplified full stereo system. From the driver's seat, you'll appreciate the details, like how the steering column was color-matched to the interior/exterior red, and the grip around the Budnik steering wheel matches the seats. Plus, while the gauges were upgraded to a cool modern Dakota Digital setup, this is still set in the classic dash with a hint of wraparound style.
When you lift the hood, this custom build looks downright futuristic with the color-matched custom cover and just a hint of polished components peeking out from this smooth and tidy setup (yes, even the pulleys are custom painted!) And when you look beyond the award-worthy style, you'll find the substance of a later-model 500 cubic-inch V8. This was the largest displacement Cadillac ever placed in their cars, and so it's the perfect way to give this custom the right power while still staying true to its brand heritage. The big V8 inhales deeply thorough an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it gives a dignified yet authoritative exhale out of the dual exhaust. The suspension was also given a major upgrade. The front has modern tubular A-arms, and the rear is a strong four-link. Plus, with the adjustable air ride suspension, you get to watch jaws drop at the car show as you lower this chopped Caddy to the ground. Out on the road, the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes means this custom classic knows how to cruise like a good Caddy should.
One-of-a-kind machines like this rarely leave their creator's hands and never stay available for long. And when this is gone, you'll likely never see another classic coupe like it. So if don't want to be like anyone else, you know this needs to be in your garage. Call today!!!
