We know why you stopped to look at this 1959 Cadillac Series 63 Coupe DeVille... and it's the same reason plenty of folks will stop and stare when you're driving it. This is the exact year for the chrome and tailfin icon of the era. And not only is this a complete example, but it also holds a very cool secret.
When we think of classic American cruising, this is the design that comes to mind. The jewel-like grille, a hardtop profile as long as the curved horizon, whitewalls, and ornate rear bumper are all part of the legend. The crisp tailfins with dual bullet-style tailights are icons all on their own. This was a feature only available in '59. So you're immediately drawn to this example that's so complete right down to details like the factory-style wheel covers and fender skirts. Classic red has a true allure, especially with all the custom graphics work on the roof. But there's extra appeal in this coupe's history. Its factory paint code is Wood Rose Metallic, so this is a true pink Cadillac!
Inside the black interior looks great against the red (the original code is for a pink cloth and leather combo for those who love to talk about more pink Cadillac rumors.) The driver's seat is sofa comfortable, and there's a center fold-down armrest, so you can decide if you want to carry along five family and friends or have more individualized comfort. There's plenty of classic style on the dual-spoke steering wheel, complete trim, and decorative dash. Plus, as a true premium Caddy, you get some nice features, including power locks. But your favorite will undoubtedly be the power windows. They are a smooth and easy way to show off the cool hardtop profile of this icon.
Cadillac's 390 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big V8 power. This numbers-matching original unit looks fantastically well presented with the blue block and valve covers hiding under the tidy black belts, hoses, and air grabber. With an advertised 325 horsepower, it knows how to move both around town and on the highway. The dual exhaust has a nice rumble that reminds you of a classic American V8 without jeopardizing the Cadillac's luxury atmosphere. Cadillac pioneered automatic transmissions in 1941, and the unit living behind the V8 shifts smoothly and has that unique Hydramatic feel to it that suggest precision machinery at work. Plus, there have been some nice investments in the ride with recent work on the stabilizer links, shocks, and coil springs front & rear. Add in power steering and power brakes (w/discs up front), and this has the potential for an effortless classic cruiser.
This is an absolute icon that can even tell the story of a true pink Cadillac. So you know something this complete and desirable is a rare opportunity. Call now!
