The swoopy coupe design, big Caddy V8 power, and a tastefully updated A/C interior all come together to make this a 1947 Cadillac Series 61 a vintage machine that also has modern appeal.
This car is both elegance and patriotic. It's based on the pre-WWII designs because the luxury car production lines weren't even in full swing yet after the war. In fact, a premium Series 61 club coupe like this is rare with less than 7,300 produced. So how many do you think survived nearly 75 years to look this good today? These really were something special with their fastback profile and long fenders. In fact, speaking of those fenders, we love how the front ones extend into the door line. The way they close to show an almost seamless look that tells you this one has been treated with respect. The maroon paint is an update later in life, and it still retains a nice gloss. And for those who want big luster, the form-hugging grille and wraparound bumpers shine to a level that it makes sure this Caddy leaves a lasting impression. There are terrific details like the windshield sunshade, full-length white pinstriping, frenched antenna, and a new set of whitewalls.
The white exterior pinstripe not only coordinates with the whitewall tires, but also gives you a preview of the white leather interior. And with the maroon intertwined on the door panels, dash, and carpeting, this has a well-coordinated total package. This one retains nice vintage pieces like the Art Deco style dash with symmetrical layout. But you can also spot plenty of upgrades that make this a great custom cruiser. You get a nice grip from the updated steering wheel, and the custom center console houses the AM/FM digital tuner with cassette and controls for the cold-blowing R134a air conditioning.
The ultra-clean engine bay gives you a clear view to the big V8. This car was born in the era of the outstanding Cadillac OHV engine, but now it benefits from evolution. This is 472 cubic-inch version that's much larger than what was available in 1947. There's a four-barrel carburetor on top for good power, and it fires up and runs like a smooth Caddy should. The full package also has a stout/smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs. So this classic Cadillac coupe still knows how to confidently cruise in modern times.
This is history, distinction, and luxury all wrapped in a terrific classic Caddy style. So you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
