Beautiful chrome, beautiful paint, beautifully fitting panels ending tailfins... this 1962 Cadillac Series 62 convertible has been restored to make sure it represents the best of an icon. It makes for the kind of drop-top that people remember long after you pull away.
The tailfin was arguably in its most artistic era on this Caddy. They looked less like individual rockets, and more like a part of an integral design. You can see how the fins on the top are almost mimicked in the rockers. It's developed over a long and crisp profile to deliver a look that's both purposeful and premium. That's why a car like this gets treated with proper respect and gets a proper restoration investment. So the factory-correct Olympic White can pass the white glove test today. And the body is exceptionally detailed with well-fitting doors and fender skirts so that the lines seem almost unbroken over the whole car. Plus, the white convertible top and whitewall tires look so good against the paint, we'd almost call this car triple-white. Of course, it's also the brightwork that makes these a legend. The artful front bumper shines like a mirror, the full trim package is complete, the wire wheels are intricately bright, and the rear radiates as it fits into the overall design. It all makes for the kind of car that can define an era.
While we like the all-white look of this one with the top on, there's an even more attractive look when you power the roof down. The red interior almost seems to radiate from within the white exterior, and it all makes for a very vintage premium tone. This classic upper-class feeling also comes from the condition of the carpeting, upholstery, and all the other well-done fundamentals. As a classic Cadillac, you have some nice features, like power windows and air conditioning. And this one even has some nice little details, like the working courtesy lights and a set of matched luggage in the trunk. But what we really like is how this one is set up to be a true cruiser. The radio was upgraded to a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner for better driving music. And not only do you rarely see these Caddys with front bucket seats, but they even individually power adjust to the ideal comfort position.
Cadillac's 390 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big V8 power. This appears just as vintage and well-presented as the rest of the car. So what that really means is they made the right investments to keep this V8 a strong-runner. There's also power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and front discs. So the overall package is a solid and smooth cruiser.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a rolling icon that's truly worthy of its status. So if you've been looking for the Cadillac of your dreams, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
