Cadillac emerged as the leader in the post WWII U.S. Luxury car bracket on the heels of a full redesign for 1948 models. A year later, a new overhead valve 331ci V8 was put into production; capable of 160hp! Praise for the new post-war Cadillac was literally universal, with Britain's The Motor declaring the car offers astonish value for the money. It has performance which few makes can river, even fewer surpass, a general silence of running which many will consider unbeaten, and an ease in driving. Motor Trend magazine was also smitten with the new 1949 model Cadillacs; so much in fact that it became their very first car to be awarded their Car of the Year.

The 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Fiesta Ivory over rich brown interior and matching brown convertible top. This particular example hails from many years of long term ownership and has been meticulously restored to an incredibly high standard. Over $150,000 was invested in the restoration; insuring that this classic Cadillac performs as well as it presents. Accompanying documentation dates back as far as 1953 when the car was less than 5 years old, and this iconic American convertible will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are proud to offer this stunning 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the performance and style that for so many years proved Cadillac to be the standard of the world.
