1951 Cadillac Other Series 62

I have a 1951 Caddy. Series 62. 2 door hardtop. This car can be restored to original or would make a great lead sled. This is a numbers matching car with the original 331 CI engine. Car was sitting in a barn for over 30 years and the engine was locked up. I got the engine free and it is in running condition and can be driven. but. would have to be trailered home as it has not been driven any kind of distance. Full set of Coker Classic 4" wide white walls on gloss black painted 15" steel wheels. Complete new braking system including master. all brake lines. wheel cylinders and shoes. I got all the lights working except the reverse and gauge lights. Car is mostly complete. all the dash is there and original including the radio. The car has a brand new battery and is still a 6V system. Exterior of body is solid. some surface rust. BUT. floor pans DO have rust inside passenger compartment and trunk I have started sanding the surface rust on the drivers side. that is why it is black primer on door and quarter. Drivers window glass is cracked. rest of glass is solid and in ok condition. I have more parts not shown in pictures. Doors. hood and trunk all open and close perfectly. I have a 5 gallon gas can set up as a temporary gas tank because I was planning on removing the tank and having it professionally flushed. I bought the car to make a sled out of but something has come up and I will not be able to follow through with my plans at this time. I would rather see someone continue working on it. than let it sit waiting till I can get to it. I HAVE TITLE IN MY NAME. nbsp;IN MY HAND. AS A 1951 CADILLAC WITH ORIGINAL VIN! The car was finished so I could take it to the Viva Las Vegas rockabilly car show on 4/4/15. and it was a big hit with the crowd. It was one of only two 1950's caddy coupes (plenty of 4 door sedans). I trailered the car to Vegas. drove the car into the show and out again afterwards. I did not do a concourse restoration. it was just finished to drive and have fun with. Interior was finished in a cheetah fleece material which received numerous compliments and there were many pin up models taking pictures in it at the show. Most of the chrome has rust spots and/or holes in it. most of the stainless trim is in excellent condition. With a little more work. the car can be fun to drive on weekends to local car shows or it is a great candidate for a full restoration. The car is registered and titled in my name. I will NOT finance the car or hold for anybody. winning bid owns it. I do not need help selling this car. I DO NOT TAKE PAYPAL! CASH when picking up or wire transfer if you plan on shipping. BUYER ARRANGES AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING AND ALL COSTS!I reserve the right to end this auction early as the car is for sale locally.
