1949 Cadillac Other
The '49 year of Cadillacs is a very collectible year due to the introduction of the Kettering overhead valve engine and push button start on the dashboard. This one is a beauty and a joy to drive. Because of the elegantblack PPG finish and extra Series 62 chrome rock guards androcker panels,it is a real head-turner. These extras were recently rechromed. Not all of the photos show the added chrome.
FINISH: There is no cracking, ubbling or any signs of bondo, o chips or road wear. It shines like new. The chrome is in excellent shape except for the rear bumper corner bottoms. There is a rusted through areasthat can't be seen easily, ut the two corner bottomswill need to be rechromed. Those are the only flaws on the exterior finish.
GLASS: The wing windows have some slight delamination. The passenger wing window will not close completely, robably an easy adjustment.
UNDERCARRIAGE: The entire undercarriage has beensprayed with POR15. There is no major rust under this Caddy that I can see.
TRUNK: Trimmed in wool
INTERIOR: Beautiful grayclothon the seats and gray wool headliner, o flaws. The gray carpets are in excellent shape.
OTHER: Sombrero hub caps are original and in excellent shape. Many of the rubber pieces have been replaced where needed. Both Cadillac emblems are invery goodshape with no cracking or crazing.
DRIVEABILITY: A solid handling classic, his drives down the road straight as an arrow, oes not burnoil, nd starts well even on cold mornings because of an added electric fuel pump. Everything works, ut wipers are intermittent. No power brakes or power steering.
You will be proud to own this classy automobile and I will be sad to see it go. (I'm selling my small collection of classics since we are moving and will have no room to store them.) They made fewer Series 61s than Series 62s.
