GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND SPECIAL FEATURES
Outside there’s fresh paint, nside a new cotton candy and vanilla ice cream interior. It’s a Sedan de Ville -- already a step up from the Series 62, ith finer interior trim and power features in addition to the standard dual Hydra-Matic (upgraded version): power brakes, ower steering, ack-up lamps, indshield wipers, wo-speed wipers, heel discs, utside rearview mirror, anity mirror, il filter, ower windows, nd two-way power seats.
But this example also boasts the following options:
• Power door locks
• Power trunk opening and locking
• Wonderbar® signal-seeking radio
• Factory Cruise Control
• Factory air conditioning.
The 390 cu. inch Cadillac V8 starts up quickly and has plenty of pep. The car runs and stops as it should, teers and tracks nicely. I do not detect any cooling system problems. The carburetor was recently partially rebuilt. The brake lights and turn signals and lights work as they should, nd the horn works too (but is a bit weak).
The transmission needs to warm up a bit after not having been driven awhile, ut operates perfectly thereafter. Three of the four windows go up and down more or less as they should; one back window needs help to go up, nd both rear windows (which travel a curved, omewhat awkward path) should perhaps be removed and reconditioned in order to work as they’re supposed to. The radio and the Cruise Control do not work. The factory air conditioning engages and blows cold air, hough it may need a recharge soon
Exterior. The body is rust-free and virtually dent-free as well. The fresh bright pink paint job is fairly new, nd while the glass and outside mouldings and weatherseals were not removed before the car was repainted, nd a few stone chips have had amateur repairs, one of this detracts from the overall quality of the paint, hich is very nice. The exterior chrome is in fair to good condition. The glass is original and shows normal wear and, n the case of the window glass, ome yellowing at the edges.
Interior. The interior chrome and stainless are in fair-to-good condition, ith the usual pits in chromed parts to be expected after fifty-seven years. The interior seat upholstery in ice-cream-white vinyl, ith pink piping and buttons, s well as the matching door panels and headlining, re practically brand new and have no tears or major stains. The pink carpeting shows some wear here and there but is otherwise in very good condition, nd included are four matching floor mats with sewn emblems in front.
New Weatherseals. Many if not all of the weather seals have just been replaced, ncluding the J‑seals, he hardtop opening seals, he center window seals, nd the trunk seal. As a result, he doors and trunk lid close solidly and tightly. New side cardboard has been installed in the trunk, ut the mat has not been replaced. (Unlike for coupes and convertibles, runk mats for sedans are not available off-the-shelf but must be custom made.)
This is a Western car that originally had black plates, nd as you would expect, here are no rust holes in any of the floors, oors, r fenders.
Tires. The tires, eaturing wide whitewalls, re in good condition and have many miles left.
