1960 Cadillac DeVilleThis is a 1960 Cadillac Deville Flat Top which is an interesting alternative to the bubble top you may be more familiar with. Rare find and will be different at the car shows or cruise ins. This model has a unique flat roof with a blade like appearance on the end with a very cool wrap around rear window. The original 390 cubic inch engine and 4 speed auto Jetaway Transmission have been removed and no longer available. Clear title with exempt odometer as mileage is ultimately unkown. Was originally an AC car with cruise control. Car was a running auto a few years ago with operating brakes, windows, suspension, lighting etc. It was even driven on Hot Rod Power Tour from Detroit to the midwest. Has exhaust flame thrower kit installed. The engine and trans were pulled to make way for an LS late model GM engine swap but project never really started due to time, interest and other projects taking priority. It is best to be a project for someone looking to build a rat rod or hot rod.
The good: Most of the body is straight and solid, a lot of new OPGI sheet metal & floor pans were welded in several years ago with addressing any obvious rust through in the floor or firewall. Entire cab floor was then coated with heavy POR 15 treatment then a layer of Eastwood thermo mat to control sound, vibration and heat. New Cadillac restoration parts black carpet then installed. Lots of new rubber parts for doors and body, Front bucket seats are from a Sebring Convertible which have the active shoulder belts for safety. Rear seats have shoulder belts installed as well. Most window seals to include door frame were replaced recent years too. Power window motors also replaced a few years ago. Has aftermarket modern sound stereo that fits stock radio location, Interior roof has heat mat too. Fuel sender replaced and also has an external electric fuel pump. Front & rear bumpers to include rear wheel skirts are professionally Line X covered (protective coating similiar to bed liner) which is very tough. Center drivehaft bearing and rear diff support replaced. Shocks and wheel studs replaced, Older style billet wheels which are in decent condition but could use a polish. I also have a box full of newly chromed interior trim.
The not so good: Paint is cheap flat black treatment which is chalky in appearance or chipping away, dent to drivers front wheel well area, minor rust in various places on body panels but none are huge holes, missing some exterior trim pieces. Exterior trim to include grille need restoration to look good. Interior dash ok but needs restoration to look good, No good interior door panels though I still have them they would need professional restoration too look good enough to install. Stock bench seats are available but need restoration and can be purchased additionally by buyer at additional cost.
Car is local pick up only & obviously non-running so you must bring trailer or car haulerTitle in hand and bill of sale will be complete by both seller and buyer to conclude transaction.
