California Car & Same Owner for Last 25 Years Extremely Clean & Rust Free Newer Correct Leeds Grain Leather Upholstery Newer Correct Convertible Top 6-Way Power Seats E-Z Eye Glass Equipped Factory A/C & Heat

MotoeXotica is ecstatic to announce our latest classic offering a stunning 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible that has spent the last 225 years with the same loving owner. Spending the majority of its’ documented life in California this extremely straight and clean Series 62 is an ideal Sunday cruiser! Launched at the height of the space race between the United States and the former USSR designer Bill Mitchell created one of the most iconic Cadillac models. With huge tailfins dual bullet taillights and jeweled grilles these Cadillac’s made a statement. The United States was leading the space race and was out performing the USSR and every other country too. Compared to the simple and agricultural cars the USSR produced in that era this Cadillac was a stark example of the difference between the feuding world powers.

Dripping in Pompeian Red this Cadillac’s paint is in immaculate condition having benefitted from a newer paint job. This car shows extremely well imperfections are a challenge to find; as the car is very straight and true. Wherever this Cadillac is driven it is sure to be the most eye catching and impressive car on the road. Most of the exterior chrome is in very good condition only showing minor signs of ageing. There are several pieces that were recently re-chromed and now look excellent on the car. Both front and rear bumpers are in very good condition with some age and pitting showing around the edges. A power white convertible top performs its’ function well and is color correct matching the data plate’s color information. Also when the convertible top is down a newer white boot cover hides the top and fits very securely. Both front and rear jeweled grilles are in good condition with minor signs of exposure to the elements. Finally the trademark dual bullet taillights are in very good condition.

Taking a step inside a recently reupholstered color and material correct interior greets the occupants. Both bench seats are covered in the correct Leeds grain leather white surrounding red inserts. A rare factory option on the front bench seat is the addition of six-way power seats which are fully operational. To compliment the seats newer color correct red carpet has been installed. Both the seats and carpet are in excellent condition and show only very minor signs of use. The dashboard is original to the car and still houses the original gauges and radio all of which are in good overall condition. Still retaining the original steering wheel and the optional E-Z Eye Glass this Cadillac was kept as original as possible. Auto-dimming bright headlights are perceived as a newer technology today but that is not the case; the E-Z Eye Glass or commonly known as the “wondering eye” performed the exact same function in 1959! All of the chrome trim pieces and accessories are in very good condition with only a few minor pieces showing some age. From the factory this Series 62 was optioned with a factory heater alongside the standard air conditioning.

Mechanically this Cadillac is a true runner being able to cruise most anywhere in comfort and style. a 390ci V8 that makes 325hp there is more than enough power to push this enormous Cadillac down the road without any hesitation. The engine bay has remained as original as possible other than a newer battery the engine nearly factory stock. Even the rare and fragile glass mason jar windshield wiper fluid bottle is in place and functioning allowing the dual-speed wipers to perform their function more efficiently. Mated to the big V8 is a hydra-matic 4-speed automatic transmission which handles the power in an effortless manner with no problems matching modern highway speeds. In order to produce Cadillac’s trademark supreme ride quality independent front coil-spring suspension and a live rear axle with leaf springs make up the suspension. Tipping the scale at nearly 2 ½ tons adequate stopping power is performed by hydraulically boosted oversized front and rear drum brakes. Wheel covers carry a turbine wheel motif and there are even vestigial ventral fins at the lower edge of each rear side passing through the fender skirts to merge into the massive rear bumper. Finally all four 5” whitewall tires tie the red and white motif together very well and are rare to find in this size and condition.

What are you waiting for? This is your chance to own Cadillacs’ road going version of a spacecraft! No other car captured the essence of the Space Race quite like the 1959 Cadillac. In addition to sharply swept and dramatically pointed fins surface development was a series of curves nacelles and character lines that could have only came from America’s Space Program at that time.
