A Gentleman's Hot Rod
For your consideration is an absolutely gorgeous example of one of General Motors most iconic and timeless creations. I call this "A Gentleman'sHot Rod" 1940 Cadillac 60 Special Fleetwood 4 dr. This Beauty has a completely stock look as from factory, like Al Capone or Dick Tracy would be rolling up in it. However, this isn'tyour Godfathers Caddy! She has been tastefully upgraded with a late 70's Cadillac front clip and drivetrain with a 472 V8, 400 Turbo Automatic Transmission, and all the creature comforts for todays driving like power disc brakes, power steering, and air condition! I know original is generally better with a "numbers matching" Flathead engine and stock running gear, but realistically in todays driving conditions, this car could literally be driven anywhere and everyday of the week!!
The Cadillac is finished in a Deep Gloss Black Paint. She shines at any angle, with much depth and gloss. Take a look at the pics, from 10 feet away you can read the print on your t-shirt! Literally a mirror finish. Restoration was completed about 17 years ago and has been lovingly enjoyed ever since, and still shows exceptionally well. To put it simply, its just super nice. I would call the car a high end driver quality vehicle. Undercarriage is very clean, straight, & finished in flat black with a light undercoat which is consistent with a factory application. It’s not all cobbled up with Auto Zone rubberized crap! Was a body on restoration. No issues. The engine bay has a gloss black finish that looks great. It just has a wow factor when you pop the hood at local cruise nights!
It rides, drives, and handles very well; straight down the road with no shimmies, shakes, or vibrations. Extremely tight and surprisingly easy to drive for what it is. I would not hesitate to get behind the wheel of this car with my family and drive it across country. She cruises at 65 MPH like a new car. Rides like a Cadillac!! A person of any size or age could drive this vehicle comfortably. All of the lights, turn signals, brakes, gauges,etc are functioning properly. Engine fires right up with no smoking, ticking, noises, etc. Has a fantastic sound with 2" Dual Exhaust - Its quiet! Car is turnkey and ready to drive anywhere. The Interior is finished nicely with Grey Cloth, and Carpet, door panels, Headliner, and all show extremely well. A ton of money and the best parts were used creating this piece.
