This 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood four-door 60 Special is an almost perfect example of one of the most luxurious cars built in that era. There were only 109,651 Cadillacs built that year including all models. Of that total, only 20,000 were Fleetwood 60S models. This was the top of the line Cadillac mostly being purchased by Doctors, Lawyers, Corporate CEO's and other top professionals. Today, only 2,200 of these rare Fleetwood's remain on State auto registries, with an estimated additional 2,000 spread around in junk yards across the country.
The 1953 Model was the first of the Cadillacs to utilize the 12 volt electrical system and the one piece rear window. The engine for '53 was a 331 c.i. V8, rated at 210 HP. Transmissions were either GM Hydramatics, or Dynaflows, depending on whether the car was built before or after the big fire at the Hydramatic production facility. This car is equipped with the Dynaflow Automatic Transmission. Speedometer shows 86,325 and appears to be authentic. This fine automobile spent most of its life in a garage. Professional engine rebuild, transmission, radiator, generator, transmission cooler, new tires, glass, window regulators, window rubbers and the list of small detail parts purchased is endless.
The photos tell the story. The car drives like a Cadillac should. Smooth, quiet, and fairly quick for its age and weight. This is luxury once you sit in the couch like seats. The interior is just a perfect as the exterior. The dash board is exquisite in detail and class. The car has a clear title.
