1962 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Sedan
Classic luxury fans know to pay attention when a car like this 1962 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 sedan becomes available. Reserved only for the top elite, these always command respect. So to find one so complete and with a few nice modern upgrades makes this a true upper-echelon stunner. You instantly knew someone special was arriving when you saw one of these long-wheelbase Caddys pulling up. These Series 75 sedans had a distinct look and tall roof line that instantly conveyed opulence. In fact, the same money at the Chevy dealership in '62 could have bought a top-of-the-line trio with an Impala wagon, sport coupe, and convertible Ã¢â‚¬â€œ all with V8s. And there would have been enough left over to fill the gas tank a few times! Because of this pricing level, these Fleetwoods were sold as limousines. That means a sedan like this is the rarest Cadillac they sold with less than 700 examples made in 1962. So just imagine how many have survived to be this complete over 55 years later! The wide grille, form-fitting bumpers, rear fender skirts, and iconic tailfins Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it all shows you this example has been treated with care. The original black has been traded in a while ago. But it's hard to tell it this long sedan was anything but Woodrose Pink all its life, because all the details were covered - from the full-length side trim to the slats in the factory wheel covers. And let's face it, who doesn't love a premium pink Cadillac? The consignor states that $13k was invested in updating the interior, and we think it was money well spent. The gray leather seats with exterior-matching inserts kick off a fully coordinated package with the door panels, carpeting, headliner, trunk, and dash. The front gets plush power adjustable bucket seats with an armrest and cup holder center console. There's even an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with modern Bluetooth. But even with all these upgrades, nothing really beats the view from Cadillac's classic skinny dual spoke steering wheel. It gives you a terrific view of everything from the ultra-wide speedometer, to the power window switches at the base of the wraparound windshield. But in a car like this, the rear is just as important as the front. There is a limousine level of legroom, and it even has great vintage elements like the provisions for rear air conditioning. But just like the front seats, there's also modern conveniences, too. The custom storage cabinet, cup holders, and overhead DVD player mean this classic Caddy is still ready for a comfy road trip. Cadillac's 390 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big power. This V8 looks fantastically well presented with the blue block and valve covers hiding under the tidy black belts, hoses, and air grabber. The consignor states that the motor was rebuilt less than 700 miles ago, and the way it fires up with ease backs that up nicely. With an advertised 325 horsepower, it has the kind of legs to be strong around town and cruise at 70 MPH on the highway. Plus, with a Hydramatic transmission, new power brake booster, new rear air shocks, new universal joints, and power steering this has the right features to continue the Series 75 Fleetwood's tradition of opulence. Complete with build receipts, this is an exceptionally rare classic that we know won't stay available for long. So if you love the best Caddys, don't miss this deal. Call now!
