HERE IS A CAR THAT WAS BOUGHT BY THE SECOND OWNER IN 1976 IN CALIFORNIA AND USED AS THEIR WEDDING CAR. ORIGINALLY A BLACK CAR, AS PAINTED WHITE FOR THE WEDDING AND USED FOR TRIPS ONLY. OWNER MOVED TO ARIZONA IN 1979 AND LATER PARKED THE CAR UNDER A OWNING FOR MANY YEARS. AS A TRUCK DRIVER HE NEVER HAD THE TIME TO RESTORE THE CAR AND
I JUST ACQUIRED THE CAR AND PUT IT BACK TO DRIVING CONDITIONS WITH NEW BRAKE SYSTEM,NEW MASTER CYLINDER, EW TIRES AND SERVICED THE ENGINE TO SMOOTH OPERATING CONDITION. ENGINE RUNS GREAT NO KNOCKING OR ADVERSE NOISES AND 4 SPEED AUTO TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN SERVICED WITH NEW OIL AND SHIFTS GREAT AS A CADILLAC SHOULD.
CAR BASICALLY IS RUST FREE DUE TO DESERT CLIMATE CONDITIONS IN ARIZONA. THE ONLY BODY WORK REQUIRED IS ON THE LOWER RIGHT SIDE AS THE CAR SUFFERED A LONG SCRATCH WHEN UNLOADED FROM A NARROW U-HAUL TRAILER. UNDERNEATH THERE IS ONLY SOME LOCALIZED SURFACE RUST NORMAL ON UNDERSIDES. THE CAR HAS FACTORY UNDERCOATING FOR PROTECTION. MOSTLY THERE. YOU CAN SEE SOME PATCHES WHERE THE UNDERCOATING WAS PEELED AND THE ORIGINAL PAINT IS SHINY BLACK LACQUER.
THE PAINT WAS SANDED DOWN TO REMOVE FLAKING WHITE PAINT AND YOU CAN SEE BY THE PHOTOS THAT THE ORIGINAL BROWN FACTORY PRIMER IS MOSTLY THERE. VERY LITTLE SURFACE RUST WAS FOUND AND REMOVED. NO RUST HAS PENETRATED OR SIGNIFICANT PITTING IS PRESENT ON THE BODY.
THE ONLY BODY WORK REQUIRED IS ON THE LOWER RIGHT SIDE AS THE CAR SUFFERED A LONG SCRATCH WHEN UNLOADED FROM A NARROW U-HAUL TRAILER. (SEE PHOTOS.) FLOORS ARE SOUND AND STILL WITH ALL BENDS AND GROOVES AS ORIGINAL. SOME SMALL HOLES IN THE RIGHT FRONT FLOOR PANEL EASILY REPAIRABLE, O NEED FOR NEW PANEL.
