1948 Cadillac Convertible Series 62 2-Door

1948 Cadillac Convertible Series 62 2-Door This Cadillac had the same owner for the last 35 years. He was a very avid car collector and a racing enthusiast. During the time he had it, his Cadillac had an older frame off restoration that has held up remarkably well. When the car was restored, t was painted in lacquer. There is no breakdown or deterioration of the paint. It shines very well and has some very minor nicks and scratches. The chrome and stainless are excellent and nearly show quality. The glass is all intact and in good condition. The spotlight and mirrors have Cadillac script. The convertible top is in excellent mechanical condition but is showing its age. It has some stains in both rear sections but has no rips or holes, nd the rear window is clear. And the boot is in good shape as well. The interior is fitted with beautiful leather seats and still has the original burl walnut simulated dash and garnish moldings. The garnish molding on the driver side shows some wear from use. The power windows, ower seat, potlight, auges, nd lights all work. However, he radio is not operational. Underneath, he floor pans and trunk pans are nice and solid with no signs of patching or repair. Please see pictures. This car is a real pleasure to drive.The engine and transmission function beautifully. The engine holds oil pressure and has no overheating problems. It shifts good, teers perfectly, nd has plenty of pep for its size. This car has had some excellent modifications that preserve the classic Cadillac look but allow it to be driven like a modern car. In conversations with the previous owner, lot of time and effort were needed to acquire the period correct speed equipment like the Edmunds aluminum finned heads and the Edmunds dual carb intake manifold. The engine has an extensive amount of chrome work including the oil filter, ll the gas and vacuum lines, nd both carburetors. The suspension was also modified using period correct spindles with a 2-inch drop and lowering blocks in the rear. Rack-and-pinion power steering was also added with a late model power steering pump that is is neatly concealed. All of these modifications were tastefully done and really enhance the performance and appearance of the car. Another good thing about this Cadillac is if you are not satisfied with any of the modifications that were made, ou can change it back. We have the original heads, riginal intake, riginal carb and air cleaner, nd spindles. Being a purist myself, t’s good to have the option, ut the way this car looks and handles is not offensive in any way. It’s all positive. Please see pictures. Clean title.
