1959 Cadillac Other Eureka Combination VehicleUp for purchase is a very rare and unique vehicle. The history of the Eureka company's production of professional vehiclesis impressive. Their reputation for quality craftsmanshipand advancements in design are obvious when comparing them to the other makers of commercial vehicles of the time.
I am listing this Eureka at this point of the Restoration solely because someone may want to personalize the vehicle from this pointforward in the restoration, r maybe take it in a direction otherthen restoration to original condition, sI was headed. This car will betoovaluable when completed for it notto be just as the new ownerdesires.
Now About The Car:
The body hasbeen stripped to bare metal. New metal welded in as needed (mainly floor and rocker repair) and coated with self etching primer. Then epoxy primer and abase coat covered with multiple coats ofclear.The paint job was then wet sanded and buffed to a beautiful luster. Frame and undercarriage was cleaned and painted in asatin black chassispaint.Underside body panels and floorswere undercoated.
Drivetrain has been totally gone through as well. The 1959 390 motor has been bored, he crank ground, ll new internals (oil pump, iming, tc.) heads redone, arb rebuilt, ou know the drill. The water pump is new, enerator and starter rebuilt, adiator tested, nd the list goes on, ut you get the picture.Brakes are all new from the master cylinder to the wheel cylinders, ncludingall lines, hoes, nd hardware.New hoses and belts will be installed but were not in place at the time of the pictures.
The Eureka was not an A/C car, ut I purchased a 59 parts car thatwas equipped withthe factory A/C setup, nd installed it on the Eureka just as if it had been a factory A/C car from the start.All underhood, nderfender, nderdash parts and duct workand wiring along with the A/C dash and controls and vents were also installed. It appears factory stock, s it should.
Interior is finished in white and black and chrome. Dash is an original 59and looks very nice. Steering wheel looks very nice in white and black. White leather front seat is also an original and presents very nicely. Front passenger compartment just needs door panels finished and carpet to complete, ut they should match the rest of the interior, nd this is the point of the restoration that theinteriorcan bepersonalized any way desired.
That's it in a nut shell. If you have any questions please ask. If you want to come see the car we can set up an appointment.
You can take delivery as it sits and is described, r we can negotiatecompletion ofthe car anyway you wish. Restore it to it's original glory, uild a Ghostbuster tribute car, r with the next Ghostbuster movie having an all female cast, inish it as a Pink Ghostbuster car and set a new precedent (Hollywood are you listening?).
If your looking for a great investment look no further. Finish it now, r put it away for completionlater. Bid to own. I'm flexible on storage till you take possession. I can help with loading, nd preparing it for shippingcause it will bepacked full of extra trim.If I don't sell this car I will proceed with therestoration and market it again when it's complete.
Thanks for looking.
