1959 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special

This incredible 1959 Cadillac 60 Special spent much of its life in a museum, hich is probably why the all-original interior looks so incredible. Showing just over 50,000 original miles, oaded with options, nd still carrying the ultimate in '50s fins, his is the car for the guy who knows what style is.Dover White looks awesome on the massive Cadillac, hich stretches more than 19 feet long. It's most definitely a product of the anything-goes 1950s, nd there's simply nothing else that makes a statement like the fins on the back of this big sedan. A recent re-paint gives it a sparkling presentation with ultra-straight sheetmetal with no nasty surprises hiding underneath (it really is as straight as it looks), lthough the Gotham Gold roof may have been added at that time. Then again, he special order interior might suggest this is how it has always been. Either way, ll four doors fit well, nd since this is the desirable 4-door hardtop without pillars between the doors, t has a very sleek, inished look. All the chrome and stainless trim remains in excellent condition, oo, nd that's good news given the cost of chrome restoration, specially since that grille is made up of hundreds of separate little pieces. The Soft-Ray glass looks period perfect and is a nice touch on an air-conditioned car like this.The two-tone white leather and gold cloth interior is believed to be 100% original, nd the "SO" marking on the trim tag suggests that it was a special order. The cloth inserts are durable fabric with pleats and tufted buttons, lus the original arm rests in the center of the bench seats. The futuristic wrap-around instrument panel is pure jet-age styling and the original steering wheel is two-tone with a bit of chrome for an upscale feel. With a long list of options including power windows, power front seat, nd an AM radio, lus Vintage Air A/C that was very neatly integrated into the original dash, t's a pleasure to drive regardless of the weather. There's stretch-out room for everyone, articularly in back where accommodations like this are only found in stretch limos these days. And yes, he trunk is every bit as massive as you'd expect, ith plaid mats and what might be the original spare tire.Cadillac's 390 cubic inch V8 was among the most powerful engines on the market in 1959, nd moves all 19 feet of 60 Special with east. Like the exterior, t's probably been freshened but they stuck to the original recipe. There's Cadillac Blue paint on the block itself, stock air cleaner assembly, nd even that Vintage Air A/C compressor looks period-perfect, nice touch. Power steering and brakes make it easy to wheel around in parking lots (as long as you have a spotter!) and the Hydramatic 4-speed automatic transmission is about as durable as they come. A brand new dual exhaust system gives it a muscular hum that's entirely appropriate and those years in a museum were certainly kind to the undercarriage, hich remains in outstanding condition. 15-inch steel wheels with factory hubcaps and new 235/75/15 BFGoodrich Silvertown wide whitewall radials complete a very impressive package.A big, mpressive Cadillac with monstrous fins and a bit of style. First-class travel never looked this good. Call today!
