The 1954 Cadillac was one of the highest priced cars of its day - and with good reason - fifties excess had virtually reached its peak with Cadillac boasting bigger cars with more chrome and larger fins than ever before! These cars bristled with the latest in modern appointments and had few rivals in the luxury market with a recession making owning one only for the very privileged elite.
This particular southern California example has been beautifully refurbished as required over the years with one quality older professional repaint in this extremely striking color and which boasts a brand new leather interior and carpet. The paint is very good and the leather interior is exemplary, the car has all original chrome, all the stainless is highly polished, the trunk has it's original lining material and the car boasts it's original factory AM radio. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas were always completely solid and rust-free.
