The 1955 Cadillac Series 62 convertible 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 example was sold to it's original owner on 2/23/1955 at 'Sanglier Cadillac-Oldsmobile Inc' in Bellevue Washington and was owned for many years by it's original owner with it's original Cadillac Owner's Identification card still in it's original location in the engine compartment!

The car has beautiful 'Alpine White' color paint with a beautiful recently reupholstered 'Red' leather interior which is in exceptional condition throughout. All the chrome has been very recently re-chromed and is in as new condition.
The original matching #'s 331/250HP V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for it's money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car has four good white sidewall tires and its original factory hubcaps!
