The 1961 Harley Earl designed Cadillac was a large luxurious Cadillac that could easily carry six people and featured a large 6,390 cc (390 c.i.) V8 engine with drum brakes and it was the first year Cadillac installed a dual master cylinder for the brake system as standard. The marque was discontinued in 1964. 

This is a garage kept California car with the floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas solid and with the car having no signs of any accidents. The car 390 V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and this particular car also drives absolutely magnificently - it must really be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for it's money! The transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the car has four virtually new radial wide white wall tires.

This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving example of a beautifully restored over the years only as required and rare highly factory optioned (Only some 50% of Cadillac buyers ordered factory A/C in 1961!) 1961 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible and a super striking example which is perfect car for the Cadillac enthusiast or simply a great daily driving and turn-key ready example of arguably America's premier and most prestigious brand & one very fine classic 1960's all American classic car for any classic American classic car collector!
