This is a great old Cadillac. This '55 Series 62 Coupe Deville appears to wear much of the original old laquer paint. the finish is checking and chipping throughout, however the body itself is very solid. This is a dry climate Cadillac and it shows. This is a complete, running and driving project Cadillac. The exterior presents the great all original body and brightwork. The chrome will need restoration front to back, however it is in good condition. Under the hood is the 331 cubic inch Cadillac V8. Be sure to play the video of this Caddy to hear the engine. Further inspection of the engine compartment will reveal factory components such as the oil bath air cleaning and external oil filter. This is a running engine and sounds and idles smooth. The transmission shifts as well.
You can see the factory power brake setup above. We did a still video because the brakes do need some work. Our seller just wants to sell the car as is.
