This 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is beautifully preserved, well-documented '59 Cadillac with great options and a lovely special order interior. Perhaps no car is more of an icon than a 1959 Cadillac. While Cadillac's last body style in the 1950s retained the look of a Cadillac, the 1959 models were vastly updated. Gone were the antiquated ""Dagmar"" bumpers, replaced with a new design that sat lower on the cars and featured integrated driving lights and turn signals .....
in oval-shaped pods. The hoods extended to the fender crowns that aligned with the chrome trim that extended down the belt line of the car. A new distinctive bullet-style grille that runs between the headlights had that classic Cadillac ""egg-crate"" flavor but with a more modern twist. Of course, the most significant update to the 1959 Cadillac occurred to the rear quarters and rear-end treatment with the addition of a pair of massive tail fins on each side that were both accented by a pair of ""bullet-style"" taillights in each fin. The '59 Cadillac rear-ends also featured a faux grille that matched the bullet-style of the grille up front. The interiors of the 1959 Cadillacs were no slouch either, exuding luxury in every facet. The upholstery was plush and roomy, the dashes were extravagant and ornate, and the options were plentiful and largely ahead of their time.
