1962 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine
The 1962 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine had to have been the ultimate sign of luxury because not only were you cruising around in a Cadillac, you had a driver. The body on this classic is very solid and painted Black with fine Gold metal flake. The roof of the car has a fresh coat of Blue metallic that really sets it off and gives it that custom look. These cars had a lot of stainless trim which you will find all in place and cleanly mounted. The large front and rear chrome bumpers are also there and have a good shine. There are a lot of windows on this classic, all of which is in good condition with a slight tint. All of the exterior electrical is working properly with the lenses nicely mounted in those cool classic fins. The car has the fender skirts mounted on both sides in the rear and can easily be added or removed. It sits on original style wheels with hubcaps which are wrapped with thin white wall tires.
If you frequent car shows we are sure you have heard the saying "if cars could talk, the stories they would tell." Well you have to think this classic Limousine has a very unique story. Most limousines were produced by outside companies who would cut and stretch cars they bought from manufacturers. According to our sources these were one of the few cars actually created in house by GM due to the smaller approximately 2 foot stretch. After being produced it was sure to have escorted around some pretty interesting people especially if it was really used at Carswell Air Force base as we suspect. You can even see footage of similar Limousines being driven around when JFK himself landed in Fort Worth. Even more interesting is the bullet hole found in the right rear bumper. We are sure creative minds could come up with all kinds of stories about this classics history but with our limited records we will just say it gives it character.
Roaring to life under the steel hood of this Caddy is a 490 V8 that was rebuilt 500 miles ago. It may not be decked out with chrome but it still runs strong. It is backed with an automatic transmission that shifts smoothly with no issues. The brakes have also just been rebuilt. With a little cosmetic work here and in the interior this car could be a hit at every car show. Or if rat rod is more your style hop in and drive it as it is!
The interior is all the original cloth with bench seats in front in rear. The headliner was just redone in Grey with new carpets also added. In true limousine style it has the driver/passenger partition which still has the original clock and ashtrays. Fold out seats are also in place. The dash is all original as well with the correct style knobs, switches, and gauges. The car has dual front and rear AC units which are both mounted but need servicing. It came from the factory with power windows which are still working properly.
This is one cool classic that is only getting more rare as time goes on. Not a lot of these were produced and even fewer are still out there.
