Cadillac was known for their style elements which characterised the 50s. The brand introduced its first model with the so-called 'tail fins' in 1948, they were inspired by the double tail of the P-38 Lightning. These iconic wings are still seen as characteristic by all car enthusiasts. In this lot we offer one of these iconic models, namely a Cadillac coupé from 1958.
The car was imported by us from Texas in 1992. You could still find real, original cars at the time. At the time we sold the car to a real enthusiast, who owned it for over 26 years. Excellent maintenance throughout the years. Some parts need to be replace including: the brake booster and master brake cylinder, brake cylinders, brakes hoses, alternator and water pump. A new exhaust system was recently fitted. In short, no expense was ever spared on the classic. In principle, it has only become more beautiful and better. Invoices related to maintenance have been kept.
It is truly beautiful. it drives well and has many original details. Incidentally, it does attract a lot of attention. Very suitable for wedding parties and galas, it has been used for that several times in the past.
Coming back to the condition of the car. It’s rock hard, it has been in the Netherlands for many years and it’s not tinkered with. You could still find these cars in the US in the early 90s. The Cadillac is largely still original. Contrary to many other Cadillacs, the interior is still in good condition. The original headliner has some stains (see picture 26). The chrome is certainly in good condition for its age. As well as all the trim, above the doors, etc. This can be seen in the pictures. There are two small dents on the trim at the height of the rear fender (see photo 21). These are easy to remove. The paintwork is older and has signs of age. In short, anyone can picture themselves driving this iconic car from the 50s.
The car can be viewed and collected in Goirle, Netherlands.
