1948 Cadillac Series 61 Base Additional Info:

I discovered this car in my neighbors garage after it had been parked there in 1994. I began by flushing the entire system of all fluids including the fuel tank. I rebuilt all of the wheel cylinders as well as the master cylinder and replaced the brake hoses. I had the carburetor rebuilt, and replaced the points with electronic ignition.I also replaced all of the plug wires, rotor cap and spark plugs. I removed the heads to inspect the cylinders and replaced them using OEM copper gasket's. The car needs new tires as these have flat spots on them from sitting for so long. Also some of the vacuum hoses are cracked and need to be replaced. The car runs very smooth and shifts through all the gears. This car is virtually complete with no missing parts or trim. The paint has some issues with dents and scratches but no major body damage. I found no rust in any of the panels of the car. There is some minor bubbling on several spots under the paint, but overall the paint is in very good shape.
