1962 Cadillac Other Convertible Restomod Additional Info:

Of course, you're going to stop and look at a triple-black 1962 Cadillac Series 62 convertible. It's a tailfin icon. But you can also see this has a slick look of a custom machine. As you get closer, you'll start to see the huge investment in a performance big block, luxury custom A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, full custom chassis, and so much more. It's one of the most awesome all-around builds you can get your hands on... right now. This kind of black paint is better formalwear than a tuxedo. The professional application of excellent body panels gives this Cadillac the power to be a celebrity. And let's face it, we all love to see when someone has already made the proper investment of time and money keeping an icon like this looking like a superstar. After all, the acres of sheetmetal and all that brightwork are as American as apple pie. That's why we are so pleased with the overall presentation that is straight, complete, and shining like a gem right down to the so nicely integrated chrome bumpers. But you can instantly tell there's something more going on here. Those large black smoothie wheels (20/22 inches front/rear) are an awesome way to signal there are a ton of upgrades within. You have a great-looking black folding roof and a fresh black interior, giving you the ultra-desirable triple-black presentation (i.e. black paint, top, and interior.) So it makes sure this always delivers a full midnight look. The full restoration/transformation kept the comfortable attitude inside, but made it all so much more modern. As a proper Cadillac, you get leather seats - but now they are an expertly integrated setup borrowed from a modern GM vehicle. That means the front buckets have plenty of bolstering to be all-day comfortable, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal comfort setting. Plus, there are other well-integrated upgrades - from a cup holder center console, to an AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth. The power windows and power convertible top mean never having to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And cold-blowing R134a air conditioning means you can enjoy this long into the summer. More than just the ultimate in luxury, you can also tell this car was meant for driving. The B&M shifter, full Classic Instruments gauges, and vintage-style steering wheel with a smaller/sportier size hint at some nice power under the hood. The black and chrome theme of the exterior continues in the engine bay. And while you'll marvel at the cool presentation - right down to the Cadillac-etched valve covers - don't forget to check out the power. This is the mightiest of crate motors - the 502 cubic-inch V8. It has the right upgrades like a dual plenum air intake, large Holley 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. The 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission is a great modern unit that's beefy enough to handle all the power while also delivering overdrive comfort. The same stout cruising attitude is in the Strange 9-inch rear with 3.91 gears and Positraction. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll love the full Art Morrison chassis. There's tubular A-arms up front, triangulated four-link rear, and adjustable coilovers at each wheel. Plus, there's rack & pinion power steering and a CPP Hydroboost system feeding four-wheel disc brakes. Complete with build receipts, this Caddy was once a survivor-grade droptop, but now it's the ultimate cruising machine. Don't let this award-worthy package slip away. Call now!
