Description

1948 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible

Restored

Dark green metallic with beige leather interior

Top condition

Led by designer Frank Hershey, the design of the 1948 Cadillac was inspired by the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, a fighter plane with twin tails. This made the '48 Cadillac the trendsetter for tail fins on cars. All American car manufacturers followed Cadillac in that regard and even European car brands participated in the tail wing trend! Furthermore, it is a very elegant and timeless design; a trueclassic!

 

This beautiful 1948 Cadillac Convertible was delivered new in New York and in Europe since the 1980s. In excellent, restored condition with beautiful paint, chrome and trim. The “Tan” leather interior is nice and is a tasteful combination with the dark green exterior. Equipped with the original 'numbers matching' Flathead V-8 and Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. This Cadillac runs so beautifully, starts easily and drives excellently. Options include; Hydra-Matic transmission, Special steering wheel, Power windows, top and seat, Radio, Sombrero wheel covers, Back-up light and Fog lights. The 'Hydro-Lectric' system functions perfectly (central oil pump that operates the windows, bench and convertible top). The convertible top is made of light brown fabric with a glass rear window. The rims are powder coated and fitted with new radial “Wide White Wall” tires. A beautiful historical piece that clearly demonstrates Cadillac's post-war leadership, truly “The Standard of the World”. Dutch registration.
