One of 1955s most anticipated models was the Series 62 Coupe DeVille. It revealed the full scope of Cadillac’s styling artistry. This distinctive model perfectly combined period safety of a closed car with all of the wondrous spirit of a convertible.
This beautifully restored Coupe DeVille is reported to be revitalized in a quality fashion and is presented in Cadillac later model White Diamond pearlescent paint with green top and a complementary and similarly toned interior. The original 331-cid V-8 engine has experienced a “high-end rebuild” and is paired with an automatic transmission that is also rebuilt – as is the rear end and brakes.
All of the chrome has been redone and the lovely paint has been water sanded and polished with base coat and clear coat. The car is reported with an “all-new interior, complete with finished trunk in matching colors. All systems are stated to work properly; this includes the drivetrain, power seat, power antenna, new stereo, backup lights, clock, power windows, power steering and power brakes. The optional cowl area spotlights are also operable as expected. The fabulous style is topped-off with rear fender skirts, BFGoodrich Silvertown wide whitewall tires and 1957 Cadillac hubcaps. The new exhaust system is said to resonate with the “perfect note.” 1955 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
