Description

Our Serie 62 Convertible left the factory in 1951, the year after the Cunningham Le Mans team proved that a Cadillac could do more than just drive “Miss Daisy”.

Its penultimate owner purchased it in California in 1992.
Soon after, he had the convertible restored in time for the 1994 National Cadillac Club Show, where it was judged and deemed a numbers matching Senior example, listed as # 168 in the International Cadillac LaSalle Club registry.

This extensive 1994 restoration brought the car back to as-new spec: ie its original color scheme of Mist Gray (paint code 10) over a red leather interior.

The last owner of this Series 62 Convertible bought the car in 2007 and drove the car sparingly.

In 2009, some work were done on the car:
- the engine and transmission were pulled, tested, and mechanically refreshed,
- the electric and hydraulic systems were revised

Since the car has been driven a mere 400 miles since the work was completed, time enough to prove its roadability.

It is in PERFECT mecanical and cosmetical condition.
