From its earliest years, Cadillac aimed for precision

This stunning example has recently been the star of the popular motoring show on The Discovery Channel, 'Wheeler Dealers' staring Edd China and Mike Brewer. The premise of the show is that Brewer and China are on a mission to save repairable classic vehicles, by repairing or otherwise improving an example of a particular make and model to a budget, then selling it to a new owner. The subject of an extensive rebuild then, this striking Cadillac has now been re-painted in new pearlescent green and white paintwork with hand painted pin-striping and gold leaf artwork. It sits on Ridetech air suspension and new whitewall tyres. The interior has also been restored with fresh trim in white with green alcantara headlining. There is so much more to add but the true impact can only really be appreciated when viewed in the flesh. Offered here at no reserve, this now famous American Classic should prove hugely popular and worth a visit alone.
