Updated for 1958 with a new grille and quad headlamps, the Cadillac Series Sixty-Two Sedan De Ville was powered by a 365 cu in (6.0 litre) V8 engine allied to three-speed automatic transmission. Overseen by the legendary Harley Earl, everything from the rubber guards on the front bumpers to the chrome caps on the rear wings was styled to the max.
Imported from Colorado in 1987, ‘732 XUR’ has had just four UK keepers over the past thirty-four years. Showing 61,700 miles on the odometer, this Cadillac has benefited from an extensive brake overhaul within the last three years including the fitment of new brake shoes, master cylinders, front cylinders, brake servos and hoses. More recently in 2023 a complete new stainless steel exhaust system was fitted as well as new tyres all round. Finished in light green with white and green upholstery, this Sedan de Ville does not want for road presence! A fabulous piece of Americana, the be-finned behemoth features such niceties as power steering, power brakes and automatic transmission. The Series 62 is offered for sale with a large history file comprising the original workshop manual, Colorado State title document, numerous invoices, old MoT test certificates and a recent MoT test certificate valid until May 2024. Driven to the auction directly from the vendors private collection in the heart of Kent, this Cadillac really is an opportunity not to be missed.
