1958 Cadillac Coupe de Ville
An increasingly rare icon of the fifties
For sale a beautiful time machine, right out of 1958! This Caddy shows 91700 miles and is imported from Canada, Saskatoon. The car is very original, however I suspect it has been restored before. Initially black, but repainted dark blue with zilver rooftop. I had many parts professionally repainted as wel by "Priceless paint" in Asperen, including a silver rooftop. It looks stunning! Many of the chrome bumper parts and ornaments are newly tripple plated. The result is a beautiful and sparkling colourful car. No underlying rust issues. Very straight body and good fittings. The original, Special Order interior is redone and shows very well, very clean. Everything semi-untouched by time. Glass is what you might expect from a car from 1958, but overall still very representable and acceptable. The 5.8 liter/310 hp V8 starts good, no smoke. Idles great and has lots of power. Steering, brakes, transmission, suspension all in good condition. Some oil drips after driving from the transmission, nothing worrysome. The whitewalls are nice, with the beautiful and rare optional spokewheels. All doors open and shut good. Under the hood a rebuilt engine. Rebuilt trans. Original rebuilt Carter carburator. All windows work, although the right side switches do not.
Attention: this car is not a nut and bolt restauration, however it has had a lot of love and attention and wears still all the original parts and interior. It presents very, very well with an appearance you will not see often. However it drives and stops very different than a modern car.
This car is recently licensed and safetied by Dutch-state RDW.
