ORIGINAL TRIPLE BLACK CAR, RECENT RE-PAINT, BIG 390CI MOTOR, VERY SLICK CADDY!
A factory-correct triple-black 1960 Cadillac Series 62 convertible – yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. But don't be afraid to keep digging, because you'll see an iconic classic with everything from its original numbers-matching V8, to a professional respray of its midnight hue.
This kind of black paint is better formalwear than a tuxedo. A recent professional respray of the factory correct color gives this Cadillac the power to be a celebrity. And let's face it, we all love to see when someone has already made the proper investment of time and money keeping an icon like this looking like a superstar. After all, the acres of sheetmetal and all that brightwork are as American as apple pie. That's why we are so pleased to an overall presentation that is straight, complete, and shining like a gem right down to the wire wheels. Even the convertible top is new. For many, 1960 is the perfect year. The iconic tailfins were toned down from their peak in '59 where the sleeker style made these classics appear a whole lot sportier.
Inside there is a correct leather interior to complete the ultra-desirable factory triple-black combo (i.e. black paint, top, and interior.) The button-top driver's seat is sofa comfortable and power adjustable. Best of all there is a center fold-down armrest, so you can decide if you want to carry along five family and friends or have more individualized comfort. The rest of the interior is nothing but a great coordinating festival of black and chrome. You see this on everything from the door panels, to the carpeting, to the thing two-spoke steering wheel, to the boot cover for the convertible top. The whole shining package makes you want to crank up the Elvis tunes and go for a cruise (there are provisions for a modern music player hidden in the glovebox.) The dash is original equipment as well, and the dazzling chrome instrument panel will most definitely remind you of a Wurlitzer jukebox. Best of all, this convertible comes with a factory power top and power windows. So it only takes the touch of a few switches to go from enclosed luxury, to open to the world – you don't even have to leave the driver's seat!
Cadillac's 390 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big V8 power. This numbers-matching original unit looks fantastically well presented with the blue block and valve covers hiding under the tidy black belts, hoses, and air grabber. The motor fires up with ease, which is true sign that this was well maintained. With an advertised 325 horsepower, it has the kind of legs to be peppy around town and cruise at 70 MPH on the highway. And the dual exhaust has a nice rumble that reminds you of a classic American V8 without jeopardizing the Cadillac's luxury atmosphere. Cadillac pioneered automatic transmissions in 1941, and the unit living behind the V8 shifts crisply and has that unique Hydramatic feel to it that suggest precision machinery at work. Add in power steering and power brakes, and this makes for an effortless classic cruiser. The final touch is the set of the whitewall tires that's essential for an icon like this. But what you'll also be happy to know is this classic setup hides modern Goodyear Eagle grip.
Those bullet-like ends in the grille, razor-sharp tailfins, and a length longer than a minivan – this is style for style sake. They only produced 14,000 examples in 1960, and you're likely going to be hared pressed to find another in such great condition or factory desirable triple-black. So we know you need to call today, or you may regret it tomorrow!
