Description

VERY ORIG APPEARING CADI, 346 V8, 3-SPEED MANUAL, RESTO PHOTOS & SERVICE MANUALS

Rarely do you get an opportunity at any car from 1942. So when it's a big, glossy, and highly original Cadillac Series 63 sedan, you know this is something quite special.

The Series 63 will always hold an interesting place for Caddy fans. It was likely born out of the ashes of LaSalle, and with USA's involvement in WWII, 1942 was a very limited model year. More than just history, you love this because it's a true classic Cadillac. The massive grille makes a bold statement as it follows the contours created by the tall hood and long fenders. The wraparound bumpers shine to a level that it makes sure this sedan leaves a lasting impression. And the details are even right, too, like the factory wheel covers and the taillight housings that hint at the tailfin era that was coming after the war. With all of this presenting so complete and bright, this Cadillac has never lost its regal image. The final piece to this attractive package is the glossy black. This is the result of an older respray, so some might get the impression you have an amazing survivor – and we won't tell your secret.

Luxury in a '40s car was all about going broad – broad doors, broad space, and broadcloth. The interior looks and feels like it was updated during the car's lifetime, but the button-top pattern on the seats and doors are quite correct for a luxury machine of the day. The sleek dash is an Art Deco masterpiece with a very symmetrical look and auxiliary readouts cleverly hidden in a narrow band in front of the driver. The AM radio is still on display, and the heater works properly for those times you want to be first to the car show. It's an overall authentic feeling that you'll enjoy right down to the steering wheel with classic Cadillac horn cap.

Cadillac's 346 cubic-inch V8 engine was the icon of the industry. This big motor that carried sixty percent more displacement than what was available at Chevrolet. This kind of history makes it extra special to have the correct V8 under the hood today. More than just the motor, the whole engine bay appears to be highly original. It includes nice green flat heads, an original-style air cleaner, and all the major accessories intact. This V8 makes plenty of torque, and when combined with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, this classic Caddy still knows how to cruise with comfort.

Complete with restoration photos and service manuals, this Series 63 sedan is a rare treat for true classic car fans. So if you want to be the center of attention, hurry up and call today!
