- Superb restored example
- Nut and bolt restored in Denmark including engine, gearbox, hydraulics
- Newly delivered in Denmark so fitted with kilometer indicator
- Absolute stunning appearance. The restoration has cost much more then the current asking price of the car


An American car in the Houtkamp Collection. A lot of people dont expect that. Honestly we neither, but this example is absolutely amazing and so incredibly beautiful that we were more then willing to welcome her in the collection.

We have to be honest that this Cadillac does not belong to us. The car is owned by a gentlemen who bought some very nice cars from us. His quality level is extremely high and he is always looking for the best of the best. When he saw this Cadillac at a show in Germany he decided to buy the car.
The condition is so extremely unique that it will be hard to find a 2nd. example but unfortunately due to the amount of cars in the collection of the owner, he is not using the car enough and as you can imagine the Cadillac takes some space so he decided to bring the Cadillac to us in order to sell her to another enthusiast.

The Cadillac series 62 was first introduced in 1940. The car was offered for more than tow decades.
This specific example is a series 3 example which was introduced just after the war and is easy recognizable by the famous Cadillac fins, which are without question one of the most iconic styling cues of the 1950s.



ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE

This specific Cadillac is a rather unique example as off-course most of these Cadillacs were sold and delivered in the United States but this specific example is a car which is newly delivered in Denmark. It has been in Denmark for almost its entire life before the Cadillac came to the former owner in Germany.

We have had quite a lot of cars from Denmark and a unique and nice feature on Danish cars is most of the time the condition.
It seems that the quality of restoration in Denmark is extremely high.
We once asked a gentlemen from Denmark and he told us that time is not a big issue for Danish people so they invest a lot of time in making a superb result.

Thats definitely the case with this Cadillac. We certainly have never seen a car like this in such an amazing condition.

According to the former owner the Cadillac has been restored over a 30 years period starting from 1983. Actually it seems that the car is just finished from restoration as there are no signs of damages, even not from a stone chip.

We personally like that the Cadillac still is in its original color scheme and even the engine shows the correct number which is a rarity with these cars.



CONDITION EXTERIOR

The Cadillac is in a superb cosmetic condition. The paint can be best described as from a very very high standard.

The body is extremely straight which is unique because the car is off-course very big.

The gaps are perfect as well.

The chrome is absolutely amazing on this car. It must have cost a fortune to bring the chrome to the current condition. Even in re-chroming there is a quality difference but this chrome is just better then excellent.

The windows as well as the lights and glass are all as new so actually the entire exterior can be described as pristine and unique due to the fact that the costs of restoration must have exceeded the current price of the car.



CONDITION INTERIOR

The Cadillac is condition wise, both interior and exterior in a superb cosmetic condition.
The leather interior is as new and the leather which is used is from a very high quality resulting in a soft and comfortable seat position.

The dashboard is stunning as well. The chrome is like a mirror without any signs of pitting or scratches.
The sprayed black top is the same. Again in a wonderful condition.

All buttons and knobs are as new and everything is perfectly working. Even the electrical windows as well as the soft top are opening and closing with a touch on the button.

Actually the entire interior is as new and perfectly detailed including the carpet but also small items as the blowers, the mirror or the buttons of the radio.

We can conclude that the detailing in the interior is extraordinary.





ENGINE BAY

According to the former owner the original matching numbers engine can be found. Again completely rebuilt and running wonderfully but probably the looks of the engine are even more impressive then the sound of the engine.
If the engine bay is opened it becomes immediately clear that this car has been restored extremely thorough.



DRIVING EXPERIENCE

What should we write about the driving experience. From the moment that you start the car it gives a smile on the face.
The sound is absolutely fantastic but also the seat position is as you expect and see in the American movies.
Actually it feels as you are in the cinema instead of in a car.

The Cadillac is starting immediately and runs very well. The handling is smooth and easy

All together this is a very rare and unique example of the Series 62 Cadillac Convertible
