THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

During the immediate post-war period, Cadillac, under the direction of Harley Earl, produced some of the world's most attractive automobiles and pioneered the ultimate direction for American automobile styling over the next decade. The 1951 Cadillac, with its signature tailfins, continued the trend towards refinement Cadillac had begun in '48 with the introduction of their new models. Using the smooth, robust and surprisingly economical OHV V-8 engine, backed by a GM Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, the Series 62 truly delivered performance worthy of a car recognized as one of world's finest in its day.

In 1952 Cadillac celebrated its milestone 50th year of production, or Golden Anniversary. To commemorate this the cars they produced featured numerous pieces of golden trim among other details. In this landmark year, another milestone was reached that of 13 million cars produced.

This example is finished in the very attractive scheme of dark metallic green which is matched by a two tone green vinyl interior. Rather charmingly, this Cadillac was chosen by its current owners to commemorate another Golden Anniversary, that of their wedding in 1965. It was acquired in May 2014, and then systematically gone through to prepare it for a 350 mile road trip to the famed Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia. For this, new wire wheels and white wall tires were sourced, the front seats were reupholstered, the chrome bumpers were renewed, front and rear, and the brakes and suspension were fully serviced. Naturally it completed the journey without a hitch. It has subsequently been shown at a Central Pennsylvania Cadillac LaSalle Club meet last May, where its peers voted it Best in Show.

Offered complete with an original Cadillac 50th Anniversary brochure, engine and shop manuals also accompany the car.
