THE SERIES 62 CADILLAC

The redesigned 1957 Cadillacs were the ninth-best selling marque in America even though Cadillac saw fit to introduce such extravagances as the Eldorado Brougham, at $13,074 the most expensive car built in America by a margin of $3,000. It was a period of nearly-unbridled optimism, tinged only slightly by hints of a forthcoming recession. But with 146,841 Cadillacs sold any economic malaise seemed to have little effect upon the prospects for General Motors' luxury brand.

A new X-braced chassis frame enabled the 1957 Cadillacs to feature longer, lower bodies offering undiminished interior space - thirteen styles in total - all of which sported dual rear lights and tail fins larger than before. General Motors' chief stylist Harley Earl had introduced tail fins on the 1948 Cadillacs, and the device would reach its zenith in 1959 before fading away. The Series 62 Convertible was built on the 129.5 inch wheelbase chassis and, like all '57 Cadillacs, came with a 365cu in (6.0-liter) V8 engine, in standard trim producing 300bhp at 4,800rpm. Automatic transmission, power steering and power-assisted brakes were standard on all models.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Build on December 28th 1956 this well preserved piece of Americana is believed to have been sold new to the state of Oregon. In 1957 the car was registered by a Mrs. Mary L. Judge in Fair Haven New Jersey, from here the history of the Cadillac is blurry until 1973 when it was bought by Mr. Charles S. Allen of San Leandro, California. Recorded to have shown 80,117 miles in August of 1973, Mr. Allen kept the car in good running condition during his almost 20 years of ownership. The Cadillac's history file contains many registrations cards, receipts and notes about the car's mileage each year—corroborating the belief that the car's mileage is genuine.

In 1995 the Cadillac was sold by a Florida based dealer to the consignor who lived in Switzerland at the time. In his possession in Europe, the convertible would be used on sunny days for relaxed cruising and local shows where the car has been voted best of show on one occasion. After moving to San Francisco, California the consignor decided to get the Cadillac back stateside. Since 2014 this strong runner has been used and enjoyed in the Bay Area and now showing what is believed to be a genuine 121,000 miles. Presented in the same Glade Green color it has had since new, this Series 62 Convertible from the golden era of American motoring is ready for its next caretaker.
