1962 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine
Can you say potential? Some may not see it but if you have that creative
streak you know this classic has an awesome future. Whether you are
hobbyist looking for a fun garage project or a builder contemplating that
next wild custom this car is perfect. The 1962 Cadillac Fleetwood
Limousine had to have been the ultimate sign of luxury because not only
were you cruising around in a Cadillac, you had a driver. The body on this
classic is very solid and painted and off Black with fine Gold metal flake.
These cars had a lot of stainless trim which you will find all in place
and cleanly mounted. The large front and rear chrome bumpers are also
there and have a good shine. There are a lot of windows on this classic,
all of which is in good condition with a slight tint. All of the exterior
electrical is working properly with the lenses nicely mounted in those cool
classic fins. The car has the fender skirts mounted on both sides in the
rear and can easily be added or removed. It sits on original style wheels
with hubcaps which are wrapped with thin white wall tires.
If you frequent car shows we are sure you have heard the saying "if cars
could talk, the stories they would tell." Well you have to think this
classic Limousine has a very unique story. Most limousines were produced
by outside companies who would cut and stretch cars they bought from
manufacturers. According to our sources these were one of the few cars
actually created in house by GM due to the smaller approximately 2 foot
stretch. After being produced it was sure to have escorted around some
pretty interesting people especially if it was really used at Carswell Air
Force base as we suspect. You can even see footage of similar Limousines
being driven around when JFK himself landed in Fort Worth. Even more
interesting is the bullet hole found in the right rear bumper. We are sure
creative minds could come up with all kinds of stories about this classics
history but with our limited records we will just say it gives it
Roaring to life under the steel hood of this Caddy is a 490 V8 that was
rebuilt 500 miles ago. It may not be decked out with chrome but it still
runs strong. It is backed with an automatic transmission that shifts
smoothly with no issues. The brakes have also just been rebuilt. With a
little cosmetic work here and in the interior this car could be a hit at
every car show. Or if rat rod is more your style hop in and drive it as it
The interior is all the original cloth that is certainly showing its age.
Everything is there though including the original style pull out seats. In
true limousine style it has the driver/passenger partition which still has
the original clock and ashtrays. The dash is all original as well with the
correct style knobs, switches, and gauges. The car has dual front and rear
AC units which are both mounted but need servicing. It came from the
factory with power windows which are still working properly.
If you haven't already called your car buddy to start drawing out ideas for
this classic then you are missing out!
