Resurrecting the 1960 Cadillac
My brother bought a 1960 Cadillac. This is the first time it has ran in 16
years. I know I keep saying 8 in the video but it was actually 16. The old
guy he bought it from drove the car up from NM in 94 and started tearing it
apart to restore it but never finished and it sat in his barn since then.
Redline Review: 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
With the smaller ATS now in the lineup, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is finally
free to move up-market in size, power, and prestige. The all-new
third-generation CTS showcases a lot of firsts for the Cadillac brand. The
first twin-turbo engine, 8-speed
transmission, and a plethora of luxury and technology makes this one of the
best mid-size luxury sedans money can buy. If you want the best handling
vehicle in the segment, look no further, your sport sedan has arrived.

1956 Cadillac Coupe de Ville Part 1
This is my 1956 Cadillac Coupe de Ville which I bought back in 2002 from a
collector in Colleyville, TX. He did not have the car for sale, but had
driven it to the Arlington Swap Meet as his transportation as he was
looking for a convertible. I had just arrived at the swap meet and spotted
this car on the outside perimeter and was instantly taken in by its
beauty--'56s have always been my favorite of the '54-'56 generation. The
feature that immediately stood out for me was its original all red leather
interior. I knew this was not the standard interior for a '56 Coupe de
Ville, but was in all likelihood an option. I since learned that this
color, along with about seven other colors, could be ordered as an option
on any body style of closed car. It is essentially the same interior as
would be found as standard equipment in a convertible. The further appeal
of the car was its high level of optional equipment, including sabre wheels
and the two-four-barrel El Dorado engine as well as factory
air-conditioning. It also has first-year availability remote trunk
I obtained a build sheet from the Cadillac Historical Service and learned
that the car was built on January 13, 1956 and was sold about two weeks
later through the P. P. Covert Cadillac dealership in Lee's Summit,
Missouri. Beyond that, I don't have any of its history, but would like to
have if anyone recognizes this car.
The one weak link was the transmission, which I knew before I bought it had
a bad reverse cone. It was overhauled at a transmission shop in my
hometown of Waco, TX in 2002 with 51,000 miles on it. It didn't shift
quite right when cold right from the start, but would smooth out when
warmed up. I didn't want the shop fooling with my car, so decided I could
live with it. Six years and 6,000 miles later, in 2008, the transmission
self-destructed inside. I took it to another shop, in business longer than
the first one and when I got it back it shifted to perfection from the very
first day I had it and has done so since then. The second shop showed me
the parts from the original rebuild and also told me of several things they
had done wrong. They even got the linkage in perfect alignment, something
I had missed with the first overhaul.
The factory AC was not working when I looked at the car. I bought it on
condition that the AC be working and when I picked the car up on Saturday
of Memorial Day weekend 2002, the AC worked perfectly. It still works
perfectly to this day with no addition of freon at all.
I've made one mechanical alteration to the car since I've owned it, but
it's not visible. The standard axle ratio for '56 Cadillacs was 3.07 to 1,
but 3.36 to 1 was standard with the two 4-barrel set-up with no option
possible. I like a higher geared set-up and about a year after buying the
car a NOS 3.07 gear set appeared on eBay. I got it for the amazing price
of $129, had it sent to my mechanic who installed it and filled it with
synthetic lubricant. It has never whined and the motor is noticably less
busy at 60 MPH than with the 3.36 gear set.
