1958 CADILLAC SIXTY SPECIAL FLEETWOOD -- CALLED MOTORDOM'S MASTERPIECE
This year the Caddy sheetmetal got only minor reshaping with spiked fins
but yet called the most flamboyant Cadillac's yet with chrome extravaganza.
The Series 60 Cadillac came in only this model shown, a hardtop sedan.
Other Cadillac models were the Series 62, at the low end, and then above
the Series 60 was the Series 70, the Eldorado Brougham, and the Series 75
the limo and commercial chassis for hearse and ambulance bases. This
Series 60 Special cost $6,232 and 12,900 units were manufactured. The
engine available is a V8, 365 cid with between 310 - 365 bhp. I admire
this beauty because of it's luxury feel from the dagmar bumpers with it's
rubber tips, and the " luxurious " black and gold fleck upholstery with
white leather. How 'bout that hardtop look with the expanse of grooved
stainless steel along the rear quarter panel with matching fender skirts ?
Tons of chrome lathered on this Cadillac with glossy black paint make this
a very fifties luxury car and a great example of what the GM Division
called a Motordom's Masterpiece. Thanks very much for viewing this 1958
Cadillac Fleetwood hardtop.

Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with
mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille
puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed
of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with
comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for!
Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off
restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of
factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and
official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally
glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what
appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of
botched repairs or historic damage.
Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor
coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this
convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the
largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth
And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this
mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit
merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's
satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting
from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary
items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome,
single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator
overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And
thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may
not even notice it's running.
Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional
GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the
car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride
Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually
no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies
which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests.
If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this
DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear
seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of
those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a
contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD
player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and
chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac
steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple
chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk
seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a
small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South
County Customs jack.
This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks
attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on
the planet! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today.

This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his
first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has
owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46
years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933,
80 years ago.
There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!.
Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original
first start of the engine see the other video at
