Looks real close at fit and finish and you will agree that this is a fabulous car! It was not an easy decision for them to decide to part with the car. Lots of great memories are attached and they feel it is time for a new chapter for this wonderful Cadillac. I am sure it will be a long time before another this nice comes along.

134420 / 1947 Cadillac Series 62
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/l5erouf Combining the best aspects of classic motor city style with a skilled and thorough restoration, this substantial Cadillac is the perfect car for any enthusiast who wants to ooze old school swagger! An exceptionally solid survivor, this stunning convertible was completely disassembled, carefully modified and professionally restored by Malone Enterprises in Elkmont, Alabama. As you can tell from our documentation photos, the car was purchased in flat black and only required repairs to its hood and trunk to present a better-than-new appearance. Once those panels were patched, and sufficiently shaved, six coats of primer were alternated between six episodes of block-sanding, subjected to two installments of wet-sanding and covered in six layers of blue paint. When that paint dried, a thick clearcoat shell was sanded and buffed two more times to complete a three year, $181K restoration. And two years later, when the car's current owner came into the mix, he spent an additional $58K on slick black paint and a fresh leather interior. Restored by Mitchell's Racing Engines, and seated in a custom, body-matched bay, this Caddy's luxurious, 500 cubic inch V8 benefits from a full-scale detailing. At the top of its sinister black block, a silver-hued goddess rides a polished air cleaner that funnels wind into a coated Edelbrock 850 carburetor. That carburetor feeds a familiar Edelbrock Performer intake that's seated between big, "Cadillac" branded valve covers. At the front of those valve covers, a modern HEI distributor sequences fire through 8mm High Energy Wires. Those wires snake around ceramic coated, long-tube headers that dump charred gas into aluminized, true-dual pipes. In front of those headers, a custom fabricated Malone radiator sends coolant around a quick-spinning puller fan via bright, billet pulleys. Take a look under this super solid cruiser and you'll find a fully sorted chassis that, despite its road-ready mechanicals, is exceptionally clean and displays very few signs of wear. The front suspension was completely rebuilt using a '73 Firebird sub-frame and, like the modified Cadillac rear suspension, is currently fitted with adjustable air bags. Behind the big engine, a proven GM turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed makes good use of a sturdy, 10-bolt rear end. And at the corners of the car, traditional steel wheels spin 235/75R15 BF Goodrich whitewalls around dreamy Fleetwood hub caps. Clean, tailored and ready to roll, this Series 62's fresh leather interior features a perfect mix of outrageous style and traditional American luxury. The plush bucket seats are stuffed with firm padding and decked in striking, two-tone patterns. In front of those seats, a leather-trimmed dash hangs clean Classic Instruments gauges above billet components for Vintage Air climate control. Below that dash, a custom, full-length console centers buttons for the car's power top and air ride suspension under a modern Clarion sound system. In front of the driver, a polished Budnik steering wheel spins a color-keyed rim around a polished Ididit steering column. If you're looking for a spectacular custom that you can drive AND enjoy, don't miss the chance to park this classy Caddy in your garage. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!
