1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!

I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem. Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.

1958 Cadillac Runs & Drives After 15 Years & Commentary
I'm proud to say I have resurrected this car. It sat in a car port for 15 years but now she "runs like a sewing machine." New Exhaust pipes, carb from another car (63 Pontiac), rebuilt wheel cylinders for the brakes, new brake hoses, front end stabilizer pins and a few other things. Now she rides like a, well... Like a Cadillac!.. Next will be cleaning the fuel tank and fixing the fuel gauge...

1948 Cadillac Sedanette - "Cadzilla"
The Cadillac Series 1948 Sedanette is, in many ways, the car that best represents the beauty of the Cadillacs' design. With its powerful front grille, perfectly rounded mudguards, a rear-tilt ceiling line, in keeping with the rear ailerons that had been the gigantic "fish tails" in the 1950s. All this causes admiration for its details and His unique style. To this day this model is considered the most beautiful of all the Cadillacs ever produced.
