Description

I am offering this 1963 Cadillac Convertible that I purchased from a classic car aficionado in Washington State who had recently purchased it from an estate auction. This distinctive Cadillac has an extremely rare color combination that was in storage for nearly 40 years as it was last registered in 1975!!!!!!! It was stored properly as the floor pans, frame, trunk pan and rocker panels are original and have virtually NO RUST! (I intentionally did not carpet the trunk to illustrate the original rust free trunk pan and sheet metal)Please view the photos that I have posted of the frame, floor pans and trunk pan, as the photos speak for themselves.
I have invested many thousands of dollars on this vehicle’s recent extensive mechanical and body restoration. The mechanical restoration was performed by Rick Johnson Auto of Naples, spearheaded by Mike/Chris and their staff that had devoted many hours in the mechanical restoration with exemplary results. Precision Collision/ Bill Polidore of Naples performed an outstanding result with the body restoration and matched the original color perfectly. Tim Schaus a local craftsman hand-painted the grill to restore it to its near original condition, most of the photos were taken professionally by "Photo Jack, Artistic Imagery" a well-known and highly respected local photographer.
I went to great lengths to restore this exceptional vehicle by using as many NOS parts, paint, trim and mechanical items as much as possible to maintain originality. This exceptional vehicle is rare, unusual and is distinctively attractive, for the person that desires the look of prestige, admiring looks, attention and who wants to do it just a bit differently than everyone else!
To showcase its most stunning features, including but not limited to:
New paintNew Leather Seats in the correct factory pattern!New convertible top and tires, Vanity passenger Mirror and NOS Cadillac floor mats!New Exhaust ,Brakes ,Fuel Pump ,Battery, Plugs, Top motor, Water Pump, NOS Automatic Transmission Filter, Wheel cylinders etc.!The power seat works fine as I have replaced the switches and seat transmission!The original dash is in almost perfect condition and the metal parts of the lower dash were professionally painted in the original white color. I personally flew out to California and selected and purchased most of the exterior chrome for this distinctive vehicle from a vintage Cadillac Salvage yard in the desert that specializes in Classic Cadillac’s.(the original chrome had dings and scuff marks)The engine and drive train perform smoothlyThe vintage power antenna and AM Radio work!! and this vehicle was per the build sheet constructed on 04/01/1963 with controlled differential (posi-traction - a rarity in these old cars)
· The factory build sheet, owner’s manual, sales brochures, etc. are included with the purchase of the vehicle, and a clear Florida Title is in hand and will be transferred to the new owner immediately upon the receipt of payment in full.
This is a stunning classic cruiser that turns heads wherever it goes. It was one of the featured cars in the Naples Parade and drew a voluminous amount of attention due to its striking exterior and interior color combination. I have repainted it in its original color scheme, Basildon Green which coordinates with the original two tone white/black interior.
This meticulously restored vehicle is by no means a "TRAILER QUEEN" and in my opinion is an excellent driver quality vehicle! The reserve price is reflective of its quality.
I have been in this hobby for over 45 years and attended hundreds of Car Shows and auctions and I have NEVER seen this color combination on any 1963 Cadillac Convertible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The information off the Vehicle trim tag is as follows:
· Paint code 32 , Basildon Green
· Trim code 20 White Leather
· Top code 1 White
· Accessory code EY

GOOD LUCK BIDDING!

There is no such thing as a "PERFECT" carespecially when dealing with vintage cars that are 20, 35 and even 50 years old.
Arranging for an independent third-party inspection is a great way to validate a seller's claims about a vehicle's condition. There are many companies and individuals who offer such a service. Of course your personal inspection and scrutiny are suggested and most welcomed.
The seller has made a diligent effort to accurately describe this vehicle but does not expressly or implicitly guarantee the accuracy of the above description.

Your bid is your agreement to purchase the vehicle, not to come and look at it and then decide,you have ten days to do that before the end of the auction.
