I always wanted a convertible of this era, and this past weekend I got the opportunity. I really was hoping when I got one it would be a driver and not another project, since I already have way too many projects. But this car was just too cool to pass up. The car looks to be untouched since the 50's based on the ancient battery still in the tray, the tires, etc. The trunklid was shaved with lead (the lead is visible on the inside) and a '49 Buick rear bumper center section was added to put the plate in the bumper. I assume the bumper seams were covered with guards, a couple guards are in the trunk but they may have been from the front. The trunk is opened with a long choke style cable that ends at the driver's side sill plate. It's got lowering blocks in the back and the front sure looks like it's lowered too but I'm not sure how. Dual Appleton spotlights (S-550's, unusual for a custom) and one of the horn cover holes in front has a light in it marked "Passing", although that might be a factory Cadillac option, not sure. I think the top might be the original 80 year old top. Driver's seat has a cover on the bottom but the rest of the seats are not torn. Haven't even gotten a chance to clean it yet, but here are some early pics. I'm really hoping to preserve the old paint and upholstery and only repair or fill-in where necessary. Has the original flathead V8/stick trans, hoping it can be made a runner without a full rebuild but that remains to be seen.
