Another great car and story, love this stuff, good luck, that would be a fun project!!
What a great car and great story! Big smile on my face as I was reading this post! It's a beauty!
Yep...…..there still out there!
Man that thing just drops an eclipse on that trailer! I always forget how big they are.
What a great find. Garrett should have no worries getting smiles out of that one.
What a beauty.
Garrett didn't have any hair the last time I saw him. Now he looks like Elvis!! It was meant to be!
Keep us posted on his progress please!
What a find! I just spent the better part of this morning daydreaming about 57-58 Cadillacs and this turns up!
Don was talking about the ride, the tire sticker states 24 psi!
Damm that cleaned up nice, what's that color called?
The only one, Jesus.
Where’s the crease that caused it to be parked? I missed it.

The classic chromosaurus, rumored to be extinct but still being discovered here and there. Nice car!
This may sound redundant but, GREAT FIND !
What a beautiful car!Congrats!That cleaned up really nice!!
Chris I see you aired up the original tires but how on earth did you get that land yacht out of that tiny shed into the alley and then lined up for the trailer. And it did have to be lined up perfectly to go on the trailer.
I see bilsat called it a chromosaurus- love that term.
Very very jealous. First old car was a 57 CDV. Beautiful car. Would love to have another. Great story, thanks for sharing

I'm not a big fan of Caddies, but that one has to be one of the best looking ones I've seen! I agree with the others, fix what needs fixing and drive that old girl, she's been sitting waiting on a prom date for too long!
On ‘57 Chevys I think it was called Lockspur Blue...but that’s coming out of a really old memory.
Well I'll be Dagmar'd . . . . Beautiful!
What a transformation at the car wash good luck she's a beauty

That car would make a bitchin mild custom. No matter what it is an awesome story and I am glad to hear another one is saved!

Great find and thanks for cleaning it up. Looks good.
Of course, there will be some disappointed souls due to the fact that you didn't just clear coat over the grime and then brag about the "barn-find patina".
You can see it under the tree after its cleaned up.
