Upon the release of Cadillac’s sixth-generation Series 62 model, many would argue that it was among the most beautiful Cadillacs ever made. The car’s iconic, accentuated tail fins followed by its dual bullet-style headlights made the car an instant hit among American motorists. The design ethos, as penned by then GM head of design Bill Mitchell, would mimic the American optimism for more grand cars. It was the Series 62 that would capture the elegance and prestige that the ostentatious and heavily chromed American cars of the ’50s could only dream of.

This 1960 Cadillac Series 62 presents in good condition throughout. It was originally optioned as a Basic Group B car, featuring air-conditioning, wide whitewall tires, AM radio, heater, and EZ eye-glass. According to ownership records, the car was previously registered in the State of Arizona. Afterwards, the Cadillac has been in the same family ownership since 1993. During the following 26-year tenure under the current custodian, the car has been well-kept and maintained.

In December 2018, the Series 62 received a major service, including the upgrade of a new carburetor, tires, weather stripping, front disc brakes, radiator hoses, exhaust, taillight lenses, and interior trim. The car was also upgraded to a new rear air-ride suspension setup. Furthermore, the Cadillac benefits from a new electronic ignition system, electric fuel pump, and Truespoke wire wheels. Included in the sale is the correct Rochester carburetor, air cleaner, drum brakes, original fuel pump, original wheels, hubcaps, and a spare set of brand-new AC wide whitewall tires.

Coming off a freshened paint job with new clear coat, as well as a new ivory convertible top, this Series 62 is ready to be enjoyed in premium comfort while attracting the attention it so rightfully deserves.
