Car description

I have owned this beautiful Cadillac Coupe de Ville Custom since 2003. During the time I have owned the car, did a number of custom modifications including paint, ustom wheels, irride suspension, nd a very high-end audio system. My only reason for selling the car is that I drive it so rarely I consider it a shame.

This is a 1962 Cadillac Coupe de Ville 2-door Custom

This is not a show car or trailer queen. It is also NOT A RAT ROD. This is a very well cared for custom car. Photos and walk around video will give you a multi-dimensional look at the car. Here are some additional details.


  • 4-way Airride Suspension with dual Viair Pumps and air tank mounted in trunk
  • 20" Intro Wheels with Goodyear tires - wheels were custom made for the car to allow the car to rest on the ground without cutting the wheel wells.
  • Tires are in new condition
  • Paint is glossy white paint with candy orange flames - no signs of serious rust
  • Emblems removed
  • Shaved door handles and locks - doors and trunk open with remote (or hidden buttons)
  • Doors and trunk close solid. All body lines, oors and fender gaps are perfect showing no signs of distress


  • Integrated sound system - integrated into the trunk, ear deck, ustom kick panels, o cutting. Four 12" subs, TX amps, ioneer Premiere head unit, Pod connector
  • Original steering wheel
  • Seats in excellent condition
  • No cracks in dash
  • Dash has never been cut
  • Electric front seat (seatbelts installed in front)


  • 127,000 miles
  • Original Cadillac 390 Motor
  • Original Hydromatic Transmission
  • 12V conversion
  • Dual Stinger Deep-Cycle batteries to run car + audio and airride
  • Dual glass packs - exhaust hidden underneath
  • Power Antenna works
  • All new brakes installed in 2014 - approximately 200 miles since replacement
  • All new hoses and belts installed in 2014
  • Original 1962 Cadillac showroom brochure, agazine print ads, ther artifacts
  • Registered, nsured, nd a clear Nevada title.

It is stored on battery chargers, n a climate controlled garage, nder a custom car cover year round. I start and move the car every couple weeks to keep the juices flowing. Oil is changed every year just for the heck of it even though we probably only put 100 miles a year on the car. Every year we use the car at Hot August Nights and it performs well.

=========================== VERY REASONABLE RESERVE ===========================

Why isn't this a $40,000+ car?

This could easily be a $40K+ car with repairs or enhancements to the following:

Engine and drivetrain All original. The engine leaks a little oil, nd the transmission pan leaks a little fluid. If I drove it more often, would have these leaks fixed but since it's only taken out a few times a year, just add a little fluids before I drive and go. If I was going to keep the car, would probably rebuild the motor and trans just to bring it all back to 100%. This would be a pretty easy rebuild for someone familiar with old American cars. Engine runs great, tarts without trouble. Does NOT smoke. Rev's and runs fine on the freeway. Shifts buttery smooth through all the gears.

BrakesI had all the brakes done in 2014. No real miles have been put on the car since. That said, ven with new brakes, raking is soft. My strong hunch is that there is either an air bubble in the brake lines which could be fixed by bleeding the brakes, r, he brake booster is bad (under $100 part). There really isn't anything else that could cause this. With all this, still drive the vehicle fine.

AirrideThe air ride was done 8 years ago and it still airs up and lifts the car fast. The air system could use a tune up - there are some line leaks that will allow the car to drop from drive height down overnight. This doesn't really affect driving the car but to make it perfect, his could be tightened up. The guys who did the airride are still around in Carson and they are very familiar with the car.

ElectricalI had a high-end alternator built for the car when we converted it from 6v to 12v. Alternator appears to be charging fine. There is a short someplace causing the volt meter to not register. This could probably be traced by any auto shop. Since both batteries charge fine when the car is running, have to think this is a short and nothing serious.

Heater A few years ago, e had a heater line pop when we were out driving at Hot august nights. We opted in the moment to bypass the heater core. Again, ecause this car is only driven in dry and perfect conditions, e never repaired these hoses.

Cosmetic Paint is in excellent condition. Shines, o dull spots, inimal chips. This is no rat rod, ut at the same time, his is not a show finish paint job. Small spider chip in the windshield and a small hole in the headliner (smaller than a quarter). Both have been there 12 years.

InteriorCarpet is in decent shape but could be replaced if you want perfection. Dash, oor panels, nd seats are in excellent condition as the photos show.


The Bottom Line

Sort out the issues above and you will more than double your money on this car. If you are like me and don't care about these things, ive with what you don't want to fix and enjoy this 53 year old automobile. This car is a perfect price point for someone who wants to get into hot rods without breaking the bank. Also excellent for mechanically inclined folks. They are easy to work on and parts are available. I would love to take this car to the next level but since I've owned this car for over 12 years, want to start a new project.

I am not going to give this car away. In spite of these full-disclosure statements above, his is still an excellent car. These 60's caddys are popular and their values are increasing. It is also becoming difficult to find cars with no rust, ood paint and interiors. This car has all those things. Take a look at the detailed photos and walk-around video for additional information.

I will also consider a trade for 1960-1966 Chevrolet or GMC C10 Fleetside shortbed truck.
