Car description

Perhaps the coolest aspect of the RestoMod craze is seeing just how creative some of these builders can be. Blending an intricate balance of old and new technology, these mechanical masterminds can turn out some really wicked machines. Take this 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, for instance. It has successfully combined classic styling with contemporary comfort, performance and reliability to produce a truly compelling customization.
This vintage Caddy has so many mind-blowing features that it's hard to say exactly what catches your eye first, but it would most likely be the immaculate paint job. The breathtaking Burgundy Metallic finish completely dominates the appearance of this entire car. It's deep. It's rich. It's ultra glossy. And it totally envelopes the long sleek lines of this wide-bodied two-door hardtop. The paint job isn't perfect, nothing ever is, but the overall presentation will leave you speechless. The body is very straight and solid with no noticeable issues. The chrome trim is all there and in fantastic shape. You'll see some slight fading of the grille, but nothing is broken and it still shows very well. A set of fender skirts on the rear add the old school appeal that reminds you that this automobile is a child of the '60s. Nothing does a more dynamic job of accentuating the body and paint than an overpowering wheel and tire ensemble. A set of brand new bias ply Coker Classics fat whitewalls mounted on true wire wheels make it absolutely impossible to take your eyes off this car. And the center caps proudly display the familiar Cadillac emblem as confirmation of the Coupe DeVille's legendary lineage.
Open the doors and you'll be suitably impressed by the sheer amount of space and elegance this automobile has to offer. You could easily turn cruising into a family affair. There's room for everyone. The seats and door panels have been reupholstered in rich tan leather, affording you that luxurious look and feel you'd expect from a high-end cruiser. The comfort level will make you a little hesitant to get out of this fine ride once you've reached your destination. You'll just want to sit and relax a bit. Of course, it's a Caddy, so she's loaded with accessories. Cold A/C, AM/FM with cassette, power everything... It's all there.
Let's check out the drivetrain. That's where this build got really, REALLY serious. The original Cadillac running gear was dismissed in favor of a late model fuel-injected 454 paired up with a 700R4 automatic transmission. That's the kind of powerhouse combination that will make a big car like this literally sail down the interstate. The motor itself is basically stock with factory intake and exhaust manifolds and an electric fuel pump. A Griffin aluminum radiator keeps the engine cool under the most grueling conditions. And when it's time to stop, a front disc brake conversion brings this beauty safely to a halt. Everything about this conversion was done coorectly; not a single bolt out of place.
The power, pride and pageantry of the past and present are masterfully showcased in this majestic cruiser. The owner drove it all the way from Greenville, SC to out Atlanta showroom without missing a beat. So you know she is definitely roadworthy. This is a car that was built to be driven and enjoyed, and will win you a trophy without even trying. Shouldn't that pleasure be yours? Call today!
