This 1959 Cadillac Sedan Deville was formerly an elderly woman’s pride and joy for 35 years. She purchased the vehicle from the original owner(a jewelry salesman) in 1980 and babied it until she sold it in 2015.
After 35 years of ownership the 59’ was sold in 2015. After being acquired it was taken to a mechanic who was familiar with working on classic cars. We have all documented invoices performed on the car totaling approximately $6,000. The service performed includes the following: all new brakes, complete tune up, carburetor rebuild, new front end parts and alignment, new pinion seal and gear oil, new rear seal, new fuel filter and seal, rebuilt radiator, new water pump, complete valve job, and new battery.
Needless to say the car runs, drives, shifts and stops perfectly. Probably one of the nicer running 1959 Cadillacs out there.
The car was painted in 1977. In addition, we have the original can of auto paint dated 1977. The paint has held up fairly well over the last 42 years. Moreover, the bumpers are good however have been spray painted on the lower portions likely to prevent rust or clean up existing rust; we aren't sure exactly what the circumstances are but the bumpers are solid and could be re chromed if desired. Finally, the floors including the trunk are solid with no visible rust.
The interior is all original and in excellent condition considering its originality. There is a seam pulling apart on the drivers side front seat. Moreover, the steering wheel is in excellent condition and has the original horn ring! The glass is in good condition as well.
The original wonder bar radio works well as does the original electric antenna. The power windows work nicely too. Hood Ornament is off a 1947 Cadillac. Note key lock in passenger side right front fender believed to have been some type of alarm installed by the jeweler who was the Original owner.Have the complete set of Original hub caps in excellent condition in the trunk and they go with the car also have a new Cadillac am-fm -Bluetooth radio that goes with car.
