The 1959 year model is undoubtedly the most iconic Cadillac ever produced. It was the peak of the “big fins” era and to this day remains among the biggest fins ever put on any car. The “Jetsons” style, space race inspired rocket ship styling extends the entire way through the design of the car and it was packed with more luxury features than anything the world had seen at the time. This car was imported into Australia approximately nine years ago. We actually sold this car to the current owner who is a good friend and client of ours.

 The paintwork on the car is older but is in good condition and shines well. The body work is straight and solid throughout. The factory Brenton Blue paint scheme really suits period and the lines of the car and looks great offset against miles of chrome, the white interior and wide white wall tyres. The sheer amount of chrome and stainless trims on these cars is a sight to behold. The chrome on this example has all been refinished and shines brightly. The most visually impressive upgrade fitted to the car is the airbag suspension set up to slam it all the way to the ground. The suspension features an Accuair Endo VT, dual compressors and Accuair E-level Plus, self-levelling air management. This allows the car to have three preset ride heights, will self-level while driving and can even be set to pop up to ride height on the turn of the key truly making it a set and forget system. The air suspension allows you to cruise around at a factory height, then slam it to the ground when you want that custom look.

The interior of the car features an all-new custom white leather trim by Vintage Seat Co. The carpets in the car were all replaced and the front and rear seats, as well as the door trims and rear panels were all covered in white leather. The little billet Cadillac V badges in the seats add a nice subtle touch. The white provides a fantastic offset against the exterior paintwork and give the car a bright vibrant custom look inside. The dash remains the original colour to avoid any additional glare on the windscreen while driving. There are several cool factory options including the Autronic Eye, power windows and power seat. There is a custom Alpine stereo system neatly hidden away in the ash tray and the boot has been neatly carpeted with a side mounted sub box.

Under the bonnet is the factory 390ci V8 engine paired with the original 4 speed hydra-matic automatic transmission. The driving experience is enhanced by power steering and power brakes. These cars are great cruisers and this one has some very cool mild custom touches without taking away from the incredible factory styling. Nice 1959 Cadillac coupes rarely become available on the market and are highly sought after by collectors worldwide!
