1953 Cadillac Fleetwood
Meticulously cared for since day 1 we see laser straight panels bathed in stunning and befitting Tuxedo Black. This paint consignor states is mostly the original finish and shows some faults, mainly in door gaps and door edges where we see some rust bubbling. The remainder of the finish has aged well, with a few areas of respray. Simply a ton of chrome, all nicely preserved from the massive front bumper complete with its protruding "Dagmars", toothy grille, and fantastic turn signals which have ribbed bezels that wrap around to the front quarter. Just a bit of pitting and beginnings of rust are noted on this chrome. A beautiful trim spear runs from just above these massive bezels to the end of the front door panels. A vertical panel picks up midway into the rear doors and begins the slight flare of the rounded fishtail finned rear quarter panel. Wide rocker covers in polished chrome run the length of this car. The rear has a wide bumper which stretches from quarter to quarter, and sports dual "Dagmars" as well. Inset into the bumpers are dual exhaust tips around which chrome remains just perfect. Wide polished trim surrounds the windows of the passenger compartment, and this car is bottomed off with Kelsey Hayes 40 wire spoked wheels and wrapped in wide wide whites from Coker. Plenty of Cadillac badging in your grandmother's handwriting is attached to this car, letting everyone know you've arrived.
