Cadillac Series 62 Convertible 1957

For sale: Cadillac Deville Convertible 1957 in fully restored condition

Exterior: It is a jaw dropping experience to see this car, even somebody like me that have seen a lot of classic cars in my life. It is so big, the colours are so striking, the chrome and the design is just incredible. The body is super straight, and the quality of the paintwork is one of the best I have seen. The car has had a full restoration, so I am not going to list all the things that are new. Since just about every screw on this car has been replaced or put back to condition like new. Soft top is operated with a switch and there is matching convertible cover. As you can see it is riding on brand new chrome spoke wheels and there is also a set of original steel rims with diagonal tyres and correct hubcaps.

Interior: Everything inside the car is complete new and made to the specifications it had when it left the factory in 1957. All gauges, power windows etc works the way it should. There is a big comfortable sofa up front that can be moved in all directions with a simple touch on a switch.

Engine: The engine was completely in pieces and built back up again with new parts. Also, the automatic gearbox has been rebuilt. Everything runs perfect and the power is amazing for such a big car from this era is incredible. Please note all parts also around the engine, such as carburettor, charging relay, starter etc is also rebuilt or new.

History: The Cadillac Series 62 Convertible came from USA to Sweden in 2012. The owner decided to do a complete restoration of the Cadillac and this was completed in 2017. The restoration is fully documented with pictures all collected in a nice book about this car. If you want to experience what it felt like to buy and drive a new Cadillac Series 62 Convertible in 1957, you now have the chance.

Ford Mustang 1965

Classic Ford Mustang for sale in Sweden

This nice Mustang recently had some major restoration work completed and it has not been used since. The list on what was done on the car can be made very long and here are the major things listed.

  • Overhauled 302 engine
  • Complete new interior
  • New fenders --- front and rear
    New gearbox
  • New rear axel
  • New tyres
    New bumpers and some other chrome details
  • The car was taken to the Technical Control here in Sweden in October 2011 and is now ready to go. It started life with a 289, but now has a 302 engine with a new Holley carburator. The car was painted in the original color tone, Wimbeldon white, and got a two-tone red/white interior. The cost for putting this car in the state it is today has exceeded what we are asking for it! All the work done to this car was carried out by professionals working with American cars.

DeSoto Custom Sedan

For sale: DeSoto Custom Sedan 1947

This is one of those great big American cars! As big inside as most people's living room and just as comfy too! Enough chrome, imitation wood and cool gadgets on the dashboard to make you want to sit there all afternoon just looking. The inside feels extremely glamorous for a four door sedan car. The car is 100% original and is still in its first paint! It looks amazing two steps away, but if you look close, you will be able to see all those little stone chips and some small scratches at the lower part of the car. We believe the odometer has rolled over once, so it has covered just over 100,000km. 6 cylinder engine starts up easily and the Fluid Drive system means you have two manual gears and the third is like an overdrive when you let off the gas pedal. At the moment, the car is in need of brake work. In Sweden, there is no tax or inspection required for cars prior to 1950.
