I have a very solid 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine for sale. The 331 V-8 runs well and sounds good. The previous owner rebuilt the engine about 5 years ago. I don't have the specifics on the rebuild. The trans does slip severly in forward gear. Reverse works fine. The power steering and brakes are good. The miles are 63,396. This one came from dry Montana and has a really solid body and undercarriage. The bumpers were rechromed some years ago but still shine well. Both front door glasses have cracks but don't leak. The rest of the glass is good. The paint is the correct code 9 which is Cobalt Blue. A rare color for a Limo. The clear coat is peeling in many places. The interior is also the original colors of 2-tone blue cloth. Much of the interior has been redone in the correct patterns. The headliner is very good. The seats are nice. The carpet is worn. The door panels were also redone. The front door panels have a speaker hole in them to accept modern speakers. The previous owner installed a modern sound system with hardware in the trunk. There is a remote for the system included. I have only played the new-style radio and it works fine. The power windows are not currently working. It has a decent set of correct '53 Cad hubcaps on it. This one does have the original jump seats in the rear.
This 1953 Cadillac Limo needs a few things but is a good one to restore! I had a local "old-time" mechanic estimate $700-800 to redo the forward band/rebuild the trans. Then paint it and you're driving down the road in true style. The interior is already pretty nice as-is. A dark blue 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine would be a very impressive car to drive and ride in!!
Please feel free to ask any questions. In-person inspection is encouraged. Sold as-is.

Under Johan de Nysschen, Infiniti moved its headquarters from Yokohama, Japan, to Hong Kong. Now at Cadillac, it appears the company's new president could be planning a relocation of at least some of the brand's operations from Detroit to Manhattan, according to a new report from Reuters.

In the case of Infiniti, de Nysschen pushed for the move because moving away from the brand's Nissan overlords would allow it a bit more freedom. It's evidently a similar case for Cadillac, with Reuters speculating that such a move would help distance the brand from the corporate culture in Detroit. A Big Apple move could also attract new talent that may have considered a job with the brand but were put off by the idea of living in Detroit.
It's important to note that if such a move takes place, it likely won't affect the folks actually responsible for developing the brand's vehicles. Instead, administrative functions, including marketing, could be the focus of the relocation.

Both of America's domestic luxury brands seem to be stuck in neutral.
It's ironic that Cadillac and Lincoln got new bosses within days of each other this month. It's also a commentary on the fact both of America's domestic luxury brands seem to be stuck in neutral.
Utilizing information provided by Cadillac suppliers, Reuters says that Cadillac is preparing two more crossovers that will bow after its current product initiative is complete. According to the report, a year after the next SRX arrives in 2016, a pair of CUVs will be unveiled that will bracket it in size, and they'll be headed for the US and Chinese markets.
That is years away, though. For now, the company's attentions are on the nearly here CTS and ELR range-extended coupe, the next Escalade SUV (shown above), an ATS coupe, and the range-topper that will sit above the XTS. That, and possibly an even more impressive range-topper that promises to be the mean and majestic super-luxe unicorn Cadillac we've been dreaming about for more than a decade now.
In response to the issue of how German crossovers might be having an impact on Cadillac's future plans, a company source said - rightly, we think - "we don't need to duplicate the Germans." That doesn't mean, however, that it can't wade deeper into a market segment that the Germans are making a ton of money in. In fact, and since everyone is doing it, we'd be surprised if Cadillac didn't, even if it won't happen for another four years.
