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.

Corvette's Performance Data Recorder headed to other cars, will Cadillac ATS-V be first?

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 15:44:00 EST

For 2015, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gained a novel piece of high-performance technology: The Performance Data Recorder. This trick system combines video from a front-mounted camera with in-car data and GPS information to help drivers record and study their lap times, complete with data overlays. While it's a clever tool for track days, it's also finding popularity as a built-in dash cam of sorts. To this point, the technology has been a Corvette exclusive, but General Motors' executive vice president of global product development, Mark Reuss, has confirmed to Autoblog that it will soon be available in other vehicles.
At a media luncheon on Thursday, we asked whether GM was keen to expand usage of the technology to other models, and if we could expect to see something soon. Reuss coyly replied, "What's soon?" When we suggested the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V (which is scheduled to debut at next week's LA Auto Show), he replied, "There will be other uses, and it won't be that far away. How's that?"
Certainly not an outright confirmation, but we wouldn't be at all surprised to see the next high-po Cadillac roll under the klieg lights at the Los Angeles Convention Center next Wednesday brandishing more than just 450 horsepower.

Cadillac ATS Coupe headed for Detroit reveal

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:01:00 EST

Cadillac wouldn't be Cadillac without its two-door models. But the XLR has been discontinued for over four years now, the Elmiraj concept may never see production and the future of the CTS Coupe is still up in the air. That leaves just the ELR, which may not be conventional enough for traditional Cadillac coupe buyers. Fortunately a new coupe is coming along to fill the void.
According to Edmunds, Cadillac will reveal the new ATS coupe just a couple of months from now at the Detroit Auto Show. Expected to mechanically mirror the existing ATS sedan, the new coupe will also more conventionally resemble its four-door counterpart than the CTS, whose coupe version was distinguished by a rakishly sloping roofline.
Expect the same choice of engines to carry over, with a 2.5-liter four serving as the base engine, and both a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6 offering more power for those looking for that extra bit of oomph. Following the Detroit reveal, sources anticipate the ATS coupe to go on sale next summer.

Cadillac releases updated 2015 CTS

Sun, 10 Aug 2014 13:01:00 EST

Cadillac is in the process of applying the new wreathless emblem across its range one model at a time, but rather than simply slap the new logo on the existing models, it's taking the opportunity to roll out some revisions as well. First came the ATS coupe, followed by the updated ATS sedan, and now the flagship brand in the General Motors portfolio has quietly announced some revisions for the CTS sedan as well.
For the 2015 model year, the CTS - which was just introduced last year - gets a revised front end with that wreathless crest but also a new chrome grille with active aero elements on standard models and a black-chrome grille on the Vsport. The revised grille is flanked by new headlights, but behind them the engine lineup carries over: a 2.0-liter turbo four with 272 horsepower, a 3.6-liter V6 with 321 hp or - in the Vsport performance model - a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 with 420 hp that's still the most powerful V6 GM has ever made. All engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (ditching the six-speed auto on previous versions) and (apart from the RWD Vsport) can be had in rear- or all-wheel-drive flavors.
Cadillac has also given the updated CTS some new electronics (including inductive smartphone charging, onboard wifi, and more advanced parking and lane assist systems) as well as new wheels, trims and color options, details on which you can read in the press release below.
