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.

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe priced from $37,995*

Thu, 15 May 2014 13:01:00 EST

Cadillac has released pricing details on its new-for-2014 ATS Coupe. The new model, which will be available with buyer's choice of a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6 (the ATS Sedan's base 2.5 won't be making the trip) can be had with optional all-wheel-drive in place of the standard rear-wheel setup, while customers can also snag a six-speed manual or six-speed auto.
Prices start at $37,995, which represents a $2,900 premium over the 2014 ATS Sedan (pricing on the 2015 four-door isn't available yet) with the same 2.0-liter engine. Still, the ATS Coupe starts at just over $2,500 less than a base BMW 428i, which is also less powerful and offers less standard equipment. The Caddy is also less costly than the Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe, although only by about $200. It's even cheaper than the Audi A5, which starts at $38,105, but that model includes all-wheel drive as standard. It should be noted that these prices are without their respective destination charges (*$995 for the Caddy, $925 each for the BMW and the Mercedes and $895 for the Audi).
Unfortunately, Cadillac hasn't released any additional pricing information beyond what we have here, so we can't tell you how much things like all-wheel drive, an automatic transmission or the 321-horsepower V6 will cost. That makes it difficult to figure out just how reasonable the ATS Coupe will be relative to its challengers, but so far, the value equation looks to be in the car's favor. When those full details roll in, though, you know where to look. Scroll down for the official press release from Cadillac.

Cadillac CT6 to be lighter than CTS, get PHEV model

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 11:33:00 EST

Cadillac is suddenly one of the most talked about automakers in the US with Johan de Nysschen taking control. The brand claims that it eventually wants to become, once again, the standard of the world. One of the first vehicles to actually prove whether that's possible is its upcoming CT6 flagship sedan. We still don't know what the production version looks like undisguised, but other important details are falling into place. The latest big news sheds some light on the Caddy's powertrain and some estimates of its weight and size.
General Motors product chief Mark Reuss dropped the details at the automaker's Global Business Conference. According to The Detroit News, he revealed that the CT6 would use a twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a plug-in hybrid would be an additional option. He reportedly claimed it would be the most "powerful six-cylinder gas engine in the segment" and said the hybrid could get around 70 miles per gallon.
Reuss also revealed that the CT6 would be about 53 pounds lighter than the current CTS, despite being about 8 inches longer, according to The Detroit News. If that's the case, the new flagship is about 203.5-inches long, which is 1.5-inches more than the XTS.

Cadillac's Butler announces surprise departure

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 17:30:00 EST

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Cadillac's vice president of global strategic development, Don Butler, has resigned. Butler has held the position since April, after a term as vice president of US marketing for General Motor's luxury brand.
As the report explains, the timing here is pretty unfortunate for Cadillac. Butler is the third high-profile member of Cadillac's brass to depart in recent months, following the firing of US sales boss Chase Hawkins and the pending departure of Susan Docherty. Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell told the Detroit paper, "Bob [Ferguson]," global boss for Cadillac, "and other leaders asked him to stay on. Don's here in the office today - and told our team that his decision is purely on a personal level. After three years of putting everything into Cadillac, he is stepping away for some personal time, and to consider new avenues in his life."
Butler says his decision is part of a decision to "recalibrate, reassess my priorities." Whatever the reason, it's an unpleasant surprise for Cadillac, which has been on a surge in 2013, with 30-percent jump in sales on the heels of the hot-selling ATS.
