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.

Cadillac mulling CTS Coupe successor after all

Thu, 04 Apr 2013 14:15:00 EST

The 2014 Cadillac CTS made a big splash last week at the New York Auto Show, but now that we've seen the sedan, we can start to wonder about whether coupe and wagon versions are in the cards. According to Edmunds, Cadillac is at least considering bringing back the CTS Coupe for a second generation, which seems like an even better chance since the brand's global marketing director, Jim Vurpillat, was quoted as saying that the car was the top-selling luxury coupe in the industry.
Of course, this goes against reports we heard last year that Caddy's coupe and wagon would live on just not under the CTS name, but the interview with Vurpillat has us hopeful for a next-generation CTS Coupe. If it does come to fruition, we would expect the new two-door to have a largely unique exterior design like the current CTS Coupe, to echo that of intended rivals like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and even the high-dollar BMW 6 Series.

Cadillac sales chief Peffer resigns amidst slow sales

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 14:16:00 EST

Cadillac continues to hemorrhage executives, as it's just seen its fourth high-level departure in the past year. Vice President of Global Strategic Development Don Butler (who defected to Ford) and European President and Managing Director Susan Docherty both left the company of their own volition, while Chase Hawkins, Cadillac's vice president of sales and service, was fired following a "violation of policy" in July of 2013. Strangely, it's Hawkins' replacement, Bill Peffer (shown above), who has handed in his papers this time around.
"Bill left to pursue other interests. Kurt McNeil replaces him, effective immediately," spokesman David Caldwell told Autoblog via email.
McNeil last held the VP of sales and service position back in 2012. He's currently the vice president of US sales for all of General Motors. According to The Detroit News, McNeil will take on the post in what is likely an interim capacity.

Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition is here for a limited run

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 11:31:00 EST

The Cadillac ATS has been a well-received entry into the small sport sedan segment for General Motors' premium brand, but keeping the model fresh is an understandably high priority. A two-door coupe variant is on the way and should help keep interest up, but the line's volume leader is still expected to be the sedan. In order to keep awareness high and sales going, GM will need to lavish a little attention on its four-door, as well. That's where the Crimson Sport Edition comes in.
Crimson Red Metallic paint is the exterior highlight for this special-edition Cadillac, while the interior is complemented with a number of microsuede touchpoints, including the heated steering wheel and shifter. To this point, the car's rich burgundy finish has only been offered on CTS-V Coupe and Sport Wagon models, and brand spokesperson Donny Nordlicht tells Autoblog that this is the first time that the company has offered a microsuede wheel with heat. Four interior trims are also available, although all have been seen previously.
The Crimson Sport will be limited to production this spring, and the trimmings can be added to either the 2.0T Performance or the V6 Premium specifications. Both rear- and all-wheel drive will be available, as well. Prices start at $46,010 for the turbocharged model and $51,010 for the V6 including destination fees, which represents a premium of $2,990 for the extra equipment.
