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.

Carpool Deville aims to be the world's fastest hot tub

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 19:58:00 EST

The world needs crazy inventors with wild dreams. While we might not long for the things that they create, their contraptions certainly make the day a little more enjoyable. Take the Carpool Deville as an example. Nobody (well, almost nobody) is asking for a hot tub fashioned from a 1969 Cadillac that is still drivable. But now that you know that such a beast exists, don't try to tell us you aren't at least intrigued.
The team behind the six-year-long project has a pretty ingenious setup worked out. The Caddy's original 472-cubic-inch (7.7-liter) V8 both provides propulsion and heats the water. The interior is entirely replaced with a watertight, fiberglass tub that includes working jets, and the controls are all done by hand.
As if just building a mobile hot tub isn't enough, the team behind the Carpool Deville plans to take it racing too. Specifically, they intend to go to the Bonneville Salt Flats later this year to make a top speed run while immersed in water at over 100 degrees. They even have a roll cage all set to install to meet the safety requirements there.

Cadillac could 'flourish' in Australia, says marketing chief

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 11:30:00 EST

Cadillac might have its best product mix in recent history, and GM's luxury brand is looking to expand. In fact, it might even be making a trip Down Under, at least according to the company's global marketing chief.
Uwe Ellinghaus spoke with Australian site Car Advice at the Geneva Motor Show and said the brand could be quite successful there. "[The] goodwill that the Cadillac brand has is such a good starting base that once we get proper volume commitment and a dealer network behind it we can easily flourish," he said, though he warned that the plans are still in their earliest stages and years away. First, Cadillac will expand in markets with the highest possible sales, like China and Russia.
Ellinghaus said that the most likely models for Oz would be the SRX, Escalade and CTS; the latter would probably act as a replacement for the Holden Commodore. GM's Australian arm is ending local production in 2017, and there have been many rumors about what is happening to the big sedan. However, Ellinghaus admits exporting cars from the US to Australia is going to mean higher prices. In addition to the expense, Cadillac doesn't currently build any right-hand-drive models. It would likely take until the end of the decade before the Aussie models could be ready.

2015 Cadillac ATS sedan gets early reveal in making-of video

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 14:58:00 EST

Cadillac is apparently preparing to roll out a minor facelift for the ATS sedan - which we know not because General Motors has already revealed it or because we're looking at it in a fresh batch of spy shots (though we've seen that too), but because a behind-the-scenes video from the filming of its commercial has leaked out online. Which may be bad news for Cadillac, and even worse news for the film production company, but good news for us, because we get to see it ahead of schedule.
The revised sports sedan seems to be sporting a new front bumper and less egg-cratey grille with Caddy's new wreath-less badge at its center, all apparently put in place to bring the sedan more in line with the new ATS coupe.
We're sure Cadillac will be revealing the updated 2015 ATS sedan shortly, but you can scope it out right now in the video below. By way of comparison, we've included an image gallery of the current ATS, released back in 2013, as well.
