1956 Cadillac 7533 IMPERIAL SEDAN Formal Limo
If you are inclined to restore a 1956 Cadillac, this is the one you want. This is the Formal 7533 Limo with the electric divider window and Black Leather front seat for the chauffeur.
My father bought it in Bakersfield California in the early 1980s with the intention of restoring it himself. After he passed in 1988, I too was exited about the idea of rolling down the street in the backseat of the 1956 Cadillac Limo, changing radio stations from the backseat and attending functions "Corleone Funeral" style .... well, life had other plans for me and the car still sits with 70,000 original miles waiting for someone to restore her properly.
The Rear "Opera Window" was missing for a time and the rear seat material was damaged. I found a perfect 1956 Limo replacement window and had it installed. Steele Rubber didn't have a listing for the rear window weather strip, so I sent them mine and they made a pattern. They sent me a new rubber that is in the trunk if needed.
It started and ran beautifully in the 1980s when we acquired it, but I have not tried to start it again in 30 years. Original drivetrain (with batwing cleaner).
A very original and honest car. CA Black Plates (EQE) couldn't be cooler. Body number 133 out of 955 produced.
Has not been tagged since 1967 and is currently registered "Non-Op" with a Pink in my name.
VERY original, honest and complete car ready for complete restoration.

General Motors has gotten approval to build a $1.3 billion manufacturing facility for its Cadillac brand in China. China's National Development and Reform Commission signed off on plans for GM to build the plant in the country's Shanghai's Jinqiao zone; construction is expected to begin in June of this year. According to a Bloomberg report, the plant will have an annual production capacity of 150,000 units.

No surprise here, but Cadillac would like to sell a lot more cars in the plush Chinese luxury market. The brand moved only 30,010 cars in China last year, compared with 400k for Audi, and about 330k for BMW. With Cadillac already telling us that it would be moving production of its XTS sedan to China - a production decision that saves having to pay 25-percent import tariffs - approval of the factory is a critical win for the company.
In fact, according to earlier comments by GM China president Bob Socia, it's at least conceivable that Chinese-built Cadillacs could be shipped back to the US for sale. The brave new world of globalization, getting stranger by the minute.
If you thought Cadillac was content to leave its twin-turbocharged Vsport as the range-topping CTS, think again. Behold, our first good glimpse at the next-generation Cadillac CTS-V sedan, sporting more aggressive styling (somewhere under there), meaty quad-exhaust pipes, and what very well could be a new face for the V-badged Caddies.

Creating an all-new grille design seems like an awful lot of work just for a prototype, so it's very possible that the vertical-bar treatment you see here could make its way into production. Our spy photographers have pointed out that they've seen this same sort of grille treatment on prototypes for the smaller ATS-V sedan, and we've heard V-series models may soon have greater differentiation from the standard vehicles that sired them - that seems especially necessary if Cadillac insists on expanding this whole Vsport range.
Regardless of how its front end looks, the CTS-V ought to be a real monster. Industry sources say we can expect to see a supercharged version of General Motors' 6.2-liter V8 under the Caddy's hood, and considering the current car already makes 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque, we wouldn't be surprised to see a decent increase in both of those numbers. After all, one of the CTS-V's main competitors, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, is currently putting out 550 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Could this mean a 600-hp Cadillac is on the horizon?
Johan de Nysschen isn't afraid of taking quick, decisive actions, even if they are criticized. Since taking the wheel at Cadillac, he instigated moving the luxury division's base of operations to Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood and introduced a new naming scheme for the future of the brand, like he did at Infiniti. The polarizing boss recently explained his feelings about the future of Cadillac in more depth on his Facebook page, but unfortunately only his friends could read it. Thankfully, Daily Kanban posted much of the strongly worded missive for the whole world to see.
Much of the message examines the decision to move some employees to New York. De Nysschen claims that it's all about giving Cadillac distance from Detroit to reshape itself. It allows for, "No distractions. No side shows. No cross-brand corporate considerations. No homogenized lowest common denominator approach. Just pure, unadulterated, CLASS."
