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.

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.
Cadillac is moving swiftly to change up its naming scheme. Barely over a week ago we received our first indication that it was considering a different name its the upcoming flagship sedan previously known as LTS. Then Cadillac not only revealed the model would be called CT6, but announced that it would set the stage with a massive overhaul of its model nomenclature. And now we have another piece of the puzzle.

According to Forbes, Cadillac will not only rename its sedans with the letters CT, but will realign its utility vehicles under the banner of XT - both to be followed by a number indicating its place in the lineup. The one exception will be the Escalade, whose nameplate has such a strong following that it would be foolish for Cadillac to cast it aside. That leaves only the SRX (pictured above), but makes room for a new crop of crossovers said to be in the works.
It's a similar approach which Cadillac's new boss Johan de Nysschen took in revising the naming scheme at Infiniti. While it's bound to ruffle some feathers and scratch some heads in the beginning - especially since the company's current flagship sedan is called XTS - it's equally sure to make sense of it all in the long run. All we need to know now is what Nysschen and his marketing chief Uwe Ellinghaus plan to call the coupes.
Cadillac's new President Johan de Nysschen has faced a fair amount of criticism since assuming his position at the head of the American luxury manufacturer. From the company's move to New York City to a controversial new naming scheme, the first few months of his tenure have not been smooth sailing. Now, the embattled exec is firing back against his critics, notably Automotive News Editor-in-Chief Keith Crain, in a new column running in AN.
De Nysschen countered Crain's claim that the move to the Big Apple, "can only mean that someone wants to live in New York."
"The relocation decision is entirely unrelated to the personal living preferences of any Cadillac executive. No corporation would tolerate such indulgence by its leadership," de Nysschen wrote. "It is about structurally entrenching a challenge to the status quo by reinforcing the psychological and physical separation in business philosophy between the mainstream brands and GM's luxury brand."
