1974 Cadillac Sovereign Combination Hearse Ambulance by Superior Coach


Car has a 472 with 28,860 actual miles. New belts, Alternator, and Battery. The only mechanical issues are a small oil leak and a crack in the smog control pump bracket (see pictures) Some paperwork in the dash from the original owner including yearly inspections noting mileage through 1987. It was purchased in 1974 by a funeral home in King, NC and they used it until 1987 and sold it to a small firm in West Virginia, they traded it in on a newer one in 2004 and it came into the possession of an individual in the Chattanooga area. It has been out of Service since 2004. The individual and the dealer he bought from say that these are the actual miles. It drives strait and true just as a Cadillac should, although it might benefit from a good tune-up as it idles a little rough at time but has plenty of power. The brakes work well and the transmission shifts fine. The man I got the car from said that on the way back from the dealer in Virginia the transmission began leaking and he in turn had it rebuilt when he got it home (2004). It also has an external transmission cooler now.  

Runs and Drives Good. Looks pretty good for a 40 year old car, it is not perfect. Has been repainted a few times and could stand to be painted again to make it really nice. It has a few chips and blemishes in the paint and a few little areas of surface rust and some bubbles in the lower front fenders that will need some attention,(please see pictures). The frame and floorboards are solid. I tried to get pictures of the under side, they are not real good but maybe you can get an idea.           

Interior is in good condition and could stand a good cleaning. (see pictures)

New tires receipt is in the dash.

All functional parts still in back. Jump seats and belts are there. Comes with Landau Panels, Ambulance Plates for rear windows, cot (old Washington two man), and fire extinguisher. It has a small modern siren on it and still has all the controls for the lights, rear air/heat, rear dome lights, etc.. The Radio works but the antenna has quit in the down position and the air conditioner compressor has been wired to a toggle switch mounted under the dash and does blow cool air but will also need some TLC. All the Glass is good.

Asking $5495.00 O.B.O.

Call or text 423- 599-0328 with any questions. If you call and get no answer leave a message and I will call you back.

Cadillac confirms 420-hp twin-turbo V6 for 2014 CTS [w/videos]

Mon, 18 Mar 2013 11:07:00 EST

The 2014 CTS will break cover next week at the New York Auto Show, but Cadillac has released a few details of what we can expect to find under the car's hood. As we saw in some spy shots back in January, the biggest news for the midsize Caddy will be a twin-turbocharged V6 producing a whopping 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
This LF3 engine will be paired to a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which will help balance performance and fuel economy. We still don't know how much the 2014 CTS has grown in terms of size and weight, but General Motors says that new sedan will return 17 miles per gallon in the city and 25 mpg highway with the new engine to go with a 0-60 mile per hour time of 4.6 seconds - that means the new CTS will have the fuel economy close to the current base model sedan and acceleration not too far from the current CTS-V. General Motors also confirmed that this twin-turbo V6 will be available in the 2014 XTS this fall.
The next-generation CTS will carry over the 3.6-liter V6 from the current car (likely as a base engine) and also add the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder from the ATS. Check out all the details on this new engine and watch a few videos (including GM's nifty tilt rig) by scrolling below.

GM CEO Akerson calls out Tesla, says Cadillac will compete on EVs

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 08:45:00 EST

Cadillac will be taking on Tesla Motors, the underdog EV manufacturer that's seen heaps of critical acclaim and stock market buzz with its most recent sedan, the Model S. "If you want to compete head-to-head with Tesla, and we ultimately will, you want to do it with a Cadillac," Dan Akerson, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, told media in Washington, according to The Detroit News.
Akerson continued, telling The News, "We'll sell more Volts and lose less money on the Volts than they'll lose on the Model S." He also took time to point out that Tesla getting vehicles out to customers isn't a guarantee of success or permanence, using Fisker as an example, saying "Does anybody even remember Fisker? I mean, there were a number of them; they are all gone."
This strong talk from Akerson comes after Doug Parks, another GM exec, let slip that the Detroit-based manufacturer has an EV in the works that will cover 200 miles per charge and only cost about $30,000, a massive upgrade over similarly priced EVs that struggle to top 100 miles per charge. Until that vehicle arrives, though, GM is preparing the Cadillac ELR, a small coupe that, like the Volt with which it shares technology, uses a gas engine as a mobile generator to recharge the batteries. Akerson took aim at Tesla again, saying, "But I do think when the ELR comes out late this year, early next - it's certainly the same postal code as Tesla, but now we're going to move up. It's not going to be a mass-produced car."

Cadillac reveals more 2015 Escalade details, launches colorizer

Mon, 30 Dec 2013 19:01:00 EST

Cadillac has opened up a mini-site to entice you into its all-new 2015 Escalade, and begun talking about more of its features and trim levels. While all versions of the new daddy Caddy will be powered by a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque routed through a six-speed automatic, there will be three trim packages you can wrap around that powertrain and seven exterior colors available to make it pop.
Features common to all trims include leather throughout, heated and cooled front seats, a 12-inch reconfigurable dash cluster, a quieter interior thanks to Bose active noise cancellation and the brand's love/hate CUE infotainment system. The base trim comes with adaptive remote start, hands-free tailgate, rear-view camera, park assist, Magnetic Ride Control and sits on 20-inch wheels. Moving up to the Luxury spec increases your stature with 22-inch wheels and adds a reconfigurable, color head-up display, a sunroof, power fold-and-tumble second row seating, Intellibeam headlights and a Driver Awareness Package with active crash-avoidance technology like Safety Alert Seat, lane departure warning and forward collision alert.
The top Premium trim gets a Driver Assist Package that includes Automatic Collision Preparation, automatic braking and adaptive cruise control, rear-seat entertainment, along with exterior touches like illuminated door handles.
