1960 Cadillac Coupe De Ville A/c True Survivor Hard Top 2 Door on 2040-cars

Year:1960 Mileage:46505 Color: is in nice shape but is in need of paint
Location:

Mangum, Oklahoma, United States

Mangum, Oklahoma, United States

Up for auction is one 1960 Cadillac Coupe De Ville. By my understanding having the "J" in the VIN makes it a true coupe De Ville and not a series 62. If my research and knowledge is incorrect please let me know. The car is in above average condition considering being 50+ years old.

 

The body is in clean and straight with no issues. As noted the only rust through is located on the lower rear corners of the front fenders. The floor pans and rockers along with the inner trunk structure and undercarrige are rust free. The chassis is rust free as well and at all body mounting points. All the exterior is in nice shape but is in need of paint. The color has faded but no surface rust around any glass etc... All glass is in nice condition and all power windows and electronics work including 6 way power seat. I have recenetly installed a brand new OEM style spotlight and (rare) bracket  on the car since the original spotlight and bracket were missing. The Air Breather and Valve Covers have been professionally painted with base coat and clear coat and look great. The vehicle will come with an extra drivers side door panel and a set of hub caps. The tires all have weather cracks and would probably need to be replaced.

 

The car is mechanically sound and runs and drives great. The vehicle has new push rods, lifters, fuel filter, fuel pump, transmission filter, cap rotor, iginition coil, stater, battery, oil filter, oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, anti-freeze, new intake gaskets, spark plugs, spark plugs wires, belts, hoses, and master cylinder. The transmission is in good condition and was free of any sludge build up or debris when the filter and fluid were replaced. The transmission shifts great and responds normally. The igintion system has had a full tune up and almost all of the ignition electronics have been replaced. The engine has had a recent oil change and the old oil was free of and metal shavings or debris. The cooling system has been completely flushed and had all of the anti freeze replaced with no abnormalities in the old antfreeze when changed. The carburetor has been fully rebuilt and cleaned and is a factory carburetor with electric choke. The car has factory dual exhaust but has rust throughout various spots but car is still quiet; however, the exhaust will need to be replaced.

 

The car runs and drives well. You could say its like driving a recliner down the road. The air conditioning on the vehicle works but will need a  charge in order for the air conditioning to be 100%. The heater inside the vehicle works great and blows hot without any leaks. The car is a true survivor that has not been molested and would make a great car for someone to restore and bring back fond memories or make new ones. The car would make for a great restoration or a great daily driver as is.

 

I offer no warranty with this car and please let me know if you have any questions via email through ebay. Serious inquiries can feel free to send a phone number and I will be happy to give them a call for more details or questions. Please contact me before you bid if you have less than 5 positive feedback but are seriously interested in the vehicle. I would prefer to have bidders that have more than 5 feedback. Paypal is a requirement for purchasing the vehicle because I do require a $500 deposit to be paid 48 hours after the auction closing with the remaining balance paid 7 days after auction closing.

 

Buyer will be resposible for the pick up and shipping of the vehicle. The vehicle can be picked up at a business with a large parking lot. Common carriers I have had good luck with in the past include DAS and Uship or you can use a carrier of your choice.

 

Thank you for taking the time to show interest in this vehicle.

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe favors cleanliness over radical lines

Tue, 14 Jan 2014

Though you might not know it from looking at vehicles like the XTS and Escalade, if you take a broader look at history, you'll see that Cadillac models have gotten a lot smaller from the tail-finned highway cruisers of old. At least when it comes to coupes, anyway. The Eldorado, in particular, kept getting smaller until it disappeared, its place taken in recent years by decidedly more compact XLR, CTS Coupe and ELR hybrid. What you see here, however, is Cadillac's smallest coupe yet.
Revealed today at the Detroit Auto Show is the new 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe, the brand's first compact two-door coupe, and the first production car to wear the brand's all-new crest. It shares the same platform and wheelbase as the existing ATS sedan, but packs a wider track and unique bodywork that's decidedly more conservative and less unique in its angular styling than the CTS Coupe that it's likely to ultimately displace in the Cadillac lineup. Styling aside, the all-American luxury marque has engineered the ATS Coupe with a focus on reducing weight to the benefit of both performance and fuel economy, giving it near 50/50 weight balance front to rear with underbody aerodynamic elements helping it cheat the wind.
Buyers will be able to choose between two engines: a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6.

GM considering new powertrain options for large SUVs

Tue, 15 Oct 2013

Aside from the new General Motors offerings, there's not a whole lot of action going on in the fullsize SUV segment. That doesn't seem to be stopping GM from pushing the envelope in the market as Automotive News is reporting that the automaker is looking to introduce some new powertrain options into the Chevy Tahoe (and Suburban), GMC Yukon (and Yukon XL) and the Cadillac Escalade - all have been redesigned for the 2015 model year.
Now, we already know that GM and Ford are collaborating on nine- and ten-speed transmissions for a broad range of applications (including the big SUVs), but this new report says that GM is also considering other options as a way to one-up the competition and, of course, to optimize fuel economy. AN quotes Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for GM trucks, as saying that "interesting powertrain technologies" are coming including a return of a hybrid SUV and possibly even a diesel engine. Although it sounds like the latter could come down to how customers respond to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel.

GM winding down Chevrolet brand in Europe

Thu, 05 Dec 2013

If you've taken even a cursory look at GM's European strategy and wondered how it can target the market there with both Chevrolet and Opel/Vauxhall, you're not alone. In fact General Motors itself has found it difficult to justify the two-pronged approach. That's why it's essentially pulling Chevy from the European marketplace.
Instead of trying to ply European buyers with what are mostly former Daewoo products rebadged as Chevys, GM will now let Opel (or Vauxhall in the UK) represent its mass-market aspirations. Chevrolet will keep its presence in Russia and other former Soviet markets, and will continue selling certain niche products in Eastern and Western Europe. The Corvette, for example, has long been sold in Europe through Cadillac dealerships, which for its part is currently "finalizing plans for expanding in the European market".
While the shift in strategy is expected to help GM get a stronger foothold in the European market in the long run, in the short term the restructuring will cost it dearly: between $700 million and $1 billion, according to its own estimates, split between the last quarter of this year and the first half of the next.
