This is a reluctant sale of my stunning looking 51 Cadillac Coupe, ive been using this the last few months and it turns heads where ever it goes but i could do with the funds for a new project.
The previous owner, since 2006, told me the car originally belonged to the actor Mickey Rooney, i also know the previous owner to him who also told the same story. I dont have any paperwork to back this up but its a cool story.
The car starts, runs and drives well for its 66 years of age
The body is very tidy, it was last painted in 1991 and it has held up amazingly well, there's not a bubble or blister come through anywhere, it presents very well with just a couple of very minor marks.
The chrome is mostly original and has a gentle patina, i quite like it like that.
The interior is an older re-do and is tidy throughout
The car starts easily thanks to a 12 volt conversion and runs well. I've done a few 100 mile round trips in the car with no issues.
The car is easy to drive with the power steering, rare on a 51 as it wasnt standard issue until 52.
Steering and brakes all feel good bearing in mind the car is on crossply tires
Mechanically the brakes have been gone through in recent years, the kingpins have been renewed, i changed the oil and filter last week.
I have bills for an engine rebuild in 1991, the car hasnt done a great deal of miles since
The private plate in the photos is now removed and the car is on an age related plate
As with most old cars there's a few things that could be improved but nothing that would stop you enjoying the car now, the car isnt perfect, if it was it would be £35k.
The price takes into account the minor improvements you could make
The passenger floors show some older repairs that could be tidied if you were bothered
The fuel guage reads full most of the time, the rear windows click but i havent persuaded them to go down yet and theres a minor exhaust manifold chuff
Overall the car is in very good condition for its age, a car you can jump in and use now and make improvements when the show season is over
Offered for sale at just £22,500
Scroll down and have a look at the photos and video.
Email or call me on 07836 349356 for more info if you're genuinely interested
Poss px deal with another 50's or 60's American car
Delivery possible for a fee after cleared payment
