Description

This
is a Great ! 1953 Cadillac Convertible. This car has been stored inside
in a garage with the same owner since 1973 !!! The car has never been
left in a field to rot away or abandoned, it's a nice original car that has just been in storage for decades ! The
car is in original condition and would make someone a great project to
restore or do a little work to it and put it back on the road and drive
it as a true survivor or rat rod style car. Before the car was parked someone brushed a quick coat of primer on it to help protect it, I have stripped off most all of it to reveal the original paint !  65 Years old and it has the original paint !!! Very rare to find. There are a few
spots that were touched up on the original paint, mainly the passenger
side rear 1/4 panel and a little on the doors. Overall the car is very
solid, the main rust spots are the drivers side rocker panel right at
the front where it meets the fender,
and both rear 1/4 panels, in between the door and rear tire area, with
the passenger side being worse than the drivers side. Both these area's
have body fill in them from previous repairs, and will need new metal put in. The bottom of the fenders is solid, the bottoms of the doors is solid, as is the trunk and hood lips, inner fenders ect. Inside the doors, inside the trunk and under the hood are still all
original paint and have never been touched ! Overall the car is pretty straight with very few dents or dings. The floors in the car will need a little work. The drivers side front floor has a large hole in it, the drivers side rear pan has a few smaller holes in it. The passenger side floor pans are rusty, but do not have any holes in them right now, but are a little week and may end up with a few small holes if they were sand blasted. The car is very solid and good underneath, there is a spot
on the drivers side inner rocker panel right under where the hole in
the floor is, as well as a smaller spot on the inner rocker farther back. The passenger side inner rocker is good. All the floor braces ect are good. The rear frame cross member, the small part that runs between the frame rails is bent in a bit, it sort of
looks like someone might have had a trailer hitch or tried to push or
pull something at one point, I see this allot and shouldn't be much to
straight up, although it doesn't effect anything as is. Overall the frame is good, the floor braces and structure is good, the rocker panels are decent, it just needs a couple floor patches or pans. The seats are in good overall shape. I don't know if those are seat covers on them, or if
someone re-upholstered them at some point, I don't believe that to be
the original leather on the seats. I pulled the material back a little
and it looks like the original leather is still under there, but I don't
know it's condition of coarse. The door panels and side panels are Ok shape but are worn. All the trim is there. The original soft top boot cover is there as well. The only thing I see that is missing are the fender skirts. The trunk floor
is in excellent shape, as is the spare tire well. Along the back edge
where they all rust is very good, there is one small spot of rust
on the drivers side, the passenger side is excellent. The car has the
original spare tire, the original jack, trunk linings ect. This is a
very original car ! The
engine starts and runs really nice. It idles good and sounds good, but
it does smoke. Upon checking the numbers on the motor it appears to be a
1952 Cadillac motor, so it's not a numbers matching car although it all
looks original and correct. It currently runs off a
portable gas can as I haven't cleaned out the tank yet. The transmission
does work, the car will yard drive and will drive on a trailer, but it
has no brakes. The transmission does leak pretty badly when running, and
the rear main oil seal also appears to be leaking. The two issues may
be easy fixes as they are probably just dried seals from
the car sitting so long, but I haven't looked into them. The hydraulics
on the car are not working, so I haven't been able to check the windows
or top. The hydraulic motor under the hood clicks when power is put to
it, so it will need to be re-built. The battery in the car is brand
new. There is a good solid replacement front
top grill bar to replace the one on the car. The tires are new. The
windshield does have a crack in it. The original colors of
the car are Gloss Green with Light Green & Dark Green Leather
Interior with a Green top. It was equipped with the optional E-Z Eye
tinted glass as well.  Overall this is a very well preserved original car that is solid overall and a good start if someone wanted to restore one. With only 8,367 ever made it can be very hard to find one of these '53's left that hasn't been restored and hasn't been left to rot away in a field !
I
have a clear title to the car in my name and will help with shipping
anyway I can. I have shipped & helped shipped cars overseas in the past
and will work with overseas buyers. I also have lots of
experience in shipping cars to the US, and can help with that too. There
are no problems with this car going back to the US, it was originally
sold new in the US and is exempt from most regulations due
to that and it's age. Please inquire about shipping before purchasing,
Thanks. There are more pictures on my website - fadedfins.com
