Styling and horsepower were the watchwords of ’50s American car design and no examples epitomised the thinking more than the voluptuous Harley Earl-penned Cadillacs. For the lower, sleeker body of the Series 62 model introduced in 1953, the effect of the distinctive tail fins that had been the company’s hallmark since 1948 were heightened by: a redesigned grille with heavier integral bumper and tapered dagmar-style bumper guards, prominent headlamp eyebrows, smoothly curved one-piece rear window and a fresh design of full-size chrome wheel trim. Power for the 1953 Coupe de Ville was provided by a 5.4-litre, V8 of 210bhp.
Finished beautifully in Black over Buttercup with stylish Green leather and Cadillac embossed cloth upholstery, this particular example is in superb running order. The Cadillac’s impressive specification includes the following desirable extras; power steering, autronic eye automatic headlamp control, (green) tinted glass throughout, power brakes and power windows. The car resided in Southern California from the ’80s until venturing across the Atlantic, and for a long time was owned by a retired aircraft engineer and President of the California Cadillac Owners’ Club who carried out all the technical work himself. It is clear our example has been fastidiously maintained over the course of its life, this is evident in the cars fabulous overall condition, with bright chrome-work, beautiful paint and an unworn interior. Examples of ’50s automotive Americana don’t come much bigger or more imposing than this.
