PAST ARTICLES AND QUOTES FROM FORMER OWNER: 1959/60 CADILLAC "MOTORAMA" CAR In the late 1950's chrome and fins were definitely in style...the more chrome...the larger fins...the more American car consumers like the styling, which was reflected in record breaking sales at dealerships throughout America. In 1959 at Cadillac, the stylists had their way with the largest fins ever put on a car produced to that time...but the greatest proponent of giant Fins, Harley Early, had retired. He also was credited with the creation of the Chevrolet Corvette and the Cadillac LaSalle among other GM styling triumphs. When Earl retired from GM in 1959, he left behind him a design legacy using classic chrome, two tone paint, tail fins, hardtop and wrap around windshields. Early founded the GM Design and Styling Department in 1927 and by the time he retired in 1958, it had grown from a staff of 50 to 1,100. The new regime at Cadillac had come up with a new look for the upcoming 1960 Cadillac among other changes, featured a much smaller tail fin. On January 13th, 1959, Cadillac produced a Series 62 convertible, VIN #59F0042438. This was to become a very special car...with a hintof things to come next year from Cadillac. Instead of a 1959 production Series 62 convertible body, a 1960 Series 62 body was slightly modified to fit on to the 1959 Cadillac chassis, engine, transmission. The 1959 current interior was also utilized but with one significant exception...to give the car a hint of what might be in store for future Cadillac owners, a black and white Emerson television was installed in the dash and the standard Cadillac radio was moved to the far right side of the dash and installed...also, a smaller Cadillac glove box was custom made and fitted into the dash. "Two years ago when we discovered and purchased this incredible piece of automotive historyautomotive history and "Cadillac Mechanical Art" I knew we had acquired something VERY special....We made up our mind that this was going to be an "open checkbook" restoration.... Today with over $100,000 spent on this restoration, the results speak for themselves! We am extremely proud of the finished results and am most appreciative of all of the highly skilled craftsman who worked on this car....to all of those...a special thank you for a job well done."

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
