Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is thrilled to feature this stunning 1953 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe de Ville for sale right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. Sporting an aircraft-inspired look with a shimmering chrome front grille and all kinds of exuberant body lines, these Cadillacs were built for wealthy post-World War II Americans looking to ride in style. Today, the same statement can be made in this totally restored and show-ready Series 62 Coupe de Ville. The exterior starts with a correct Cadillac âTunis Blue"/Cream roof paintjob, re-plated chrome and polished stainless steel. New glass has been installed all around and a tinted front windshield will keep you staring straight ahead while envious onlookers squint to see the lucky son-of-a-gun driving this 1953 Caddy! Open the massive all-steel hood and it gets interesting: a modified 500 CID V8 engine, which some of you might remember was used in later model Cadillacs from the 1970's, features a 4bbl carburetor, power brakes, power steering and air conditioning. According to the seller, this 1953 Cadillac is a factory air"car but the unit installed is aftermarket R-134. A Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission keeps the wheels turning through a Ford 9" rear end. You'll like the way this car handles, stops and steers too with its Pontiac Firebird subframe, 4-wheel disc brakes and new radial whitewall tires. The inside of this 1953 Cadillac is a truly wonderful place to sit. A comfortable two-tone Blue leather bench seat with seat belts matches the dash, original style gauges and Quartz clock while some integrated Dakota digital readings and a custom stereo with 10-disc changer will remind you that this a new, improved version of a '53 Cadillac.
There's a center console too for all the important things we need to bring with us nowadays and power windows/power seats will help anyone get adjusted to this retro ride quickly. This 1953 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe de Ville for sale looks good, runs good and is ready for your local show scene!
