Description for Cadillac Fleetwood 1956

After months of thought and procrastination, decided to sell my 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special. It's been a hard decision trying to decide between selling this car, r my 1959 Lincoln Continental 2-Door Hardtop.
I've owned the Fleetwood for 5 years, nd it's really a great car. I have the title, nd it's in my name. To start off, t's a rust-free, ractically un-touched southern car. I was told it never left the state of Kentucky, ntil I bought it. I drive it frequently, nd have taken it on a couple of 80 mile road trips. It appears the paint is mostly original. I was told the engine was re-built sometime in the 1980's. The car runs, hifts, nd breaks well. The original exhaust ports do not have any rust holes, nd I was planning to run the exhaust back through them as it was from the factory.
The power windows work. The windshield wipers work. The parking brake works. The heater and defroster work. The AC blows out the vents, ut the air does not come out cold. The radio works, ut the power antenna does not. Although I never found out what to do to get the antenna to go up anyway. I don't see a switch. The autronic-eye works. It was cool the first time I forgot to dim the headlights, nd found the car did it for me. The power seat does not work. The switch has always felt loose, o I'm guessing it's that?
While I've owned it, 've:- put on new factory correct tires- replaced the water pump- had the generator rebuilt- battery is a year old- had the radiator re-cored- replaced the gas tank, nd sending unit (The original tank was off the car when I bought it to replace the sending unit. There was nothing wrong with the tank, ut figured why not buy a new one? Then everything is new... I'll include the original tank with the car)- installed a quiet, ew electric fuel pump (There was already one on the car, ut it was loud. I liked the idea of not having to take the air cleaner off the car & put gas down the carb if the car sat a length of time. Just turn the key to on, ait a minute for the fuel to pump to the carb, nd then start the car like a modern car.)
I will not end the auction early, nd I don't give away reserve prices. A $500 deposit is due within 48 hours of the end of auction. Balance paid in full in 7 days. If you need to ship the car, ask that you don't leave it here for a month. If you do, can't guarantee I'll be able to store it indoors. If the Fleetwood doesn't sell, may try to sell the Lincoln instead. If you have any other questions, eel free to ask. Thanks!
