Description for Cadillac Series 62 1957

You are bidding for a 1957 CADILLAC SERIES 62 CONVERTIBLE!I have not been able to locate the serial number on the engine block yet, but I strongly suspect it may still be the original engine that came with the car (PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT I CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT STATEMENT). But, the best part is that it still starts! (ENGINE RUNS OFF GAS CAN).I purchased the car from son of original owner who shipped it to me. The car had been sitting outside for quite some time, and that is unfortunate because it collected rust over the years. THIS IS AN UNFINISHED CAR. Obviously, the body needs work, but it's definitely a great project worth the trouble since it has all the mechanical components.The odometer shows 13,358 miles, but it likely rolled over and is probably more like 113,358 miles. I have not done anything to this car yet. The car is currently sitting in my garage all covered up and protected from elements. Again, THIS IS A PROJECT CAR. It needs quite a few things done. The body particularly needs quite a bit of restoration. But, if you are good welding, and already have the necessary tools and experience, this car is will make you a lot of cash down the road. These convertibles sell for well over 80k when completed.
Some of the most obvious things that I can point out that need to be done are the following (RESTORATION WORK NOT LIMITED TO LIST BELOW):
a) Car needs new floor pansb)Carneeds trunk floorc)Carhas no breaksd)Caralso needs new soft top.e)Car ismissing some of the exterior chrome trim pieces (interior dash looks phenomenal!).
The car is being SOLD AS IS. NO WARRANTY. NO RETURNS ACCEPTED. I have title for the car. I was able to find the shop manual for this particular vehicle online with the intention of restoring it, but, I just can't find the time to do it, so, I will also include the shop manual with the car (HAVE FUN!).
