This is a Hot Rod conversion done by a Shop in Arizona over 20 years ago, it is old school.

Nice Start to a Hot Rod, Rat Rod or Restomod. The Body is all stock.

Radio, antenna, Not hooked up.
Head Lights, Tails lights, brake lights, driving lights and turn signals all work. Turn signal lights on original dash work.
Glove box liner was missing. Replacements are inexpensive on ebay.
Car has a A/C compressor, turns on, not getting cold, have not looked in to it.Red Hoses on the rear of fire wall go to the blowers in the rear window. The rear fans turn on.
The Cadillac is also fitted with a tilt steering wheel that is not stock to the car. Works well. Horn not hooked up.
Wipers work, they are a little sloppy, they changed from vacuum to elect motor, needs arm adjustment.I have the original wiper knob that was removed at the dash. They installed a toggle switch for the wipers.
New parts:
New factory reproduction Fuel Tank, Hard lines, Fuel pump, filters, and Edlebrock Carburetor.New Power Steering pump and belts.Original drum power vacuum brakes overhauled, turned drums, rebuilt cylinders, springs, arc riveted pads.
All 4 Power windows work. There is a short in the drivers switch for the passenger window. Works from the passenger switch.Windows need felt and rubber seals.Front Wind shield has a couple BB shots at driver side. For a rat rod, it works.All other glass appears to be original to the car and in good condition.
Original color was a Sea foam green? Red paint looks good from 20 feet. Runs, drips, errors, fish eyes, and pealing in a couple spots. Poor prep. Perfect for Rat rod. See pictures.
Body:Has elbow dents on the fenders, door dings. A few small rust bubbles on the passengers side top, and trunk lid. See pictures.
The trunk lid latches properly, needs a new lock and key to be installed. The inside of the trunk is solid, see picture.
The doors, hinges and latches work, they need adjustment. Fill, and blocking out the body, adjustments by a good paint and body shop if you want it perfect.Again, if your going to Rat Rod it, it's perfect. Sand and primer it up or leave it as is.
Chrome:Original chrome is all on the car. Some pitting, door dings in the side molding. Ding in the Dagmar and front bumper.
Rear bumper was welded up where the original exhaust exited at the ends. The exhaust dumps out behind the rear tire.I have original replacement bumper ends available to the winning bidder.
Bumper ends are not a part of the auction. See picture:
All of the chrome is good condition for cores if your going to re chrome for show.
Interior:Seats have covers. Head liner is in good condition. Carpet was replaced some time ago. New replacement kits are inexpensive on ebay.
Dash cover, door panels, and the rest of the interior is how I received the car. See pictures

This is the lowest price it will ever be as we keep knocking off details listed above and working on it, the price is going to go up.

The Coupe has a new California registration just paid up for the year.
Cadillac has been driven to local events, and shows. Thumbs up every where, and its something different people don't see all the time.
