Class up Your Garage With This $155,000 Fleet Of Vintage Cadillacs
That’s a lot of chrome.
Old Cadillacs tend to go for surprisingly cheap, considering they were once the kings of the American highway. Even if they're in pretty good shape today, they don't demand the kind of crazy cash that Hemi-powered Chryslers or spotless fastback Mustangs do. To spend a ton of money on old Cadillacs, you typically gotta buy a few. This small collection is such an opportunity to purchase more than one tail finned land yacht—five of them, in fact.
All the cars are located in some sort of garage or parking structure in Glendale, California. The cars for sale are as follows:
- White 1959 Series 62 Convertible
- Black 1960 Series 62 Convertible
- Silver 1959 Series 62 Six Window Sedan
- Blue 1954 Series 62 Sedan
- Maroon 1976 Eldorado Convertible
All of the cars have between 45,000 and 110,000 miles on them, besides the white convertible who's mileage is not listed. All of them are also in pretty good shape, the seller says they have been sitting for a while, though. He lists a series of small issues with each car. In addition to the new battery, fuel, and brakes the seller suggests you bring, I would also grab about a dozen sponges. All of these cars are caked with dust.
All of the Series 62 cars from 1959 to 1960 are equipped with Cadillac's 6.4-liter (390 cubic-inch) V8, which produced 325 horsepower. The 1954 sedan has either a 5.4-liter V8, or a 6.0-liter V8. It isn't stated in the ad which one. The maroon '76 Eldorado has either Cadillac's legendary 500 cubic-inch, 8.2-liter V8—producing just 210 horsepower in 1976—or a slightly smaller 472 cubic-inch, 7.7-liter engine. The 500 was standard, however, so it likely has that one. Needless to say, all of these cars have automatic transmissions.
At a firm $155,000, I think the price for all five cars is a bit steep. The seller values two of the cars (it's not clear which) at around $60,000 apiece, which just seems too high considering they all need a little work to get running. And before you ask, the listing says they will not be sold individually.
Maybe if we just say please, the buyer will reconsider and sell them individually. Never doubt the power of the magic word.
