for sale

Price: US $62,500.00


This auction is for this full custom chopped and molded 1949 Cadillac two door (model 62) that was made into a hardtop. Gorgeous body lines and built by a tattoo artist in Virginia, nearly thirty years ago. I purchased the car in June of 1997, so I’ve personally owned it for over twenty years. It basically lives indoors, and probably hasn’t been wet more than six times since I’ve owned it. I only wash it with the waterless spray. It really never gets dirty, just dusty. There are many custom features and modifications done to this beautiful car, way too many to describe in this ad. The car was painted Cadillac pearl white in 1994, so the paint is not perfect, but certainly a nice ten footer. The new owner will at some point want to refresh the paint work, but should enjoy it the way it is for quite some time, then take it to the next level. If the new owner is capable of doing the paint work himself, he has a great body to start with.
The engine is a 1994 Chevrolet tune-port out of a 27, 000 mile Z-28, complete with fuel injection, and the 4L60e automatic transmission. The computer was modified by Howell, who also supplied the wiring harness. The drive train does not have more than 30K miles on it in total, and it runs perfect. Power steering, power front disc brakes with a Nova front clip, brand new Generation 4 heat and a/c system, from Vintage Air, just installed. Serpentine belt system. Power windows, G.M. tilt column, White leather Banjo wheel, TEA’s front seats, Pioneer stereo with C/D, brand new floor carpeting just installed, along with new front seat belts. Four brand new Diamondback Radial wide white walls with less than 250 miles on them. Front wheels are wire, while the rears are just chrome, but barely show. The grille is a 1959 Chrysler Imperial, the headlights are Jaguar. The tail-lights are the original Cad units that were sectioned down lower in the quarter panels, and yes, the gas filler is still located behind the left tail-light. The dash is from a Firebird, the shifter is from Lokar. Virginia law, at the time this car was built, required manual access from outside of the car (NO ELECTRIC POPPERS). The outer door handles are from a Renault Fuego. The trunk is fully upholstered to match the inside of the car. The quarter windows slide out, and there are special storage bags in the trunk area to safely store them, the 1/4 windows are Lexan/Plexi.
This beautiful Cadillac is not just a used car, it’s 69 years old, and it’s pearl white paint is 24 years old. I’ve taken great care to keep this car in as good of condition as I could, recently investing in access of $12, 000.00 on updates, but time does take its toll, especially on the paintwork. I believe the paint is lacquer, so it should strip off easily. Also, I’ve never tried to touch up any of the spots that have issues, so that too could be a possibility. I hope anyone interested understands that the car looks great, but there are paint issues that I’d never try to B/S anyone with. My ebay score is perfect, and I strive to keep it that way. At 74 years of age, I’ve decided to get away from the hotrods and customs, or at least make an effort to anyway. I would listen to trades, but would be very picky on what it was. No bikes, trucks, or RV’s! A nice low mileage Maserati Quattroporte 4-door, as partial trade, might tempt me. . or perhaps a 6 cylinder C1 Corvette, that’s not modified. I’m not interested in trading up, only even or down. .
Wire transfer is the only way I accept payment, after a $1000.00 paypal deposit. Moving the car from Myrtle Beach S.C. 29575 is buyers responsibility. If you need a picture of something special, please email me at cliff@cbasley.com I have several photos available that exceed ebays total amount allowed. The car is in Myrtle Beach S.C. 29575 Thank you very much.
