Specialty Cars Limited
1961 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe
Absolutely one of my favorite cars that I have ever owned! An amazing time capsule with only two owners from new and with the last owner for an incredible 43 years!
Bought new at Altemus Motors on Main Street in Latrobe, PA by Auto Electric & Brake Service in Greensburg, PA; this Cadillac has spent its entire life in a 10-mile radius from where it was bought new.
It is a completely unrestored survivor, with only one fender being repainted prior to 43 years ago. This car has only 30,300 original miles and has a completely unrestored exterior, interior, motor, and trunk. Car also comes with a lot of neat, seldom-seen features that only and original car can have!
It has a factory 390 V8 with an automatic transmission. Finished in beautiful Code 32 Concord Green with a matching green interior. The paint is beautiful, all the brightwork is beautiful, the interior is like new with virtually no wear at all.
I have the Cadillac history report on the car. I am not a Cadillac expert, but it seems to be a pretty low-optioned car, only having door sill guards, signal-seeking radio with power antenna, power-steering brakes, whitewall tires, and a dealer-installed rear defrost.
Everything in this car works as it should -- horn, all lights and signals, all gauges, the radio, and even the washers and rear defrost.
The car has just had a complete servicing, including all fluids, a new rear main seal, the torque converter professionally rebuilt, rebuilt carb, new front wheel cylinders, and brake hoses (I still have the original AC Delco ones), and a thorough going over.
The Caddy is incredible underneath, but please note, it's a PA car since new and was heavily undercoated from new.
The car comes with the original keys, owner's manual, and dealership paperwork. It runs and drives excellent and is as original as a car can be. Even the plastic tag is still in the driver's door and the wood "wedge" for changing the spare tire is still in the trunk! The only thing in the motor that is not original is the upper and lower radiator hoses, but I have NOS hoses coming and an original AC Delco battery.
You will not find a better, more original Series 62 than this one!
