This is the car that defines 1950s cool. A rare factory black 1957 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe Deville hardtop is the ultimate expression from the brand that was truly the Standard of the World. So when it\'s a numbers-matching car with actual miles that\'s as crisp and complete as this one, you\'re likely looking at a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at excellence.
The factory-correct black has a glossy appearance that highlights the shape and the details from an era when designers were in charge at the car companies. And we love how the gray roof matches the gray lower fenders for that added touch of style. This is an intricate design, and so we know you\'re inspecting the pictures for quality. And this one only shows signs of being treated with respect all its life (that\'s what you get when one of these coupes costs as much new as two Bel Air V8 hardtops!) We know you are also looking at all the detail pictures to make sure all that intricate beautiful chrome trim is in place. And we\'re happy to tell you this car is complete and mirror-like from the Dagmar caps all the way down to the jet-inspired taillights. And speaking of the rear section, no one did it better than Cadillac in the \'50s. From the tail fins, to the wraparound bumpers that also house the exhaust, this is pure art on wheels.
The appeal of these sofa-like seats is as clear as black and white, literally. The crisp white with suede-like black inserts and button-top brightwork reminds us all that true class has a timeless elegance. The rest of the interior is nothing but a great coordinating festival of black, white, and chrome. It all has the solid feeling of a well-invested classic, and so this Cadillac upholds its premium nameplate even today. It\'s a correct and detail-oriented look with cool period-correct items that are there for display like the Autronic Eye and AM radio. You also get useful features like the working map lights and power seat. Plus, you\'ll be especially pleased that the power windows are all working smoothly. So you never have to leave the driver\'s seat any time you want to show off this Deville\'s pillarless hardtop profile.
Cadillac\'s 365 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big V8 power. This numbers-matching unit looks fantastically well presented with the blue block and valve covers hiding under the tidy black belts, hoses, and air grabber. The motor fires up readily, and the four-barrel carburetor gives this large hardtop coupe the kind of legs to cruise on the highway. And the dual exhaust has a nice rumble that reminds you of a classic American V8 without jeopardizing the luxury atmosphere. Cadillac pioneered automatic transmissions, and the unit living behind the V8 shifts crisply with that unique Hydramatic feel to it that suggest precision machinery at work. Add in power steering and power brakes, and this makes for an effortless classic cruiser. The final touch are the whitewall tires on the bright Caddy factory wheel covers that complete the black, white, and chrome uniform feeling throughout this impressive classic.
