1962 Cadillac Coupe DeVille: Fins and Patina

Cadillac Coupe

Here’s a promising 1962 Cadillac that’s been parked since 1972 and reported to have only 27,000 miles. The asking price of $6500 could be reasonable, although the seller doesn’t provide much information. They do claim to have a lot of extra pieces for it, but again they don’t offer much in the way of details. If it’s a California car, so perhaps there’s not much rust. I suppose someone might revive this old Caddy and flip it to Europe, but wouldn’t this be a grand old driver? You could upgrade the brakes and such, but mostly just do the necessary mechanicals and enjoy it. It’s listed here on craigslist in Inland Empire, California. What’s better than a finned Cadillac with patina?

    Highly doubt the mileage claim….Would bet that it has flipped over at least once. This one was driven hard and then dumped in 1972 because it was an old used car IMHO . I don’t see a bargain there at all. I own a 62 Caddy coupe and know what it’ll $$ take to straighten this one out. At this entry fee , you’ll be hanging upside down in moments…..

    On the bright side, if it’s not rusty that’s always a plus….

    where do people come up with the stuff? 27k original miles? try 227k miles, not worth the asking price.

    27K–really? I got a bridge to sell in Brooklyn too.

    I remember buying a good running green one with red leather interior in 1972 for $400 :)

    Due to lack of grammar and proper punctuation marks I rule that this is not an original 27,000 mile car. Period.
    If you believe that, OR if it even matters as beat up as this thing is, then I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell to you, for very reasonable.

    I have a ’62 series 62 DeVille Sedan that is in better shape (and would run and drive with fresh gas) and I think it’s worth half of what he’s asking…..

    Price is nuts. This thing is junk. Cool junk, yes. But junk even for free.
