1962 Cadillac: Seems Familiar

1962 Cadillac

I’m not sure why, but the location where this Cadillac was dug out seems familiar to me. I know we have featured a seller in the past that found a stash of Cadillacs and Lincolns in an old barn, but as I was hunting through old posts, I couldn’t seem to find it! If this is the same seller, they must have found one of the largest collections of old Caddys and Lincolns ever, to still be pulling cars out. And if memory serves correctly, they seem to become more realistic with their asking prices. Robert R found this Caddy here on craigslist in Rockford, Illinois for $2,800. This finned classic is going to need a lot of work, but looks complete. Rust will definitely be an issue though. So do any of you happen to remember the seller and post I am thinking of, or does this barn just happen to look similar to barn?

    It looked familiar to me the instant I saw it , the 59 Caddy and the way they are parked caught my eye

    This ‘bucket-o-rust’ is a parts car. He may have driven it in there, but he will not drive it out.

    well, Ed, goes to show you can’t kill ’em . sure will look great restored, I am not a Caddy conessuier , it would take a ” bucket” of $$ to get this back to its former glory.. One thing that puzzles me tho, with this vehicle and others like it, one would think a seller would clean off the dead leaves, both off the car, and under the wipers . to me it shows the lack of care it had

      Good point. A hose or broom would do a lot for some cars.
