Big One: 1957 Cadillac Sedan DeVille

caddy1

This is an awful lot of metal for the price! This 1957 Cadillac (in pink and white, no less) is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where it’s evidently been baking in the sun for quite some time. The seller says it was bought for him by his daughter, but as he puts it “the boss says it has to go.” He had the car running four years ago, and installed new brakes at some point. The fuel tank needs replacing or repair, and problems with a passenger side window has led to some rust in the floor on that side. The chrome is said to be in great shape and the car looks really straight. At a buy-it-now price of $2,400 here on eBay and even lower bids being solicited, I wish this were a lot closer to North Carolina. At the buy-it-now price that’s only $0.45/pound–sounds like a deal to me!

    Look it has an alternator….in 1957?
    I like it

    Wow this seems like a no brainer! New alternator, new carb, sun baked straight panels. Love it!

    Really nice price for this. Very clean body, engine looks good, all glass is there and also the tail lights (one is always missing)

    $2,400 “buy it now” seems like a STEAL! Surprised an overseas buyer hasn’t snatched it up!…….oh wait, he doesn’t have it listed WORLDWIDE!?! He should be able to get big money for that car (despite it being a 4 door) to an overseas buyer!

    Always liked the 4 door HT body – much of the style of the 2 dr without the ridiculous price. This was even true in 1974 when I bought a ’57 Chevy 4 dr ht for $150. The two door would have been $600-$1000 or more.

    This Caddy is a good candidate for a light sand/ matte clearcoat, quickie interior, get it running and enjoy restoration.

    Does sound like a steal. Too bad it’s so far away from California, then too, my garage is not long enough to accommodate the boat.

    Every time I see a 57 or 58 Cadillac it makes me sad.

    I only remember that I could not save a 1958 Limo, rust free, but the price of steel/scrap was at an all-time high of $660 a ton. So it went into the crusher.
    It did not go easy I was told.
    A real b**** to get this one crushed.
