Cadillac Stash Uncovered In Alabama Warehouse!

Cadillac Collection

This small collection of Cadillacs has been sitting for decades! The seller claims that they were owned by a prominent family that would just park their old Cadillac once they purchased a new one. The cars are all fairly low-mileage and they all have a nice coat of dust. Just just featured one of the cars, but I wanted to mention the other two too. Keep reading to see what each one looks like out in the daylight. The photos alone make these worth a look!

1962 Cadillac Fleetwood

First, we have this 1962 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special. It was purchased new by the family and was taken out of service in 1978 after covering 24k miles. The most interesting aspect of this car could be the fact that it was ordered without a radio. Apparently, the matriarch of the family didn’t want her chauffeur getting distracted… It’s listed here on eBay without reserve. Bidding is up to $6k and the auction ends shortly.

1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

Next, there’s this 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. It was also purchased new, but it wasn’t parked until 1985 with 63k miles. The dusty photos are fun to look at, but luckily the seller hosed these first two off so you can see what going on with the paint and body. You can view the eBay listing here. Bidding is up to $4,500 with only 6 hours to go!

1941 Cadillac Series 62 Sedan

And finally, my favorite of the trio, a 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Sedan. This one was also purchased new and was on the road until 1976! It is only showing 64k miles on the odometer and I love that seat material. Take a look here on eBay where bidding is only up to $3,650. They are all impressive, but which one would you want to drag home?

    Pre-emptive strike, like I did on the other post from this group: “PRESERVATION CLASS”. Sorry for the capslock (sorry/not sorry). Had I made better Life Choices, I would roll them in *my* theoretical photogenic brick warehouse on the outskirts of (nearby southern city) to bask in collection of old vehicles to natter around with on weekends with grandkids (also theoretical)

    I want them all.

    How lovely to be so rich you just put your throw offs in your warehouse for later…

    I know that most of us like to comment on how lousy the standard photography in car ads generally is, but does anyone else think that these photos look like they were “professionally” done? They seem almost artfully staged. . . The clever use of depth of field with the outer edges just out of focus looks great, but it feels (to me, maybe you agree?) as though this is a tall tale, and an inventive seller is putting one over on the prospective buyers.

      Is that a vintage Leica he’s shooting with? Held to his eye, it almost looks as though it’s a genuine 35mm film camera. Who does this when selling cars today?

        Not necessarily, Mike H. — Google “Leica M8 10.8 MP Digital Rangefinder Camera”, which _is_ discontinued, but is a recent digital camera that still goes for about 1300 used, so probably a high-end digital like my IT Manager friend got himself a couple of years ago. The hairline and glasses on top of his head might indicate he is the great-great grandscion of the generation that pushed that ’41 back in the warehouse in ’52 (if there’s a Caddy that didn’t make it) or ’62, when the dealership wouldn’t give them enough in trade for it. “Tell Jeeves to park it in front of the corner where all the boating supplies from the summer home are stored, and those ghastly marble statues that Aunt Ophelia brought back from her last trip overseas.”

    You don’t have to be rich to do this with cars. My neighbors don’t wany anyone to get any use out of something they paid for. They will not even recycle. When Jack became ill, his 1953 and 1954 Corvettes sat in the garage for years untill his death. There is still a 1956 Chevy sitting in there. After Jack’s death, the family hired a dumpster and dumped all Jack’s vintage signs, shop equipment, trophies and parts. I was out of town, sadly, or I would have been all over that dumpster. (Perhaps they realized that and timed it that way). No, I don’t know what happened to the Corvetts. The 1954 was a show car and had only a couple thousand miles on it. On the bright side, thinking like this is why a lot of cars have survived.

    Had an emerald green ’66 Fleetwood Brougham with caramel vinyl padded top and all caramel interior. Seats were leather/brocaded cloth and it had fold down writing tables on the back of the front seat and flip up footrests in the back floorboard. It got 11 mpg. Sold it to some fool in Germany. He sent a car carrier up from Miami to Orlando and carted it away. I remember a night of Crown & Coke with my fine wife in the backseat. Uh Oh… I’ll get busted for that one…….

    I actually met with the owners of these cars in their warehouse that they’re having to vacate because they sold the building. They had contacted me about some furniture, but these are legit barn finds. Wanted to buy them myself, but they said they were “taking bids” on them. The story on them is very much true.
