Lot #137 - This car has been beautifully restored. It is a stock original California Black Plate car that was in storage for 41 years in Palm Springs and restored in 2014-2015. The original purchase papers for this car come with the car as well as the original owner's manual. This is a nicely optioned Cadillac. It has the 365ci V8 with dual range Hydramatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, 6-way power seat, Wonder Bar signal-seeking radio, power antenna and tinted glass. The power seat motor works but doesn't move the seat and the original radio does not work but a new AM/FM/CD radio with remote was installed in the glove compartment. This coupe is in clean, beautiful condition. It has a straight and solid, rust-free Southern California desert body with stunning, new off-white paint with clear coat. The stainless trim has been polished. Both bumpers have been re-chromed. The original pot metal trim and chrome is in very good condition with minimal pitting or wear. The Cadillac has a stunning, new, completely restored blue interior. The factory original correct reproduction Cadillac cloth and vinyl were used. The seats, door panels, seat back panels, dash pad, headliner and carpeting were completely rebuilt over solid floors. It has a detailed jack and spare tire. Mechanically, this '57 Cadillac is a very sound car that runs strong and drives well. It received a complete valve job with hardened seats. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly. All mechanical components have been replaced or rebuilt to insure safe and dependable driving. This includes the radiator, water pump, hoses, belts, starter, fuel pump, generator and carburetor as well as the dual exhaust system from the engine to the back bumper. The gas tank was relined. It has all new brake system, rebuilt power booster, new shocks, and a complete new front suspension. It has been completely serviced, fluids, tune-up and has a new set of correct size, bias-ply tires.
