Lot #948.1 - When wading the sea of muscle cars, sports cars and modifieds, rarely does one come across a quality custom Cadillac. Certainly not one of the caliber of the unbelievable Series 62 convertible presented here. This Series 62 convertible is the personal car of the owner of Car Nutz Customz in Bellevue, WA and was built to be a jaw dropping show piece to display what his company can do. The car was completely stripped to bare metal and the acres of Cadillac excellence refinished in sensational mile-deep, show quality, Jet Black paint that is contrasted by a two tone black and white interior and a white softtop. The spirit of the iconic design was kept but updated and enhanced. Highlights include custom made 24" wheels, shaved door handles, shaved badges, replaced by subtle Mike Lavalee air brushed emblems and a killer "in the weeds" lowered stance. The full custom interior features tailored suede inserts with white stitching, suede dash pad with contrasting white dash panel, full Dakota digital guages and a custom audio system comprised of a Kenwood deck in a custom lower console, MTX subs and MTX amp. The ride height is fully adjustable via Slam Specialties airbags hooked to dual compressors and two 5-gallon air tanks controlled by AccuAir ride height sensors and a driver adjustable AccuAir ride height controller. This makes it easy to effortlessly lift the suspension for normal driving and then slam it when you get to the show. Reliability was important so the original 390 was rebuilt but left stock other than an upgraded exhaust system and front disc brakes were added for improved stopping. If a hard to find custom Cadillac is what you're looking for, then look no further than this Killer '62. This Caddy stands apart not only from other Cadillacs, but most other customs as well.
