Description for Cadillac Other 1958

This 1958 Series 62 Coupe was shipped from Detroit to Windsor Ontario in December 1957. I have the build sheet. From Windsor it went by rail to Victoria British Columbia where it was sold as a special order by Morrison Chev Olds (no longer in business but I talked to andexchanged emailswith the owner Newell Morrison before he died two years ago.) Newell helped me track down the name of the original owner - alsodeceased - but I was able to contact the original owner's nephew who was with the original owner when he sold the car to the family I bought it from. The nephew also gave me a photo of the original owner of this 1958 Cadillac, tanding infront of the car. So the first two owners each cherished the car for about 20 years each. Then I bought it,restored it and also cherished it.
The car was rust free and an excellent five-footer when I bought it. People who knowCanadian cars will all attest that a Victoria B.C. car is the next best thing to a California or Arizona car - it rarely snows in Victoria and they don't put rock salt on the roads. When I got the car,there was some hazing on the bumpers and some light pitting on the chrome. The interior was excellent and still had the original plastic covers on both from and rear seats. The car ran well after a tune up and shifted fine after a transmission service. I decided to paint the car and also restore it at that time. I had NO IDEA what I was getting into.
I took the car to a Cadillac restoration specialist in Sun Valley CA. - Ralph Kaiser of Vintage Vehicle Service (some of his cars have won at Pebble Beach) restored this car for me, tep by step. The car was repainted - being careful to match the original color. All the chrome was removed, eplated, nd the stainless was removed and polished. I replaced the interior upholstery carpets with original matching materials from SMS. All rubber was replaced. Allsafety glass on the windows was replaced with new properly coded safety glass. Transmission was rebuilt, ngine redone (timing chain etc) but not valves - they were fine. Gas tank cleaned and lines replaced. Shocks replaced. Water pump, enerator,solenoid,carburetor -everything was rebuild to factory specifications. Anodized aluminum grill completely disassembled, its removed, olished and re-anodized.Itwas a nut and bolt frame on restoration. Why frame on? My restoration expert, alph Kaiser,does not believe in frame off restorations of rust free cars. He feels that it's extremely difficult to get the body back on the frame as well as the factory was able to do it. Everything works on the car - clock, adio, indshield squirters, eater-defroster - everything! All new Coker radial whitewalls with less than 500 miles on them.
After the restoration was complete, entered the car in the Cadillac LaSalle Club's Grand National inAnaheim in 2006. My car won first place in its class with a 99.5 score. The judges took off half a point because I had mistakenly redone the trunk with material they deemed to be "more plush than original". So immediately after the show, tore out all the trunk material and had anoriginal trunk kit by Jenkins in North Carolina professionally installed in the trunk (photo included).
The carwas featured on the cover of the Cadillac LaSalle Club's monthly magazine, he Self Starter - with an article inside documenting some interesting parts of the restoration.
Since 2007, he car has been driven 10 miles once a week and serviced and refreshed every six months. In total much more than $100,000 was spent on the restoration of this car. Naturally this was not an investment project. It was a passion project and the outcome as many car experts have told me is that I most likely have thefinest 1958 Series Sixty Coupe in the country.
And now I'm selling it because I have only one space for this car in my garage and I want to restore another car. That's the reason I'm selling it.
