_____________________

In 1947, Cadillac was finally beginning to get back into the swing of post-war car production. Only 8,500 60 Specials were produced that year, with bodies built by Fleetwood. The 60 Special was essentially a small limousine, featuring a 4 inch longer wheel base and 2 inch longer rear door. Needless to say, it offered more than adequate room for rear riding passengers who could stretch their legs as they pleased. The 346 CI motor had been in production since 1936 and was a bulletproof motor by this point - it had actually been tested in tanks, so maybe we should say "literally" bulletproof.

This '47 Cadillac is a special car, as it had always been owned in California and was a 64,000 mile survivor prior to its very nicely-done restoration. The car was stripped to bare metal during the restoration and received a beautiful two tone cream over green paint job. All of the chrome (and there is a lot of it) was stripped and re-chromed and the stainless has all been polished out to show condition. The car has excellent body lines, nice glass, and nice new reproduction bias ply tires to round out the look.

One of the most astonishing things about the car is the interior. All of the painted wood and the seat covers are original to the car and in outstanding condition. The wool carpeting and headliner are new and all materials are correct to the original appointments found in these fine motoring cars. The interior is very luxurious and shows wonderful preservation of original materials and excellent craftsmanship with the new work.

This full classic is an excellent running and driving car. The 346 CI motor fires right up and hums along with the smooth-shifting automatic transmission right behind it. Both were rebuilt during the restoration and provide a reliable motoring experience. The engine compartment is correctly detailed per original car specifications and shows quite well.

For those looking for a beautiful full classic to use and show, this fantastic example will provide years of enjoyment to its new owner.
