When released in 1955, the Series 62 Cadillac Coupe DeVille was the favoured vehicle of American's rich and famous, from youthful rock-and-roll stars to graying bankers. A product of the renowned car designer Harley Earl, the the elegant lines, prominent fins and bumpers and innovative low-slung body secured the '55 Coupe DeVille's position as true a motoring classic. The large, powerful V-8 and smooth shifting Hydra-Matic automatic ensured the car's refinement wasn't confined to the interior.
This particular vehicle has an interesting history. Ol' School Garage purchased it from the second owner who had enjoyed the car for many years. Except for the paint, which has been resprayed in the factory Mist Green, the car is all original. This originality no doubt accounts for the cars 'staring' roles in the motion pictures Lolita and Inventing the Abbotts. Documentation with the car also states that the car has won a number of trophies in its class (trophies in the boot to prove it) and made many appearances at public events and photo shoots. We don't doubt this, as the car has been a very popular choice with pin-up models and photographers since we've owned it.
The original interior, although clean and serviceable, is showing its age. We were going to re-trim it, but we decided to leave it all original...for the time being at least.
