THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This 1949 Cadillac Series 61 Club Coupe is a beautiful example of Cadillac's fastback Sedanette model. Finished in elegant Triumph Blue Metallic over a grey fabric interior, this grand Coupe is in very good overall condition. After laying dormant for years, this handsome Cadillac benefitted from a restoration in 2009, bringing it to its current presentation. The metallic blue paintwork suits the car nicely and shines brightly like the extensive chrome work adorning the exterior. Inside, the period-correct grey cloth interior is in very good condition and retains some original pieces as well. Following its largely cosmetic restoration in 2009, the 331 cubic-inch V8 engine was overhauled in 2011 and fitted with a new exhaust system. The brakes and other mechanical components were tended to as well. More recently, the fuel system was completely refurbished, from rebuilding the carburetor to cleaning the gas tank and all the steps, hoses, and apparatus between. Offered from a prestigious and well-known East Coast collection, this Series 61 Cadillac Club Coupe is a striking example of the legendary marque's elegant fastback model, ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next owner.
