For many older US car fans is a pink Cadillac a homage to the rock "n" roll era, which was shaped by stars like Elvis Presley or Chubby Checker. The luxurious models from Detroit in particular embody the flair of this time like no other. But even younger car fans nowadays turn around immediately when a pink Cadillac drives past them. Hardly any other car is so characteristic and special, and has such a high recognition value as a Cadi from the tailfin era. This example from 1959, which is currently being auctioned on eBay and is just about to break the $ 80.000 mark, has also been lavish by its current owner modified and modernizedto create a unique show car from the already magnificent piece of jewelry.
Pink is beautiful!
It's hard to believe at first, but you can even make modifications to an eye-catcher like a '59 Cadillac so that it can finally fade every Lamborghini or Bugatti next to you. The presence of the road cruiser, which is well over 5 meters long, alone ensures that this car will make the hearts of every car fan beat faster.
But with the retrofitted Airride chassis from AccuAir, which the American sledge has, it looks a bit sportier and more powerful, so that it can hardly be surpassed in terms of street presence. However, we doubt that it will achieve sportier handling by lowering it, because these vehicles have never been designed to swiftly sweep through corners. Another highlight of the classic are the Custom rims with whitewall tires. The rims shine with the sun due to their chrome look, and by the way have something like one Central lock Optics. At least at first glance!
In our opinion, it is a little unnecessary because it is not appropriate white painted roofwhich seems a little out of place. In this case, pink would have been a bit more harmonious in the overall impression. Nevertheless, the Caddy of course remains an absolute eye-catcher, stealing the show from its opponents at every US car meeting.
The interior has been completely renovated.
Massive changes were made in the cockpit. Seats and trunk were made covered with white leather, respectively lined, and in the interior there is even a - in our view also unnecessary - blue ambient lighting. Furthermore, ultra-modern also stopped Digital instruments into the oldies, which, however, fit seamlessly into the dashboard. So nothing stands in the way of a weekend trip or a longer trip with the extraordinary car.
The coupe is powered by a 6,4-liter V8.
A is used to drive the luxurious, 5,63 m long glider 6,4 liter V8 suction gasoline engine with 325 hp. The power is transmitted via a Automatic to the rear wheels. As a result, the 2,2-ton load quickly revs up, and you can still swim quickly in traffic even nowadays. Only narrow mountain passes are definitely not the territory of an old Cadillac, because it is far too long, too wide and too heavy for that.
Our Summary for this 1959 Cadillac Coupé de Ville.
