Vehicle Story

This 1941 Cadillac Series 62 is one of 3,100 convertible coupes produced for the model year and a multiple award winner, including CCCA 1st Prize, an AACA Senior Award, and First Place at the 1995 AACA show in Hershey. Finished in Oceano Blue and subject to an older restoration, the car was brought to concourse standards and has been maintained since. Features include a vacuum-operated convertible top, leather interior, wood grain dashboard, and heater, with power provided by a 346ci flathead V8 engine backed with a 3-speed manual transmission. Located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, this 1941 Series 62 convertible is offered for sale on a clean Missouri title.

Refinished in Oceano Blue from the car's original shade of Valcour Maroon, all the original brightwork is retained including chrome side spears behind the front and rear wheels, side hood vents, taillight bezels, and an egg-crate style front grille. An AACA Senior Award badge is affixed to the grille with the Cadillac Crest and lettering on the front of the hood. The tan convertible top is power-operated and equipped with a glass rear window.

Factory 15" red wheels feature Cadillac hubcaps that are wrapped in Firestone 7 - 15 whitewall tires. The ride is supported by an independent front suspension with stopping power provided by drum brakes all around.

The carpeting, bench seats, door panels, and visors are all outfitted in tan with the convertible boot in a lighter shade of tan. Brightwork is featured on the inside door handles, window cranks, vent window levers, dashboard, interior windshield trim, door sills, and at the bottom of each door panel.

The wood-grained dashboard houses a speedometer, radio, and clock.  Additional gauges include temperature, battery, gas, and oil pressure with a control for the defroster below. The factory 2-spoke wheel is retained with a chrome center ring for the horn and the transmission is shifted through a column-mounted shifter. Currently, the odometer reads approximately19K miles, 300 of which have been added by the seller.

The 346ci Flathead V8 was factory rated at 150 horsepower when new, and is paired to a 3-speed manual transmission. A Stromberg carburetor manages the air and fuel mixture and all components, hardware and wiring are factory correct. The seller states that the most recent service includes an oil change in 2021.

@DannnyInNJ – I know all those thinking of bidding have a lot of questions. In an effort to help everyone involved, I want to say I remember looking this car over at a Hershey show some years ago. Some cars stand out in your memory (a perfectly restored '63 TBird called simply the "Red Roadster" seen recently comes immediately to mind) because you take the time to give them a real once-over. I recall asking the attendant about the original color (listed in the description as Valcour Maroon) and asking if there were any photos of it that way (and being told sadly not that they had there, at that time). When I saw it this car was absolutely Concours quality. So for those asking about things like rusting and pitting etc - at that point in time I can tell you NONE of those type of things were an issue. It was perfect, stem to stern as presented. As long as the owner took only "reasonably" good care as I'd expect considering the folks connected to the car that I met that day I can't imagine it is any different today. I am jealous - if I had the garage space in my climate controlled storage I'd snap this up in a heartbeat. Of course, I'd also call an artist I know to order up a lot of Valcour Maroon paint too! It does in NO WAY require it; I'd just feel obligated. ...

Thank you for your reflection and memory regarding my 1941 Cadillac. Your assumption, regarding the subsequent care and maintenance is absolutely correct. This automobile is as stunning as it was when you personally saw it at the Hershey event.
