Vehicle Story

This 1948 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is finished in Horizon Blue over red leather and is one of 5,450 built for the year. The selling dealer recently purchased the car out of long-term storage and is powered by a rebuilt 346ci V8 matched to a refreshed 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Factory features include a Hydro-Lectric convertible top, full carpeting, power windows, heater and defroster, original radio, extensive chrome brightwork, hydraulic brakes, and more. This Series 62 is offered by the selling dealer from California with a clear title in the owner's name.

The Series 62 received various post-war changes in 1948, including the first tail fins, inspired by the vertical stabilizers of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighter plane, a new lower profile, wider stance, the full integration of the front fenders with the doors, a simpler three-row egg-crate grille, rocker panel moldings, and more. This car is finished in its factory shade of Horizon Blue and was repainted prior to going into storage, while the Hydra-electric convertible top is upholstered in tan canvas with a glass rear window.  

Additional design features include gravel guards, rear fender skirts, directional turn signals, chrome Chevrons below the taillights, and small hub caps on steel wire wheels wearing Firestone whitewall tires.

The red leather bench seats were reupholstered prior to storage, as were pleated leather door cards and full carpeting. A full-size spare is housed in the trunk, and a color-matching boot for the top will go with the car.

The drum-style instrument cluster was a one-year-only design change in 1948, with a 110 mph speedometer and the odometer showing just under 78,500 miles, though true mileage is unknown. Other interior equipment includes a factory AM radio, analog clock, power windows, and a heater and defroster. 

The factory 346ci "flathead" V8 engine was rebuilt according to a prior owner and is mated to a refreshed 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The Series 62 was equipped from the factory with a dual downdraft two-barrel carburetor with an automatic choke.

Stopping is managed by "Super-Safe" hydraulic brakes. Additional photos showing the condition of the underside are included in the gallery.

The car has its original engine and it runs great. There is no rust or real flaws and no known modifications. We purchased the car as it is from a collector. Thanks for your interest and bids Z18team

Does the car run perfectly? Is this the original engine and was any work done? Is there any rust or blemishes dents etc on the body? What modifications if any were done to the vehicle? When was the body work/restoration done and are there papers to the work? Is this part of a collection
