1941 CADILLAC 60 CONVERTIBLE
Cadillac built over 3,000 2-door convertibles in 1941, and only built 397 4-door convertibles. Cadillac of the 40’s, from Sylmar, California.
.Structurally, the car consisted of chassis, power train, lead body work, custom wheels, and a custom steering wheel. It also included a 516 cubic inch rebuilt Cadillac motor. I had the motor rebuilt in a high performance manner and added Edelbrock Fuel Injections. In addition, I rebuilt the transmission, added a custom racing rear end with disc brakes, and posi traction built by Hoppers in Sun Valley, California. The rear end alone cost $9,000. The chassis includes an air bag suspension; the frame is extremely reinforced to keep it from twisting. I also installed fabricated steel beams inside the body between the two doors, which were welded to the frame as additional reinforcement to keep the body from bowing, which are not visible from the exterior. The frame is already C notched. It sits about one inch off of the ground. A lot of chrome was shaved off of the body, brake booster was installed under the dashboard, and the trunk was set up to open electronically. all front rear suspension parts are brand new, steering parts including the column and steering box are also brand new, complete air ride system, vintage air conditioning, wild wood four disk brake system, custom billet wheels and steering wheel, four bucket seat (not upholstered) and .complete rubber kit
The bows on the convertible top were all slightly chopped; making the top look chopped when it’s up, and the main bow which is oak wood is also brand new, I was getting ready to start the cosmetics when the recession caused a big setback with my business in 2008. That being said, I had no choice but to wrap up the project and store it.
I have a paper trail for everything that was primarily invested with four different companies. I have approximately $180,000 invested which we have receipts for. Being around the custom car industry for so long, I know a loss financially is inevitable when selling a custom vehicle. vogue tires are not included, Bridgestone with only 4,000 miles are included with the vehicle.
