I have a very solid 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine for sale.  The 331 V-8 runs well and sounds good.  The previous owner rebuilt the engine about 5 years ago.  I don't have the specifics on the rebuild.  The trans does slip severly in forward gear.  Reverse works fine.  The power steering and brakes are good.  The miles are 63,396.  This one came from dry Montana and has a really solid body and undercarriage.  The bumpers were rechromed some years ago but still shine well.  Both front door glasses  have cracks but don't leak.  The rest of the glass is good.  The paint is the correct code 9 which is Cobalt Blue.  A rare color for a Limo.  The clear coat is peeling in many places.  The interior is also the original colors of 2-tone blue cloth.  Much of the interior has been redone in the correct patterns.  The headliner is very good.  The seats are nice.  The carpet is worn.  The door panels were also redone.  The front door panels have a speaker hole in them to accept modern speakers.  The previous owner installed a modern sound system with hardware in the trunk.  There is a remote for the system included.  I have only played the new-style radio and it works fine.  The power windows are not currently working.  It has a decent set of correct '53 Cad hubcaps on it.  This one does have the original jump seats in the rear. 

     This 1953 Cadillac Limo needs a few things but is a good one to restore!  I had a local "old-time" mechanic estimate $700-800 to redo the forward band/rebuild the trans.  Then paint it and you're driving down the road in true style.  The interior is already pretty nice as-is.  A dark blue 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine would be a very impressive car to drive and ride in!!

     Please feel free to ask any questions.  In-person inspection is encouraged.  Sold as-is.

Cadillac teases production ELR ahead of Detroit Auto Show

Tue, 18 Dec 2012 10:14:00 EST

General Motors has just confirmed that the 2014 Cadillac ELR will make its official debut next month at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. We've already seen the ELR testing earlier this year using the same range-extended electric drive system as the Chevrolet Volt, and based on the shadowy image above, we're happy to see that the coupe's styling has stayed pretty true to 2009 Converj Concept.
The two-door ELR will be built alongside the Volt at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant starting later next year. Aside from this info, Cadillac has remained tight-lipped on the specific details of the car. But all that will all change on January 15.
Until then, all we have to offer you is the press release posted after the jump.

Cadillac Elmiraj Concept brings big coupe style to Pebble Beach [w/videos]

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 22:15:00 EST

Two years ago, Cadillac absolutely floored us with the debut of its gorgeous Ciel concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. And since that droptop four-door's debut, we've seen plenty of its design language worked into the latest Cadillac products. Now, we're seriously hoping that history will repeat itself with this stunning new Elmiraj coupe concept, which makes its first public appearance in Monterey this week.
Cadillac states that the Elmiraj concept simply showcases the next step forward for the brand's Art & Science design DNA, and doesn't necessarily preview an upcoming model. But if you told us the Elmiraj was a conceptual look at the next-generation CTS Coupe, or a smaller, two-door version of a new flagship, we'd believe you. At 207 inches long, 76 inches wide and 55 inches tall, its dimensions are only slightly larger than the current two-door CTS.
Regardless of what the Elmiraj does or does not become, it's certainly a fantastic modern interpretation of the classic GT formula with its short front overhang, long hood, rakish roofline and petite rear deck. The strong character lines running along the sides and exaggerated 22-inch wheels round out the beautiful coupe, and Cadillac's signature vertical LED lighting elements are found at the front and rear. Also take note: the badge on the grille is a crest without a wreath, basically confirming our earlier report.

Cadillac ATS Coupe headed for Detroit reveal

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:01:00 EST

Cadillac wouldn't be Cadillac without its two-door models. But the XLR has been discontinued for over four years now, the Elmiraj concept may never see production and the future of the CTS Coupe is still up in the air. That leaves just the ELR, which may not be conventional enough for traditional Cadillac coupe buyers. Fortunately a new coupe is coming along to fill the void.
According to Edmunds, Cadillac will reveal the new ATS coupe just a couple of months from now at the Detroit Auto Show. Expected to mechanically mirror the existing ATS sedan, the new coupe will also more conventionally resemble its four-door counterpart than the CTS, whose coupe version was distinguished by a rakishly sloping roofline.
Expect the same choice of engines to carry over, with a 2.5-liter four serving as the base engine, and both a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6 offering more power for those looking for that extra bit of oomph. Following the Detroit reveal, sources anticipate the ATS coupe to go on sale next summer.
