1956 Cadillac 7533 IMPERIAL SEDAN Formal Limo
If you are inclined to restore a 1956 Cadillac, this is the one you want. This is the Formal 7533 Limo with the electric divider window and Black Leather front seat for the chauffeur.
My father bought it in Bakersfield California in the early 1980s with the intention of restoring it himself. After he passed in 1988, I too was exited about the idea of rolling down the street in the backseat of the 1956 Cadillac Limo, changing radio stations from the backseat and attending functions "Corleone Funeral" style .... well, life had other plans for me and the car still sits with 70,000 original miles waiting for someone to restore her properly.
The Rear "Opera Window" was missing for a time and the rear seat material was damaged. I found a perfect 1956 Limo replacement window and had it installed. Steele Rubber didn't have a listing for the rear window weather strip, so I sent them mine and they made a pattern. They sent me a new rubber that is in the trunk if needed.
It started and ran beautifully in the 1980s when we acquired it, but I have not tried to start it again in 30 years. Original drivetrain (with batwing cleaner).
A very original and honest car. CA Black Plates (EQE) couldn't be cooler. Body number 133 out of 955 produced.
Has not been tagged since 1967 and is currently registered "Non-Op" with a Pink in my name.
VERY original, honest and complete car ready for complete restoration.

Aside from the new General Motors offerings, there's not a whole lot of action going on in the fullsize SUV segment. That doesn't seem to be stopping GM from pushing the envelope in the market as Automotive News is reporting that the automaker is looking to introduce some new powertrain options into the Chevy Tahoe (and Suburban), GMC Yukon (and Yukon XL) and the Cadillac Escalade - all have been redesigned for the 2015 model year.

Now, we already know that GM and Ford are collaborating on nine- and ten-speed transmissions for a broad range of applications (including the big SUVs), but this new report says that GM is also considering other options as a way to one-up the competition and, of course, to optimize fuel economy. AN quotes Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for GM trucks, as saying that "interesting powertrain technologies" are coming including a return of a hybrid SUV and possibly even a diesel engine. Although it sounds like the latter could come down to how customers respond to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel.
The 2014 Cadillac CTS made a big splash last week at the New York Auto Show, but now that we've seen the sedan, we can start to wonder about whether coupe and wagon versions are in the cards. According to Edmunds, Cadillac is at least considering bringing back the CTS Coupe for a second generation, which seems like an even better chance since the brand's global marketing director, Jim Vurpillat, was quoted as saying that the car was the top-selling luxury coupe in the industry.

Of course, this goes against reports we heard last year that Caddy's coupe and wagon would live on just not under the CTS name, but the interview with Vurpillat has us hopeful for a next-generation CTS Coupe. If it does come to fruition, we would expect the new two-door to have a largely unique exterior design like the current CTS Coupe, to echo that of intended rivals like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and even the high-dollar BMW 6 Series.
Remember when the Cadillac CTS Coupe debuted, and we were all like, "Oh hello there?" Well, don't expect the same thing to happen when the new ATS Coupe is unveiled - these brand new (overexposed) spy shots show a two-door that's decidedly more sedate than the angular yet curvaceous and all-around good-looking CTS Coupe. This isn't to say that the smaller Caddy Coupe won't be attractive - the four-door version is plenty pretty, to be sure - it just likely won't have that extra somethin'-somethin' to truly set it apart from the sedan.
Fine, then. We don't doubt that the two-door ATS will be just as enjoyable to drive as its sedan sibling, with a lot of the mechanical stuff likely carrying over unchanged. That includes the powertrain options, meaning buyers will be able to choose from the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four, turbocharged 2.0-liter four, or larger free-breathing 3.6-liter V6.
Look for the 2014 ATS Coupe to enter production in January of next year, meaning a reveal later this year (LA Auto Show, perhaps?) would be in order.
