1951 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible (LHD)

Our beautiful 1951 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible was delivered on the 22nd June 1951, in Mist Grey with Red Leather upholstery and a Black convertible soft-top. This Series 62 was well-optioned with Goodrich BW tyres, windscreen washer, wheel discs, license frames, automatic heat control, fog lights, and a vanity mirror and cost $3,066.16 new. The vehicle retains all of these options, minus the original tyres, and its current paintwork and interior are as per the factory body tag. This Series 62 underwent a significant restoration in 1992 to bring it back to its factory specifications. In 2009, the engine and transmission were removed and refreshed, with the electric and hydraulic systems tested.

By the completion of the 1950 model year, Cadillac was officially crowned an American tour-de force of automobile manufacturing. Their production figures outmatched nearly all other domestic brands, and a pair of notable submissions at the year’s premier motorsport event—the 24 Hours of Le Mans–cemented the marque’s popularity while also expanding their image outside of the continental United States. The legendary Series 62 achieved the most notable sales performance yet, with nearly 60,000 produced across all body and trim variations. Starting with the 1950 model, the Series 62 Convertible Coupe received a revised front grille, single pane windshield, and a smattering of additional standard features including the Hydra-matic transmission and hydraulically-operated mechanics–namely the windows, brakes, and convertible top. By 1953, Cadillac celebrated the final year of the model’s third generation with additional standard features, a bevy of improvements to the V-8 powerplant, a dual-range modification to the Hydra-matic system, and larger 12-inch drum brakes at all four corners.
