Description


IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT THE 1959 CADILLAC BECAME SO ICONIC!!!! FROM ITS DAZZLING NEW GRILLE TO ITS DRAMATICALLY SWEEPING REAR FINS, IT’S A CLASSIC ACHIEVEMENT IN ELEGANCE AND STYLING.

IN 1959, THE DE VILLE BECAME A DISTINCT SERIES. THE SEDAN DE VILLE FOR 1959 HAD AN ENTIRELY NEW FLAT-TOP ROOF LINE THAT EXTENDS BEYOND THE REAR WINDOW TO FORM A PROTECTIVE VISOR. A SINGLE REAR WINDOW CURVES COMPLETELY AROUND THE REAR QUARTER PANELS. THIS FOUR-WINDOW SEDAN IS ONE OF THOSE BEAUTIFUL MODELS.


UNTIL RECENTLY, THIS DRY CLIMATE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 1959 CADILLAC HAS BEEN DRIVEN AND ENJOYED BY ITS CURRENT OWNER, AN AVID COLLECTOR. THIS ALWAYS GARAGED CADI IS IN EXCELLENT RUNNING CONDITION AND IS BEING SOLD ONLY BECAUSE THE OWNER IS NO LONGER ABLE TO DRIVE.

THIS “SURVIVOR” 1959 CADILLAC CAME FROM THE FACTORY EQUIPPED WITH THE 325 HP 4BBL ENGINE, DUAL EXHAUSTS, HYDRA-MATIC TRANSMISSION, AIR CONDITIONING, POWER STEERING, POWER BRAKES, POWER WINDOWS, POWER SEAT, RADIO, HEATER, BACK UP LIGHTS, AUTOMATIC-RELEASE PARKING BRAKE AND AUTRONIC EYE HEADLAMP DIMMER. THE WEATHER STRIPPING HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH NEW.

EXTERIOR

THIS AMAZING 1959 CADILLAC IS A REAL BEAUTY IN ITS OLYMPIC WHITE PAINT, BIG FINS, ABUNDANT CHROME AND GLASS, AND P235/75R15 WIDE WHITE WALL TIRES! THIS IS SUCH A PRETTY CAR! THIS CADI IS EQUIPPED WITH BACK-UP LIGHTS AND THE PAINT SHOWS VERY WELL WITH A GREAT SHINE.

THE 1959 CADILLAC

The '59 Caddy had it all -- looks, performance, and comfort. It stood as the ultimate symbol of success. It was quite impressive with its large tail fins and jet pod taillights. The 1959s were excellent. As cars -- rocket fins or not -- they were undeniably excellent. From 1948 on, "tailfins" became Cadillac's most famous styling feature. With each successive series of new cars, the fins grew higher and more flamboyant until they reached their peak in 1959.

Few people know that the 1959 Cadillac was actually designed around a Buick door! General Motors had gone through three expensive years of tooling up for new models and the head honchos wanted to trim costs. They decided to make the basic Buick front door a common interchangeable element throughout the GM C-body line. This was a tough directive because the door tapered rearward, but an order was an order and the Cadillac design team worked around it, turning out an unforgettable product in the process.

Every designer on the project was enamored of jet aircraft. This was an exciting time in aviation and the designers were awed by the shapes of the latest jets. The P-38 influence continued on the '59 Cadillac with the flow-through lines. As Mitchell said, "Seeing the P-38, you saw how you could go from the headlight straight back to the tailfin in one line." By the mid-Fifties, jet aircraft were the thing. If you look at the rear of the '59 Caddy, it looks like the exhaust ports of a jet. It's no wonder the '59 Caddy looks like it's really moving even when it's just sitting in the driveway.

THIS IS A VERY WELL MAINTAINED 1959 CADILLAC THAT IS OWNED BY A KNOWLEDGABLE COLLECTOR. IT HAS BEEN LOVINGLY CARED FOR AND MAINTAINED, AND IS READY FOR ITS NEW OWNER TO DRIVE, SHOW AND ENJOY!

WHEN YOU DRIVE THIS 1959 CADILLAC, OTHER MOTORISTS WILL BE IN AWE OF THIS ICONIC LATE 1950’S AMERICAN JET-AGE STYLING. YOU’LL BE ON THE RECEIVING END OF MANY SMILES, THUMBS-UP AND COMMENTS FROM ITS ADMIRERS!

DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE THIS FABULOUS ICONIC 1959 CADILLAC THAT WILL GIVE YOU YEARS OF DRIVING ENJOYMENT AND IMMENSE PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP.

Vehicle Condition:

THIS 1959 CADILLAC IS VERY ATTRACTIVE TO SAY THE LEAST. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL “SURVIVOR” THAT RUNS AND DRIVES WONDERFULLY!



This Cadillac is 56 years old, so some signs of age are to be expected! While it is strikingly beautiful, it is not a “restored” vehicle. Let me first say that nearly everything appears to be in amazing unrestored original “SURVIVOR” condition. However, there are some small things that need to be mentioned here. There is a paint scuff on the right rear door. No attempt has been made to buff it out. There is a tiny ding to one piece of stainless. The interior is original and in excellent unrestored condition. The back of the driver’s seat leather is taped and has presumable split. The padded dash pad has a small amount of warping. The power steering has just begun to squeak a bit when turning the wheel to the extreme right or left. We believe that it just needs to be used and that squeak will go away.

This Cadillac is absolutely beautiful. It would not take much to bring this Cadillac up to the next level!



Note that the odometer reading above is not believed to reflect this Cadi’s actual total miles.


This Cadillac will turn heads and gets thumbs up virtually everywhere it goes!
