1957 Cadillac Coupe DeVille owned by the second owners for decades and stored inside for many years. I was asked by the family to assist them in the sale of the car. The car appears to be last licensed in 1973 according to the license plate on the car. It spent most of its life in a dry garage. In the mid 90's the restoration was started on the car by the owners son, but it never was finished. The engine and transmission were rebuilt and the gas tank was professionally cleaned and lined. on the car. It is very restorable or with a little work it could be driven as is. The car is equipped with a 364 cubic inch engine and automatic transmission. The engine compartment and engine are clean. The gas line was never reinstalled after the gas tank was reinstalled nor was the drive shaft and thus the car can not be driven. The car was pushed out of the garage that it had been stored in for years and gas was injected into the carburetor. The engine started and it didn't make any unusual noises and it didn't smoke. A short video was taken of the car running and if you send me a message or call me I can share the video with you. The body on the car is solid with the exception of the rockers on both sides of the car. The paint appears to be original to the car and is faded. The chrome and chrome bumpers are original and are not dented. The trim is in good condition A couple of taillights are missing. They could be in the boxes that go with the car of additional parts. The rocker chrome is with the boxes. The gold front grill is in good condition and the headlights are in good condition. The trunk had some work done on the passenger side but the rest of the trunk is solid, the spare tire is in the trunk. The interior is missing the carpet and that allows a good view of the solid floors on the car. The seats are worn as are the door panels. The foam underneath seems to be in good condition. The dash pad is in good condition as are all of gauges and nobs. The headliner has some small holes but is largely intact. The floors and frame are solid the cars frame was sandblasted when the restoration was begun and they look good and appear solid. The owner would like to get the car sold and has asked me to help.
