Up for sale is a 1960 Series 62 Convertible. This is a private party sale.
We have owned the car for the past 12 years.
The car is a black plate California car. Black plates were introduced shortly after 1960; we have no idea why the car doesn't have a yellow plate vs. black plate. But our assumption is the car has spent the majority of its time in California.
Straight body, minimal rust. She's complete in terms of parts. Exact mileage unknown.
We purchase the car with the Robin's Egg blue paint / blue & white interior. Caddy aficionados will of course notice neither the exterior or interior is a standard color for 1960. Someone worked hard to make her Robin's Egg blue. Even the dash and door panels were redone to that color. The car is super-fun vs. the white / black / red you normally see!
Just had the car inspected by an expert. He called it a 3.0 to 3.5 in terms of condition on the Hagerty's scale. So I have therefore adjusted the pricing down to reflect the midpoint between the Hagerty's 3/good ($38,700) and 4/fair ($27,900) pricing to reflect a 3.5 condition.
Allen's Automotive in Campbell (best Caddy guy in Northern California) has worked on her for the major stuff -- brakes, rebuilding the speedometer head, fuel line, misc other stuff, etc. And a local guy has done the coming out of winter servicing to get her running each spring.
Please note this is a top down, daily driver. The expert said (and I agree) she's best suited for exactly what she is today -- a daily driver.
She needs a new top and carpet, and perhaps seats. And the following items are non-operational: cruise control, heater, radio, power front seat. The engine has one cylinder with low compression and she therefore blows a bit of smoke.
She is cash on close in Napa CA. No shipping.
