I wondered the same thing about the cast part on my starter. I decided since it was cast iron and not aluminum I needed to paint it. But it looked good bare.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / 1954 - 1956 Cadillac like trim
« Last post by Lexi on Today at 10:08:32 AM »
Here is an ad from 1956 for an accessory that looks a lot like the feature introduced by Cadillac in 1954 for some of their models between 1954 - 1956. This was a 'built in' visor-like 2 inch roof overhang that extended across the upper windshield. Although Cadillac is not mentioned in this ad, this is suspiciously Cadillac inspired. Note that the trim advertised in not offered for Cadillac models. Clay/Lexi

To answer my own questions - Cadillac Hotel Miami Beach Fla. Just "renovated" as a Marriot Hotel. I always worry when I read that places like this have been renovated, it can often [but not always] mean all the original features have been removed. Like mag wheels and a 350 small block in a 53 Eldo if you get my drift.........

Caller ID would have explained it, if I was Art Gardner!  But since Iím not, they had at least 2 1955 vacuum advance controllers at the same time, mine and Artís.

Motor case is black with a red Delco-Remy tag.  Part going into the transmission is bare cast metal.
