Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Another Cadillac inspired product
« Last post by Lexi on Yesterday at 11:36:26 PM »
Yet another Cadillac inspired after market accessory offered in this 1956 ad. These look like the same "Eldo knock-off" hood ornaments I posted earlier, (same price as well). This time mount them on your fenders! Note the mid fifties style Cadillac hooded headlight and '57 Caddy like tail fin pictured in the ad. Clay/Lexi

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.

Link to the thread.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / 1954 - 1956 Cadillac like trim
« Last post by Lexi on Yesterday 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 was not offered for Cadillac models. Clay/Lexi

I finally have the new front upper ball joint installed.. There is a plate under it, so it does not look exactly like the original, but i have installed it easily :)



Thanks to those who help me with that :)

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.
