I am getting ready to send off my '55 steering box to Lars Corp. to rebuild it.  They did the one in my Brougham and did a good job.
Let me know if you have questions.

Hello fellas.  I recently purchased yet another mid century Cadillac from a fellow CLC member.  1955 Coupe Deville with AC.  This is Evelyn!

Great find - Just bought a few.

Thank you!!
The safe bet is to have yours rebuilt. The 55 is different than the 56 and the 57 is different than the 56.

Phil finding 1950s Cad models used to be rough sledding. Is a bit better now with all the interest in die cast retro car model collecting. I have been told that 1955 was the first year for these AMT promotional Cadillac models. Thought years ago I saw an early '50s Cad promo, but can't say for sure. May not have been AMT either. I am not a toy guy so perhaps someone can chime in on this. The rarest models were the battery operated ones, again both available in 1955 and 1956. Was told that some dealers even sold them as well as 5 and 10 cent stores as the licensing agreement was rather vague on such. See rare period ad below. I have seen a '54 Cad model for sale, think it was smaller (1/43rd scale I think), is new, and worth some $600 U.S. See pic. Have a hunt on Ebay. Can't remember the manufacturers name but he does high quality builds. Seem to recall seeing a '54 Limo as well. These are new models cashing in on the public's interest in old cars and retro auto art. The ones I am selling are from 1955 and 1956. Clay/Lexi
I miss out by one year! Would love a 54 CDV model. Phil
