What 62' Cad parts I can use on my 61' ?
« on: July 27, 2017, 07:39:48 PM »
I recently found a 1962 Cadillac Coupe on the side of the road and the owner offered to give up parts if I needed any.
I am interested in the split bench seats, dash, and the hood since I messed mine up. My question is, will these fit my 61' Cad sedan? :o
Am not very familiar with which parts match up to mine. Also interested in anything under the hood that could fit to my classic. Thanks. ???

They don't Have split bench seats those are bucket seats. the hood will fit the dash is a little different but will fit. is your car is a sedan? I have a hood, dash parts  and seats for a sedan cheap if you are interested. most all under the hood stuff will interchange.

Yes, My car is a sedan. I do have a 62' radiator in mine and fits fine. I was just curious of any other engine components that could possibly fit. I would like to see pictures of all the parts you have to offer. Thank you.

If I was you, I'd buy the whole car and focus my efforts on putting it back on the road. myself and others would tend to believe that coupe is much more desirable/valuable than a sedan, even if its not 100% original and acurate. Just my 2 cents....

Put the two door on the road! The buckets are worth $500 as it I bet. All the engine parts will fit, transmission, rear end, Gage's and switches.  I would guess the 80% will fit both.

Yes I agree if possible and you can get the car at a reasonable price . build it,, the body in the photos looks straight And most of the time a 2 dr ht is more desirable  than a sedan.And you seem to already have a car for parts.

For me its different. My sedan is more valuable than this coupe which is in disrepair. I looked at the floor and its rusted through and the man told me if he could, he would restore it but its too far gone. At this time, I can only afford to buy the parts that I need and I am focused on only one project car.

I get it. I would stay far away from a rust bucket that's for sure.
