62 Coupe DeVille for sale! Not mine but would love feedback!
« on: November 24, 2015, 12:33:08 PM »
Not that I need to be buying another Caddy until mine is done but December will be 3yrs since I took mine off of the road for my custom build and I NEED a Caddy to drive for my health! :) After all it is therapy driving our cars. I saw this one on eBay and it looks to be a good "driver" if they will let it go for the right price.....

Thoughts?

Is the tin can vacuum chamber original. I am not familiar with the 62.

I wonder if the tran sslip mentioned is just the flare up in the fluid coupling

That's a scary looking repaint.

Rust city! It all over the place. Under the trim. It just every where. Someone has tried to do some work on it. Note the Jack instruction under the trunk. It has screws holding it on. It's a fake.

If you're looking to drive it and dump it later, can't see the harm in it as long as it's mechanically decent.

Money into this is money not going into your project though.

Spend all you can to buy the most you can. This car will need a fortune in time, cash and effort.

The Body looks to be all-original with no major damage or body work performed. She is very solid, nice, shiny, and straight with an 80ís repaint job thatís ok still. It still has a shine. Buffing might restore some of the luster but itís respectable as a driver/cruiser in its current state. The body needs some very minor repairs due to some rust bubbles in just a couple of locations, just wanted to mention, nothing bad at all. I donít see any evidence of any major body work or patch panels ever installed. It presents itself well but itís not a show car in its current condition and it will need a repaint. There are some chips here and there since it has been driven and enjoyed.

This part right here tells me that the guy is so full of shit his eyes are brown.  Photos tell a very different story.

Jason Edge is in the market for one.  He wants one, since he has a 61-62 site.  ::)
