1959 Cadillac restoration by CPR

Passed on from father to son, this collectible car with its iconic tail fins was meticulously maintained by its original owner and that care continued on when his son took possession. In fact the car survived almost 60 years and when it arrived at CPR only partial restoration was necessary.

New paint and interior, engine compartment restoration and other work was performed and when this 1959 Cadillac restoration project was completed, she was a stunner that turned heads everywhere it went.

Among its stops were prestigious classic car shows including those held by the Antique Automobile Club of America and the Cadillac & LaSalle Club as well as numerous concours level events.

Judging at the above-listed events is extensive but none are as stringent as the inspection performed by the expert judges of the Cadillac LaSalle Club at their annual Grand National Meet. This year’s event was held in McLean, VA and attracted Cadillac owners and their cars from around North America.

This is the premier classic Cadillac event in the world and for Cadillac restoration providers, it is the testing ground for their work. As usual, Cadillac Parts & Restoration

was there with a large contingent of their restored Cadillacs. Among them was this white 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and, throughout the day of show, it attracted large crowds of admirers.
Following the show day on Saturday and when the judging is completed and scores totaled, owners and attendees sit down for a week-ending awards banquet celebrating the event. However, the highlight of the banquet for most is the presentation of awards. Among the award recipients was the proud owner of the PR-restored 1959 Cadillac that was recognized with the distinguished “Senior” award designation in its class.

It’s mostly outstanding original Cadillacs and full restoration projects that earn enough points for “Senior” status and it’s a testimony to both the lifelong care provided and the restoration skills of the CPR team that this car earned such esteemed status.

Restoration Project: 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville

Bulbous and bold with lots of gleaming chrome and decadent luxury aptly describes the styling of 1950s era Cadillacs.  By 1957, Cadillac had long-established its reputation as America’s premier luxury automobile and the Eldorado model line was the pinnacle of that opulence.

The low-production Eldorado model line consisted of the Biarritz (convertible) and Seville (hardtop coupe). Today, the convertible top is the more popular choice among classic Cadillac owners, however, the Seville has a very loyal following as well.

This completed 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville restoration project by the CPR team servesOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA as a wonderful example of why these cars remain so popular today. Audacious and elegant, this stunner turns heads whether on the street or the show field.
