1959 Cadillac Restoration – a CPR specialty

Among CPR’s recent projects is a stunning Argyle Blue metallic 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz restoration that turns heads and wins awards at every car show it’s entered.

From humble beginnings…

When formed in 1984 by Elsa Mauer Nicodemus, FEN Enterprises operated out of a spare room in a 1740’s farmhouse. Although the primary business activity was selling parts and cadillac-parts-restoration-fbrestoration supplies to classic Cadillac owners, there was an opportunity to expand into the hands-on business of restoring the old cars.

It didn’t take long for FEN to establish a reputation as a premier restorer and the company flourished. It’s completed projects won many major awards and earned plenty of attention from media and news outlets.

Today, the team operates under the Cadillac Parts & Restoration name and continues to produce award-winning examples of restored Cadillacs. Their new restoration facility is located in Poughkeepsie, NY and can be reached for restoration inquiries by calling (845) 462-5959.
