FOR SALE: 1957 Cadillac Sixty Special
With its pillarless design, flashes of chrome and extravagant details, the Cadillac Sixty Special was certainly not an exercise it subtlety.
Year and Make/Model: 1957 Cadillac Sixty Special
Engine: 6L V8 Petrol
Transmission: 3-speed Automatic
Colour: Black and White
PRICE: R375 000
It's fair to say that with a length of 5.8m, a width of over two metres and weighing in at over 2000kg, the Cadillac Sixty Special makes an immediate and lasting impression.
To move the Caddy's considerable bulk, GM's thinking at the time was that there was no "replacement for displacement", and so the Sixty Special features a 6.0L V8 engine, mated with an automatic transmission. Cruising down the strip, elbow out the window and with a V8 burble being ever-present, is the way to do it...
This black/white example dates to 1957 and was produced during the crossover period between the fifth- and sixth-generation Sixty Specials. Although it appears largely original on the outside (and requires some TLC), there have been some upgrades to the power steering system and a modern sound system, extra gauges and aftermarket steering wheel have been fitted.
Interesting trade-ins will be considered.
