Overview Of Entire Vehicle: *Condition #2 (Gorgeous, Survivor/Show Car)
Here is an absolutely amazing find! It is a gorgeous, survivor 1959 Cadillac “Series 62” in amazing condition inside and out. This is a very original car through out and has to be one of the nicest, mostly original '59 Cadillac convertibles out there. It is a factory triple black car with a lot of original paint, an all-original leather interior, original chrome and even what looks to be its original soft top. The car has its original 390ci engine with a factory tri power set up that was supposedly put on the car from new. It is a true 2-owner car with original documentation from new and was even judged 85 points out of 100 by the Cadillac & LaSalle club at a regional meet. This is truly one of the best '59 Cadillac convertibles you will ever find as it has everything going for it which includes originality, condition, history, documentation, colors, etc.!
Here is a full history on this wonderful car. On 2/26/59, Sylvia Wasserman of Skokie, Illinois purchased this car new from the Cadillac Motor Car Division, Chicago Branch that is documented on its original sales invoice. This makes me think she was a GM employee. On 8/18/59 it looks like Alexander Wasserman, which I believe was Sylvia's husband changed insurance from a 1954 Cadillac to this one. Years later, Alexander traded this Cadillac to Selig Chevrolet on 10/18/88 for a brand new 1989 Corvette convertible. My father, Bob Adams Jr. made a deal before hand to purchase the Cadillac from the Chevrolet dealership, which his friend owned. He delivered Mr. Wassermann his new Corvette and took delivery of the '59 Cadillac. We have several pictures documenting this transaction along with paperwork. There are pictures of the car covered in dust coming out of the garage and Mr. Wassermann standing next to the Cadillac and taking delivery of his new Corvette. At that time the car had 27,877 original miles on it. My father took the Cadillac home, cleaned it up, changed the fluids and detailed the entire engine compartment to show quality standards. On 5/8/89 he then sold the car to his good friend and fellow car collector in Wisconsin. He pampered the car, driving it sparingly and stored it in his climate controlled garage for the next 28 years, only putting about 9K miles on it. We just got the car back a couple months ago, bringing it to Arizona and only doing a few minor things to bringing it up to being a turn key beauty!
Even after spending its entire life in Illinois and Wisconsin, this car is still completely rust free, as it was always kept in amazing storage. According to the original owner, this car has always had tri power on it, which was an option on every '59 Cadillac, not just the Eldorado's. Being that it looks like it was ordered directly from the Chicago Branch, it may have been a very special car. The Cadillac & LaSalle club also judged this car in 2015 at their regional meet in Brookfield, Wisconsin and the car scored 85.63 points out of 100. Some deductions were one back up light burned out, only one T3 headlight, windshield washer fluid jar empty and the radial tire it did have were not the right size. Realistically this was a 90-point car and even a 95-point car with some things sorted out. You car restore one any day but finding a true survivor is another story. Survivors are only original once, even if they are not completely original. This car has truly stood the test of time and in the end, will be the most desired over restored examples any day. Do not wait, as this car will not last!!
