Convertible Coupe
Designer: Harley Earl
Chassis #: 486229135
Sold for $93,500 at 2011 The Scottsdale Auction - Gooding & Company.
Cadillac introduced the first rear fins in 1948 and this design theme would remain, in various treatments, for more than a decade. The Series 62 Convertible Coupe received strong horizontal lines, a cut-down windshield, push-button controls and an interior layout that influenced many designs of the 1950s.

It is estimated that around 100 examples of the Convertible Coupe remain in existence. This example was given a restoration in 1993 and has received a number of Cadillac-LaSalle Club awards including a First Primary, First Senior and even Best of Show honors in the Post-War category at the 1994 Grand National. In July of 1998, it was featured on the cover of The Self Starter, the official publication of the Cadillac-LaSalle Club.

The car is painted in Madeira Maroon over custom-dyed, Bridge of Weir leather upholstery. There are tan carpets and a convertible top. The car rides on whitewall tires with polished wheel covers. Inside, there is a drum-style instrument cluster that was a unique, one-year-only feature.

Powering the car is a flathead V-8 that displaces 346 cubic-inches and is fitted with a single Carter carburetor. The 150 horsepower produced is sent to the rear wheels via a three-speed Hydra-Matic transmission.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The car was estimated to sell for $65,000 - $85,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $93,500 including buyer's premium.
