The early history of this Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe is not known. By the 1970s, it had come into the possession of a Hollywood, California, Cadillac enthusiast. In 1978 it was acquired by Southern California collector Myron Reichert and driven to his home near San Diego. By the late 1980s, after having spent some time in storage, Mr. Reichert treated the car to a concours-level restoration.

The nut-and-bolt restoration was performed by Grand Touring Garage of Anaheim, California which totaled almost $200,000 which included installing a proper 1949 Cadillac engine, as the original motor had previously been replaced. The car was refinished in the authentic Cadillac color of Madeira Maroon. The work was completed in 1989 and then displayed at several events. It earned a First Junior Award at the AACA's Western Fall Meet in Palm Springs, California. In 1991, the car claimed a Senior Award at the AACA's Western Spring Meet in Carlsbad, California. More recently, the car won in the Special Interest Class at the 2004 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. It also won a Best in Class award at the 2008 Newport Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The current owner acquired this car in 2011. Over the past 25 years, the car has accrued less than 1,000 miles.

This Series 62 Cadillac rides on whitewall tires, has a door-mounted safety spotlight, radio, and antenna. There is an original jack and tool kit, and original owner's manual.
