The 1947 Cadillac models were largely carry-over designs from pre-war 1942 models except for minor detail and trim changes. Demand in the industry was high and manufacturers struggled to keep pace with the ferocious appetite of the car buying community. While new cars were being developed, existing designs were put into service. By the end of the 1947 year, Cadillac had 96,000 unfilled orders and outsold Packard for the second time in history.

6,755 examples of the Series 62 Cadillac convertible coupe were built in 1947 and were the marque's sole convertible offering. Standard equipment included Hydro-electric window lifts, power top, and leather interior trim. The 'sombrero' wheel covers were used for the first time.

This particular example was originally shipped to Randall Cadillac Corporation in Brooklyn, New York, on 17 December 1947 and eventually purchased by its prior owner in British Columbia in 1981 in good condition, having been stored for some time. It was later given a body-off restoration that brought it back to its original (per firewall trim tag) configuration. The car was stripped to bare metal and finished in its correct Madeira Maroon with a contrasting tan canvas roof and matching two-tone maroon and tan leather interior.

This car has an under-seat heater, four manuals, a wiring diagram, jack, wrench, spare tire, and Hydramatic transmission. t is the recipient of an AACA First Junior award in 2001, a Senior award in 2002, a Grand National award in 2004, and Repeat Preservation in 2014, as well as a CCCA Premier First award in 2016.
