1949 Cadillac Series 62 / 496255635 Chassis Information

1949 Cadillac Series 62
Convertible Coupe
Designer: Harley Earl
Chassis Num: 496255635
Sold for $75,900 at 2009 RM Sothebys.
In 1949, Cadillac introduced its new overhead valve V8 engine that was more compact and lighter than its predecessor. This basic engine would power Cadillac models through the late 1970s.

There were four Cadillac series offered in 1949 with the most popular being the Series 62, available in Sedan, Coupe, Coupe DeVille and Convertible Coupe form. The Convertible Coupe came standard with power-operated windows and an upgraded interior.

This example is finished in black and has a period-style spotlight, whitewall tires, and 'sombrero' wheel covers. The interior is red leather upholstery with matching wool carpets. There is an AM radio and a heater. Power is from the V8 engine mated to a Hydra-Matic transmission.

In 2009, this Convertible Coupe was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $80,000 - $100,000. The lot was sold for a high bid of $75,900, including buyer's premium.
