Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 8383397
Sold for $60,500 at 2009 Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook.
The streamlined design theme continued its evolution on all Cadillac models in 1942, except on the large Series 75. There were elliptical front fenders extending deeply into the front doors, with a pair of bullet-shaped front bumper extensions (later nicknamed 'Dagmars' during the 1950s) made their first appearance on the front of a Cadillac. The basic 'egg-crate' grille design now displayed a more massive styling theme with fewer but larger bars. There was more generous trunk area, enlarged seats and additional floor space. The Convertible Club Coupe came equipped with an electrically powered convertible top mechanism.

Total Cadillac production amounted to just 16,513 units in 1942, with just 4,961 Series 62 models produced. Of those, an estimated 300 Convertible Club Coupes were built.

This car has been given a complete engine rebuild and traveled just over 2,000 miles since that time. It has completed several CCCA tours and was shown under CCCA scrutiny in 2008. The car has a back up light and a radio, a heater and a clock.

In 2009, this car was brought to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $60,000-$70,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $60,500, including buyer's premium.
