White over red is stunning, nd while it isn't a show piece, t is most definitely a show stopper.The important thing to note is that this car has led an easy life and even the chassis is cleaner than you'd expect from a 45-year-old piece. Applied in 2013, he white paint looks dramatic, hich makes the body seem about a mile long thanks to pointed quarter panels that leave no question about what kind of car this is. It looks good even up close, ith a great gloss, ood body fit, nd plenty of chrome trim to dress it up. The crisp lines and forward-canted headlights accentuate the long, ow look and all of it is quite nicely presented, ncluding the flush-fitting fender skirts. Sure, here are a few signs of use here and there, ut for a Cadillac, hat means character, nd this is a car you can drive cross-country without worrying about dust or road rash.

Accommodations are first class all the way, ith cold A/C, power front bench, ower windows, ilt wheel, nd an AM/FM stereo radio in the center of the dash. Overhead, here's a recent black convertible top that powers down in seconds and a red boot gives it a finished look. The trunk is surely original, ith a factory mat showing its age and a full-sized spare, ut again, his is only proof that the car has been well-maintained, ot neglected.Cadillac's big 472 cubic inch V8 is luxury car smooth, nd pulls with enough torque to get all that sheetmetal moving with an effortless ease.

The transmission is a rugged TH400 3-speed automatic that shifts properly, etting the big V8 use its torque to get the car moving instead of constantly swapping gears.
