The Pick of the Day is a two-door hardtop that could have been part of the Queen of Soul’s funeral motorcade
The Pick of the Day honors the much-beloved Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, whose funeral procession last month included more than 100 pink Cadillacs.
The Caddy is a cool-looking two-door hardtop painted in a light pink with blue-and-white interior. Model year 1957 was a watershed time in GM styling, and this DeVille shows the beginnings of the towering tailfins that would become the signature feature of the luxury brand.
While just a smidgeon of information is provided in the ad, the dealer notes that the car has had “lots of recent work including complete engine rebuild.”
“The car runs and drives very good and gets a ton of attention wherever it goes,” the dealer says, adding that it is has a current state inspection and registration and is regularly “used on good days.”
The car looks fairly presentable in the photos, although as the dealer notes it’s not in perfect condition and could use some cosmetic freshening. The apparently original interior “looks in good condition,” according to the ad.
“The car looks good from 10 (feet) but the paint is older and has some imperfections upon closer inspection,” the ad says.
The pink Cadillac (which also would give props to the Bruce Springsteen hit) is priced at $25,750. That should give the next owner plenty of room for upgrades.
And just in case you’ve forgotten Aretha’s mighty double entendre classic, here’s a snippet:
We goin’ ridin’ on the freeway of love
Wind’s against our back
Ain’t we ridin’ on the freeway of love
In my pink Cadillac? Oh yeah
