Pick of the Day: 1941 Cadillac Series 62 custom-built resto-mod coupe

The stunning black pre-war beauty has been transformed for modern driving


The Pick of the Day is an immaculate-looking 1941 Cadillac Series 62 that’s been masterfully resto-modded, with its original fine-looking styling and trim restored and a modern V8, interior, steering and suspension installed. 

It required “10 years of love to create this black beauty,” according to the Lolo, Montana, dealer, advertising the Cadillac on ClassicCars.com. “All metalwork, stainless and chrome is new or refurbished. Body and paint flawless.

“The interior is unbelievable; you have to touch it to realize the quality. Top-shelf Tapis products completely throughout the interior, including the finest Ultrasuede leather seats and door panels in Persian Blue, blue diamond carpet and clear blue headliner.”   

The 2-door coupe is powered by 1970 Cadillac running gear, with a 472cid V8 that generates 325 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque, and a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, the dealer notes.

“It has power steering and power disk brakes up front, air conditioning, tilt wheel, power windows, power door locks, power seats and power antenna,” the ad says. “Cadillac wire wheels (5) and 4 new 4-inch wide-white radials,”

Whoever opts to buy this gorgeous Cadillac will be getting something of a bargain, the dealer advises, because the owner who consigned the car has lowered its price for quick sale.


“Seller says reduce the price!” the dealer says. “Ran out of storage space for the winter. He wants it gone!”

Considering the Cadillac’s apparently excellent condition and splendid appearance, it does seem reasonably priced at $55,000.  The black coupe would be a spectacular cruiser and a star at car shows.


“The quality of this build is stunning; the cost of replacement would be staggering,” the dealer concludes.

  1. Folks, click on Pick of the Day and scroll down to the bottom. The seller is listed there and you can contact them directly!

  2. That is simply magnificent. Cooler than a ’59 imo. And with the modern running gear could possibly run in the 13’s- with the a/c on.
    Just the sh**.
