This 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood is an upper-class four-door hardtop. But just like the best rebellions of the post-war era, this one has undergone a transformation and out to be pure rock-and-roll. So you still get a loaded cruiser with proper V8 power, but now it also comes with a superstar-style presentation.
The Fleetwood is a true premium machine where the styling is built to merge with a ton of chrome. That's why the hood custom forms around the outstretched Dagmars, and the trim below the rear style line is so long that it begins in the front door and doesn't stop until it merges with the rear bumper. There are beautiful touches everywhere you look, including the integrated rear exhaust and the Fleetwood's exclusive pillarless hardtop profile. This one even has upgraded crystal clear headlights for added flair! And even with all this distinction, we bet the first thing you really noticed was the paint. While Elvis Presley preferred pink Cadillacs, we would imagine he'd approve of this lively purple. It has aged a little, but let's face it, rock and roll never dies.
Another reason Elvis would endorse this one comes from the custom interior. Purple, black, and red velvet surround the black insert on the seats. Even the door panels, dash, parcel shelf, and headliner are done to match. And yes, you also see Marilyn Monroe in the passenger side ceiling just to make sure you get the right vibe right before you get out and walk the red carpet. There's even a police-style horn to clear the paparazzi out of your way. And while this has the look of old-school Hollywood excess there's also still plenty of practical allure. After all, you truly have the right size to carry plenty of family and friends in comfort. There are even nice factory features like power windows (passenger rear may need servicing.) And while the radio has a retro style, it's really a modern AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth. So your music selection is whatever strikes your mood.
When you lift the hood, there's more of that custom purple presentation. But if you dig a little deeper, you see this is really quite stock with hardy Caddy power. It's the numbers-matching 365 cubic-inch V8. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, these were the power envy powerhouse of their day. And this even has a glasspack-style dual exhaust for a nice tune. But this is far from a hot rodder. It's really about being smooth and swift. Plus, you have a Hydramatic automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes. There are even air shocks in the rear and the classic whitewalls hide a modern tread.
This is rock star distinction for a roadie price. So if you're looking to go bold, don't miss this custom Caddy. Call today!!!
