"Only 12 were produced" custom orders. The rest are probably wrecked by now.

I've seen many of these. 12 made, is not true. They were made here in New Jersey by a convertor. I personally have seen 8, counting this silver one. Also bright green; a bright blue; a maroon, 2 blacks, a white, this silver and a copper-gold. They were masterfully done, and a real work of art. The conversion was so flawless & seamless, you'd swear it was indeed factory made. A friend's father owned the bright green one, mentioned above. If I can recall, they were the price of two coupe deVilles ! (In 1970)

Does this company also do these conversions nowadays, as in the '93-96 Fleetwood wagon taxicab I saw once?

No, the company is long gone, owner dead. That was their only product, car-wise, they were a paint & textile corporation. They made these on 2 years, 1969 & 1970. The others, Pre- 1969 and after 1970 were other companies. I recall seeing the cars come in from Cadillac. I went to see them BEFORE the conversion. They were all ordered with the Trailer Tow Pkg & Leather, and the other typical 1969/1970s options. All ordered withOUT vinyl top and were sedan deVilles. They cut off the roof just past the rear door and mated to it a 1969-1970 GM full sized station wagon roof & windows and tailgate. In a clevor move (I thought) they wired the rear power window of the tailgate to the dash switch that had been for the rear defogger, really making it look factory. When I was there (1 time) I saw about 35 donar cars awaiting "beheading" ~ My guess would be about 100-125 were made per year, for 2 years. You see them in NJ as the plant was here.

Guys....this a real deal car ! These were sold and delivered thru Caddy dealers along with the elcamino type Caddies that were used as flower cars.

I think this one is a "Castillion" (spl?) conversion.

Heck.........There is a link posted somewhere around here that shows
all years these were made and by whom. Some great pics of them plus
custom ragtops also.

Searching.............................
