Who knows the history on the 1962 De Ville Convertible?
Hi Cadillac friends,
Hope you can help me out, recently bought a 1962 Cadillac de Ville Convertible at Daniel Schmitt. The car was advertised as fully nut and bolt restored but when it arrived in the Netherlands it appeared to be a restauration object!
They claimed Usd.40.000,-- was recently spend and the car was the prefect car for the collector.
Anyone knows this car and can tell me a little about the history?
The Vin.Number is : 62F007345
Nevada Silver - with tan upholstery.
see enclosed pictures.
would realy help me a lot to know prevoius owner or the company that restored it...
many thanks in advance,
vincent de vos
