    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,


    regards,

    vincent de vos
