    If they're all in the condition of what's pictured it's not worth much. Build yourself a Cadillac ranch. Kinda neat bonus to come with a house tho.

    I agree.Mind altering substances for sure may have played a part in those creations.

    Re: Old house came w/ old Cadillacs and parts

    It appears someone started a project on the Sedan. The headlights, and buckets are missing along with the fender wheel wells. You could sell parts off it for cores for replating or replacement. You will have to study the market to get much from this. If you sell off the parts, you will also have to determine the best manner to remove the parts, as that deterioration will make for a lot of fasteners that will not want to come apart. Most junk yards, with cars like that, destroy more value than they get out of the parts they do salvage. How are the floors, undercarriage, other? Can the engine turn? The bumpers, Dagmars, and braces could have value as cores, as could the door handles and trim. The dash parts and components could have some value. Or you could sell the complete car off to some enthusiast in need of parts.

    That '49 looks like a Fleetwood Brougham, not a Seventy-Five.

    Wonder if he knows that the gas cap on the '49 is under the left taillight ?? Push the cat's eye and the entire light assembly is hinged.

    Actually the old man had disassembled the 1949 cadillac in 1985 and meticulously labeled the parts and put them in ziplock bags. He also had bought a lot of new parts for it. all this stuff is still in the garage. i took some pictures of some of the many ziplock bags and new parts. I have copies of his notes with his hand drawn diagrams. I have also copies of letters he wrote to different suppliers trying to find parts

    Re: Old house came w/ old Cadillacs and parts

    I think you need to get in touch with the Cadillac LaSalle Club. I'm sure there is somebody that would buy that 49 for parts, or hell maybe even restore it if it is 100% complete. That's the big thing with these old cars, if you have every single nut, bolt, fastner, piece of trim, its so much easier to restore these cars. If the floors/frame are pretty solid it might be worth it, if they look like the bottoms of the doors, it wouldn't be a project any sane person would take on.

    I guess these are the hubcaps for the 1949 sedan:

    There are 4 of them and they are beautiful. My husband thinks they were re-chromed. I am trying to figure out what they are worth. Ebay has them for $500.00 to $2900.0 for a set of four hub caps like these.

    I don't know what they are worth, but they look brand new!
    After looking at the photos of that 49, it might be salvagable. quarters and rockers look fairly solid. I do wonder what the floorpans look like though.
