Classic Car Auction of Toronto - Spring

Lot : SP88
1947 Cadillac "62" Convertible

Auctioned on Saturday, April 5, 2008

Sold at $45,100

    The 1947 Cadillac line of cars benefited from subtle refinements over its predecessors with more brightwork and modest grille and trim changes. The large, optional “Sombrero” wheel covers became very popular items as well, and Hydra-Lectric window lifts became standard equipment in 1947 on Series 75 Fleetwoods and the Series 62 Convertible. In fact, of the numerous Series 62s produced, just 6,755 examples were Convertible Coupes.

    This 1947 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is an excellent example, equipped with all Cadillac amenities, and is reported to be in proper running order. Along with its peers, it is considered a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America and, given its excellent performance, presents itself as a wonderful automobile for both touring and continued show appearances.
