Older restoration of an American luxury car. This car is a full CCCA eligible classic. Finished in royal blue with complimentary blue leather interior and a tan softtop. The early HydraMatic transmission works flawlessly. Newer soft top with rebuilt power motor that operates quickly and quietly. HydraLectric power windows in the front doors with traditional window regulars for the rear. There is some discoloration on the driver front fender. Styling changes on the 1947 Series 62 were limited to minor trim revisions as Cadillac retained the pre-war 1941 body style. Stone guards, molded in rubber in 1946 due to postwar material shortages, came out in more attractive stainless steel. Block "Cadillac" lettering on the front fenders was changed to script. The area between the company's hallmark crest and the "V" adorning the prow of the distinguishing coffin-nosed hood was filled with a striped cloisonne. The crest on the decklid sprouted LaSalle-type wings. The Cadillac AM radio was one of the most popular features in 1947. Cadillac's trademark eggcrate grille was reduced from six to five horizontal bars for 1947, and redesigned, circular parking lamps were moved beneath the headlamps. Our featured example has optional fog lamps that share rectangular housings with the parking lights. It also sports the most noticeable and popular styling addition for 1947, optional "sombrero" full wheel covers. The 150-bhp V-8 engine could propel the Series 62 from zero to 60 in 13 seconds. The Hydra-Lectric automatic window lifts, standard on the Series 62 convertible and the formal 75 models, was the only significant functional change for 1947. The venerable 150-bhp 346-cid V-8 engine continued to power all Cadillacs. It could propel the convertible's 4,455 pounds from zero to 60 in 13 seconds and up to 100 mph.
