Hi, thanks for letting me join. I recently purchased a 64 coupe de ville with the intention to airbag it and have a fun cruiser. Looks to be an early production car (503) and pretty well optioned. It may also be very low mileage ~10k miles. Car runs and drives well, just took it on a 1400 mile road trip. Is this a car that should be saved and transitioned more to a show/survivor vehicle or is it of low enough significance to use and enjoy?
Thanks for your advice.
She's beauty! Sounds like a good ride back home, just like it should be in a classic Cadillac! These cars are getting much harder to find, especially in the condition yours is in. I'd recommend keeping is stock and it will certainly be a great cruiser the way it is, and a real head turner. Enjoy every second of it!
thank you. Definitely a fun cruiser. No modifications for a while if ever. Focus right now is cleaning and fixing an oil that developed on the drive home. Paint is far rougher than the pictures show. Polish it and see what can be saved. Trunk lid will definitely be a respray. Looking forward to when I can drive it again in a week or two. My girlfriend is already planning a Northern California trip to the redwoods. No trailer queens in my garage.
A road trip with the GF to the redwoods could be a great adventure. And with the big back seats of these classic cars...well....a great adventure indeed! :D Enjoy!
