1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty-Special
The Sixty Special was very distinctive and rich-looking this year. Broad ribbed stainless steel fairings decorated the entire rear quarter panel, below the conical flare. Even the fender skirts featured this type of trim, which extended fully forward along the body sills. Sixty Special scripts appeared on the sides of the tailfins and a Fleetwood script nameplate adorned the rear deck lid. Standard equipment included Hydra-Matic, power brakes, power steering, power windows, and fore-and-aft power front seat.
PAINT The paint is slick and deep, a show finish. The car was restored in the mid-90's and has been a show car so there is some normal ware.
INTERIORThe interior is a combination of original and restored it looks just as it . All of the interior chrome is virtually pit-free and shines like new. The radio has been restored and does work, the power antenna goes up and down like new. Power windows operate like new with all switches. The headliner is in very nice condition and is original, a rare find. Horn works fine, and is loud! Power seat works. Dash pad is restored and is factory correct.

Runs very nice. Transmission works well, with a recent servicing. The engine compartment has all of its original components, with the exception of hoses and belts. It appears to have been painted at some point in the past, but looks correct. Power steering works effortlessly and is quiet. There is a small bit of play in the steering, which seems fairly normal...doesn't effect drivability.
BRAKES Brakes work as they should
TRUNK Fully restored and in excellent condition
UNDERCARRIAGE Typical for a car that has had an extensive restoration, but some wear and grim that comes with normal driving. There is NO rust-through on any of the floors or trunk, or frame. The gas tank was recently removed and cleaned. Exhaust appears nice and complete.
WEATHERSTRIPPING/BODY RUBBER Most of it is in excellent condition, and it is all intact.
