Show-Quality Restoration in Elegant Charcoal Gray Metallic over Red

Designed by GM’s unrivaled team of Harley Earl and Bill Mitchell, the Series 62 arrived in 1940 as Cadillac’s entry-level offering. Featuring a bold grille and long graceful body with flowing curves, it eliminated running boards to create a sleek, elegant profile. For 1941, the model received an updated grille, one-piece rear-opening hood, enhanced brightwork, standard rear fender skirts, and headlamps that were fully incorporated into the front fenders.

This striking 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe is a former resident of the extraordinary Palm Springs-based Bob Pond Collection. It was recently treated to a highly accurate, body-off restoration by respected Cadillac specialists Collectible Cars & Parts of Arizona. The car is finished in an elegant GM gray metallic and an antique-grain leather interior in deep red, with a black convertible top. The painstaking restoration features the correct cloth top, top liner, and trunk material. It is handsomely accessorized with factory fog lamps, reverse light, dual outside mirrors, wood grain dash, deluxe steering wheel, radio, and vacuum-operated antenna. The consignor has enjoyed the Cadillac since its restoration, finding it to drive as one would indeed expect from the “Standard of the World.”

Recognized as a Full Classic by the CCCA, this freshly restored 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe would be equally comfortable on the show circuit, as a tour participant, or simply enjoying an open-air drive on a warm summer night.
