Description

1949 CADILLAC SERIES 61 SEDANETTE # 496124092. (Stock #3955.) Following World War II, American car companies emerged with great ideas for mechanical and styling changes. With Cadillac, the early post-war years saw facelifts on pre-war cars and some mechanical advancement. But, in 1948, an entirely new Cadillac was born. With a sleek body featuring modified pontoon rear quarters, fender skirts and the upswept taillight design inspired by the Lockeed P-38 fighter jet. In 1949, the entirely new and fabulous overhead valve, 331 cubic inch, V-8 engine was presented in the new body introduced the prior year. The power potential of this engine made it a desired choice for hot-rodders to modify and install in a variety of cars and the “sedanette” body style featured a fabulous fastback design similar to that used on a Bentley Continental for many years to come. Our car was found in very good condition and purchased in Texas @10 years ago and then sent to a top-tier restoration shop, Automotive Restorations in Stratford, Connecticut, where @$200,000 worth of restoration work and period competition modifications were performed to the owner’s exacting specifications. At first glance, the beautifully executed 6 rows of hood louvers and the dual exhaust tell you that something is going on with the performance of the car. Upon opening the hood, the beautifully detailed original engine is topped by 4 gleaming chrome-covered 2-barrel carburetors which set-off the magnificently detailed engine bay. The bodywork and paintwork on the car are flawless as is the copious amount of original chrome inside and out. Every piece of chrome, no matter how small, is perfect. The interior is fabulously done, the seats and door panels in beautiful herringbone cloth, and the dashboard and door trim in amazing polished dark wood complementing the body-matching facia and the impeccably restored chrome. The original radio has had its innards replaced so that AM and FM may be controlled by simply pressing the volume button and it has great sound quality. There were 6,409 sedanettes built in 1949 but it may safely be assumed that there is only one which looks, drives and has the time, expertise spent upon it as has this one. It would receive enthusiastic appreciation at any show or tour. What a fabulous car to drive on any of the tours or 1000 mile runs which are frequently happening around the world! 55,670 miles. $85,000
