1931 Cadillac 355
LS2 V8, 4L65 TRANS, COILOVERS, A/C, CUSTOM INTERIOR, DAYTON WHEELS, MORE!!
HIGHLIGHTS: Unbelievable 1931 Cadillac 355 Coupe Restomod! Talk about a SHOW STOPPER! This pre-war Cadillac is as clean as can be, with mighty and tasteful upgrades integrated throughout! Fuel injected Cadillac CTS LS2 direct injection engine and 4L65 automatic transmission! So many upgrades and beautiful workmanship! Frame-off restoration + customization! Believed to be a two-owner car!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Cadillac is clean, straight, and about as flawless as you can get. Made of all steel, one look tells you that this is a car that has truly been taken to the next level! The edges are crisp and the body lines are straight. Every curve is just as smooth as can be. The original bumpers have been fully rechromed for a unique appearance, and there's not a corner of this car that won't take your breath away. Last but not least, this Cadillac coupe has been lowered almost 2” and had the top chopped 1.5”.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Finished in a gorgeous one-off custom-mixed shade of 'black cherry', the paint on this Cadillac is simply stunning. The paint is slick with a deep gloss and a tasteful metallic finish; just enough to catch your eye but not enough to blind you. The paint job is high-quality that shows well, with little to no defects to be found. Combined with the color-keyed Dayton wire wheels, this subtle head-turner will stop any car enthusiast in their tracks!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior of this car is a tasteful, no expense spared custom experience just like the exterior. Custom fabricated by legendary interior customizer Steve Holcomb of Pro Auto, it is no wonder that the interior flows as if the car were designed this way. Customized leather seats, gorgeous simulated wood grain, and ridiculously tasteful aftermarket gauges combined with an Ididit aftermarket steering column really make this Cadillac more of an experience than simply a car. Retaining the spirit of the original interior while combining it with more modern and comfortable attributes is no easy task, yet here we are! Other interior amenities include:
-Heat & A/C
-Power Leather Seats
-Power Door Locks
-AM/FM Radio w/ CD Player
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: If for some reason you're not already excited about this car, you're probably about to be. The engine is a GM LS2 V8 pulled from an early 2000s Cadillac CTS, truly a statement of 'Keep Your GM Car All GM'. This engine is a great choice for this car, providing ample power, fast starting, and amenities such as power steering and A/C. Customized with paint-matched Cadillac CTS engine covers, this puppy looks right at home sitting in the prettied-up engine bay of this Corvette. The installation is top notch, with all wiring and hoses tucked away and nicely finessed in place. If one didn't know any better, it almost looks like it belongs! But wait, there's more! Other mechanical upgrades include the following:
-Ford 9” Rear w/ 3.73 gears
-Kugel Komponents Independent Front Suspension
-Cast Stainless Spindles
