1956 Cadillac Coupe DeVille project 


You are bidding on a restoration project. I purchased a running driving 1956 Cadillac Coupe DeVille with the intention of a full restoration and started the work two years ago. All of the body work is completed. There was no rust under the car to repair - very clean.   


Ebay wouldn't allow me to add the correct VIN # due to her age. But both cars have a valid vin #.


We have completed the body work to a very high professional standard. She is Duchess Green with an Artic White top. She was originally delivered with a dark green top. I preferred the white. 


Rocker panels were replaced during this process. She was remarkably rust free and required very little body work. The body is laser straight.

The paint, in color, was applied in two coats. Then three coats of clear were applied. We have not sanded or buffed the car yet. 


The engine ran well, she shifted well also. The brakes worked well, but again, she was being restored fully so we planned to restore the suspension, brakes, etc. 


We purchased a parts car (same year, same model) to extract parts from to complete the restoration. There is a complete extra engine in this car - and transmission. The engine was reportedly rebuilt and looking at the pictures, you can see that it was painted Cadillac dark blue. I have not attempted to start this engine. 


She would make a great resto mod also. Again, both cars are included - no reserve auction. I respond to all emails and it is the best way to communicate with me. I have several vehicles listed on Ebay currently. 


Inspections are encouraged and invited. Please ask your questions before bidding. 


This is a no reserve auction and being sold as is, where is, with no warranties implied or expressed. If you have less than 10 positive feedback score, please email me first or I’ll remove the bid. I’ve had too many...
