THIS CAR IS SOLD! Just back from the show Vegas, the ultimate classic cruiser! A 1957 Caddy with a fresh rebuilt original 365 V8 including receipt

A factory 365ci V8 still sits under the hood, which Cadillac says makes 300-horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. Despite having 91,000-plus miles on the odometer, this Caddie still has enough oil in the sump and the oil is clean. The same is true about the transmission fluid. All eight spark plugs are in good condition. A fresh battery has been installed. The seller believes all the car needs to run is a starter and a good tune up. Marvel Mystery Oil has been injected into all eight cylinders, which will guard against metal-on-metal damage once this engine is turned over for the first time in decades. In addition, the tires are fresh, so you don’t need to worry about blowouts from dry rot or flat spots.

While Cadillac sold over 23,800 Coupe DeVilles for 1957, many haven’t survived and have been scrapped long ago. This one is rough, but it’s a potential clean slate for someone interested in doing the work. Canyon State Classics is selling this project car, so if you want a chance to make it yours you should act before someone else scoops it.
