    Nice solid Cadillac highway cruiser This is a really nice 1951 Cadillac Series 61 Sedan. It was originally sold in Nevada and spent most of its life there. It is now in Texas. I’ve owned this car for about 3 years and drive it regularly. It is a solid driver car that gets lots of attention rolling down the road.

    It has plenty of power and will cruise all day at 80 MPH. The engine is strong, and the hydramatic transmission has been rebuilt. It has a 12V starter and alternator for reliability.
    It is finished in Exeter Green which is the original color for this car. The exterior has been wet sanded and polished so the dark green looks just great. The paint is smoother than most new cars. Chrome and stainless are solid but not perfect.
    The interior has been replaced and is green with tan vinyl. The headliner and carpet are also new. Included is a set of floormats that match the carpet. Steering wheel is clad in nice calfskin to match the rest of the interior. Seatbelts were added for safety. The windshield is new with no pits or scrapes. Loudest car horn I’ve ever heard.
    This car won Car of the Year for 2016 at Cars and Coffee Austin.
    Here is a list of what I’ve done to the car since I’ve owned it
    New valve lifters and pushrods
    Rebuilt mechanical fuel pump
    Added electrical fuel pump in the back to prevent vapor locking
    New Coker wide white radial tires
    New shocks all around

    Changed brushes in the starter
    Radiator flush
    Rebuilt Carburetor
    New interior seats, carpets, headliner
    New windshield
    New rubber around all doors and trunk
    Rebuilt brake master and slave cylinders
    Fixed instrument cluster
    Replaced brake light switch and flasher
    Fixed self-cancelling mechanism on turn signals
    Repaired vacuum driven windshield wipers
    Installed sealed beam headlights
    Fixed fog lights which double as turn signals
    There is still some stuff on the car that does not work
    Vacuum activated antenna
    Windshield washer
    Temp gauge is sometimes intermittent
    This car has been a joy to own and drive. But I’m ready for the next project.
