Take the timeless appeal of a 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, add to it the modern capability and refinement of a second-generation CTS-V powertrain, and what you get is the basis for perhaps one of the coolest restomods around.
The classic Coupe de Ville shown in the video above benefits from both the supercharged, 6.2-liter LSA V8 and the 6L90E 6-speed Hydra-Matic transmission that were pulled from a second-gen CTS-V, along with the 6-piston Brembo brakes. In addition to those parts, this de Ville also features a Ridetech adjustable coil-over suspension, Delphi 670 steering box, and a Currie Ford 9-inch rear with 3.55 gears.
Just as important, the 58-year-old donor Cadillac appears to be in excellent condition, with a glossy white finish and a clean interior to match. In place of the original steering wheel and radio are a 15-inch billet wheel and a Retrosound MP3 head unit.
