1958 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Heads To Auction3
Produced between 1940 and 1964, the Cadillac Series 62 enjoyed a total of seven generations. The fifth-generation model was introduced for the 1957 model year, and came with revised styling, while the following 1958 model year evolved the look even further. Now, this immaculate 1958 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is headed to auction with no reserve.
The exterior is draped in Alpine White paint, and topped by a blue convertible roof with power folding functionality. Chrome Sabre wheels wrapped in Coker American Classic Wide Whitewall tires fill the corners, while a generous heaping of chrome and bright metalwork add extra sparkle. The 1958 Cadillac Series 62 also stands out thanks to its quad headlamps, as opposed to the dual headlamps of the previous model year, as well as its wide, cleated grille.
The exterior color scheme continues into the cabin with blue upholstery and white accents. The interior looks as clean as the exterior, and the bright blue coloring really stands out against the white accents and white body panels. All that polished metal doesn’t hurt, either.
This Cadillac Series 62 convertible also comes with working air conditioning and power steering, plus an AM radio and in-dash clock. Final touches include power windows and a power driver’s seat.
Providing motivation is a Tri-Power 365 cubic-inch V8 engine, which is mated to a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Like the rest of the vehicle, the engine bay in this 1958 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is equally neat and clean, and comes with a gold finish for the air cleaner and hood hinges.
No doubt about it, this 1958 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is a stunning machine. Now, it heads to auction as Lot M165 at the upcoming The Eddie Vannoy Collection event by Mecum Auctions, which is scheduled to take place June 26th through the 30th in Jefferson, North Carolina.

The white Series 62 is gorgeous. The 1958’s are now beginning to be appreciated for the art that they are. In the meantime that blue unrestored ’65 looks amazing. AF
This will bring no where near what people think it will… Gorgeous car, but not valued at what the owner thinks he’s gonna get
I don’t buy auction cars, but if I did, and this one checked out as good as it looks, I would pay whatever it took to take it home.
I believe, however, that too many great looking cars are of the “lipstick-on-a-pig” school of restoration.
And all it takes at an auction is one more idiot like me to drive the price beyond reason.
Beautiful looking car, though.
