No doubt, this Cadillac Series 62 has what it takes to command attention, showing off sultry lines finished in Bentley Hallmark silver paint, which is matched to a Black Stayfast power top. The cabin space was extensively upgraded as well, with a host of modernized amenities and features. These include Classic Industries gauges, Vintage Air and heated front seats to keep it comfy, power windows, cruise control, and custom audio from R&B Vintage Auto Radio that includes Bluetooth support with hidden USB drive / aux inputs. The large three-spoke Nardi steering wheel also gets tilt adjustment.
Motivation is sourced from the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 engine, the same powerplant found in a plethora of GM performers, including the C7-generation Corvette Z06, Chevy Camaro ZL1, third-gen Cadillac CTS-V, Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, and Cadillac Escalade-V. Output in this particular application is set at 640 horsepower, with the GM 8-speed 8L90-E automatic transmission on hand for the cog swaps, feeding a Strange 9-inch rear end and 31-spline axles. Other notable underhood details include a Drive Junky accessory belt and custom aluminum radiator.
Naturally, all this good stuff is set on top of some solid bones, with an Art Morrison chassis providing the underpinnings. Even though it’s more than 80 years at this point, this Cadillac Series 62 should handle quite nicely thanks to a power rack-and-pinion steering system and Strange adjustable coilover suspension, including an independent front set-up and four-bar rear. A set of Wilwood Pro Spindle 13-inch rotors and SL6 brake kit up front are paired with an SL4 brake kit in the rear.
This particular 1941 Cadillac Series 62 restoration was completed in November of 2021, with the car accumulating 1,100 miles since.
