1948 Cadillac Sedanette Custom Hot Rod Project

This Caddy started life as a Texas rust free sedanette. Cadillac did not build a hard top coupe in 1948. Original chassis with stainless Fat Man front end, ten bolt Chevrolet differential with disc brakes on original leaf springs. NO MOTOR. Comes with a 700 R trans. Body mods are extensive and not finished using rust free parts. Original windshield laid back to 55 degrees so has to retain original 2 piece glass. 52 Caddy hard top roof modified, 2002 Corvette convertible glass to fit rear window opening. 52 Caddy trunk lid and rear body section. Custom trunk floor. Space saver spare in trunk behind back seat. 57 Chev wheel arches fitted to rear fenders. 2004 Cadillac escalade power mirrors and seats. 1970 black Caddy steering column and steering wheel. Front and rear bumpers, over riders, tail light housings, center radio grill, re-chromed (quality Dallas chrome shop). All stainless grill bars polished same shop. Have original wheels, sombrero hubcaps, all interior fittings, original back seat, rebuilt original radiator, original dash cluster, filler neck for gas tank.

Body is roughly painted to stop rust and give some idea of finished shape. I have spent hundred of hours on body work. This vehicle would suit someone who has the skill to finish it.
