According to a history page that came with this car when it arrived to us:
"This 1957 Cadillac Series 62 4 door hardtop was first sold by the Cadillac Dealer in Auburn New York. It is rumored that it was a gift from Elvis to the first owner. The car was used sparingly through the late 50's and 60's accumulating just over 42,000 miles. It was then stored in a garage for about 30 years before the second owner acquired it. With this acquisition a thorough restoration was completed. The entire mechanics of the car were rebuilt. Every part was repainted in the original colors, but the paint was in much better quality and workmanship than the original, and certainly Cadillac never painted a car with “Ghost" Flames at the factory. The interior showed little wear and it was cleaned up. Only the carpet, dash pad and package shelf pad were replaced. The rest is installed by Cadillac in 1957.
When the restoration was completed, the odometer read 42,800 miles. When the third owner acquired the car, its mileage was about 44,000. In early 2007 it the odometer turned 50,000, which is just 1,000 miles for each year of its life." Note: Gateway Classic Cars are unable to verify that these are actual miles, because there is no historical record of mileage available.
Further information from the history page supplied with the car: "Highway milage is about 16.5 per gallon of high test, although speeds over 65 will decrease this some. It has the standard 300 horsepower 365 cubic inch Cadillac V8 (which has been) completely rebuilt. Although not equipped with air conditioning (deemed not necessary in upper New York State), it did have power windows, (power) steering, (power) brakes and seat (belts). It also had the “Autronic Eye" which automatically dimmed the headlights when an oncoming car was detected (that's the little device on the dash to the left of the steering wheel). This car was at the TDOT 50th anniversary celebration of the creation of our Interstate Highway System at the Bi-Centennial Mall in June 2006, and later in the Fall at the Celebration of Tennessee History at the same Mall. It is said to have also been one of the two cars that appeared on the Williamson County TV Channel to publicize the 2006 Kris Kringle Car Show and Arts and Crafts Fair."
