Distinctive for its longer 133-inch wheelbase and its massive stainless-steel inserts on the lower rear quarters, this low-production 1958 Cadillac Sixty Special Fleetwood sedan is one of 12,900 such cars produced that year. This example’s history is said to be traceable since it was sold new in Seattle, and the selling dealer describes it as a clean, strongly original car, believed to still wear its original paint. The brakes are said to have been recently serviced, and the shock absorbers replaced. The Sixty Special was powered in 1958 by Cadillac’s 365-cu.in. OHV V-8. With a compression ratio of 10.25:1 and a Carter AFB four-barrel carburetor, the engine was rated by the manufacturer at 310 horsepower when new. The seller makes no specific statement about its originality, but says this Cadillac’s engine runs strongly and may have been rebuilt during the 1980s. The General Motors Controlled Coupling Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission is reported to shift smoothly, and the seller notes normal powertrain leakage for a car of this age. The engine bay presents as being stock and generally clean, in the provided photos. The body seals and weatherstripping are reported to be in acceptably good condition, and the seller states that this is a rust-free Washington car. The complex multibullet grille appears to be complete and undamaged, and the lower-quarter stainless pieces look to be in good, straight condition. The seller notes that the glass is in good condition and that the exterior lighting is functional. The underside presents as being generally clean, with scattered surface corrosion visible in the photos. the Cadillac’s shock absorbers were replaced recently, and its power drum brakes recently serviced and adjusted. No functional issues are noted. The whitewall tires are reported to be new as of spring 2021.
