General Motors issued a new series of “C” bodies. used by Cadillac. Buick. and Oldsmobile. in 1954. Presaging the future. they introduced the panoramic “wrap-around” windshield that would become almost obligatory in 1955. With the major changes already made public. Cadillac had quite a job making the ’55s look new. In end. though. the subtle refinement resulted in a more sophisticated Cadillac. and the public agreed. boosting sales by nearly 25 percent and setting a record—although the improving economy certainly played a role.
Although the cars were mechanically similar to 1954. horsepower increased to 250 for the standard engine. largely due to higher compression. Manifolds were redesigned. and despite the higher power. fuel economy also improved. Although already favored by the vast majority of Cadillac customers. Hydra-Matic transmission was finally made standard.
Recipient of a full nut-and-bolt restoration in the late 1990s. this Series 62 convertible has been rebuilt to exacting standards. with no expense spared. while owned by Carroll and Priscilla Trentham of Seymour. Tennessee. Originally finished in Ivory White with a black top. the Cadillac was painted in Cadillac’s Mandan Red. with a white vinyl top and a color-matching red-and-white leather interior by Jenkins Interiors. the well-known Cadillac specialists in North Wilkesboro. North Carolina. The quality of the restoration is exceptional. and the result is nicely complimented by Firestone wide whitewalls mounted on Truespoke chrome wire wheels.
Upon completion in 2000. the car took an AACA Junior First Prize in its first show season. In 2001 it earned Senior status and was designated an AACA Grand National Champion in 2002. Air conditioning was added for personal comfort following this award-winning streak. The convertible is also equipped with power steering. power brakes. and power windows. Other features include a power seat. windshield washers. Autronic Eye automatic headlight dimmer. and a push-button radio. The odometer shows barely 1. 00 miles since restoration.
The dramatic Eldorado convertible may have been the 1955 Cadillac most people lusted after. but the basic Series 62 was the convertible that more of them bought. At nearly 8. 50 units. though. it was still rare compared to the sedans and Coupe de Ville hardtops. This car is an excellent example.
