This is a fully loaded car which includes Factory Air conditioning, Power windows and power steering.  One of Cadillac top of the line car in the late 50's. The car is very solid and rust free car. The previous owner had this car for almost 30 years and kept it up fairly well. The Cadillac just received a complete new brake job all around which includes new wheel cylinders hoses, and shoes. The carburetor was rebuilt and the car runs and idles very well. The car is originally Amethyst poly which is a great color combo. The interior is original and in good driver quality shape.

Benefits of AACA Membership.

I bet a good paintless dent guy could add some real value here...

Looks like someone had problems getting in and out of a garage at times.

Another great color choice from GM. Very similar to the Evening Orchid offered by Chevrolet in 1965.

I always thought this color would have been stellar on a Corvette from the era, but it was not offered.

Cheers, Greg

 I wish I could see this in person, there are some areas besides the obvious dents etc  that need attention, I went to 13,700  and was outbid  which isn't to far off of what I would be willing to pay even if it I had seen it up close.

Now that the auction has ended, you could contact

the seller, visit the car if you choose, and make a deal.

The time pressure is off, unless he chooses to relist the car.

I've done that once or twice successfully.

Did you ask for a Buy-It-Now Price?  Many Ebay sellers will offer one especially to protect a legitimate bidder against sniping and save time.  Listing states that it is a very solid daily driver.  The car has been relisted, see link above your comment.

Fin-Seeker's auction statistics show that there isn't

much benefit after a while for repeated Ebay auctions.

I think the serious bidders have already tried, and 

decided that the seller's expectations aren't what

they want--so they go elsewhere.

Kind of reminds me of beating a dead horse.  I agree every additional run through actually works to devalue the car a bit.  It's only fresh once.

Both 1957 Cadillac Coupe deVilles that I posted are described by their Sellers as "driver condition".  I thought it would be interesting to see the comparison between the two cars at auction.
