1968 Cadillac Sedan Deville - Oct 29, 2009

I got this car home last Saturday. It is in pretty decent shape aside from the interior.

The body is pretty solid, 3 dents and a few dings, but no rust through that I have found so far. But I have not been all the way under nor have a I pulled the carpet. I did pull the trunk mats, they were wet and there was some flaky rust there, but no holes. The doors sound like doors should, solid and straight. Maybe some issues on the drivers door. It is pretty dirty with some form of gunk on the outside. I have cleaned about 1/2 of one side as you can see below. My plans for the body is most likely smoothing out the rough spots and dents, maybe removal of the side trim, satin black paint, and possibly some basic flames.

I am somewhat concerned about the electrical system. I will be working on that once I get a battery. It also needs at least two tires and a spare wheel. I will be doing extensive work on the interior.

The engine fluids all looked ok, but it is still unknown. I don't see any major signs of trouble, but you never know. It has the high compression 472 under the hood. If I had the money I would get a blower set up, but most likely I will just tune it up and forget it.

I can't say when I will have it going, since I don't have a garage I am the mercy of the weather. But I hope maybe by thanksgiving. My goal is to have it done by my birthday in april. I don't plan a frame off or anything that extensive, just a low buck cruiser.
