Beater Barn Find: 1962 Cadillac Sedan de Ville

Did you know that in 1962, 40 million Americans said they would rather have a Cadillac than any other car? Well it's true, according to sixties GM advertisements anyway...

Spotted right next to the DR tiller in some guy's central Ohio yard is this very ballin' and very correct '62 Caddy, sporting all of its trim and whitewall tires. It looks as though the original 390 V8 may have been snagged, as the front end is sitting unusually high. Hopefully come spring it'll be back on the road with a twin turbo 429.

Lastly, one more crazy fact: 1962 was the first year heaters were standard equipment across the Cadillac range. Crazy indeed.
