Hello All Finally found my Baby
I need to name her so any suggestions?
Cadillac Fleetwood Victoria Hearse by the S&S Coach Company. 86ooo orig Mi

Landau Vinyl Top:
Top is in amazing condition for it's age and Armorall's up great ? The top is in three pieces and one of the seams across the top is splitting. (as were my other two) I brought them to an upholstery shop and had a one inch strip of vinyl stitched and added to the seams like old school luggage and they looked amazing. Rest of the top is perfect.

Mechanical:
Car is mechanically sound in every way and needs nothing. It will drive cross country tomorrow. Master cylinder and brakes are brand new. All lights gauges, dummy lights, exterior lights, etc..... all work.

Interior:
Near flawless, custom seat and door panels by the S & S are perfect, curtains are perfect. beautiful factory custom interior with silk headliner, amazing wood work in the back. Tons of storage under rear deck/platform

Wheel, Tires, and Supension
All good, three great tires, and one is brand new. they are the correct old school thin white walls. Four beautiful original hubcaps with no scratched, dents, or road rash.

Congrats :thumbsup:
Nice lookin' ride. Take your time driving it cross-country; I've done it and it was one of the most memorable road trips I've ever done.
