Up for bids is our garage-kept 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood Limo. This limo does not have the glass partition as it was used as a private car. We were told by the former owner that this car was first owned by oil tycoon Nelson Bunker Hunt.

The car has 65,094 original miles. We believe the original paint color may have been dark green but was painted black. We had a full paint correction done recently so it really shines! The car has no rust at all and has always been kept indoors.

The motor runs super smooth and transmission shifts perfectly. All power windows work, heat is good, but a/c is not currently functioning (unsure what needs to be done to get it going). The only flaw on the car is a slight indentation on the hood, drivers side, previous owner said it was from being transported, but it's barely noticeable. The trunk lock mechanism could use some adjustment, it sometimes get stuck so we currently have the lock out, but will include a new one with the car, we recommend adjusting the latch before installing the new lock. The power brakes could use adjusting, they work and the car stops fine, but you need to push pretty hard on the brake pedal, however the car can be driven anywhere just as it is now. The seats are all in great shape and include 2 limo only jump seats for extra passengers. We are unsure if the interior is original or redone but it is period correct.

This is an awesome, rare car that gets more attention on the road than most exotic cars, and really catches the eye coming down the road. It would make a great car for weddings, TV, photography, movies, etc, if you wanted to make extra money with it.

The winning bidder would need to pay a $500.00 deposit through PayPal at auction end, and cash balance within 10 days of auction closing. Seller responsible for picking up the car or having it shipped. We will list this as an auction at the lowest price we could possibly take which is less than we have put into it, we will not accept less, so please no offers. Thank you. Please message with any questions and we will try to answer as best we can. Thanks and good luck!
