This heavily customized Cadillac Series 62 Convertible from 1949 was dubbed “Cad Attack”, and it was created by none other than Greg Westbury for his own father. This elegant, luxurious and drop-dead beautiful vehicle is set to be put under the hammer by RM Auctions on November 15, 2014, when it will make a wealthy collector very happy.
This great-looking ride is the only one that ever made it on the cover of Custom Rodder magazine twice, and it’s easy to understand why once you have a closer look at it. Its handmade body is complemented by a one-piece windshield and Mercedes-Benz headlamps, not to mention the single blade custom grille, the ’56 Chevy bumpers and ’91 Cadillac tail lamps. The hood is longer when compared to a regular Cadillac Series 62 convertible, and Greg Westbury also saw fit to modify the wheel arches as well as the panel gap.
This is definitely not the slowest car on the road either thanks to a massive V8 engine that’s good for 400 horsepower, all kept in check by a 700-R4 automatic transmission. The wheels measure 18 and 20 inches and come enveloped in Z-rated BFGoodrich tires.
