If you want style and room enough for plenty of friends, you can’t go far wrong with the flair of a Cadillac and room for 9 passengers.
Essentially the same body as the Limo and both holding 9-passengers, the Sedan differed only in that it lacked the partition panel behind the driver.
What’s more while Cadillac built 904 Series 75 limos, they made just 696 Series 75 Sedans – making this 1962 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood Sedan in Ebony Black just that little bit rarer. What’s more it has only had 2 owners and has less than 44,000 miles on the clock! That’s an average of only 800 miles per year.
Power comes from Cadillac’s trusty 390 cubic inch V8 providing 325 horsepower and paired with a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The engine was made smoother and quieter for 1962 making Cadillacs even more comfortable to travel in.
Plenty of parking space is needed too. The Fleetwood Seventy-Fives are 242.3″ long – that’s over 20 feet!
As you’d expect from a Cadillac it’s got power brakes, power steering and power windows front and back.
Limo style space in the back. You can fold down the jump seats to produce an extra row. The footrests can flip depending on whether you want to use them or not.
If you had ordered this Fleetwood when it was new it would have set you back $9,722.

Invicta – The most spirited Buick, was how they portrayed their new performance line for 1959. Just like the Century before it, the Invicta joined the standard size body of the LeSabre (previously the Special) with the larger more powerful Wildcat 445, 401 cubic inch V8.
“If you’re the kind of person who likes high-stepping action…“, touted the original sales literature, “then one of the fabulous ’59 Buick Invicta models is the right car for you“.
The only distinctive feature from the previous year that was retained was the rectangular squares making up the grille. The delta-wing canted fins at the rear were reflected at the front where it wore cats-eye like front fender edges over the upward-canted dual headlights.
The paint on this Invicta is original as is the interior with both being in great shape including the Nylon-Balfour cloth and Cordaveen upholstery. (Cordaveen was Buick’s name for their vinyl-like material).
This shot of the rear seats show just how clean this interior is.
Keen eyes will notice this car sits pretty low – it’s been ‘bagged’ and, for those that don’t know, it’s the term for adjustable air suspension. We think this further enhances the already “mean” look of the car.
All-new for 1959 was the 401 cubic inch Wildcat 455 engine producing 325 horsepower and it was standard on the Invicta.
The Invicta certainly wasn’t Buick’s biggest selling series but it sat comfortably between the best-selling LeSabre and the more luxurious Electra. A total of 52,851 Invictas were sold. 20,156 of them were the 4-door hardtop you see here and was the most popular model in the series with a base price of $3,515.
A little more was spent on this particular car when it was first ordered. This included a Sonomatic AM radio at $102, power steering at $108 and air conditioning costing $430.
From classic, elegant styling to pioneering power and performance, the Impala SS is one of the most legendary muscle cars of all time. The Chevrolet Impala SS was released in 1961 and the base model itself went on to span 10 generations. In the mid-1960s, modifications to the frame were made which resulted in an iconic Impala style easily recognizable today.
Impala models produced in the late 1960s could be considered part of the fourth generation, which was arguably the most coveted. Many body styles and engine choices were offered as well, enhancing its popularity. Even in modern times, the Impala SS is one of the most exquisite choices for restorations and a hallmark of many classic car shows. Let’s take a look back at the ‘65-’70 Impala SS models and their remarkable heritage.
In 1961, the first Super Sport package on the Impala was offered for a price of just $53.80. Along with a more powerful engine, this package included better suspension and power brakes. Original SS models are incredibly rare, as just 142 were sold with the upgraded engine. The package included a 409ci V8 as standard, capable of 360hp and 409lb-ft of torque. This particular engine would last until around 1965 when it was succeeded by the 396ci Mark IV V8 with a Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 transmission.
The mid-1960s model presented revolutionary modifications in the aesthetic department with the elimination of the classic X-frame design. The X-frame, which posed significant safety concerns, would be replaced by a perimeter frame. The design change marked an important milestone in Impala history. Post-1965 models were visually different and embraced a sleek form factor.
This ’57 Chevy is far from stock. So far from stock that the biggest motor GM produces still didn’t cut it! This badass ’57 Chevy has a 565ci stroked V8 engine (the previous owner claims 755HP) paired to a bulletproof TH400 3-speed automatic transmission! Take a look below at the long list of aftermarket performance parts added to make this ’57 a rocket ship! The underside features a custom frame that has been painted a beautiful gloss Burgundy, chromed front and rear suspension components, fat Mickey Thompsons in the rear to hold the power down, power disc brakes (front and rear), power steering, and a custom 4” chromed side exit exhaust system! The interior features Burgundy upholstery with a matching roll cage, custom bucket seats, custom center console, aftermarket performance replacement gauges, and much more!
