  1. Hi Bill, thank you very much!. Sadly you're right...I doubt we will see models again as beautiful as what Jo-Han had created. This time is long gone. So I humbly try to give a bit of love, a new life to damaged ones.
  2. Hi Bill, Thank you very much. Yes you're right. By "sedan" I meant a 4 doors version. This one is the Hardtop Sedan DeVille for 67, compared to the other versions. Calais pillared Sedan, Calais hardtop Sedan, Sedan DeVille Hardtop and Sedan DeVille pillared were the 4 options offered by Cadillac that year. And apart from the limousines series 75, the 2 other "sedans" versions also offered that year were the Fleetwood Sixty Special and the Fleetwood Brougham, just a bit longer in wheelbase. That was a lot of versions back then, and these options were almost the same from 1965 to 1970. Quite complicated to naviguate into Cadillac terms at the time
  3. Hi Claude, Thanks !. Passes de bonnes fêtes, et bonne année, full en santé !
  4. Hi everyone. Here's my new conversion. Restored and made from a damaged Jo-Han's Coupe DeVille kit bought on Ebay earlier this year (see last pictures). The kit was missing a few parts so I decided to turn it into a 4 door sedan version. Color is Olive green over "Sudan Beige", as close as possible. New interior front seats, roof line and pillars, new dual stripes white walls. Hope you'll like it, and thanks for watching.
  5. Hi Thomas. Wheels choice is personal, not really not my cup of tea for this iconic model but your repair, paint and foil work are absolutely gorgeous. Stuning skills here, congrats !.
  6. Hi Rich ! Very nice Fleetwood, I love it !. I know what you mean with BMF. You have thin sheets, I have 2 very thick ones !. Once peeled, it leaves an orange skin effect on flat surfaces. Never had these issues before. Anyway. Great work on that Caddy !.
  7. Hi Rich !. You did a wonderful restoration. Great work, I love it !

    Flat tops

    Hi ! You can try Paul Hettick's 1959 Cadillac Flattop 1/25th resin kit. Paul sells them on Ebay from time to time. Although you would need the Monogram/Revell's 1959 Cadillac Eldorado as a donor for some parts, Paul's kit is fantastic, with correct rear bumper's grille design, correct hubcaps for the series and interior, and clear rear window. If you love flattops, it's a must have. Here's mine I built some time ago.
  9. Hi Michael, Sorry, I am not selling. Can't think about letting one of my Cadillac go
  10. Yep, I am a bit crazy about Caddies Almost 40 years of unconditional love...and still new things to learn about the brand every day !.
  11. Hi Steve, thanks. I did curved a bit the outer corner edges of the windshield's frame but it is maybe not enough... I could have also transformed the inner corners, that is what accentuates the square effect. Next one will be better, still have a 73 Eldorado convertible to do.
  12. Hi Claude! You're right about the Caribou and the Mirage. Mirage was a specific model made by Traditional Coach Work LTD, familiar with their 76 Caddy conversion that the now late Modelhaus created a decade ago ( and that I lost the chance to buy at the time). I am not aware about 1960s conversions though. But it's not less fun to make one !. . It happens when people mix pickup conversions with flower-cars. But Flower-cars were built on professionnal chassis, they were way longer than regular series, longer than the series 75 limousine Chassis. These were boats !. One exception though...The Mc Clain Flower-cars, from late 60s to late 70s if I recall correctly. can't wait to see your 64 pickup !
  13. Hi Claude !. Merci beaucoup. That's a fantastic story you are sharing with me and you must have seen so much wonderful cars!. I came up very close buying a real Eldorado Coupe 1972 last year but with Covid it was not really serious. Partie remise ! I can't wait to see your converted 64 Cadillac!. I am generally not into heavy customs but some mild ones are obviously quite elegant. Check this really cool one, made from a 1964 Fleetwood Sixty-Special. IMO, with whitewalls, it would be even better
  14. Hello Monty, Thank you very very much!. As long as I have relatively steady hands and not so bad eyes I will never stop doing Cadillacs. I love them too much, and only them. The Nebraska license plate is just a coincidence. It is part of a 1970s's era license set I bought on Ebay. I choose this one cause the year 72 appears on the bottom.
  15. Thank you very much Rusty. I am also very very fund of this design, one of my favorite especially in the Coupe version. The designer's name who had created this ninth generation of Eldorado for Cadillac back in 1971 is Wayne Kady!. What a premonitory name to then become a chef designer for Cadillac . A man of great talent, without a doubt.
