1962 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Hope everyone's doing good. Here's my last build, this is a very rare R&R Resin kit of a '62 Coupe Deville I have since at least a decade. It is converted from the Fleetwood 60S by JoHan. I had poorly painted it with a saturated turquoise blue back then and had never been happy with it. Needed a good restauration. So, I offered the Cadillac a new two tone dress, as close as "Pompeian Red Metallic" with an off-white top. Black and white interior with black carpeting. Painted accent hubcaps and new hand made chromed V crests. Hope you'll like it. Thanks !

Nice work!

I really wish that someone would have done styrene kits of the '60-'62 Cadillac coupes.

I've always loved the look of the '61 especially.

This is really nice.  Excellent choice of colors.  It inspires me to get going on my JoHan Fleetwoods.

Hi Steve, Thanks !

Modelhaus has made some of them a decade ago, 1960 and 1961 Coupe Devilles. Now extremely hard to find, sadly. The Modelhaus's '61 kit was a bit better than the '60, proportionnaly speaking. Someone's actually selling one on Ebay for 700 $ dollars !!!. Here's mine, build 10 years ago, still presentable IMO, but she'd need a better paint and chrome job.

Yeah, I wish that I would have snapped one up some time ago when Modelhaus was still in operation.

But, as they say, "wish in one hand and poop in the other, and see which one fills up faster". -_-
