1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Custom "Cad Attack" by Greg Westbury
- Chassis no. 496273028
Sold for $71,500
- Designed and built by customizer Greg Westbury; Featured twice on the cover of Custom Rodder magazine
“Cad Attack,” as this car is known, was built by noted customizer Greg Westbury for his father, and it is a remarkable custom Cadillac, one that has been the feature of multiple magazines. It is a custom in the truest sense of the word, as nearly every facet of the automobile has been tailored, yet the car still retains its Cadillac identity.
Cad Attack leads with a ’79 Seville front clip that has been expertly grafted to the original frame, and it incorporates handcrafted ladder bars, Carrera coil-overs, and a Currie rear end. Its horsepower is supplied via a 454-cubic inch engine that has been modified with a RV camshaft and Edelbrock carburetor and intake, and it is mated to an updated 700-R4 automatic transmission. Beautiful Wilwood disc brakes are on all four corners to provide maximum stopping power.
The remarkable hand-crafted body is highlighted by the Carson-style removable cloth-covered chopped hardtop, a one-piece custom windshield, Mercedes-Benz headlamps, ’91 Cadillac tail lamps, a single blade custom grille, and ’56 Chevy front and rear bumpers with an integrated license tag holder. Other fine touches, including modified wheel arches, panel gap alterations, an extended hood, and shaved trim, all serve to highlight the custom coachwork. Finally, massive 18-inch and 20-inch Foose wheels that are wrapped in Z-rated BFGoodrich tires complete the exterior.
Inside, grey cloth upholstery has been custom-fitted to the modern bucket seats, door panels, console, and headliner, while the dash and other interior metal components have been smoothed to match the streamlined exterior. This extraordinary creation reflects a labor of love that can only come from the best craftsmen. Cad Attack is the only car to have been featured on the cover of Custom Rodder magazine twice, and deservingly so.
