1956 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine wait till you see it! This car has been sitting exposed to the weather for several years, and as such there is some deterioration of the exterior surfaces, ie. some surface rust coming through the primer, bumps and bruises from sitting, cracking body filler, some rusting on the front doors, etc. The bodywork that has been done will need to be checked thoroughly before painting. A thorough mechanical inspection will be required. Areas known to be in need of attention include a broken left front coil spring, brake bleeding and possible ABS motor, fabrication of parking brake mechanism, new transmission rear seal, A/C system overhaul/completion, interior upholstery, and reinstallation of roof glass. The right rear belt molding is missing and some moldings for the stretch section will need to be fabricated or otherwise sourced. The car that donated its mechanical parts was a retired police vehicle with around 100,000 miles of use, so appropriate wear of these parts can be expected. Needs a windshield. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1956-Cadillac-Fleetwood-Limousine-/282369162510?forcerrptr=true&hash=item41be837d0e:g:zUYAAOSw2gxYrKrr&item=282369162510

Not much value there "as-is". Looks like someone ran out of money and/or interest. Unfortunate that they screwed up a Fleetwood 60S.

It does sound like a stalled project ran out side and forgotten.
