1955 Cadillac Convertible
Why This Vehicle is Special
We have a very rare and special restored black 1955 Cadillac Convertible here at Skyway Classics that really epitomizes a top-of-the-line luxury car from Cadillac back in the fifties.
Cadillacs were truly the envy of the world when this 1955 Series was built. Cutting-edge technology, big performance, and unparalleled eye appeal made them unquestionably “the Standard of the World.”
Today, they still carry a legendary reputation, and if you’re the sort who likes traditional American luxury, this car combines that big ’50s look with some modern tech.

Under the hood of our Cadillac is a 331 cubic-inch engine that had big V8 power back in the day. This engine looks just as it did when it left the dealership and looks fantastic and well presented with the factory black air cleaner assembly, Four-barrel carburetor, Dual exhaust, Automatic transmission, Power steering, Power brakes, and Air Conditioning.
The motor starts easily with the four-barrel carburetor and the dual exhaust has a nice rumble when moving the Caddy down the road in luxury with the automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and riding on the wide whitewall tires on the chrome Cadillac factory wheel covers on this impressive classic.
The interior has everything in the great luxury condition as you would expect it to be. It has the rich and comfy red sport bench seat with matching rear seat in all its luxury appearance.
The rest of the interior is exceptional also with its correct and detailed look of the red painted dash that looks factory correct with all the gauges, controls, radio, red carpeting, heater and air conditioning, and that great black/red/chrome Cadillac steering wheel.
The massive trunk is done correctly as the rest of this Cadillac and has the carpets and full size spare wheel and tire.
The Cadillac looks gorgeous painted in black with its contrasting convertible top with the flowing shapes of the styling of the fifties. The body has all the right elements like the iconic tail fins, chrome trim, huge chrome front bumper, hood ornament, wrap-around chrome rear bumper with the exhaust coming out the rear, that make this the styling that was so great on this Cadillac, not only back then, but today.
No one did it better than Cadillac did with this rare and special looking black 1955 Cadillac convertible we have here at Skyway Classics.
This is a chance to own and drive a Cadillac with the level of luxury that was the fifties. And this one even has a special history as it was brought here from South America!
