Darlene P. – 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville

1960 Cadillac restoration by CPRThis 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville has been in the same family since new. Although it began it’s life in California, it now resides in New York State. Although this classic didn’t undergo full restoration it did receive a engine compartment restoration and a lot of much needed maintenance and repair. We also supplied and installed a difficult to find New old stock rear quarter fender molding. Darlene was pleased with our work and provided this testimonial:

“The Lake Placid local repair place tried to get things fixed and it took sometimes two years to get a part working again. Then my son discovered CPR. Last year it was towed there, diagnosed, and over this past summer everything under the hood was repaired or replaced. and painted the original color. Now the car drives like a dream. I am not ashamed to proudly show strangers, commenting on this beautiful car, under the hood where it looks like it just came out of the showroom.”
