MAE 1959 Cadillac
Do you remember this very heavyweight car. The model had many issues but for me the worst offense was the huge bulbous dashboard!
I still liked it, but the dash not so much. I used the dash and steering wheeel from a Vitesse
The photos of the white car is an unretouched original and the Pinehurst green one is my version. Thanks for looking.
Those are beautiful, Chazy, especially after you fixed the dash. You gotta love those ‘59 Cadillacs with those outlandish fins. Too much excess in those days was not nearly enough.

Got rid of my baby blue coupe de ville long ago. The Vitesse '59 convertible (a pink one!) is in my daughter's collection. Today I have the red Spark version.
Well, you made it better! 😀
Chazy, I do not remember seeing one of these. How good is the body casting?

I've looked at these a couple of times, but never really considered one. You did an amazing job with your rework.

@ed-davis aside from being very heavy the casting is quite good, except for the dash.
