Thank You, Thank You Very Much
There’s been all sorts of interesting stuff on the auction block lately, but surely the car above has the Seventies lovers in the audience all shook up.
General Motors never made a regular-production Cadillac station wagon, but when you’re the King you can get anything you want. The guys at Daily Turismo suggest that ASC built it using the roof and windows from a 1970 Buick Estate Wagon and their photographic evidence is convincing.
The daddy-Caddy has sold for $29K and $34K at its last two auctions. Given that a new build of a Seventies Cadillac wagon would cost close to that, it has to be considered a bargain. The Elvis connection is basically free. To find out how these cars drive, feel free — no, feel encouraged! — to read my review of a similar car. Thank you very much.
I don't know if Demolition Derbys are still popular but back in the 1980's GM Wagons and Caddies dominated them . Sad to think of it now but watching them bash the other cars to smithereens was impressive and always very entertaining . -Nate
If you can find an old Caddy ambulance or hearse, isn't that the same thing?
Holly Moley, my grandpa had one of these (Buick evidently)! Same color, it was like riding in cargo ship for a 7 year old. Rode in the back with the dog and the back window rolled down. My other grandad had a 1973 Dodge Station Wagon, it was like an extended Charger. Not sure which one was bigger, but you were rollin' like the king in both of em.
There was a similar vintage Cadillac estate for sale on Ebay a couple of years ago - it was purportedly the vehicle which hauled around the Jackson 5 way back then. It did have a TV fitted by the conversion company, between the front seats.
