Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60

Red, chrome and Cadillac excellence in this reader's 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60.

Mark Bialzik is riding in style with his '53 Caddy. There aren't many who wouldn't turn a head to take a look at this fine machine.

This is what Mark had to say about his prized Fleetwood...

"This car was restored prior to purchase. The 1953 Cadillac's firsts were the full glass rear window and the automatic headlight dimmer. 1953 Cadillacs were equipped with the most powerful domestic engine in the USA. Cadillac overhead cam engines originally developed in 1949 were used in racing by both Cadillac and others including the English Allard. It could be considered the Honda racing engine of the 1950s.
