Cool Car of the Day: 1960 Cadillac Roadster

by recycler on March 5, 2014

Customizing a classic car is fun and dangerous at the same time. Not necessarily physically dangerous, but philosophically dangerous/muscle car-ly dangerous.

How do you go about incorporating what made the car a classic car, and often a strong muscle car, in the first place while also building upon the original ideas?

This 1960 Cadillac seems to have found the happy medium between the two with this customized 1960 Cadillac Roadster. This custom Caddy has taken the original large flying tailfins that were such a defining characteristic of the Cadillacs of this era and taken those to an even more prominent level.

See the car after the jump.

Like the large night wings of a caped crusader, this customized 1960 Cadillac expands itself with no remorse with the streaking straight razor fins of a ocean predator’s dorsel fin.

The listing has a giant block of features that included everything from the adjustable suspension to the engine to the arm rest with storage.

Here’s what all you can find on this black beauty of a classic car, the customized 1960 Cadillac Roadster:

While it definitely reminds me of the classic car driven by a certain Adam West character, this is a good looking muscle car, customized version of the 1960 Cadillac that is listed at more than $70,000.

Is this a worthy classic car for sale that someone should be happy with a $70K investment? Or is this just a glorified used car with a couple of pretty bells and whistles? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
