Default 1965 Cadillac S&S Laundau

Figured i would post this for anyone who may be interested on the PCS. I was very interested in this coach. However another opportunity has arisen and has persuaded me to pass at this time This coach is not mine. I am posting it for a friend. He is a Funeral director, and a heck of a nice guy to boot. I feel this coach is a pretty solid deal. She is a 1965 Cadillac. It is an S&S Landau end loader complete with extend table. The rear interior is gorgeous. The cab interior is complete but needs some TLC.

The body seems pretty solid. The only real issue body wise is rust that is under the vinyl top. The extent of the damage is unknown. A close examination of the pictures will reveal the rust just above the quarter panels. Her original 429 is in need of a waster pump, but sports only 40,000 miles. She will run and drive, but only very short periods as to prevent over heating. I think this coach is very restorable personally, but the rust under the top is a concern. At worst, this would make a wonderful parts car. Here are some photos.

















I will be happy to pass Luke's contact info privately to interested partys. He is asking $2,00 OBO. Ill save you the time haggling and tell you he is firm at $1,500. Coach has a clear title. Coach is located in Gainesville VA. Here is a link to the CraigsList ad.

Cheers. Paul.

good deal on a no air S&S. the roof on most of them was a problem. for such a solid coach builder it's funny they cut corners under the tops.

I agree it seems to be worth the price, with the only concern being the extent of the rust under the vynal. She would be a beauty restored though.

I agree, that would be a big concern. If its rusting there, Im sure it has alot more hidden under the vinyl. I know S&S built cars are notorious for rusting out just under the loading door window. Not sure why, the other builders did not have this problem as bad.

Mine has a little rust under the loading door window, however its not real bad. I would like to one day in the near future have that fixed before it gets worse and have the vynal redone on the loading door. Other than that, the rest of my roof seems to be very solid with no signs of any other rust under the vynal.

I was just about to ask, would he take $700? I had one almost identical but it was GREEN all over, interior included.
