A whole yard full of vintage Caddies
« on: May 30, 2012, 01:34:29 AM »
I thought I'd share this photo with the group from the yard of a fellow who I just bought a '60 Sedan from.  He had them all lined up in order of the year in his yard from 58-66.  Quite the sight and I just had to snap this photo!

He had a couple of '59s there, one of which was a flat top model.  Anyone have any idea what that one might be worth?

Hello Trevor

We really appreciate you for sharing the picture.

Value is dependant on condition, rarity, car market trends, and location. You did not share the continent, country, provence, or state where the cars are located. Without viewing or knowing running ability, interior or exterior status on 1-6 scale makes a evaluation virtually impossible. Also the number produced has a direct correlation with the price. Of course, as Matt Larson says, "If the top goes down the price goes up".

Please help us educate you.

Hello Trever,

What a wonderful picture to view.  I kept trying to see more, look into the windows of the cars and walk through the grass along side of them.  (It didn't work! LOL)

If you have any more photos, please post them.

Thank you, Richard

I love that '61 4-window 4-door hardtop -- a very unique 1961-only roofline that did not appear to be nearly as popular as the 6-window style.

Yes, all of the cars in the pic I posted are for sale.  The owner is selling the property and needs to sell all of the cars.  He was a very good person to deal with (even helped me get a title for the 60) and his price was reasonable ($700).  All of the cars look to be project cars that have been sitting for 30-35 years, but are complete cars.

My cars are in Bakersfield,Ca. I will post some pics in the future. The cars are not all painted and perfect,some are original,some are cars I am putting back together,they don't all run and some have been parked since the 60s and 70s.I drive a 60 flat top as my every day car. Yes I will sell cars on ocassion,you just have to want them more than I do $$ I like my cars,also like bringing cars back to life that people have left for dead!I do all the work myself. It is a lot to keep up with and some times life gets in the way I just keep going best I can. Ken Perry

That's a classic photo!  My yard would look like that if I had a yard to store cars.  Can't fit much on 75x125 city lot  :)

Hi Trevor,

Are they anyway near Missoula, MT?  I'll be there next month and would enjoy seeing this yard for myself.  Thanks for posting the picture.

Hello Trevor

I noticed your response regarding the location of the vehicles from your picture was exclusive instead of inclusive.
Since you became a member of this forum you have exhibited quite a lot of curiosity with a vast amount of knowledgeable answers from the CLC membership. We are available to help everyone.
However, we also would enjoy quid pro quo. Please share with the interested individuals where you go fishing.

Reciprocity is the penalty of leadership.

Hi Trevor,

   Montana is a pretty big state, and some of us are possibly interested in presueing purchasing a car or two. Would the owner allow you to post contact information and general location so we could decide if we want to persue the matter??

Some of the responses here are downright silly. I don't have the owner's permission to post his contact information.  If anyone is interested in the cars, please send me a pm with your name and email address and I'll gladly pass it along to the seller.
