Campbell, CA, October 01, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Introducing “Miss Pearl”: Designed and built in the glacier lake town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, this recently completed full custom 1954 Cadillac roadster was inspired by the cars of the General Motors Motorama shows. Miss Pearl began as a 1954 series 62 Cadillac. Saving it from oblivion, the top had been removed and used as a salad bar in a 1950’s diner; the car has been completely rebuilt. Every panel, wheel well and floor pan from firewall (with the Cadillac emblem rolled into the metal) to the trunk have been remade. The custom built tube frame and cage support accommodate a Cadillac XLR Northstar 32 valve engine, drive train/transmission, front & rear suspension, as well as brakes. The suspension has been upgraded with coilovers, making this roadster a “driver” to cruise in. Miss Pearl is built as a four place roadster. The dash was sectioned and handmade to house a single Haneline all-in-one gauge. The windshield was purposefully installed upside down while the taillights were modified to fit the 1958 Cadillac model. The paint is a rich pearl white while the custom upholstery is made of the highest grade leather. The light buff and dark coffee colors of the leather compliment the wooden features of the interior. The dark mahogany wood floors, steering wheel, and side panel accents were inspired by the wooden boats on lake Coeur d’Alene. See www.mycadillacroadster.com
