Footman James & Kingstown Shipping Car of the Year Round 7

The final round of this year’s Footman James & Kingstown Shipping took place at the American Autumn Classic held at Prescott Hillclimb. This entertaining weekender takes place at the stunning Bugatti Owners club, nestled in the pretty hills above Cheltenham. Sunday turned out to be the warmer, sunnier and drier day, with a lot more American cars attending. Amongst them was this stunning Silver 1964 Cadillac Sedan de Ville belonging to Graham Macdonald from Tenbury Wells, just down the road.

Whilst the car has undergone a respray, it’s the stunning condition of all the trim on this car and the interior which is really eye-catching. None of the chrome or mazac trim on the car appears to have been restored, yet there is virtually no pitting or deterioration whatsoever, something one would expect on most cars over half a century old. Likewise the interior is in original, unblemished condition and it would appear the car has never been smoked in, as both ashtrays an cigar lighters are unused.

Like they say: “It’s only original once”, and it would seem that Graham has found himself a remarkably original, pampered vehicle that is in extremely good condition and a credit to its previous custodians. We look forward to welcoming Graham and his magnificent Cadillac onto the Classic American stand in a month’s time at the Classic Motor Show, NEC over the weekend on November 9-11th.
