Protect-O-Plate: 1968 Cadillac Calais

January 18, 2023 Update – Oddly, after formally submitting their Cadillac Calais for an auction, we have not been able to reach the seller by phone or email.  Consequently, until we do, we are removing this lot from further consideration.

The Guys With Rides team is currently working on preparing the auction for Lot 175, this 1968 Cadillac Calais Two Door Hardtop we will be featuring soon. More details will follow very soon, including a Lemon Squad pre-purchase inspection. So, stay tuned! 

For now, here is the seller’s description:

“Original owner bought new in Cleveland, Ohio at Crestmont Cadillac. The new headliner and seats were recovered professionally, with the receipts. I have the original Protecto Plate for warranty and the original books for the car. Many other receipts for service performed on the car.  New brakes, drums, and brake lines. 39,000 original miles on the car. The car has one repaint, is in very nice condition, has no rust, and has an excellent interior.  Bought at an estate auction from the family who were the original owners. Car runs and drives very well.

      Hi George, thank you for reaching out. We’re in the early stages of pulling all the information for this Cadillac before the auction starts next Wednesday, January 11. So please check back early next week when we have the full listing ready to go, and you can bid on the car. We’re confused about how you are seeing Porsche information for this car. Please send screenshots of what you see to so we can resolve that issue ASAP. Thanks!

          I realized what you meant about the Porsche description in the intro paragraph of this Cadillac. We’ve corrected that. We’re still trying to contact the owner of the Cadillac to get more details and setup a Pre-Purchase Inspection ahead of the car’s auction. Please stay tuned.
