1959 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible
This is another car I've been working on in LDD lately. It is an improved version of my 1959 Cadillac Eldorado.
About this creation
I started redesigning my 1959 Cadillac a couple years ago. I had wanted to include working suspension, steering, and brakes, but I soon realized it would be hard to do at this scale. I still have my real life version of the car, and I plan to rebuild it to look like this one. This will require many new parts, so it may be a while before I get around to it. I made many small changes to the car, including front and rear "glass", redesigned engine, transmission and engine bay, and redesigned underside.

I realized that the Eldorado has chrome on the top and bottom of the rear quarterpanels, but no chrome stripe in the middle. I prefer the chrome stripe, and it was easier to build, so this is now a Cadillac Series 62. This also means I had to redesign the air cleaner slightly. I may modify this car at a later date to the Eldorado style trim.

The car is 16 studs wide (same as my original model), and is made of 1,871 bricks.



I redesigned the chrome stripes on top of the fenders, shown above is the most recent version. Most of the other pictures will show my previous style stripes, made out of plates instead of rods

Driver side, now with a side mirror



Rear view. The rear "grill" has been redesigned to match the front one



Passenger side



Front view. The grill has been redesigned so that the hood takes the chrome strip with it when it is raised

Top view

Underside. I redid the exhaust system, using plates, and also changed the frame so it is more realistic

The armrest in the front seat folds down

The engine bay. The air cleaner is black instead of gold, and there is only one snorkel instead of two

Engine bay, driver side. New master cylinder design and washer fluid reservoir added

Engine bay, passenger side. HVAC box and blower motor now visible

All open

Here are a few pictures with the folded convertible top. I had wanted to make a roof that actually folded, but I realized it would be almost impossible at this scale while still looking good

The "bullet" taillights













The engine and transmission removed, passenger side. Alternator and A/C compressor visible

Engine and transmission removed, driver side. Power steering pump visible

Shortly after taking the pictures, I added transparent bricks to the rear window

Quoting Petey Bird That's one fantastic model you've got there. I especially like the smooth look of the seats and the front end. Really nice work.
