Here’s a find by L. Seddon at the Cohort, up for auction in the UK. This Series 62 Extended Deck sedan is one of 20,952 examples built in 1958, and it’s sporting an Olympic White and Dakota Red two-tone job (not original). According to its registration, this glitzy ride was imported to the UK in 1979.
These are the gaudiest of Harley Earl’s creations, and while being a bit too much, there’s been nothing like them ever since. For those who liked to parade with flamboyance, these ’58s were just the ticket.
The history behind these exuberant machines has already been covered at CC. Just follow the link below to check out their history.
(Note: The Auction listing calls this a ‘Series 62 Sedan DeVille’).
