1958 Cadillac wins fins ‘n’ chrome class at London Concours


Another familiar face, or car rather, is this 1958 Cadillac Sedan De Ville belonging to Steve Sullivan which was part of the fins and chrome category display at the London Concours at the end of June. Steve has fully restored this car himself over several years and the attention to detail in every aspect of it, from the engine bay to the interior, chrome work and even the grille (parts of which he hand manufactur­ed himself) is quite extraordin­ary.

Judging the class were Sarah Bradley, Ben Klemenzson and Matt Allen from Adrian Flux, who along with Classic American sponsored the class. Other cars participat­ing in the display included previous feature cars like Mark Sumpter’s 1960 Chrysler 300F and Rick Skett’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air and three stunning convertibl­es from the Homan collection: a 1956 Packard Caribbean, 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz and a 1958 Mercury Park Lane. Watch out for a full report on this perfectly polished prestigiou­s event in next month’s magazine!
