Miss Pearl: 1954 Cadillac roadster

posted in: Custom | 0

This is big. This is a custom 1954 Cadillac roadster named Miss Pearl. This white lady began as a 1954 series 62 Cadillac but after Motorama-inspired ideas it became a fully custom 4-seater. It was designed and built by Patrick Douglas with the help of his crew at Douglas Designs. Every panel is rebuilt, the frame is custom made tubular one and the Northstar 32-valve engine is taken from Cadillac XLR. So has transmission, suspensions, brakes. The dark wood floors, steering wheel, and side panel accents were inspired by the wooden boats on Lake Coeur d’Alene. Miss Pearl — the ultimate land yacht.
