Wildcad

The 1959 Cadillac Coupe De Ville is arguably the ultimate expression of car-as-sculpture, with every curve, surface, nook and cranny stuffed with ornate details and shining fripperies. So for the discerning customiser, it makes sense to take this artistic canvas as a base and paint across it something that takes the car to its logical conclusion; in the case of Wildcad, 'the biggest, lowest, baddest kustom car with a full metal, hand-sculptured interior'. The headlining is all-metal, formed from the roof of another donor '59, while the centre console features a whole Coupe De Ville tailfin, complete with working illumination. Exterior-wise we find a substantial roof-chop and some wonderfully subtle flames over the mile-deep purple paint, while under the bonnet is - what else? - a super-detailed Chevy 454ci big-block. Oh, and just for fun, the doors, bonnet and boot are all remote-controlled, just to baffle people at shows. Why not, eh?
