1950 Cadillac Series 61 Rick Dore Custom
Chassis no. 506281048
Built by noted customizer Rick Dore and featured on the cover of Rod and Custom magazine.
This 1950 Cadillac is a recent creation of Rick Dore and certainly one of his finest. Free of many of the clichés of modern customs, this car is pure and elegant. No billet aluminum or Corvette drive trains, this car keeps true to its tradition and the result is stunning. The 1950 Cadillac has been lengthened and converted into a roadster. The three position top is reminiscent of custom Derham coachwork. The tail lights and tonneau cover are all hand fabricated. The look is more concept car than custom. Thankfully the car has been left with its stock drive train and rolls on Cadillac spoked wire wheels. Everything done to the car is respectful of the original Cadillac that he began with, an automotive icon itself. The automotive community has rewarded Dore's latest creation with the highest respect, including the coveted cover car position on Rod and Custom magazine with a six page spread inside. The Caddy has been featured on four magazine covers since its completion both here and abroad and it has dominated the competition and show circuit. In addition to being a striking and sophisticated custom it remains a usable car. Fitted with air bag suspension, the ride can be adjusted for comfortable road use. The superb Cadillac drivetrain is unmodified and should prove powerful and reliable. There are no heavy mechanical modifications that would make this car temperamental and difficult. This is truly one of the most striking customs we have seen and one that appeals to a different sensibility. A study of the design and its influences and inspiration are apparent. This is a car that could be at home in any collection of fine American or European classics.
