GM’s Cadillac brand has always been synonymous with luxury within the American market. From past presidents to ZZ Top, Cadillac’s have been an American favorite for decades. The 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction will be taking place on January 12-19 in Scottsdale, Arizona, and all of you Cadillac fans out there will get a kick out of this 1960 Cadillac Custom Roadster built by Justin Carrillo and Designs by Daryl’s of Visalia, California.

This one-of-a-kind Cadillac roadster was the 2011 SEMA Show GM Design Award for Best Vehicle winner. The car has over 1,000 man hours on it in the metal and paint work alone. From the ground up, every single nut and bolt on it is brand new. The frame and components are powder coated for a lasting finish and the car sits on airbag suspension with 22 x 9-inch Raceline Billet wheels. 4-wheel Classic Performance Products slotted and drilled disc brakes give the car its stopping power.

The body has been heavily modified starting with the hood welded to the fenders. The cowl is handcrafted to encompass the windshield and the windshield frame is handcrafted to give a sleek dropped-back look. The tail fins are raised and molded without taillights further accentuating the stretched out look of the car.

The interior features a stretched out dash that accommodates the sectioned-to-fit 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air gauges. The bucket seats and custom door panels are wrapped up tight in Red Ultraleather with Ostrich inserts; each with billet medallion inserted into them.

Underneath the molded hood we find a 454 big-block Chevrolet detailed with a set of custom one-off valve covers and polished accessories. The air cleaner reads, “Big Daddy”, and it fit considering the engine is quite snug inside the engine bay.
