1941 Cadillac owned by Blaine Rockhold of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1954, Blaine’s Caddy was featured in the “Reader’s Customs” section in Rod & Custom June 1954. The car was nosed, decked and fenders were de-chromed to achieve a cleaner look. Grille from a 1946 Cadillac was obtained and installed to give it a more modern look. To give it the right stance, it was lowered 2” all around. Blaine hit the nail by installing a set of 1947-52 Cadillac Sombreros on it. Once the bodywork was done, it was painted Strata Blue enamel. The engine sported dual exhausts.[1]
