Custom 1955 Cadillac Coupe Deville built by Brandon Penserini of Altissimo Restoration. I'll let Brandon describe it as he's does so well.

    I've been in the restoration and custom paint business for the last decade and a half. During this time , we've won national titles and have had the privilege of showing and winning some of the highest honors in the industry. I have noticed during this time that the quality of custom cars is improving but the art has never quite reached near a restoration quality. So a few years ago I decided to buy a Cadillac and attempt to rattle the custom world and break its barriers of mediocre build standards.

    After six months of looking around the state I found a Cadillac in my hometown of Napa Ca. The car was in fairly good condition, matching numbers, fully documented and belonged to a fellow who collects and restores Cadillacs. We made a a deal and I started replacing inferior parts with even better factory parts. I bought a second car with perfect trim and a better roof for the chopped top. So now we had two cars to work with, both of which had completely original parts.

    Cadillac in the 1950's almost got it right. It was a challenge to improve on a design that was in nearly perfect form. After a year of the finest craftsman in the industry (namely- John Aiello, Raymond Gonzalez and I) working the tedious details of customizing an already gorgeous car, we ended up with a 55 Cadillac that still very much resembled its original form but was completely restyled from bumper to bumper in a very traditional 1950's style custom. All of this work was executed to the the highest standard resulting in a Coupe DeVille that Cadillac wishes they had done.
