Forever Knight Original Cadillac Convertible For Sale
My name is Brock Jolliffe. I worked on the TV series Forever Knight as the Special Effects Supervisor for season two and three. When the series ended in 1996, I expressed an interest in Nicks 1961 convertible Cadillac. Subsequently Nick Gray (FK Producer) and I came to an agreement and I purchased both the hero 1961 Caddy and the stunt 1962 Caddy in April of 1996.
Through the years, I have enjoyed the Cadillac thoroughly, but I feel now that it is time to let someone else care for and enjoy this beauty. I have decided to sell Nicks 1961 Hero Caddy. This car is an important piece of the Forever Knight Series, unarguably the most important prop on the show. I would like it very much, to go to a good home. Its home is currently in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada locale.
If you are interested in the car please contact me, with your references, at email@example.com. I am posting the car for $ 30,000. 00 USD. As there are likely to be several interested parties, I will consider
highest offer. I will be open for offers, through emailing to the above address, starting Sunday May 28, 2006 and will accept offers until 7 pm PST (10 pm EST) Sunday June 11, 2006 . I will give individuals a chance to
raise their offer if they wish to, as I will notify all parties privately, of the current offer status.
The balance of payment is due within 30 days. I will continue to store the car inside, at the owners risk, for up to 60 days if requested. I reserve the right to decline any and all offers, at my discretion.
This Vehicle is the ORIGINAL car that Geraint Wynn Davies drove in, during the course of filming the TV series Forever Knight. I have not modified the car since I received it in April of 1996. Regular maintenance
and service has been performed. I also had the front and rear bumper assemblies re-chromed, a new carburetor, replaced master cylinder, wheel cylinders and exhaust. I purchased a presentation cover for the top (covers it over when it is folded down). The car has been stored indoors always. It comes with a vehicle blanket and cover. Engine and transmission run fine. The car is a very solid car and is in excellent condition. Of course, one needs to remember that it is 45 years old; it is not going to run, operate
and be as reliable as a new car.
I would prefer that the prospective buyer personally view the car, to ensure that there are no surprises, but I understand that potentially great distances may be involved with this transaction. The new potential owner is encouraged to view the car before we finally seal the deal. I want to make sure that the Caddy and the new owner get along well together. I will be very happy to respond to any questions regarding the car.
The interior is pretty much as it came to me, other than I have cleaned it up and installed some missing carpet and kick panels. I spent a full week cleaning up and restoring the dash area. There is a small scrape on the lower rear of the front fender, on the passenger side from the transport guys, when they loaded the car on the trailer and I have also noticed that since I had the paint redone (7 yrs) there are signs of a small area of paint distortion on both sides at the lower rear of front fenders, likely from the beginnings of rusting in this area. There are no perforations in the paint.
I have driven it on 50 mile jaunts for surveys a number of times. It always turns heads where ever it goes ! People love this car! It has been popular at the car club 'Show 'n Shine' as well.
I will put the car through an Ontario vehicle safety inspection, and provide this certificate. This means that the car will meet the Ontario Vehicle Safety Standards. But as the car is likely to be sold outside of the province, I will not be responsible for it meeting any other province or state regulations. The car will be sold with the understanding that it will be the buyers responsibility to get this car to meet any safety standards required to make the car roadworthy anywhere other than the province of Ontario. Essentially
this means sold as is.
All Customs taxes, duties or other related fees and charges are the responsibility of the purchaser.
Any State, Federal or Provincial taxes that may be due upon the sale or transfer of ownership are the responsibility of the purchaser.
All transportation and shipping costs are the responsibility of the purchaser.
All costs related to the transfer of ownership, plates and tags are the responsibility of the purchaser.
What this all means is, that I am selling a vehicle that is in good driving condition (Shes a Beauty) but the purchasing fee does not include anything else other than the cost of the car itself.
