Cadillac had long established its reputation as a leader for innovation and quality in the luxury car market by the 1920s. The long-running and fierce battle with Packard for sales supremacy meant Cadillac engineers were constantly striving for new ideas to refine and enhance their vehicles. As the decade drew to a close, Cadillac was highly motivated to retake their standing at the top of the sales charts from their cross-town rivals. The introduction of the junior LaSalle brand in 1927 helped greatly in their quest, and was intended to complement the senior models, which in 1927 consisted of the Model 314 V8 series. A dizzying array of body styles were offered, from the standard Cadillac bodies, to the Custom lines from both Fisher and Fleetwood. We are very pleased to offer this truly stunning 1927 Model 314 wearing a Double Cowl Sport Phaeton body from the Fisher Body Custom line. It is presented in magnificent colors; the all-black body and fenders accented with a simple but bold red inlay and subtle cream-colored coach lines. The combination is breathtaking, and the quality of the restoration equally impressive. This highly desirable and stylish 314 was treated to a comprehensive, concours-quality restoration and has seen only light use since completion. It has been shown and obsessively well cared-for, remaining in impeccable condition. The black paint is beautifully applied over laser straight panels, and the extensive brightwork and detailing are in beautiful condition. It is fitted with drum headlights, very rare dual, drum-style Pilot-ray spot lamps, drum cowl lamps, Cadillac mirrors mounted on dual-sidemount spares, and the first known Cadillac radiator mascot – a herald in Cadillac regalia, proudly trumpeting the praises of the marque. In the rear is found a painted trunk rack with a fantastic period trunk and black canvas cover. This is an extremely handsome body that looks elegant with the top up or down, though we are particularly fond of the sporting attitude it takes on with the top down and both windscreens folded flat. Occupants are treated to a gorgeous red interior that matches the red flash on the bodywork. Gray carpeting bound in red provides a bit of subtle contrast. The leather upholstery is simply exquisite, showing little signs of use and virtually no creasing. There is a beautifully finished wood-rimmed steering wheel perched atop a chromed steering column, and complemented by a matching wood gear knob. The highlight of the interior, however has to be the instrument panel; a stunningly ornate affair with a wood fascia surrounded by gorgeous gold inlay. The instruments themselves are fully restored, and the Cadillac crest is proudly inlaid in gold. Rear passengers are treated to their own cowl and windscreen for comfort and weather protection, as well as courtesy lights and a storage compartment built into the rear of the front seat. The engine, drivetrain and chassis are all detailed to concours standards, the quality of the restoration backed by a CCCA Senior Award badge earned in 2005. This fabulous Cadillac has been the proud showpiece of a dedicated marque enthusiast who has bestowed upon it years of care. We love the Harley Earl styling the breathtaking Fleetwood detailing, and would proudly use this handsome, desirable and rare Cadillac for show or touring. This is a very worthy addition to virtually any collection.

By the time General Motors acquired Cadillac in 1909, Henry M. Leland’s company had already established itself as a leader in innovation, mechanical sophistication and luxurious quality. That spirit continued under the auspices of General Motors as it is Cadillac that brought consumers the first electric starter, the first electric lamps, the first synchromesh transmission, the first dual-plane crankshaft V8 and even the first V16 engine. From their earlies models, Cadillac was renowned for their exceptional build quality and elegant style and General Motors proudly placed them at the pinnacle of their product line where they remain to this day. Cadillac was riding a wave of success going into the 1930s. A wise decision to include a “junior” brand (LaSalle) kept the company afloat as the economy faltered. They entered the decade with a heady confidence that spawned the incredible V16 and V12 models. But Cadillac’s mainstay for the 1930s was the 355 series; an 8-cylinder model manufactured between 1931 and 1935. It was available in variety of standard body styles that ranged from a formal limousine to a sporting 2 door roadster. Cadillac’s model naming system meant the model name coincided with the engine size, but for some reason that changed in 1931 as the 355 carried over the Series 353’s 5.8 liter, 353 cubic inch V8 L-head engine. Output was a stout 95 horsepower, plenty enough to give the big Cadillac very respectable performance for its day and earn Cadillac strong sales, with more than 10,000 examples built for ’31. 1930s elegance abounds with this fine 1931 Cadillac 355A Convertible Coupe. This former CCCA Premier Award-winning example has been fully restored to a high standard and remains in excellent condition today. It is finished in an attractive combination of deep maroon over black, with a set of complementary deep maroon wire wheels. It is a lovely machine with fine quality paintwork and detailing. Of the eleven standard body styles available, the Convertible Coupe by Fleetwood ranks among the most desirable on the 355 chassis. Its sporting, elegant appearance recalls carefree playboys enjoying the trappings of their wealth as the roaring twenties came to a close. The convertible coupe combined the style and open air experience of the roadster, but with the additional comfort provided by roll up side windows and a more substantial folding roof and more luxurious trim. As with most 355-series Cadillacs, our example is well-equipped with dual sidemount spares topped with Cadillac mirrors, a mesh radiator stone guard, Goddess mascot and a pair of Senior Trippe Light driving lamps. While the restoration is approaching two decades old, the exterior cosmetics remain very strong, and this example presents very well indeed. The interior is trimmed in beautiful tan leather in excellent condition on the front seat, rumble seat, door cards and kick panels. Woodgrain trim caps the doors and dash, and the instrument fascia features a beautiful Art-Deco sunburst pattern that is the signature of the 355 Series. Original instruments remain in excellent order and all switchgear and controls function as they should. Fitment and quality of the detailing is exemplary, as one would expect from a former CCCA award winner. The convertible top is trimmed in tan canvas, with excellent fit and easy, smooth operation of the frame. Cadillac’s venerable 353 cubic inch V8 is very nicely presented in the engine compartment. It is correctly finished in porcelain-like black with correct hardware, hose clamps and detailing. This should rank as one of Cadillacs greatest engines, as it provides smooth, reliable running and outstanding performance for the era. In fact, the 355-V8 offered performance that was nearly on par with the headline-grabbing V12 and V16 cars, thanks in large part to much lighter weight when compared to its multi-cylinder stablemates. Likewise, handling and braking were more predictable as there was less weight over the front axle. The three speed synchromesh transmission makes for easy operation and strong four wheel brakes provide peace of mind in virtually all conditions. Our example is a fine running machine, needing nothing to be enjoyed on the road. There is a good reason why the Cadillac 355-series is such a highly collectible motorcar. It combines the grand elegance of the early 1930s in a mechanical package that is unintimidating and approachable for even the novice enthusiast. Our example has been treated to a very high quality restoration and has been carefully tended to since and has benefited from some light recent freshening. It remains attractive enough for show, yet is well-sorted for CCCA CARavan touring. This is a fabulous all-rounder; a beautiful restoration on a beautiful automobile.
Our Serie 62 Convertible left the factory in 1951, the year after the Cunningham Le Mans team proved that a Cadillac could do more than just drive "Miss Daisy". Its penultimate owner purchased it in California in 1992 and soon after had the convertible restored in time for the 1994 National Cadillac Club Show where it was judged and deemed a numbers matching Senior example, listed as # 168 in the International Cadillac LaSalle Club registry. This extensive 1994 restoration brought the car back to as-new spec, including its original color scheme of Mist Gray (paint code 10) over a red leather interior. The last owner of this Series 62 Convertible bought the car in 2007, driven it sparingly. In 2009, the engine and transmission were pulled, tested, and mechanically refreshed, while attending to electric and hydraulic systems . Since the car has been driven a mere 400 miles time enough to prove its roadability. Â
Cadillac’s V16 range first appeared in 1930, and after initially strong sales, production had dwindled as the American economy struggled and such lavish motorcars were generally frowned upon by even the wealthiest of buyers. However, in spite of its costly nature, the V16 still served its role as a halo model for Cadillac, so it remained available through the decade. For the 1938 model year, Cadillac completely redesigned the car with an all new engine and body design. Displacing 431 cubic inches, the new V16 was a more conventional design, with a simple side-valve configuration in a rather unusual 135-degree cylinder bank angle. The engine produced 185 horsepower (about 10 more than the old unit) and weighed a staggering 250 pounds less than the original V16. It was also significantly cheaper for Cadillac to produce, and therefore more profitable. As America was recovering from the Great Depression, this proved the right move for Cadillac and for buyers who wanted the prestige of the famous V16, yet in a slightly more affordable package. Sixteen cylinder Series 90 models rode on the same basic chassis and 141 inch wheelbase as the V8 Series 75, which allowed for sharing of bodies from the Fleetwood and Fisher catalog. Twelve catalog body styles were available for the 1938-1939 model years, all designed under the guidance of the masterful Bill Mitchell, protégé of Harley Earl. Of those bodies, one of the rarest and most expensive was Style Number 9067, the stunning Convertible Coupe by Fleetwood. The streamline era was taking full effect by 1938, with the front fenders and radiator grille becoming fully enveloped into one. Headlights were still separately mounted but were soon to be fully integrated into the fenders as well. Dual sidemount spares were still fitted, but concealed beneath painted steel covers. Stylistically, the 1938 Cadillac bridged the gap between the traditional classic era and the post-war streamlined style. The Convertible coupe in particular, has incredible presence; it is a large car, with its two-seat body style stretched dramatically over the 141-inch wheelbase chassis. Just ten examples were built in 1938 making it among the rarest and most desirable of the series. This beautiful Cadillac Series 90 is one of those ten original Convertible Coupes bodied by Fleetwood in 1938. It is a very attractive car wearing a high-quality older restoration that has recently been sorted for reliable and enjoyable touring. Original build sheets indicate this car (engine number 5270250) was first delivered to Rochester New York, painted in Moleskin Gray as indicated on both the build sheet and the original Fleetwood trim tag. By the 1960s the car had found its way to Pennsylvania when it was discovered along the side of the PA Turnpike by noted early CCCA member Ted Johnson. Mr. Johnson rescued the Cadillac from the roadside and had it restored by George Holman of Massachusetts. Mr. Holman subsequently purchased the car, eventually trading it to Rick Carroll, a well-known collector from Jensen Beach, Florida. Today, this beautiful Cadillac presents in very good condition, still wearing its older restoration well. The bright red paint suits the sporting nature of the body quite well, and while it does show extensive cracking in the lacquer finish, it remains glossy and attractive. The body fit is good, and the panels very straight, showing the car was properly restored and carefully tended to since. Chrome trim remains generally very good with a few areas of minor pitting or bubbling found here and there, but overall still glossy and attractive. Bumpers are straight and gorgeous and the lovely cast grille shows only the slightest of age. A pair of Guide Super Ray driving lamps are fitted and the car retains its correct original headlamp lenses. On the whole, it is a lovely, imposing car that turns heads and while it shows its age in places, remains quite attractive overall. Inside, the brown leather shows just some minor creasing and slight cracking, with some wear evident around the edges of the front seats. It retains a pleasing patina that does not detract from the inviting, usable nature of this Cadillac. Door panels and kick panels are in excellent condition and pair of jump seats are fitted in the rear for occasional rear passengers. The woodgrain dash is beautifully preserved with excellent finish and lovely original instruments. Paint and chrome finishes inside are very good, as is the original Banjo-style steering wheel. Cadillac’s 431 cubic inch L-head V16 is very nicely presented, with correct type finishes and paint. The presentation is excellent and the engine has benefitted from recent servicing and sorting. Some of the work performed in the last few years includes a full fuel system flush with a new fuel tank, rebuilt shock absorbers, new front springs, new wide whitewall tires, rebuilt brake hydraulics, rebuilt carburetor and a full chassis service with cleaned and greased lubrication points. It now performs beautifully and is a delight to drive, especially given the 185 horsepower output and silken delivery from the V16. An approved CCCA Full Classic, this exceedingly rare and imposing Series 90 is an excellent candidate for CARavan touring or for simply wafting along your favorite roads, enjoying the effortless power and impeccable style of this beautiful Cadillac.
Cadillac’s Series 75 debuted in 1936, hitting the market as a step above the standard Series 60, which itself had just been introduced as the entry-level Cadillac model. The Series 70 and 75 (70 having the shorter wheelbase) featured new, streamlined styling refined by Fleetwood as well as a new monoblock, 346 cubic inch V8. The monoblock engine incorporated the crankcase and cylinders in one casting, which was topped by L-type cylinder heads. The new engine was both lighter and more powerful than the old unit, and it was continuously refined until the 331 cubic inch overhead valve engine debuted in 1949. The monoblock Cadillac engine was renowned for smooth and reliable running – as well as its power. The US military even adopted a version of it to power the M5 Stuart light tank during WWII. Generally speaking, as the top-line V8 powered cars (the Sixteen was still available through 1940), 70-series cars were equipped with formal bodies, given their upmarket stature and price. As before, Fisher and Fleetwood were the preferred in-house coachbuilders for Cadillac, and a wide variety of styles were offered on this high-end chassis. 1937 saw the Series 75 get some very minor styling tweaks over the previous year, most notably, an intricate and attractive egg crate die-cast grille that flowed into the streamlined hood. Styling changes were minimal but they added up to a car that looked clean and well resolved. The engine was enhanced with a lighter flywheel and other refinements for additional reliability and power output. As before, Fisher or Fleetwood would supply bodies, however by 1938 the high-end Fleetwood bodies would be the only option for the Series 75. This 1937 Series 75 Town Sedan wears coachwork by Fleetwood; a lovely and elegant design that embodies the early days of the streamlined era. Recently from an estate, this Cadillac was used regularly until a short time ago, and it remains in generally good order as a sound, solid example that could benefit from some light freshening. All steel bodywork is finished in dark blue paint which is generally good, showing a few flaws and wear in places, but remains shiny and attractive. Likewise, the brightwork is in good order with straight bumpers and body trim, and average-quality plating with a few pits appearing in places. Running board rubbers are in good condition and the lower trim on the driver’s running board shows a few dings. The original wheels are shod with wide-whitewall tires as is appropriate for this formal body style, and original hubcaps appear in good order. Dual side-mount spares are hidden with painted metal covers and an integrated trunk round out this elegantly styled Cadillac. Inside, the cabin is trimmed in tan broadcloth front and rear. The seats and door panels appear in fair condition with no rips, tears or other severe wear, however the upholstery is a bit tired in places and could use some attention. Tan carpets are serviceable but would perhaps best be replaced. The dash is finished in the same blue as the exterior, fitted with factory correct instruments which appear to be in good original condition. Wood windscreen surrounds and door tops are in generally good condition save for one area of damage on the passenger side of the dash. Rear passengers are treated to spacious accommodations and the lack of a divider window allows for more space and comfort up front for the driver. Rear doors, quarter glass and the rear window are all originally fitted with retractable silk blinds for privacy. Details in the rear include a folding rear arm rest, grab straps, robe rail and lovely art-deco styled courtesy lamps in the C-pillars. The same tan broadcloth used up front lines the rear compartment and presents in similar condition; usable as is, though it could also benefit from a spruce up. The engine compartment is nicely detailed, and the car runs and drives well. Despite the years it has under its belt, the restoration seems to have held up well in mechanical terms, with a solid and sound undercarriage. The car was used regularly by the previous owner until his passing, which led to a period of disuse in recent years. The 1937 Cadillac Series 75 is a recognized CCCA Full Classic and these cars make wonderful choices for tours, especially if family and friends want to share in the experience. Just 4,332 Series 75s were produced in 1937, with only a small portion of those wearing this handsome Town Sedan body. This is a sound, family-friendly Cadillac that has room for improvement if so desired, or it can simply be enjoyed as is. Either way, this Series 75 represents a strong value and is an excellent gateway to the world of Full Classics.
The end of World War II signaled a dramatic shift in the American auto industry. Car production had halted suddenly in 1942 as factories were retooled for the war effort. Now that the conflict was over, auto production could resume, but the problem was that design and development of new models had all but halted during the war as well. So most manufacturers had to make do with hastily refreshed versions of their existing pre-war models. In the case of Cadillac, that meant resuming the brilliant Series 62. The front end design was subtly reworked with a new grille and fender profile with beautiful effect. The proud grille and beautifully contoured body would serve as the basis for Cadillac’s design language through the rest of the 1940s and into the early 50s. The car was available in a number of body styles and trim packages, with the Fleetwood 60 Special topping the sedan range, and the Series 62 Convertible the ultimate of the two-door models. Cadillac still considered itself “The Standard of the World” in this era, and the cars were lavishly equipped with automatic transmissions, V8 engines, leather upholstery, power accessories and so forth. The model proved very popular with buyers, remaining essentially unchanged through 1947, with nearly 40,000 units of the Series 62 sold. This beautiful 1946 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is a CCCA Premier and 2009 AACA National 1st Prize winning example, carefully restored to an extremely high standard in 2007 and beautifully maintained since. The Fisher built body is finished in its original and attractive shade of Madiera Maroon, which coincides with the code number 9 on the trim tag. The paint quality is very good, laid down on straight panels with very good alignment. The doors shut with a satisfyingly solid feel that is the unmistakable mark of Cadillac quality. Hailing from the early days of the chrome era in American design, this Series 62 wears its extensive brightwork well. The large chrome grille, chrome bumpers and polished stainless body trim are in excellent order, straight and free of dings, pitting or blemishes. Among the optional extras is a pair of factory reversing lamps. Body color steel wheels are fitted with chrome beauty rings and chrome Cadillac center caps as original. Combined with wide whitewall tires, the look is striking and elegant. Opening the substantial door reveals a cleverly integrated running board where the fender sweeps into the door. The interior, designed by Fleetwood, is elegant and beautifully detailed, trimmed in supple red leather to a very high standard. Door and quarter panels are equally beautiful, trimmed in correct original patterns. This car was delivered very well-equipped from the factory, with power windows, a power front seat and power operated tan canvas top. Other features include an original radio, heater/defroster (an option for 1946), anti-glare mirror, windscreen washer and Hydramatic transmission. As with the exterior, the interior trim and brightwork have been very well maintained since the restoration and present in excellent condition. The leather seats show only the slightest creasing from use, appearing quite fresh yet inviting. The rear seat appears to have barely been used and remains excellent. Maroon carpeting is executed in the correct material and patterns. These early post-war Cadillacs are marvelous cars to drive, and the lush interior of this example only enhances the experience. In 1946, Cadillac was still three years away from unveiling its revolutionary OHV V8 engine. So beneath the hood lays venerable and proven flathead “monoblock” V8 displacing 346 cubic inches (“monoblock”, referring to the fact that the cylinder block and crankcase were now one casting). Particularly when mated with the four-speed Hydramatic automatic transmission, these Cadillacs were capable of near 100mph performance with the exceptional smoothness that is the signature of a flathead engine. On this example, the engine is well detailed, finished in correct Cadillac green with black porcelain manifolds and correct gloss black accessories. An optional windscreen washer jar is affixed to the firewall and the presentation is very good, with correct hoses and clamps, lacquered ignition wires, and correct braided wiring loom. The engine show some signs of regular running, though it also appears to have been well maintained in the process. The undercarriage and trunk are likewise well detailed and tidy, with original jack, tools and spare wheel in place. A top boot is included to ensure a lovely finished look when the top is down. The comprehensive restoration by Art Voss was extensively documented, with photo albums included in the sale. The Series 62 is the last Cadillac model to be approved as a CCCA full classic (through 1947), and is a popular choice for touring thanks to its excellent performance and road manners. This car’s quality presentation as well as its proven show and tour record make it the ideal candidate for a collector who wishes to truly enjoy one of the finest American cars of the era as it was originally intended – for top down cruising in impeccable style.

The Series 60 was Cadillac's mid-priced entry in the luxury vehicle market when it appeared in 1936. The Series 60 was the brainchild of new Cadillac manager, Nicholas Dreystadt. Debuting in 1936, it filled a gaping price gap between the LaSalles and series 70 models. Initially it rode on a 121.0 in (3,073 mm) wheelbase and shared the B Body with with cars from LaSalle, Buick and Oldsmobile. The exterior featured a new Harley Earl-designed look with a tall, slender grille and split vee-shaped windshield. This body used Fisher Body's new Turret Top one-piece roof and Bendix dual-servo brakes. "Knee-action" independent suspension, first introduced by Cadillac in 1934, was a welcome novelty for the mid-price market at the time. Under the hood was the new (less expensive) Monobloc V8 5.3 l (322 cu in) engine produced 125 hp (93 kW), just 10 less than that in the larger Cadillacs. The Series 60 immediately became the company's best-selling model, making up half of all Cadillacs sold the first year. The next year, displacement on all Monobloc Cadillacs was 346 cu in (5.7 L). This new engine produced 135 hp (101 kW), more than all V8 Cadillacs of just a few years earlier. For 1938, the Ha
For most of Cadillac’s early history, The Standard of the World was more than simply a marketing slogan used to sell cars. From its earliest days, the company went to great lengths to live up to that claim by building exceptional quality, highly innovative motorcars. In the 1930s, Cadillac’s entry-level LaSalle as well as standard Cadillac V8 models were selling well, with much-needed cash being added to the coffers. Cadillac decided to throw their hat into the ring among manufacturers around the world who were engaging in a “multi-cylinder” engine war. In 1930 Cadillac shocked the motoring world with introduction of both a V12 and an unprecedented V16 engine. The introduction of these two marvelous engines put manufacturers such Hispano-Suiza, Lagonda, Rolls-Royce and chief cross-town rivals at Packard square in Cadillac’s sights. Both engines were designed simultaneously by Cadillac engineer Owen Nacker, and they shared the same basic layout as well as many common components. The V12’s output was a healthy 135 horsepower, while the V16 put out a full 175 horsepower – a headline grabbing figure for its day. The Model 370 V12 did have its advantages over the V16, being lighter it therefore offered better handling and drivability. The twelve was also significantly cheaper than its sixteen cylinder sibling – starting at $3,795 or about $2,000 less than the ultra-exclusive V16 – the difference almost covering the cost of a new LaSalle! Various custom and semi-custom bodies were available, with the standard cars being among the first projects for GM by the great Harley Earl. Cadillac struck a near perfect balance with the 370A; while the V16 provided the headlines and the ultimate in exclusivity, the V12 Model 370A cost less but was nearly as luxurious, offering nearly the same performance and elegant style. As a result, 5,733 V12 Cadillacs were sold in the 1931 model year, pushing Cadillac closer to achieving their bold claim of becoming The Standard of the World. Wearing highly desirable Convertible Coupe coachwork by Fleetwood atop a 140” wheelbase chassis, this 1931 Cadillac 370A V12 has been treated to a no-expense-spared restoration with absolutely stunning results. It is finished in a gorgeous period-correct color combination of a green main body accented with black body lines and black fenders. The crisp, stylish looks are punctuated with green wheels fitted with polished stainless steel spokes wrapped in proper whitewall tires. Completed within the last five years, the concours-quality restoration is exemplary and remains very fresh both inside and out. Of course, the paintwork is beautiful with fine detailing and beautiful finishes and the extensive exterior brightwork has likewise been restored to a high standard and precisely fitted to the body. Sporty and stylish, the Fleetwood Convertible Coupe body is equipped with a rumble seat, signature stainless radiator stone guard, goddess radiator mascot, dual sidemount spares, and a luggage rack. Included with the sale is a copy of the original build sheet. The beautiful two seat cabin is trimmed in tan leather with properly detailed tan door cards and carpets. Signature 370A trim includes the distinctive engine-turned alloy fascia with wood inserts and wood door caps. As with the exterior, the interior is restored to a high standard and impeccably detailed. Original instruments and switchgear all function as they should and the leather seats still appear very fresh, showing very little use since completion. Occasional passengers are relegated to the rumble seat, which is trimmed in the same beautiful tan leather as the cabin. When compared with the roadster, the Convertible Coupe benefits from additional weather equipment such as a lined folding soft top with exterior landau irons, and roll up side windows. With the added comfort provided by the top and side windows, the convertible coupe is a fabulous choice for touring; sporty yet comfortable and well-suited to all weather conditions. Cadillac’s exquisite 368 cubic inch, L-head V12 engine delivers a healthy 135 horsepower with incredible smoothness. The V12 was nearly as powerful as the V16, yet was also quite a bit lighter over the front axle, making it the driver’s choice among the two. The theme of exceptional quality continues with a restored drivetrain that functions as beautifully as it looks. The V12 shared the V16’s signature ribbed valve covers and black-enamel finishes. In our opinion, this V12 ranks up there with the most beautifully designed engines of all time. Fresh and ready for enjoyment, this remarkable Cadillac 370A has never been shown in its restored state, making it eligible for virtually any major concours in the hands of its next owner. The same care and attention paid to the cosmetics also grace the drivetrain and it returns impeccable road manners and performance. Four wheel brakes, a smooth shifting synchronized transmission and hydraulic shock absorbers make it an absolute delight, while the power and smoothness of the V12 engine allow it to perform in modern road conditions. With exquisite looks and performance to match, this 370A Convertible Coupe is a truly outstanding example, fresh and ready for the concours lawn or the open road alike.
Cadillac’s venerable model 355 was heavily reworked for the 1934/35 model year. Starting from the ground up with an all new chassis that featured so-called “Knee Action” independent front suspension, the 355-D received a fresh new look thanks to totally reworked styling. The chassis was now fully concealed beneath the curvaceous new body and the car elegantly proportioned with a long hood and flowing, voluptuous fenders. This was clearly in response to Packard’s gorgeous 1934 models and evidence of automobile styling creeping ever closer to fully enveloped, streamlined bodies. In terms of the powertrain, the 355D was essentially the same as its predecessors, still powered by the smooth and powerful V8 engine that now produced 130hp at 3400 rpm. 1935 marked the last year for the long-running V8 engines that formed their roots back in 1927. A variety of body styles by Fisher and Fleetwood meant plenty of options for buyers and sales of the 355D were strong, with over 8,300 cars sold between 1934 and 1935. The story of this fabulous Fleetwood-bodied Cadillac Town Sedan begins on November 12, 1934. This fine motorcar was originally invoiced to Alvan T. Fuller’s Cadillac Automobile Company of Boston, who acted as the primary distributor for both Packard and Cadillac automobiles. The build sheet is annotated with “ship after 1/2/35” and “SHOW CAR” indicating this was the actual car displayed at the 1935 Boston Auto Show. Incidentally, Alvan Fuller went on to serve as a congressman and eventually Governor of Massachusetts; no doubt thanks to the many highly connected clients he earned selling both Packards AND Cadillacs! Following the auto show, this Town Sedan is believed to have been returned to Cadillac. It was then sold on to its first owner in California. It remained there for the next four decades, eventually finding its way to well-known collector Owen Franklin Hoyt who retained it for many years. In more recent years, it made its way to New Jersey where, after finding its most recent keeper in 2013, it was treated to a thorough mechanical sorting with the goal of reliable road and touring use. Originally finished in Cathedral Grey with Vincennes Red wheels, it was repainted in black some time ago, which suits the elegant lines of the Fleetwood body quite well. The paintwork is older and shows some signs of age and use, but it remains quite handsome with an honest appeal. Recent work has included re-chroming of the exterior brightwork which smartens up the appearance quite nicely. Aside from the respray in black, the body is highly original and shows excellent panel fit and alignment. Being a Town Sedan body, the cabin is free of a passenger division, allowing for a more comfortable driving position with little sacrifice to passenger comfort in the rear. New carpets have been fitted as part of the refresh, however it is believed the grey whipcord upholstery is original, as it matches the detail on the build sheet. Upholstery condition is outstanding, particularly when considering it is over 80 years old. The interior chrome and polished brightwork appear to be original, displaying an inviting and dignified patina. The instrument faces wear fabulous art-deco markings and appear to be all original. The matching Jaeger clock is particularly interesting and a fantastic period touch. With the idea of making a thoroughly capable tour car, the previous owner thoroughly vetted the running gear. New tires have been fitted on the black wire wheels, along with a newly fitted clutch, rebuilt brakes and a new exhaust system. Concurrently, the engine was given a top-end overhaul, with new valves and ancillaries such as water pump, starter, generator and carburetor being replaced or rebuilt. It now performs with the unmistakable solidity that comes from a car that has never been fully torn down and restored. Thanks to the efforts of the previous owners and the inherently wonderful-driving nature of the 355D, this rare and elegant Fleetwood-bodied Cadillac is a competent, reliable tour car for CCCA CARavans or any other adventures you may plan.
By 1917, Cadillac had already established itself as a leader in innovation and quality. Cadillac’s founder Henry Leland was a true pioneer of American industry and a champion for mass produced, precision machine manufacturing. Cadillac’s breakthrough of the electric Self-Starter system and electric lights in 1912 were largely responsible for cementing the internal combustion automobile’s dominance over electric and steam. Three years later, they introduced another significant innovation – the world’s first mass-produced V8 engine. The L-head engine was designed by the Scottish born engineer D. McCall White and featured two cast iron cylinder blocks with integral heads mounted atop an aluminum-copper alloy crankcase. It was an ingenious design that utilized fork and blade connecting rods to provide clearance for opposing cylinders as well as dual water pumps when most cars made do with simple, inefficient thermo-syphoning cooling systems. The engine produced an impressive 70 horsepower and was a marvel of smooth running and linear power delivery. There was even an optional Kellogg auxiliary air compressor which could be used to inflate tires in the event of a puncture. With continual refinement, it was this V8 engine that truly put Cadillac at the top of its market segment, proudly supporting their bold motto – The Standard of the World. Handsome and imposing, this 1917 Cadillac Model 57 Opera Coupe is one of our personal favorites. Three-passenger Opera Coupe bodywork is a lovely formal style that is rarely seen today. It is quickly distinguished by its dual oval rear windows and tall, upright proportion. This wonderful example wears its older restoration well, with Cadillac Blue main body subtly offset by black fenders and black leather topping. Panel fit and paint finish quality is excellent and in keeping with the original high level of build quality these cars were famous for. It rides on a set of wooden spoke artillery wheels wrapped in black wall tires that help enhance the imposing, almost sporting appearance. A rear mounted spare wheel keeps the body lines clean and uncluttered, while adding visual length. The nickel detailing is in excellent order and provides a touch of bright flash. An interesting feature of this body is the fact that the central B-pillar can be removed with thumb screws that transform this formal elegant body into one of the earliest iterations of the “pillarless coupe”. Rather interestingly, the driver sits alone up front with accommodations for two passengers on the rear bench seat. A folding jump seat sits in the front footwell for the occasional fourth occupant inside, while a leather-trimmed rumble seat is reserved for two additional very occasional passengers. The “Fat Man Wheel” folds out of the way to allow the gentleman more ample of girth to climb aboard without the possibility of embarrassing himself in front of female companions. Seats, interior panels and door cards are all trimmed in period correct Bedford cord to a high standard. Trim, carpets and interior fittings are in excellent order throughout. Original instrumentation includes speedometer, fuel pressure gauge and ammeter while a Moto-Meter atop the radiator keeps watch on engine temps. An interesting feature is the mechanically dipped headlights which work through a system of rods and linkages attached to the headlight reflectors, all operated via a lever on the steering column. It just goes to demonstrate the level of thoughtful design that Cadillac was famous for. By 1917, D. McCall White’s masterpiece V8 engine had received some important upgrades. Lighter weight pistons were introduced, improving efficiency and drivability while improvements to the 3-speed transmission made for smoother and more reliable operation. Our example presents very well, with correct finishes, fittings and wiring. It is a strong running example that is ideally suited for touring with the CCCA or other nickel-era clubs, thanks in no small part to the powerful and smooth engine and very well restored chassis and running gear. The Cadillac Model 57 is a very significant part of the history of the automobile. It was a Model 57 that, in 2014, was the very first vehicle to be named to the HVA’s National Historic Vehicle Register, shining new light on these robust, beautiful and important cars. Our example is sure to please thanks to its excellent, restored condition and well-sorted mechanical nature. We are very pleased to offer this fantastic Cadillac and we hope you get as much joy from it as we do.
1940 Cadillac Series 75 Brunn Towncar Chassis Number: 3320424 It was December 1939, almost 75 years ago, when wealthy Ohio industrialist Elroy J. Kulas placed his order for the last custom-built Brunn Town Car. This was the end of an era. The Brunn Company had a reputation for unparalleled quality. It is beautifully crafted with a precision that has not been diminished by the decades since new. Unlike other custom bodies fitted to a chassis provided by a major manufacturer, this Brunn design includes a special cowl and all aluminum bodywork. Riding on the 141", new-for-1938 Series 75 Chassis and powered by the war-proven 346 cubic inch L-head V-8, this is not only a rare and striking automobile, it is a joy to drive.

1948 Cadillac Series 62 Saoutchik Cabriolet ONE-OF-TWO Chassis # 486237307 This custom Cadillac is one of two similar cars bodied by Jacques Saoutchik of Paris, France. Saoutchik was known for his extravagant designs, taking many risks with sweeping shapes and copious amount of chrome. The Genius of Saoutchik's design on a large chassis is demonstrated in his ability to minimize the overall scale of the car by concealing the size of the wheels as well as using painted lines to reduce the height of the cowl. The early owners of this car included Paul Kassoff and Louis Ritter. Mr. Ritter was the founder of Ritter Brothers Furriers of New York. He was well known for his extravagant wealth, flamboyant lifestyle and eccentric taste. There is no wonder why he choose such a car for his stables.

Large early 20s American with powerful V8 engine, strong open motoring with full weather equipment. Re-bodied when restored about 20 years ago. Photographs will appear shortly.
In 1930, Cadillac stunned the automotive world with the introduction of its breathtaking new sixteen-cylinder models. Sales of the V8 and entry-level LaSalle models were strong in spite of economic hardships, and Cadillac was determined to show its competitors that it was, indeed the Standard of the World. Instantly, the V12 and especially the V16 models catapulted Cadillac to the top of the luxury class. An extraordinary array of coachwork options was available to satisfy the most discriminating buyer, and everything from the body to the engine bay was designed with beauty and elegance. The V12 and V16 engines shared many common components, but it was the V16 with its turbine like smoothness and unprecedented 175 horsepower output that grabbed the headlines. Subtle changes were made for the 1932 models which included a longer wheelbase, new carburetors, a mechanical fuel pump, heavier axles and larger brakes. Also new for 1932 were adjustable shock absorbers operated from the dashboard to further tune the ride to satisfy passengers. All Cadillac transmissions were fitted with quiet operating helical-gear transmissions, eliminating the whine and crash of a straight-cut gearbox. 1932 marked the first time a series of Fisher bodies became available on the Sixteen. These included sedans, coupes, a roadster, a convertible coupe and three open phaetons. In fact, these were the only phaetons available on the Sixteen, and just six were built, a single standard phaeton with no division, two sport phaetons with a long rear cowl and passenger windshield, and three special phaetons with the short rear cowl. As for Fleetwood bodies, the range was curtailed somewhat. The 30 choices offered in 1930-31 had been reduced to 21, sedans, cabriolets, limousines and a single convertible coupe. The 1931 experience had no doubt tempered Cadillac’s expectations, and history validated the wisdom. At year’s end, just 296 Sixteens had been sold versus 1,709 V12s. This V16 chassis began life wearing a formal sedan body which, when acquired by Bill Hatch of Chicago was in a rough state. The formal sedan body was beyond repair, so another body was sourced – this handsome Special Phaeton, which was originally fitted to V12 chassis 1301344, is nonetheless period appropriate and extremely handsome. The body, finished in light metallic blue with dark blue fenders and swage line, is a spectacular Fisher design that wears much of its original sheetmetal, thanks to a careful restoration. The paintwork remains in very good order, wearing the years since its restoration extremely well. The fit and finish are extremely nice, and the chrome is largely in very good order. It is lavishly detailed with a proper 1932 Cadillac Goddess mascot, chromed hood vents, twin long-trumpet horns, and dual sidemount spares with painted covers. It has been recently treated to a fresh set of blackwall tires that impart a magnificent sporty look when combined with the navy blue wheels and polished stainless spokes.This fine example is also a previous AACA National First Prize winner. Like the exterior, the interior is fabulously detailed and very well presented, showing little use on the restoration. Blue leather on the seats appears virtually unworn, and the excellent carpeting and door panels are accented with exquisite woodwork on the dash, door caps and rear passenger fascia. The original AC speedometer reads 120 mph – which must have seemed astonishing in 1932. A Jaeger eight-day clock keeps time, and the instrumentation is replicated in the rear for passengers to keep an eye should the driver be having too much fun exploiting all of that power. In spite of the fact that there are some years on the restoration, this Cadillac still looks remarkably fresh. The previous owner was a skilled mechanic who ensured it was maintained in excellent mechanical order and it remains ready to enjoy on the road. The engine compartment is clean and well detailed, with mainly correct finishes and fittings, with just a few areas showing signs of regular use. An AACA National First prize winner, it also runs and drives extremely well and should offer its next owner a thrilling and rewarding ownership experience.
Cadillac has rarely struggled to find the words with which to promote itself, advertising its early Model A as “the automobile that solves the problem” and introducing its Model G as having “received all the care and thought that could possibly be given a car costing twice as much.” When it built this 1926 V-8 Custom Phaeton, its advertising promised that “Cadillac not only delights you with the perfection of its service, but it contents you with the deep, abiding conviction that you have the finest thing of its kind that money can buy.” To say that it would delight and content its owner was no more puffery then than it is today. This Fisher-bodied Series 314 Custom Phaeton rides a 138-inch wheelbase and its combination of a rear-mounted trunk and single spare rather than sidemounts produces an attractively long and smooth look. The effect is enhanced by the two-toning of a delicately light green body with medium green fenders and splash aprons, belt stripe and detailing. Twin-beam drum headlights, front and rear bumpers, wood artillery wheels and a tan convertible top complete the exterior appearance, while inside, the deep green carpeting contrasts nicely with the tan upholstery and wood steering wheel. The convertible top boot, side curtains, glass windwings and wiper for the opening windshield are among the features making the car well-suited to touring, but every bit as important, of course, are the 314-cubic-inch V-8 with its 85 horsepower, three-speed transmission, four-wheel brakes and the reliability and performance for which Cadillacs are known. Whether to tour with it or show it might be the biggest decision facing its next owner, but fortunately, that doesn’t have to be an either/or decision as the Cadillac was the recipient of a meticulous – and very proper – nut-and-bolt restoration from the ground up. The goal of the work was to ensure its place among the upper level of show cars and that the plan succeeded is proven by its Classic Car Club of America First Place and Senior National awards. Although the car has been driven and enjoyed, it continues to show well, a strong tribute the craftsmanship that went into its restoration and the care it’s been given since then. For the right owner, this Cadillac can provide the best of both of those worlds with no cause for hesitation. “Think of a car,” the company advertised in 1926, “about which you do not even have to think – of a car you can buy with a confidence and a certainty that does not admit of a single second’s doubt. Is there any other element of motorcar ownership which even remotely compares with this solid conviction of value and performance which you feel about the Cadillac?”
