    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.

  • 1926 Cadillac 314 Custom Phaeton

    $98,500(£80,504.05) $98,500(£80,504.05)

    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?”
