Description

Cadillac’s prime contender in the luxury car multi-cylinder race of the 1920s and 1930s was the mighty V12 employed by Cadillac from 1931 to 1937. Since the cars were aimed exclusively at the carriage trade, all came with custom coachwork so that this and the price level ensured that numbers were restricted to a total of less than 11,000 in seven years with the majority built in the inaugural year. The model remains Cadillac’s only production V12 chassis.

From 1927 until 1934 all Cadillac’s were offered with opulent Fleetwood coachwork as an option, though production complexities and cost meant a decline in numbers so that by the end of the decade, Fleetwood bodies were only offered on the 75 or 90 series.

This is a splendid example of mid-thirties styling with an “airline” contour to the rear and side mounted spare wheel and is most appropriately finished in Sable Black with of course abundant brightwork. Interior is similarly opulent, finished in supple Charlton Grey Cloth and featuring a typically well-filled Art Deco instrument panel which retains an abundance of original instruments. Certainly the condition appears to reflect careful use, and this will undoubtedly be a rewarding and pleasant Classic to own.
