1939 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood


The series 75 was Cadillac’s largest and most luxurious offering for the season. The big news was the new engine and a handsome re-revised dashboard, still impressive sixty years later. Top of the line for Cadillac was the Series 75 Imperial Limousine, designed to be the last word in luxury, with an eye watering list price for the time of $5,170, which inevitably resulted in sales of only 626 units for 1949.

Today’s delightful example is finished in Embassy Black, with a sumptuous interior upholstered in Taupe fabric, which features twin occasional seats and all the luxury gadgets expected by a Cadillac buyer. American cars of this era remain as impressive as they were always intended to be, with the distinct advantage that these post-war cars are very drivable as well with the silky V8 well matched to the excellent Hydramatic automatic gearbox.

This is a very handsome and well preserved specimen of what was always a rare car and is now even more so. Its condition indicates careful and sparing use and the car will provide be an impressive ornament to any collection.

Dieses wunderbare Stück in Embassy Schwarz mit opulentem Interieur bezogen in der Farbe Taupe, ist mit den luxuriösen Details ausgestattet, wie es ein Cadillac-Käufer erwartet. Amerikanische Autos dieser Ära bleiben so eindrucksvoll wie sie es schon immer waren, mit dem Vorteil, dass diese Nachkriegsautos mit dem geschmeidigen V8 und dem ausgezeichneten Hydramatic Automatikgetriebe toll zu fahren sind.
Dies ist ein sehr ansehnliches und gut bewahrtes Muster eines sehr seltenen Autos. Sein Zustand zeigt sorgfältigen und sparsamen Gebrauch an, und das Auto wird eine eindrucksvolle Zierde in jeder Sammlung sein.
