These luxurious full size V8 cruisers were produced from the 1930s until the 1980s. They replaced the 1935 355E as the company’s mainstream car just as the much less expensive Series 60 was introduced.
The Series 75 was Cadillac’s most luxurious and largest car offered by the marque. They had the new engine and a revised dashboard that appeared on other Cadillac models. The most expensive bodystyle and model in the Cadillac line-up was the Series 75 Imperial Limousine which sold for $5,170 and was also one of the most exclusive.
In 1958 the limousine and nine-passenger long wheelbase sedans were available once again. Cadillac Series 75’s received minor external adjustments such as the introduction of a new grille featuring multiple round “cleats” at the intersection of the horizontal and vertical members. New dual headlamps were used and small chrome fins decorated the front fenders. Tailfins were less pronounced and trim attachments were revised.
This wonderful 6 litre V8 with hydraulic valve space regulators and iron alloy engine blocks comes finished in black with a vinyl roof and grey interior, and has only 35,153 recorded miles on its odometer. Initially designed to provide luxurious long distance travelling at high speeds, these cars have achieved just that and this example could have the potential to do so for many more miles.
Additional equipment includes; cruise control, radio, electric seats, hydraulic windows, air conditioning and tinted windows.
