1919 Cadillac Type 57 Brewster Cape Top Phaeton

1919 Cadillac Type 57 Brewster Cape Top Phaeton Left Front Quarter with Top Up

A fascinating Cadillac built for the multi-millionaire Rhode Island Senator Peter Gerry, with stunning custom coachwork by Brewster & Co. on a massive, extended wheelbase chassis. Well-known history with numerous respected collectors and enthusiasts. A one-of-a-kind motorcar that joins two of the most revered names in American motoring – Cadillac and Brewster.

Presented in a striking red and black livery with discreet gold coach lines, the Cadillac is an appropriately imposing motorcar fit for a wealthy and powerful statesman. The restoration has aged remarkably gracefully and still appears fit for shows and concours events. Paint quality is excellent all around, and the dark red/black livery suits the car’s subtly sporting character. It rides on body-color artillery wheels with meaty black wall tires while the twin rear-mounted spares accentuate the Cadillac’s already impressive length. Period accessories include nickel-plated headlamps, Boyce Moto Meter, Delco Dayton horn, and folding “fat man” steering wheel. The Victoria top is fully functional, and the driver’s weather equipment accompanies the sale should the next owner wish to use the car on driving events.
