An attractive, high-quality restoration with sporty Fleetwood roadster coachwork. One of Cadillac’s best driving cars of the Classic Era, ideal for tours and road events.
This lovely 1931 Cadillac 355-A has been part of two very prominent collections for many years. It wears body style number 4502, the 2/4 passenger Roadster by Fleetwood, considered the most sporting offering in the catalog for 1931. The body rides atop the standard 134” wheelbase chassis, which imparts the car with graceful proportions. This car has been treated to a high quality restoration that, while older, remains very attractive inside and out. It is finished in a tri-tone color scheme with the main body finished in off-white contrasted by burgundy fenders and swage lines, with brighter red wheels, frame and coach stripes. This former CCCA National First Prize winner wears a very high quality restoration that has aged quite well. Since its show days, it has been enjoyed carefully, mellowing slightly into a very attractive and pleasing car that would be a wonderful companion for touring. Paintwork remains in very good order throughout, and the chrome plating on the numerous accessories is outstanding. Numerous options include dual side-mount spare wheels, dual steerable Pilot-Ray driving lamps, radiator stone guard and goddess mascot. Other fittings include a chrome trunk rack, cowl-mounted search light and wind wings. It rides on a set of whitewall Firestone tires mounted on beautiful wire wheels that feature body color rims and hubs with polished stainless spokes. Throughout the car, the detailing and finish work impart a sense of quality, showing this car was restored properly and has been very well preserved since.
