In 1931 Cadillac offered an astounding array of models including V8, V12 and V16 engines, four cataloged wheelbase chassis and a nearly unimaginable array of cataloged coachwork from Fisher and Fleetwood. It was an offering which only General Motors, the titan of the American automobile industry, could support. The V8s were all built on the shortest '31 Cadillac chassis at 134". Most were bodied by Fisher but Cadillac offered seven bodies by Fleetwood on the 355-B V-8 chassis, among them this gorgeous style 4502 rumble seat roadster. While Fleetwood roadsters also were available with V-12 and V-16 chassis they came only on the 140" and 148" wheelbase chassis making this 134" wheelbase V-8 particularly well balanced and attractive. It is an older CCCA National First Prize winning restoration liveried in light tan with maroon fenders and accents, red coachlines, maroon leather upholstery and interior trim and a tan cloth top and boot. The six wheels have polished stainless spokes, maroon hubs and rims and chrome trim rings. In addition to the rumble seat it is equipped with a spotlight, dual sidemounted spares with mirrors, wind wings, Pilot-Ray driving lights, a radiator stone guard, goddess radiator cap, trunk rack and a set of side curtains for weather protection. This is a done-right, high point show car that still is in admirable, exquisite condition. It has a great look and will be an honored participant on tours and in the evening gatherings at the end of the days' runs.
