Although the most noticeable exterior change on Cadillac's 1929 line were the fender-top parking lights there were significant, and important, functional changes including synchromesh "clashless" transmissions, pressure-lubricated wrist pins in the 341 cubic inch 90hp V-8 engines, double-acting hydraulic shock absorbers, safety glass and a completely new brake system that made the 1929 Cadillac’s among the best driving and most comfortable automobiles on the road. As usual there were literally dozens of available body styles. Among the most sporting was this style 1183 Dual Cowl Phaeton by Fisher. Built on Cadillac's 140" wheelbase, the design is timelessly elegant. At 4,635 pounds it was the lightest body available from Cadillac, even lighter than the rumble seat Roadster, to get maximum performance from the engine and chassis. This example has been beautifully restored to Concours quality standards and is distinctly and attractively liveried in a metallic bronze with tan fenders and accent over rich light brown leather with a tan cloth top piped in brown. Equipment includes brown painted wire wheels with wide whitewall tires, dual side-mounts with tan cloth covers and chrome rings, a single Pilot-Ray driving light, dual folding windshields, wind wings, a bugler radiator mascot, running board courtesy lights and a large spotlight mounted on a pedestal on the right running board. A brown leather covered luggage trunk nestles behind the close-coupled bodywork between the rear fenders. A tan painted rack for additional luggage folds up behind it. As expected for a restoration of this quality the engine bay is fully restored and detailed even to the extent of having an electric trouble lamp mounted on the firewall. It is a 1982 AACA National First Prize winner that has been exceptionally well preserved, attesting both to the quality of the restoration's materials and workmanship and to the care and attention it has received subsequently. This 1929 Cadillac 341-B Dual Cowl Phaeton is a sharp, gorgeous automobile ready to be shown with genuine pride and driven with satisfaction.
