1931 Cadillac V-12 Convertible

With the introduction of the 370 series V-12 engine in late 1930 Cadillac filled out the most complete offering of luxury automobiles in the world. Falling between the unparalleled overhead valve 452 V-16 and the quiet, refined 355 V-8, with the addition of the 370 V-12 Cadillac capped Alfred P. Sloan Jr.'s aspirational ladder in size, style, luxury and performance that was comparable with any luxury marque in the world and exceeded most. Harley Earl's Art & Color Department conceived a plethora of coachwork for this impressive offering then General Motors built them in the coachworks of Fisher and Fleetwood. With ample, smooth power from Owen Nacker's 235hp overhead valve 12-cylinder engine, the 370 V-12 was capable of effortlessly pulling the most luxurious closed multi-passenger coachwork. When powering a relative lightweight like this Fleetwood Convertible Coupe on the 140" wheelbase chassis the performance can be exhilarating. Finished in subtle tan with brown fenders, maroon leather upholstery and a tan cloth top piped in maroon, it is fitted with chrome spoke orange hub and rim wire wheels with chrome trim rings, whitewall tires, dual side-mounts with strap-on mirrors and has a rumble seat, golf bag door and folding luggage rack. Its restoration was completed to high standards by a recognized expert in the marque and has some subsequent miles that only serve to substantiate the restoration's quality and the superb driving experience of the Cadillac 370-A V-12 drivetrain and chassis. It will be a delightful automobile for tours and events while also showing proudly in local shows and in the lineup at the end of a fine day's cruising.
