In 1934, Cadillac made a shift to more streamlined styling designs. The coachwork featured smooth, round front fenders, and moving things like the horns and radiator cap under the hood gave the new Cadillac a significantly sleeker appearance. Independent suspension in the front and a rear stabilizer bar made the ride significantly smoother as well, and the 315 cubic inch V-8 saw an increase in power. A resounding success, the car remained mostly the same the following year. This example is quite possibly the quintessential 1935 Cadillac. Featured in numerous Cadillac publications, it was ordered in April of 1935 from Capitol Cadillac for that year’s Shrine Convention in Washington, D.C., as evidenced by the build sheet and photographs of the event. Wonderfully finished and equipped, the car wears bright red paint over a tan leather interior, and rides on beige wheels with red wheel discs and whitewall tires. Dual enclosed sidemount spares are mounted with a mirror each, while Super 8 spotlights can be found up front and a folding luggage rack in back. The front and rear doors are joined in the center of the car by huge, fabulous chrome hinges, and the unique rear fender skirts incorporate a faux chrome hubcap into their design. The interior is just as lavish with a heater, radio, restored gauges, sun visors, banjo steering wheel, cigarette lighter mounted in the back of the front seats, and a robe rail. After a fully photo-documented ground up restoration, this car’s presentation is absolutely stunning. The paint, chrome, interior and details are all exquisite. A CCCA Full Classic, it would be more than at home on a competitive concours field or on a parade route.
