Description

Lot #1410 - This Cadillac Series 75 Convertible Sedan was a special-order car for a GM corporate showroom and was equipped with an unusual complement of features and accessories designed to impress prospective buyers. From 1957 to 2008, it was owned by the same family, who researched its history and documented it back to 1946. It was exquisitely restored by a real perfectionist to its original specification using the original Build Sheet as a reference. A well-preserved automobile to begin with, it has retained all of its major components rather than having them replaced. Mark Larder in Homer, MI, did the immaculate work in the interior. It has been judged a CCCA 100-point car, awarded AACA First Junior at Auburn in 2013 and received its CCCA Premier badge in June 2014. This 3-speed Cadillac was featured on the cover of Torque, the Michigan Regional CCCA periodical. Finished in light brown, it has a beige leather interior, tan cloth convertible top, wide whitewall tires, full hubcaps and dual enclosed side-mount spares. Trippe lights, beautiful gray painted dash, radio, heater and roll-up rear division with a clock and cigarette lighter in the back of the front seat. Restored top-to-bottom to a phenomenal, but absolutely correct condition, this is a first-rate and already proven concours car. It is thoroughly documented with a copy of the original Build Sheet and 1936 title.
