1930 Cadillac V-16 Imperial Landaulet Cabriolet
1930 Cadillac V-16 Madame X Imperial Landaulet Cabriolet
Body Style #4155-C
Engine Number: 702584
†††††This extremely rare 1930 Cadillac V-16 uses the Fleetwood body style designation of 4155. The proper name for this particular body style, as designated by Fleetwood, is an Imperial Landaulet Cabriolet. It is one of only eighteen #4155 landaulet body styles built for the V-16 chassis. This particular example is more specifically designated as a 4155-C and is one of only two Imperial Landaulets built with a convertible top that opens to expose only the rear seating area-a design that was made popular by many of the famous European coachbuilders of the period.
††††This car was sold new and delivered to the Cadillac dealer in Antwerp, Belgium through General Motorís Export Division. At some point, it found its way to Switzerland. The last European owner retained this car for nearly 40 years before it was sold to a collector in the United States in 2012.
Under the hood, the original and correct sixteen-cylinder engine, #702584. †The firewall retains the original trim tag, which clearly labels the car as the rare, 4155-C Imperial Landaulet Cabriolet, body number 18. The car also has an interesting and original brass data tag used for export models only. A copy of the original Cadillac build sheet, which accompanies this car, clearly indicates that this V-16 Cadillac retains its original engine, chassis and body components.
The interior is finished in period correct, wool broadcloth. The interior was professionally replaced many years ago and appears to be correct and is in very nice condition. The rear compartment includes vanity lights and built-in arm rests. The dashboard retains all of its proper gauges and controls and features a rare Kilometer speedometer that shows the mileage to be 43,861, which is very likely to be original. The thin, die-cast trim ring is missing from the dashboard, although we believe reproductions of this part are available. The folding landau top is in very good condition and fully functional. Indeed a rare find !!!
Priced at $285,000
1956 Pontiac Star Chief
This top of the line 1956 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible had been with the same owner for the last 21 years.
The Pontiac runs and drives great. The original interior is excellent as well as the carpeting. The exterior of the car has been stripped and refinished in the original factory colors. Note the chrome has also been refinished as new, including the massive front bumper and grille assembly.
The dash is full of chrome, including a bold face for the RARE factory air conditioning panel in the center of the dash. It performs perfectly thanks to a modern compressor mounted in the engine bay.
Other options include power steering, power brakes, power top, automatic transmission, a continental kit with a fully enclosed spare tire and Pontiac chrome skirts to finish off the great look.
This car makes a great statement at any show or one the road!!
