Boasting the increased power and beautiful streamlined styling new to the 1932 Cadillac, this five-passenger coupe was originally delivered to Brooklyn, well-optioned with dual side-mounted spares with metal covers and mirrors and a Heron radiator mascot. The car remained in New York until at least 1974, then moved briefly to New Jersey. It was acquired by Jay and Berta Leon from a dealer in Houston in March 1978; photographs on file show that it was in solid and apparently original condition.
Following its restoration in Viceroy Maroon and Garnet, it achieved Senior honors in the Classic Car Club of America by 1982, with badge no. 1034. It was then shown at the 1984 Pebble Beach Concours d Elegance, winning 2nd in Class. Afterward, it was fitted with a very subtle, tasteful modern air conditioning system and AM/FM/cassette stereo, and began a second career as a favorite driver for the Leons.
In 1987 the Cadillac was driven from Texas to Colorado for the Rush to the Rockies CARavan, covering over 1,600 miles. This Cadillac drives beautifully, the Leons noted in their file. The V-8 engine provides enough power to easily drive 55/65 mph on the highway. In 1990 the car was featured in The Classic Car by Beverly Rae Kimes (p. 136).
Now a well-preserved older restoration, still highly authentic and attractive in its appearance, the Cadillac recorded 65,247 miles at the time of cataloguing, and its build sheet confirms the presence of the original engine. Its finishes are still largely crisp and attractive, with the engine compartment being well detailed, and the dashboard gauges being clear and beautiful; the red broadcloth upholstery is tight and inviting, with only minor signs of loving use.
This is a highly satisfying, once and future CARavan entrant, from a fine home of over 40 years.
