1935 CADILLAC 355-D ALL-WEATHER PHAETON for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this sensational 1935 Cadillac 355-D All-Weather Phaeton featured in Bright Red with Tan leather interior and matching Tan canvas convertible top. This body style was known as the Series 20, V-8 convertible sedan for 5 passengers, style #35-671, and it carried a list price of $2,955.00. This particular car has a very interesting story behind it.For 1934, Cadillac styling introduced more streamlined designs. Their coachwork featured smooth, round front fenders. Relocating things like the horns and radiator cap under the hood gave the new Cadillac a significantly sleeker appearance. New, independent suspension in the front and a rear stabilizer bar made for a significantly smoother ride 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 Shriners 62 Annual conclave in Washington D.C. as evidenced by the delivery note on the build sheet and photographs of the event. The original color was Dania Cream with Tan top and interior, and Brilliant Green wheels with optional painted metal wheel covers. A copy of the original build sheet and a period black and white photo showing the car as it was delivered and used as the Shriners Parade Car for the 1935 Conclave and throughout the 1930s are included in our photo presentation.Wonderfully finished and equipped, the car currently wears bright red paint over a tan leather interior and rides on beige wheels with red wheel discs and whitewall tires. Dual enclosed side-mount spare tires 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 lavishly equipped 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.This significant Cadillac was restored to the highest standards by Blair Hilborn, who owned Hilborn Restorations of Bishop, CA, as his personal car. Tragically, Hilborn and several friends were killed in a small plane crash en route to the Hershey Meet about three months after the Cadillac restoration was completed.This Cadillacs presentation remains 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 tour.
