Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.

Classic Car Overview

We are pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous 1938 Cadillac 75 Series, Fleetwood Bodied Convertible Coupe, Style 38-7567, Body Number 20 of 44 produced, Vin No. 3271124. A complete body-on restoration, to concours standards but intended also for touring. The quality of the restoration is easily qualified to show at the finest of concours events, including Pebble Beach. Importantly, of the 44 Series 75 Cadillac convertible coupes made in 1938, this is one of only two that were built without side mounted spares. Within the classic car hobby, the side mount deleted cars are considered by far the most beautiful because of the unbroken lines that make the car look much longer and sleeker. The side mounts really shorten the look of the front. So this is only one of two ever made. A brief history of the car: Built in Detroit and shipped by truck to the South Chicago Cadillac Agency where it was sold. It did not spend a lot of time in Chicago, as the owner found a business card in the trunk when the restoration was started from a tailor shop near Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles with a telephone number of WA-0691 (dates to the 1950s). Ed Gunther a long-standing member of the Cadillac LaSalle Club remembers this car being for sale in L.A. back in the 60s. It was sold and Ron VanGelderen restored the car the first time and it was awarded a Senior Badge from CCCA, #697 back in 1975. It was also the cover car for the January 1986 issue of the Self Starter with an accompanying story of the car. Dick Haeberle from New Jersey owned the car which was sold in 1992. It then bounced up to New York for a while owned by Vurdede Pomery who sold it in 2000 and the present owners purchased it on Feb 15th, 2003 from Randy Hall of Saratoga CA. Randy had purchased the car while he was restoring his 1938 75 Series Convertible Sedan. The car at that point was somewhat drive-able and in need of a total redo. Shortly after that the ten year nut & bolt restoration began. Features of the car: To put it mildly this is one massive automobile with a 141-1/2 wheelbase. All 75 (V-8s) and 90 (V-16s) series Cadillacs in this era were on the same chassis and almost identical custom built Fleetwood bodywork. They were offered in many different custom built body styles, the majority being seven passenger sedans This is one of two non-side mounted 75 Series convertible coupes made in 1938. New features for 1938 were, the gearshift was moved from the floor to the steering column. Also new for 38 was the fact that there was no longer a rumble seat on this model, instead there were two jump seats behind the main seat giving this car a trunk that is almost seven feet deep! The car is equipped with the following options: pleated (or tufted) main seat, a working master radio with a cowl mounted antenna, very rare script Cadillac 6 diameter amber fog lights, a cowl mounted heater-defroster unit, full wheel discs, two outside rearview mirrors and the correct car jack and period tool kit.
