1929 Cadillac with history,


This car had not been started in over 50 years and after several months of work, the original 341 cubic inch flathead V8 engine is now running nicely. Every inch of this car is original. The paint, pin striping, leather upholstery, top, wood wheels, chrome, wiring and all mechanicals are untouched since 1929 and all in excellent condition. The tires were from the 1950’s and have been replaced. Technological innovations on the 1929 Cadillac include first year for synchromesh transmission, first year for safety glass and first year for chrome on nearly any American automobile. Before that cars had nickel plating. Cadillac was always at the forefront mechanically and their R&D was arguably some of the best in the world. Hopefully I’ll be able to take it for a spin before the snow flies
