1940 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 Convertible Sedan

VERY RARE CADILLAC SERIES 75 CONVERTIBLE SEDAN! ONE OF ONLY 45 EVER PRODUCED! GORGEOUS VEHICLE SHOWING A WONDERFUL. ORIGINAL RESTORATION. VERY PRESENTABLE AND AN EXCELLENT SHOW WORTHY EXAMPLE FEATURING A DIVISION GLASS WINDOW!! OUTSTANDING CADILLAC COLLECTION PIECE!

A splendid year came about for Cadillac designers in 1940. It would be an opportunity to reveal brand new models. and say goodbye to others. It would mark the last year for the V-16 engine option in the Ninety Series. and also the final production year of the LaSalle line with a one year run of the new LaSalle Special series. A new Cadillac Series 62 model was unveiled. along with a one year only Series 72 model. A total of seven distinct Cadillac series designs were available. all with various body choices to choose from. Of them. the rarest in 1940 were the premium Series 75 Cadillac-Fleetwood models. especially in convertible form!

We are extremely excited to have an opportunity to showcase this beautifully restored 1940 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood Convertible Sedan! It represents one of 45 ever manufactured with body number #12! Finished in classic Black (correct color code 1) with Gray Leather interior. accented with Tan Canvass top and matching boot cover. The original 346ci L-Head V8 engine with Stromberg downdraft carburetion remains under the hood with 3-speed transmission. along with a spunky 4. 58:1 factory rear end ratio providing the motivation! This particular example was delivered new to the Chicago Branch of the Cadillac Motor Car Co. on October 30th. 1939 with a host of features! This includes a very rare roll-up division window for added rear passenger privacy. dual side mounts spare tires with steel covers & gorgeous Cadillac mirrors mounted on each side. optional running boards. heater/defrost. push-button AM radio. rear passenger foot rests. Fleetwood monogramed rear clock. front bumper guard. rear trunk light. BF Goodrich wide whitewall tires measuring 7. 50×16. and more!

This outstanding road-going Fleetwood rests on a 141” chassis. and offer the driver a manner of a much smaller vehicle once behind the wheel. The engine starts with perfect ease. and runs so quiet you feel the need to depress the gas pedal to ensure it is still running! An aftermarket water temperature gauge has been added to monitor the engine vitals. but all other instrumentation remains functional. It survives most recently from a prominent Texas collection. and an Atlanta. GA collector prior to that. It remains a very solid car with excellent paint presentation one must truly see in person to fully admire! The chrome appears original and still in remarkable condition! It will go to its new owner with a cloth-wrapped tool kit and a chauffer's hat. For collectors of rare pre-WWII American cars. this vehicle should not be overlooked! Our remarkable. 5-passenger Convertible Sedan may be to only one to find its way to the market in the next decade! Another featuring the partition window glass may never be seen again. Act quickly! Please feel welcome to call with questions. or schedule a chance to review this Cadillac in person! We look forward to working with you!
