1919 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria for sale
Current customer rating: (48 votes) based on
This is an incredible example of a Prewar Cadillac. This Type 57 was originally shipped on October 18th. 1919 and was delivered to Cadillac Auto Company of Boston. The history of the car is undocumented but we have been told that the car was once owned by Henry P Morgenthau. Former Secretary of the Treasury. Evidence of the custom body features can be seen in the additional body line painted maroon and outlined in crème. complimenting the traditional black fenders and dark green body. The paint is in good condition. proving that it has been well cared for and stored in climate controlled space for many years. Mechanically. the car runs and drives well and the original fuel system has been restored. The horn functions but not completely and would need attention if you want it to operate fully. We have been told that many automotive historians point to the Cadillac V8 from the late 1910's as the first mass produced V8 motor in history (Also of note. the motor has removable heads. Another industry first!). The original motor is still in the car. and it runs very smooth. Additional unique features include drum headlights. nickel plated radiator. custom cowl sidelights and cowl mounted port and starboard running lights. a nautical touch for the original owner who was a yachtsman. as the story goes. We do know that the car was renovated. at some point. by Wolfington of Philadelphia. as noted by the badge on the lower front side of the body on the passenger side. We've learned that during the early 1900's. Wolfington would store and service bodies for the Philadelphia elite. allowing customers to run a summer (open) and winter (closed) body on the same chassis! We believe this was the winter body for someone in that area. but have no documentation to prove it. Inside. the factory "Fat Man" tilting wheel functions perfectly. The brown interior matches the description that Cadillac used in their 1919 promotional book. “Rich mohair velvet in neutral tones to harmonize with other colors. ” Another interesting custom feature to point out is that the standard front passenger "jump seat" was upgraded to a full size seat to match the driver. It still folds forward. allowing access to the back row of seating. The matching front seats is an elegant touch to the well appointed interior. Regardless of the owner history. this very rare car is a truly incredible piece of American history and deserves to be enjoyed and appreciated.
