Cadillac offered an astounding 50 different body styles in 1930-31, and that's only in the new 452 V-16 model. Heck, there were eight different windshield configurations, each with an assortment of body styles. It is one of the most audacious, confident moves ever made in automobile history and, if reputation is any guide, it ended up doing exactly what Cadillac wanted: blowing all its competition into the weeds and overwhelming them with quality, refinement, performance and design that still epitomizes the Classic Era. One look at this assured, opulent, luxurious, distinctive two door coupe, production number 16 of body style 4376, confirms the attraction of Cadillac's first series of 452 V-16s. An older restoration which appears to have been done to concours standards, it has subsequently been driven and enjoyed then had thorough cosmetic attention to return it to nearly concours condition. Finished primarily in Black, it has Maroon hood side panels and roof. The interior is upholstered in Tan broadcloth while the rumble seat is upholstered in weather resistant Black leather. "Imposing" hardly does it justice, with huge chrome headlights, a pair of Pilot-Ray driving lights, dual chrome horns, chrome fender marker lights, chrome radiator stoneguard, a set of chrome wire wheels mounting wide whitewall tires, chrome hood side ventilation doors, dual sidemounts with Black cloth covers and rear view mirrors, wood running boards, a chrome luggage rack with Black cloth covered luggage trunk and abundant chrome mouldings around the vee windshield and side windows. The interior is as elaborate including an engine turned dash panel, Jaeger instruments and abundant wood trim and mouldings. The engine compartment and chassis are as impressive as the exterior, highlighting the Harley Earl-designed engine that was as carefully designed and styled as the V-16's exterior and interior. It is a correct, no-stories, car with all parts as they originally emerged from the Cadillac factory and Fleetwood's coachworks. Great Classic Cars get no better than this, a superb, sharp, elegant, imposing Cadillac V-16 that will line up confidently beside any Packard, Lincoln, Duesenberg or Marmon.
