For 1938, V-8 Cadillacs featured distinctive grille designs—one for the Series 60 and one shared by the larger Series 65 and 75 models. While the Series 60 used thin horizontal grille bars that extended around the sides of the squared-off nose, the Series 65–75 cars had tall, vertical die-cast egg-crate grilles. Inside, the gearshift lever on all models was relocated from the floor to the steering column.

Carrying model number 38-7529, the convertible sedan was part of the Series 75 with exclusive Fleetwood bodies; Fisher bodies were used only on lesser Cadillacs. The Series 75 shared the 141.5-inch wheelbase with the Series 90 V-16 flagships; the two differed in styling forward of the cowl. Weighing in at 5,110 pounds, the convertible sedan carried a base price of $3,940 before options. Most handsome was the impressive Victoria-style rear roof with blind quarters. Fleetwood produced only 58 of the large four-door convertible sedans in 1938, adding to their rarity, exclusivity, and desirability today.

This stately Cadillac was purchased by the current owner from John A. Wieckelt of New Berlin, Wisconsin, in 2004. Little is known of its prior history. Since purchase, it has been routinely serviced and cared for by Mark Clayton of Restore Cars in Castle Rock, Colorado. The owner enjoyed driving the car and had fitted it with modern radial tires for that reason. The restoration done with lacquer paint was likely done more than 40 years ago.

It includes both a clock and heater and is fitted with a Haartz top and carpeting from Bill Hirsch. A reprint of the owner’s manual is also included. The Cadillac is described as a solid car, including the wood component, and will serve well at local shows and touring events.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az20.
