1935 Cadillac V-8 Five-Passenger Town Sedan

Model 355-D. Series 30. Body Style 6033-S. 130 bhp, 335 cu. in. L-head V-8 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs, and four-wheel, power-assisted mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 146 in. Ordered on 12 November 1934, this sumptuous Fleetwood-bodied Cadillac Town Sedan was invoiced to Cadillac Automobile Company, of Boston, the dealership of Alvan T. Fuller. Fuller was a pioneer distributor of both Packard and Cadillac, later serving as a congressman from Massachusetts and eventually governor. Unusually, the build sheet is annotated “ship after 1/2/35,” and further noted “SHOW CAR,” very rare in the annals of surviving Cadillac history, indicating that this car was displayed at the 1935 Boston Auto Show. After the show, the Town Sedan is believed to have been returned to Cadillac. It was then sold to its first owner in California, where it remained until the 1970s. It was sold to San Francisco collector Owen Franklin Hoyt, who also kept it for many years, and after a couple of subsequent owners, it found its way to New Jersey, where it was acquired by the previous owner. It was subsequently purchased by the current consignor in 2013, who proceeded to undertake further mechanical sorting for reliable driving and tour use. Originally Cathedral Grey with Vincennes Red wheels, by the time it was acquired by the previous owner, the car had been painted black. His intent was to make it an excellent and reliable tour car. The black paint responded well to cleaning and deep buffing. The grey whipcord upholstery is believed to be original, as is detailed on the build sheet. Work under his care included re-chroming of brightwork, new carpets, and a thorough vetting of the running gear: new tires, clutch, brakes, and exhaust. The engine was given a top-end overhaul, including the heads and valves, and the ancillaries, like water and fuel pumps, the starter, the generator, and the carburetor, were rebuilt or replaced. Along with the recent sorting, the result is a thoroughly capable tour car for CCCA CARavans or other excursions, and it is one that can make a proud entrance on any show field—just as it undoubtedly did in Boston in 1935.

Because, well, why not...?

Until the 1980s, it was illegal for a woman to drive a car down Main Street in Waynesboro, Virginia, unless her husband was walking in front of the car waving a red flag.
