- Superb brass era Cadillac
- Wonderfully restored example
This wonderfully presented 1910 Cadillac Model 30 is fitted with a four-cylinder, 30hp engine and presents in very good order throughout. The paintwork is very good showing a light patina and the superb brown leather upholstery is heavily patinated. Combined with the stylish coachwork this example really is the epitome of excellence and makes for a very comfortable driving experience.
During its life this Cadillac has been treated to various restoration work and has been fitted with an open two seat body, believed to have been fitted circa 100 years ago and widely recognised to be the more desirable of body styles. It comfortably seats two adult passengers, with the possibility of three, and since it is so light the car exhibits very strong performance. Many bills and invoices are present in the history file including bills for a recent overhaul of the gears, various engine work and a new crown wheel and pinion, the majority of work completed circa 50 miles ago, the Veteran Car Club framed certificate of date and two old stye buff logbooks are also present. The vendor reports that this Model 30 runs and drives very well indeed and is a pleasure to drive. It is started and exercised regularly and is ready for imminent use. Very few veteran cars are as handsome as this and if you are looking for a brass era automobile and have extraordinarily fine taste, this opportunity should not be overlooked!
