additional information

This award winning 1947 Cadillac Convertible is part of the prestigious Series 62 and was one of the most popular cars manufactured by the company post WW II. These convertible coupes accounted for two thirds of Cadillac’s total production for that year and truly represented class and comfort. At the present point in time the presented lot is, one of the only 7 (approx) surviving cars in India of its lineage. During the post war period Cadillac had a huge advantage over other companies, when automobile production was allowed to resume. While other factories were involved in production of war material during the battle period, Cadillac was responsible for engine production that were used in tanks, due to which they had a head start over other companies when automobile manufacturing finally resumed.

Provenance : Property from an esteemed Mumbai based collection.

This lot cannot be exported out of India (payment only in Indian Rupees).
