Stylish 1931 Cadillac 370A V12 Is A Unicorn

It’s quite possible you’ll never run into another one of these for sale.

In its heyday, Cadillac as a brand was quite enviable, being a vehicle only the stylish elite would drive. At the close of the Roaring Twenties and a surging US economy, this 1931 Cadillac 370A V12 represented some of the opulence of that period. Even better, after a thorough restoration, this Caddie is ready to show off its restored glory.

Showcasing the excellent body panels is a glistening brown paint job, which was part of the restoration process. It also covers the rear trunk, which quite clearly demonstrates where that portion of cars got its name. Fresh chrome on all the right places like the grille, headlight bezels, bumpers, running board sills, radiator cap, and other trim pieces add a nice touch. The light tan cloth top is obviously new, as are the matching cloth spare wheel covers. Wide whitewall tires wrapped around wire spoke wheels complete the factory look for the exterior.

On the inside, supple brown leather and fresh carpeting keep everything feeling luxurious. All the wood you see is original, something that’s almost unbelievable considering how well-preserved it is. The V12 engine, 3-speed manual transmission, and everything else mechanical apparently runs perfectly, so the car literally is turn-key. This was a Cadillac show car and after a Deangelis collection vehicle, which might help explain to a degree why this one looks so good. A GM heritage build sheet is included.

A thing of elegance, the 1931 Cadillac 370A V12 contained the midsize engine offering from Cadillac for that year, believe it or not. It was offered as a coupe, four-door limousine, four-door sedan, two-door Tourer, and 2-door roadster. This particular roadster has been verified to be one of only 10 from this model year surviving today, according to the Classic Car Club of America, which is generously offering this vehicle to a lucky future owner. Add something exceptionally rare and beautiful to your collection by getting this classic Cadillac.
