1941 Cadillac Convertible Sedan
1941 Cadillac Convertible Sedan In my opinion, the ’41 Cadillac is the ultimate tour car. It has plenty of power with its 346 cid L-head V-8 mated to a smooth 3 speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, and rear semi-elliptic leaf springs. In addition, it is equipped with hydraulic drum brakes. The 126 inch wheelbase makes the ride smooth and firm. This ’41 has had a charmed life. It was part of the Lindburg family collection for the last 55 years. The Lindburg family was the Cadillac Distributor for the Midwest and operated three Cadillac Agencies in St. Louis, Missouri for decades. Now out of long time storage, the Cadillac is ready again hit the road. The maroon paint is excellent as well as the tan leather interior. All chrome including the pot metal side vents and grille was excellent.The canvas top shows wear, however, very useable. The Cadillac is sitting on brand new period radial whitewall tires. Come drive it—you will want it in your collection.
