1931 Cadillac BroughamFor many years, the Cadillac Motor Car Company devoted all of its energies to the perfection of a single product – the Cadillac V-8. Until 1927, Cadillac’s entire reputation as a master builder was based on this car. Even though other, larger engines were developed; the V-8 continued to be built as if it were the sole protector of their good name.
Ordered through the Hall Cadillac Company at Denver, Colorado, this Series 355A Fleetwood-bodied Roadster was completed on March 31, 1931. As invoiced, it had dual side mount spares with metal covers and mirrors, the Goddess radiator ornament and was furnished with a set of tire chains. Motor# 807020
Primarily owned by a private collection from 1989 Robert Pond purchased the vehicle from Richard Gold who acquired the vehicle in 1974, Mr. Pond paid $95,000 for the car in 1989, I Have letters and payment receipts that will come with sal, the car bears an older professional restoration, but remains extremely attractive in red with black moldings and fenders. Contours and paint are very good, the latter exhibiting a deep shine. The bright work is good, at some point the original Goddess mascot was replaced by the alternative Heron style. The top is tan canvas with black piping and matching boot, both good, but the boot shows some stains. A set of side curtains is included with the car. The seating is black leather and has some wear as seen in the photos,.
The engine bay is clean, but not detailed, and the undercarriage shows a bit of surface rust. The car rides on older Denman 7.00-18 wide whitewalls. Other equipment includes a hot water heater, wind wings, dual side mount spares and a trunk rack. Recognized as a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America, it is eligible for all club activities, including Grand Classics and Caravan tours. I Have included over 100 photos of the car, the car does run and I have driven it around the surface streets sparingly, The new owner if plans are to drive the car would need to have the brakes serviced and replace older lines, new tires, and a complete safety check, this car has been in a museum for many years.
