1938 Cadillac Other Opera Coupe
This is a rare car due to the dual side-mounted spares and factory installed running boards. This is one of only three remaining Series 60 Opera Coupes with these features. There were only 438 Opera Coupes built in 1938 by Cadillac.
This particular car has been driven sparingly. The odometer reading of 56,xxx is believed to be actual. Considering the overall condition of the car, his is very easy to believe. However, e do not have proof.
It underwent a cosmetic restoration approximately 20 years ago. It has held up very well and still does not display any signs of rust or repairs to the body. There are minimal flaws in the paint. The chrome and stainless are in very good condition. The glass is good. The wheels and tires look wonderful. The interior has been re-upholstered to a proper appearing material. It is very nice. The engine bay is pleasing to the eye.
This car is certainly show worthy. In fact, t was invited to participate in the prestigious Masterpiece in Milwaukee, I. It stood tall next to some wonderful cars of the classic era that were valued at many times my price for this car. It has won awards at local shows and typically stands as the best GM vehicle.
The 348 flathead V8 starts with ease and runs smooth. The transmission shifts properly. There are no issues with either. The driving experience is wonderful thanks to recent maintenance of the ignition, uspension, teering and brakes. I have driven it a fair bit on two lane roads and it handles very nicely.
