Description:

1937 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood

  • This auction is for TWO 1937 Cadillac limousines, plus a large amount of parts and an "extra" chassis & partial body for a third series 75 car.

  • My plan was to use the yellow car to complete the convertible and to supply the drivetrain and needed floor panels, but the closed car is buildable as well... so I sourced more parts for both. Unfortunately I will not get around to these projects...

  • Car #1 is a series 75 model 7529 convertible 5 passenger sedan with a divider window and dual sidemount spare tires.

  • This was a very limited production limousine that had amazing attention to detail, and shared a body and interior with the v-12 series 85 cars.

  • This particular car has great potential and will make a stunning vehicle, whether it has a vintage Cadillac V8 or a more modern powerplant... the possibilities are wide open for restorers or customizers alike!

  • MODEL 37-7529 CONVERTIBLE SEDAN

  • EXTERIOR:

  • - Car boasts an excellent front clip that is free of rust and has very solid metal.
  • - Grille is excellent with no cracks and decent original chrome.
  • - Hood ornament is in very good condition with no cracks.
  • - Hood is very nice and straight, and has a good center trim strip.
  • - Headlights are also in excellent condition with original lenses, reflectors and trim rings.
  • - Bumpers are straight and solid, and include a set of reproduction center sections.
  • - Six original 16" wheels are present, along with 4 original hubcaps.
  • - All front clip chrome is present, including all small horizontal moldings small hood strip terminus molding.
  • - "Fleetwood" cloisonne emblem from the passenger side cowl is present and in good condition.
  • - All windsheild trim is accounted for.
  • - All 4 original SOLID BRONZE door belt line moldings are in excellent condition.
  • - All other cast metal belt line moldings are present and in good condition.
  • - All exterior door handles, trunk handle and hood latch handles are present.
  • - Both original Cadillac V8 emblems from the grille and trunk are present.

  • - Side window frames are present for patterns.
  • - Doors are original and have had repairs started on the bottoms; structural wood has been partially replaced but will need further replacement.

  • - Front floor area is in good condition and appears to have newer wood panels. The battery tray and cover are correct.
  • - The rear floor is present, but is not attached and will need work. A metal section from a 7 passenger sedan has been placed on the floor but is not correct (could be used for patterns).
  • - The trunk floor is not in the car, and the rear wheel wells will need repairs. The exterior of the body looks fine, but most likely has had filler and patching done. There is another rear body section included (from a series 75 sedan) with the sale that has an intact trunk floor and rear wheel wells.
  • - The running boards currently on the car are from a '38 series 75 car, but the yellow car has an original set of boards. There is also a set of replacement running boards that were made from sheet metal, but one has had a piece cut out of it.
  • - The Convertible top frame is complete with the exception of the two front hinges that attach to the header bow, and the associated corner latches from the windshield frame are missing too. There does not appear to be any broken parts in the top assembly and it can be raised & lowered without much difficulty.
  • - Both removable upright sections between the door windows are present and in good shape to restore.
  • - Header bow is present for a pattern, as is all other convertible top wood sections.- The metal framed convertible top rear window is included and in good condition.
  • - Rear body section will require bracing & restoration, but there are many original parts present.

  • INTERIOR:

  • - Dash is complete and in very good condition.
  • - All gauges are present and are in very good condition; The celluloid faces are not warped or discolored.
  • - Front seat tracks are in very good condition.
  • - Front seat frame is in good condition, but is probably from a closed 75 series car.
  • - Front seat bottom cushions/frames are the split type and appear to be original to a convertible sedan.
  • - Divider window frame is intact and has the original wood panel where the window crank mechanism was attached. Original Crank mechanism is also present and good for restoration.

  • I HAVE A LARGE PHOTO INVENTORY OF THE CONVERTIBLE SEDAN PARTS, AS WELL AS MANY OTHER DETAILED PHOTOS THAT CAN BE SENT TO SERIOUSLY INTERESTED PARTIES.

  • I BELIEVE THAT THE ONLY 7529 SPECIFIC PARTS THAT ARE MISSING ARE THE 2 FRONT CORNER HEADER BOW LATCHES AND THE 2 ADJACENT HINGES THAT WOULD ATTACH THE HEADER TO THE CONVERTIBLE TOP FRAME. THE REAR CLOCK IS ALSO MISSING, BUT THIS IS NOT A UNIQUE PART.
