Cadillac introduced its initial lineup of 16-cylinder cars in January 1930, which remained the company’s flagship offering until 1940. The second generation of this model was unveiled in late 1937, featuring refreshed front-end styling and a redesigned flathead engine, replacing the first generation’s overhead-valve powerplant.
With a channel-beam X-frame chassis and a 141″ wheelbase, the Series 90 V16 stood out. In 1938, it offered a choice of 12 distinct Fleetwood body styles, including both open and closed configurations.
This particular 1938 Cadillac Series 90 is a rare gem, as it is one of only 315 V16 models produced for that model year. What sets it apart is the exquisite Fleetwood style number 9067 convertible coupe coachwork, making it one of merely ten vehicles built with this specific design.
