Description for Cadillac Other 1941

1941 Cadillac Series 61 Coupe Hard to find body style Western car from new Factory black example Up for bids is this fantastic Cadillac. a 1941 Series 61 Fastback Coupe.   Relatively rare. the Model 6127 Coupes were the only ones to feature fastback styling for that year.   1941 Cadillacs are acknowledged as Full Classics by the CCCA and it's easy to see why.   This car began life in California. later joining a large collection in Nevada before coming to Oregon.   It's an older frame off restoration that still shows very well. it remains to this day a reliable stately classic that's an excellent choice for comfortable. reliable touring. The car was taken off the frame for a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration.   A factory black car. the paint quality is excellent but does show a few age related flaws if you go looking for them.   Overall the car stands tall but is not a 100 point example.   The body is arrow straight (obviously important for a black car) and shows no rust issues or problems. The trimwork on this car is in excellent condition.   Both bumpers were rechromed and look fantastic.   Tires are bias ply wide whites. they're older tires but still show good tread and no sidewall checking.   All 4 wheels. hubcaps and trim rings are in great shape. The grill still has its original finish. it gives you an idea of how good the car was to start with.   Hood side vents show the typical light pitting they all seem to have.   Hood ornament is in excellent conditon. Both tail light assemblies show good chrome and good lenses.   The car's biggest flaw is a small paint crack on the top of the passenger side quarter panel. visible in the 3rd photo below.   Some of the fender beading on the rear quarters could be tighter.   Those two flaws are about the only things I can find to pick on. I believe that the car's overall presence more than makes up for them.   The sedanette body style has a look all its own. especially in black. The reflections in the 4th photo show just how straight this body is. The trunk handle assembly will need a bit of fiddling with the latch. All of the glass was replaced and they're all absolutely crystal clear with no flaws.   All window seals were replaced at that time as well.   The stainless window surrounds are in great shape throughout. Complete interior restoration along with a plastic seat cover for the front. easily removable if not wanted. Rear seat shows hardly any use.   Doors close precisely. windows wind smoothly.   Expert wooodgraining job on the dash and garnish moldings.   The car has all new windlacing and weatherstripping. A new wiring harness was installed from front to rear.   Lights. horn. signals. etc are all working.   All gauges work correctly except for the temp gauge. an auxillary unit has been mounted below the dash and shows stable readings.   Speedometer and odometer work correctly. the radio works but the volume doesn't seem to adjust from its medium setting.   The clock works but runs a little fast.     The heater and fan work well.   Headliner is excellent from back to front. The 346 V-8 runs beautifully and produces ample power.   Starts readily and has a near silent idle.   The motor is more than adequate for freeway driving. it cruises at 70 with power to spare.   Around town the car has lots of low end torque. it never seems taxed or stressed. it drives with authority.   Another impressive mechanical aspect of this Cadillac is the way it shifts.   This has to be the smoothest column shift car I've ever driven. it's just perfect.   The car has a nice tight feel driving down the road. it brakes well and tracks straight.   The driving experience in this car is first rate. The build quality of these Cadillacs have earned them a distinction all their own.   The motto of Cadillac as "The Standard of the World" bears witness to the quality of these milestone automobiles.   Click here for a gallery of all of the enlarged images.
