Description for Cadillac Fleetwood 1939

The 1939 Cadillac Sixty Special Cadillac’s with Fleetwood body was introduced in October 1938. This particular car was shipped from Detroit to Boston on February 28. 1939 with a Trinidad Gray exterior (photos of original car included with car) and a Special Order red leather (Trim Code SO6108) interior instead of Gray cloth. Only five 5. 13 Sixty Specials were build in 1939 in only one model. a four door sedan. This car qualifies as a true classic by the CCCA (Classic Car Club of America). A designation reserved for select motor cars built before 1948 that have great impact or significance on the heritage of the automobile. In 1996 it was repainted with what I would label a butternut cream. This car has been fully restored at least once in its life and is currently a nicely maintained driver. It is a matching numbers car. It is not ready for the show circuit. but It runs great and is fully capable and dependable for touring. club outings and general fun. With a smooth as silk 346 CI engine it cruises the interstates or local streets with equal ease. I have full mechanical records prior to approximately 2008. Based on the mileage noted on receipts I believe the odometer to be 137. 00. but there is no proof or assurance of that. It was owned and garaged by the same owner since 1995 (20 Years) and passed New York State Motor Vehicle Inspection in July. 2015. Some points on the car’s condition. in no particular order are as follows: Mechanical - Motor was completely rebuilt in 2002 and runs great. An alternator has replaced the generator but remains a 6 volt system. Heater/Defroster work well. Ignition switch has been hidden under the dash for security. Dash gauges all work except speedometer (odometer is fine). Hood springs are very weak. Fog Lights-OEM operating fog lights with Cadillac logo embossed. Transmission was just rebuilt. Front end is tight. Ignition key fits both front doors. Has spare tire. but no jack. Trim and Bright Work – Stainless steel window trim is flawless. Glass retaining molding shows some pitting. A little rust on vent window frames. Hood Godess is flawless. Wood grain appears to be original and is excellent with a couple of chips near instruments. Bumpers and taillights look to be recently re-chromed. Grills and other cast parts show some pitting. Floor pans and frame are solid and show nothing more than a patina of rust. with no perforation anywhere. Glass is all clear and appears to be original–a little discoloration on edge of right rear window. Paint has some chipping. scratches and a few spider webs. Interior Headliner is like new. Carpet is new and trunk is relined with rubber mat and carpet. Door panel fabric. left driver door has a 4- 6 inch tear (see photos). and right visor sags. Leather has a couple of quarter size tears. Clock doesn’t work. Please remember this is being offered as a driver and will not be at Pebble Beach in the near future. but it will draw praise and WOW's at the local supermarket. country club or church. It is an honest representation of the pre-war luxury era. Please don’t bid unless you are a serious and qualified buyer. Feel free to call me at 973-886-4000. I am committed to making room for another car I bought and this car must be sold at a very reasonable price.
