1913 Cadillac Model 30 Touring

7k Original Miles, Older Partial Restoration, Beautiful

$79,800

Harry's Thoughts

This is a beautifully restored example of one of the most important Automotive icons. The 1912 Cadillac Model 30 was the first year of the Self Starter and this, being the 1913, benefits from being more refined and powerful.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a beautifully restored-as-needed 1913 Cadillac Model 30 Touring that is believed to have just over 7,000 original miles from new.  It still retains its original door panels and much of it is still original, but the paint, seating, top and undercarriage have all been well restored.  While it drives very well and is very powerful, its re-wiring should be completed.  Otherwise, this is a wonderful driving nickel era Cadillac that can be used for touring or show.

It is said that this Cadillac was bought new by a gentleman from Missouri for his mother.  It was used very little and then was stored away.  Its present Oklahoma City owner acquired her about five years ago and its being sold to help pay amassing medical bills.

The soft gray exterior is complimented by black fenders and burgundy coachstripes.  The wooden artillery wheels are also gray with the burgundy accents.  The paint is in very nice condition for showing or tours.  It does have many touched up areas in the high use areas, but it is overall just gorgeous.  The black canvas convertible top is as-new and has a lovely tan inner liner.  There are no side curtains with this example.  The nickel plating is in very nice condition and mostly completed during its restoration.

The interior is newer black leather with the exception of the original black leather door panels that look great and help support the low miles and originality of this Cadillac.  The instruments are original and have not been restored but look nice.  The rear compartment features black carpeting, too.

The engine compartment is a work of art!  We love the ample use of copper, brass and other metals.  It is fairly well detailed as you can see in the photos and videos.  The engine fires right up with the Self Starter and sounds fantastic.  It runs with excellent power and is incredibly easy to shift through the gears.  The new-for-1913 366 CID L-head straight four-cylinder engine really operates well.  This Cadillac is easily capable of 45 mph touring.

The Cadillac featured the Gray & Davis headlights with the More-Lite lenses.  1913 was the year Cadillac started its “Standard of the World” promotions, and this is certainly an example of their claim.

Interesting Fact: The Cadillac Model 30 is one of the oldest Cadillac’s to date, being produced in 1909 and sold through 1911. There were no other vehicles offered by the company at that time, and the design itself was extremely reminiscent of a carriage meant to be pulled by a horse.   A 3.7-liter four-cylinder engine was used in the Model 30 and was subsequently used in additional Cadillac models. In the following years, a Model 1912, 1913, and 1914 were released in accordance with the year. These models were similar in design to the Model 30, but used larger engines over time. The Model 30 was no powerhouse, as few cars were in the early 20th century, but it was a milestone for Cadillac when it came to successfully be entering the automobile market. The Model 30 is monumental for offering a closed body in 1910, which was the first time an automaker offered this type. The pure history of this car makes it a classic that many historians want to add to their garages!
