Harry's Thoughts

This is an elegant and sporty convertible sedan with its division window. Beautifully restored, this is how to buy them. It runs, drives and looks terrific. Its styling is the ultimate in Cadillac Art Deco design.

This is a beautifully restored 1933 Cadillac 370C V12 All-Weather Phaeton by Fisher that is ready to be shown competitively at concours events or enjoyed on tours.  This example is Body Number 34 of the 43 produced and only one of three known extant.  We love the classic Art Deco styling of the skirted fenders, which hit its peak for 1933.

The All-Weather Phaeton (Body Style 273) was nomenclature used by Cadillac to describe its convertible sedan with the division window.  But the chrome framed slanted windshield frame proves this to be a much sportier design than a typical convertible sedan.

The livery is stunning in Vincennes Red (Code 20527) complimented with Black fenders, Red spoke wheels and a tan coach stripe through the body and fender lines.  The paint is in excellent condition and is deeply polished for show.  There are two very small defects in the paint from prior repairs and a few small chips in the high use areas, such as the hood and the battery box cover.  The black Haartz cloth convertible top and top boot are in as-new condition and look spectacular.  The chrome is beautiful with only some very fine scratches from light use on the headlights and grill.

Accessories and features include the trunk rack and beautiful black leather trunk, covered dual side mounts with the correct dual mirrors, the one-year only Heron mascot, and the art deco chrome bumpers with the triple bar centers.  The panel fit is very nice throughout.

The formal and elegant black leather interior is nearly as-new and is soft and supple.  The quality of the workmanship is excellent.  The black carpeting is also in excellent condition.  All of the instruments and the clock work and the division window operates smoothly.  The top bows are beautifully chromed and correctly restored.  The interior is replete with wood accents throughout the front and rear passenger areas.  The wood is in beautifully restored condition.

The engine compartment is in excellent condition and is ready for show.  The 370 CID V12 engine is finished off and detailed correctly.  The V12 runs and drives beautifully with a 4.80:1 gear ratio and is smooth on its 140-inch wheelbase.  The chassis is also fully restored and in show condition.  It retains its original engine, Engine No. 4000801, as specified by the Cadillac factory build records.  The Cadillac flew through our 158-point inspection report that is attached to our listing page.

This Cadillac was shipped originally to Providence, Rhode Island on July 21, 1933.  It was owned for ten years and restored by Warren Green from Vero Beach, Florida.  Mr. Green sold it to the Sterling McCall Old Car Museum by 2008 and in January of 2010 it was sold to Sylvio Albert of Oswego, NY.  Mr. Albert is a longtime collector of classics and updated the restoration, as needed.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a fully restored Cadillac convertible sedan.  For more information and details, please call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.  The Cadillac is proudly displayed in our showroom in Phoenix.

All were furnished with custom bodies, and the car was built in relatively small numbers. A total of 10,903 were made in the seven model years that the automobile was built, with the majority having been constructed in its inaugural year. It was Cadillac's first, and is to date, Cadillac's only standard production V-12 powered car.
