1931 Cadillac V-12 Convertible Coupe by Fleetwood at Fort Lauderdale

1931 is considered by many the apogee of Cadillacs of the Classic Era. The GM division introduced a new V-12 series to fill the gap between its V-8 and V-16 models. The Standard of the World was hardly an understatement among luxury marques with offerings of 134-, 140- and 143-inch wheelbases; bodies by Fisher and Fleetwood; three different engine configurations; and the more moderately priced LaSalle as part of its lineup. This was the beginning of a trend that eventually led to Cadillac’s domination of the luxury car field in terms of sales.

V-12’s, like the bigger V-16’s, were cataloged in a choice of 12 Fisher-bodied models as well as ten semi-custom Fleetwood-bodied models. A V-12 Roadster piloted by Cadillac test chief Willard Radar paced the Indianapolis 500 Race in the Memorial Day Classic. Cadillac produced a total of 5,733 V-12’s for the model year.
As a convertible coupe with rumbleseat, this Fleetwood-bodied CCCA Full Classic is one of the most desired among collectors.
