Cadillac concentrated on a single line of V8 engines for 1941 and removed both the lower-priced LaSalle and the super-luxury V16. 1941 was also the final year in which an open four-door convertible sedan model was offered, now with vacuum-assisted top operation.
There were only about 400 convertible sedans produced by Cadillac in 1941, out of over 24,000 Series 62 models built. Priced at $1,965, they were among the top of the Series 62 price range.
This 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Deluxe 8 Convertible Sedan (style 41-62290) was originally painted code 51 black and currently painted in maroon. There is a tan leather upholstery with matching door panels. The odometer shows just 82 miles, likely since the restoration. It is well equipped with a clock and radio.
In 2009, this Deluxe 8 Convertible Sedan was offered for sale at the Houston Classic Auction in Seabrook, Texas, presented by Worldwide Auctioneers. The lot was estimated to sell for $85,000 - $100,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot had sold to a phone bidder for the sum of $75,000, plus buyer's premium.
