1927 Cadillac 314A news, pictures, and information
This Series 314 Cadillac is one of 50,619 vehicles produced in 1926 and 1927. This 4,615-pound vehicle rides on a 138-inch wheelbase and is powered by a side-valve, 314.5-cubic-inch (5.15 liter) V8 engine developing 80 horsepower, coupled to a 3-speed manual transmission.
Buyers were also choosing Cadillac to partake of the unprecedented color and trim selections offered by the marque. When General Motors introduced fast-drying Dupont 'Duco' lacquer finishes in 1924, it opened the door to the automotive 'color revolution.' By 1927, Cadillac and its new LaSalle companion car were advertising the availability of 500 interior/exterior combinations.
This 1927 Cadillac is a 138-inch wheelbase model and carries a 7-passenger sedan body built by Fisher. It weighs about 6,000 lbs. The car appeared in the 1956 movie, 'The Eddy Duchin Story,' starring Tyrone Power and Kim Novak.
Over the past eight decades, the Cadillac has had but three owners. It was delivered new to a New York customer, who would carefully maintain it for three decades. The second owner obtained it in the late 1950s, bringing it to Michigan. A painstaking restoration was begun in the late 1980s. In 2007, third owner Mr. Rand acquired the Cadillac and has since refreshed the restoration, while carefully preserving the stately sedan's many authentic details.
