This 1904 Cadillac Model B Rear-Entrance Tonneau was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $20,000 - $30,000 and offered without reserve. Bidding quickly surpassed the estimates with the final bid settling at $72,600. It has a wheelbase that measures 76-inches and its horizontal single-cylinder engine displaces 98.2 cubic-inches and produces 8.25 horsepower. There is a two-speed planetary transmission and dual differential-mounted brakes. The suspension is a solid front axle with transverse leaf springs and a live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and single chain drive.
This car has a very old restoration, completed around the late 1960s, and its exterior is painted maroon paint with black accent moldings. There are Solar 41A headlamps and a brass taillight, plus a light for the rear step. The engine is operable but requires some servicing.

The Model B was available in a number of bodystyles, including a delivery car that met the increasing popularity of horseless carriages among progressive merchants.
While Cadillac was under Henry Leland's leadership, every aspect of design and development was a symbol of quality, performance, and practicality. LeLand insisted on precision manufacturing of interchangeable parts. Cadillac offered parts off the shelf that could be used interchangeably to replace worn or broken pieces without fitting, adaptation, or grinding.
This Cadillac Model B Rear Entrance Tonneau is equipped with a single headlamp, kerosene sidelights, and a single multi-purpose taillight that could be removed to illuminate nighttime repairs. There are flared mudguards, a detachable rear entrance tonneau, wicker pannier baskets for storage, a surrey-style top, and folding windshield.
In 2009, this Model B was offered for sale at the Houston Classic Auction presented by Worldwide Auctioneers and held in Seabrook, Texas. The lot was estimates to sell for $75,000 - $100,000 and was offered without reserve. The lot was sold for $66,000 not including buyer's premium.
