Limousine
Coachwork: Fleetwood
Cadillac was formed from the remnants of the Henry Ford Company when Henry Ford departed. Henry M. Leland of Leland & Faulconer Manufacturing Company persuaded the remaining partners to continue the automobile business using Leland's proven 1-cylinder engine. On August 22, 1902, the company was renamed the Cadillac Automobile Company.

The Cadillac's biggest selling point was precision manufacturing and reliability based on winning the British Dewar Trophy for the most important advancement of the year in the automobile industry. General Motors acquired the company in 1909. Cadillac's introduction of V-12 and V-16 powered cars in 1930 kicked off the 'cylinder wars' among the American luxury marques leading Packard to introduce their line of Twelves. The V-16 was Cadillac's top-of-the-line car until production ceased in 1940. Only 4,076 cars were built in the eleven years the model was offered, most built in the single year of 1930 before the Great Depression really took hold. The V-16s featured a longer 149-inch wheelbase, unique grille, a larger 'Goddess' hood ornament and massive 'four-bar' bumpers. The V-16 hood was four inches longer than the V-12 and five inches longer than the V-8. The instrument panel was similar, but the headlights were one inch larger in diameter and the dual rear lights were unique.

There were an incredible 70 body styles available on the V-16 chassis in 1930 at prices ranging from $5,800 to $7,150 - or more. Total model year production was 3,251.

This 1930 Cadillac V-16 452 is a seven-passenger limousine. It was designed and built by Fleetwood Body Co. of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, which was acquired by General Motors in 1930 and eventually relocated to Detroit. This car sold new in New York City and had 40,000 miles on the odometer when acquired by the current owner in 1996. It has the original paint and interior. A frame-off restoration was completed in 2003.
