Cadillac History

1930 Cadillac Series 353 Eight

Share on:

The 353 Series Cadillacs were designed by General Motors new design chief Harley Earl, who went on to become a legendary American designer. Thanks to the new designs, Cadillac sales figures for 1929 were nearly double those of 1928.

Interestingly, this car was sold new in California by Mr. Earl's former employer, Cadillac-LaSalle dealer Don Lee. It was restored in the mid-1970's and re-restored in 2010.

All Cadillacs for 1930 were built on a 140-inch wheelbase chassis. They were powered by the famous Cadillac V-8 overhead valve motor that developed '90 plus' horsepower.

Combining that powerful motor with this sporty convertible coupe body (much lighter than a sedan or limousine) meant that the car had a rather responsive and sporty persona. Driving the Series 353 was made easier thanks to another Cadillac innovation - the industry's first synchromesh transmission.
