1930 Cadillac Series 452A V16 Roadster Vehicle Profile

1930 Cadillac Series 452A V16
Roadster
Coachwork: Fleetwood
Designer: Harley Earl
This 452A Roadster has all matching component numbers including steering box, front axle, bell housing and generator according to the build sheet when it left the factory in 1930. Previous owners include Ronald Benach and Otis Chandler. Fran Roxas of Vintage Motor Group completed a full restoration.

The Cadillac V-16 was the industry's first production car to offer a 16-cylinder engine. Cadillac, focused on overtaking Packard's luxury car leadership, began development of the V-16 in absolute secrecy. It immediately stunned the luxury car competition and set a new standard for power, performance, and luxury at its January New York Auto Salon launch, becoming Cadillac's top-of-the-line vehicle until production ceased in 19400.

The V-16's 452 cubic-inch engine produced 165 horsepower and 320 ft-lbs of torque, with overhead valves and the forerunner of modern hydraulic valve lifters. Prices ranged from $5,350 for a two-passenger roadster to $8,750 for a town cabriolet. With a top speed of 90 mph and cruise of 70 mph, the typical example returned approximately 8 miles-per-gallon. Well over 1,000 sold by early April, most of the V-16s built over the 11 years were 1930 models. The Great Depression dwindled potential buyers and Cadillac later estimated they lost money on every V-16.
