As the 1930s soldiered on, sales for the grand Cadillac slowed. Nearly all of the V16s built in 1940 received semi-custom coachwork, with the exception of a handful of one-off coachbuilt models such as this five-passenger Sport Coupe bodied by Derham of Rosemont. Its first owner was H.G. Haskell of Wilmington, Delaware, vice-president of the DuPont Company. Mr. Haskell paid $11,000 for the car and is believed to have retained the car until his passing in 1951.

The design of five-passenger sport coupe was undoubtedly influenced by the V-16 aerodynamic coupes of the mid-1930s. It has the classic Derham padded top which was a rarity on a fastback design. Unusual features include exotic molded cushions, ventilator panes in the rear-side windows, and an additional luggage rack.

The next recorded owner was Herbert Becker of Long Island, New York, who kept the car in his garage. Years later, another Long Islander, David Ficken, discovered the car after a lengthy search. Soon after discovering the car, he sold it to John S. Linhardt of Queens, New York. The car was later purchased by J.B. Nethercutt in 1970 and immediately embarked on a restoration. Upon completion, the car was finished in ruby red with a tan padded top. Inside there is a flame stich pattern, period-correct French mohair upholstery that was reportedly sourced through Phil Hill.

The car has appeared in numerous books and magazines.

In 2010, the Derham Coupe was sold to a southern collector who added it to his extensive collection of American classics.
