Sold for $25,000 at 2013 RM Auctions - St John's.
For 1940, Cadillac offered six series with over 40 body styles divided between them. The Series 72, which rested on a 138-inch wheelbase (2nd largest in the line-up) was available in six body-styles plus an additional two 9-passenger business body styles. The appearance of the Series 72 was similar to that of the upscale Series 75, though the Series 72 was three inches shorter. External changes were limited to high-mounted taillights. A mechanical change was the recirculating ball steering. Powering the Series 72 was an overhead valve V8 engine displacing 346 cubic-inches and offering 140 horsepower. They had a three-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

The Series 72 was a one-year-only option.

This 1940 Cadillac Series 72 is a large, seven-passenger Formal Sedan with coachwork by Fleetwood. It is one of a believed 18 produced, and it one of two known examples, of which this is the only running and driving survivor. The car's original owner was See's Candy family in California. The car still wears its original Cavern Green lacquer, its 'Vogue pattern' tan broadcloth interior, and a padded leather roof covering. The bumpers have been re-plated and the rest of the chrome appears to be in original and excellent condition.

The odometer shows 68,000 miles with the majority of those acquired during its original owners. The car enjoyed 40 years of chauffeured care with those owners.
