The Town Cabriolets were often known as 'town cars' and they often were very elegant with a sporty formal styling. The distinctive appearance of the 1934 Cadillac was continued for 1935 with only minor changes. They also continued the Series 370-D designation used for their 1934 counterparts.

Under the bonnet was a Cadillac 45-degree V-12 engine of 1931-1937 that displaced 368 cubic-inches and offered an impressive 150 horsepower for 1935. The overhead valve design had hydraulic silencers on the rocker bushings that contributed to the engine's smoothness and its whisper-quiet operation.

Fleetwood bodied several town car styles on the 146-inch wheelbase for the V-12 chassis in 1935, among them were two Town Cabriolet styles with closed rear quarters, and the Limousine Brougham, with large rear quarter windows. These elegant cars were among the most expensive production Cadillac V-12s with price tags approaching $7,000.

For 1935, Cadillac built 377 examples of their V-12 and only two are believed to have been the Fleetwood Style 5712 Town Cabriolet.

Records indicate the car was ordered through the New York Branch in late 1934. It is a well-equipped example with a rear compartment roof covered in Landau leather. There are dual-sidemounted spare tires, a$140 option that also included an intriguing swing-out dual-arm trunk rack at the rear. The metal covers for the spare tires are painted, which was an additional $40 option. The car rides on standard seventeen-inch wire wheels which are concealed beneath the accessory wheel discs. Inside, there are concealed folding jump seats, giving it a seven-passenger capacity.

This vehicle is a multiple show winner, shown at the 2005 Palm Beach Concours d'Elegance winner, 2003 Amelia Island 100 Years of Cadillac, and 2004 National Senior Grand CCCA First Place.

In 2009, this vehicle was offered for sale by Bonhams Auction at the Quail Lodge Resort and Golf Club in Carmel, CA. The car was estimated to sell for $150,000 - 175,000, but failed to find a bidder willing to satisfy the reserve. The car was left unsold.
