Opera Coupe
Coachwork: Fisher
Chassis Num: 8270871
Sold for $44,000 at 2006 RM Sothebys.
High bid of $42,500 at 2008 RM Sothebys. (did not sell)
This 1938 Cadillac Model 38-6127 Opera Coupe with chassis number 8270871 is powered by a 346 cubic-inch L-head V8 engine producing 135 horsepower. It has a three-speed selective synchromesh manual transmission, column shift, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. It is believed to be one of only three known to exist with dual sidemount spares, a feature that had been reserved for the V16 models. Also rare are the factory installed running boards.
It was estimated to fetch between $50,000 - $70,000 at the 2006 RM Auctions at Meadow Brook. The lot was Sold at a price just under that estimation, at $44,000.

In 2008 it returned to the RM Auction at Meadow Brook where it had an estimated value of $65,000 - $80,000. The odometer had 56,000 miles on it; there was evidence of road use, though the car remained in presentable condition. Bidding reached $42,500 but was not enough to satisfy the reserve; the lot was left unsold.
