1930 Cadillac Series 452A V16 Roadster

This Cadillac V-16 was ordered on May 14th of 1930 by Burke Cadillac Company of Indianapolis and built as Style 4375S, a seven-passenger sedan. The early history is not known and currently wears a roadster body constructed by Dave Long of Bozeman, Montana, for Al Giddings. The work was completed in 2015, and it promptly took an AACA National First, medallion W31260, and subsequently received Senior status.

This Roadster is finished in black and red paint and the black body moldings striped in red. The interior is done in black leather. There is a golf bag door on the right side, a 148-inch wheelbase platform, dual side-mount spares with steel covers, a rack-mounted trunk, and a rumble seat. There are spotlights on both sides of the windshield, and Pilot Ray driving lights.
