Sold for $257,600 at 2020 RM Sothebys : Scottsdale Arizona.
In 1939 Cadillac introduced its second-generation V-16 engine. Considerably more conventional in design, it features a simple side-valve configuration packed in a somewhat unusual 135-degree bank angle that is nearly horizontally opposed. It offers considerably more torque and horsepower while weighing 250 pounds less than its predecessor. It was also considerably less costly to build. The response from owners and enthusiasts was overwhelmingly positive. This was a much-needed boost for Cadillac, as they were struggling to recover from the Great Depression.

The new V-16 engine was mounted on the same 'shortened' chassis as the eight-cylinder Series 75, enabling the two series to share Fleetwood bodies. A total of twelve different bodies were offered from the 1938-1939 model years, allowing a wide variety of choices for the buyer. Styling is credited to a young designer by the name of Bill Mitchell.
