1933 Cadillac 452C V16 Vehicle Profile

Fleetwood All-Weather Phaeton
Coachwork: Fleetwood
By 1933, the boxy look of the Twenties began to give way to the streamlined look of the Thirties. Featured were fully skirted, flowing fenders and a graceful 'wind split' veed grille, which boasted a painted shell that blended in smoothly with the bodywork.

In addition to a longer 149-inch wheelbase, the V-16's received a unique grille, a larger - and more elegant - 'Goddess' hood ornament, and massive 'four-bar' bumpers. Also, the three rectangular ventilated doors seen on the sides of the hood of the V-8's and V-12's yielded to three functional 'spears' on the V-16, a theme repeated on the lower front fenders.

Prices ranged from $5,540 for an Imperial Cabriolet to $8,000 for the All-Weather Phaeton. These prices exceeded Packard's priciest V-12's, and had to be staggering in the depths of the Depression, when a Chevy started at $445.

For 1933, Cadillac announced that V-16 production would be limited to 400 cars. These were to be serially numbered - the number and the owner's name to be displayed on a plate inside the car. Nearly seven body styles were suggested. Half this number of styles were actually built, but half of the total production of 126 cars were in the most conservative five- or seven-passenger sedan styles. Only three examples were ever built in this Convertible Phaeton bodystyles.
