High bid of $65,000 at 2008 Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook. (did not sell)
For 1938, Cadillac moved the headlamps into the front fenders for the up-market Series 65 and Fleetwood Series 75 models. The bodies became more curvaceous that the prior models, particularly from the rear. Optional dual sidemounts covers were hinged to the fenders. Quarter windows were sliding rather than hinged construction. Technical innovations for 1938 included column shift, a transverse muffler just behind the fuel tank, new wheels, a hypoid rear axle, horns hidden behind the grille, and a Synchro-Flex flywheel.

The Series 75 was given an increase in compression which lifted horsepower to 140.

This particular example wears an older restoration and painted in a soft yellow color. There are wide whitewall tires, a tan cloth top and refinished chrome accents. The interior upholstery is dark brown leather, and the dashboard is dark chocolate brown.

In 2008 this 1938 Cadillac Series 75 Convertible Coupe was brought to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $75,000-$100,000. A high bid of $65,000 failed to satisfy the reserve and the car was left unsold.
