Imperial Sedan
Coachwork: Fleetwood
Engine Num: 5000024
Sold for $550,000 at 2015 RM Sothebys.
The 'Great Cylinder Race' was started in 1930 with Cadillac's introduction of their V16 followed by Marmon with their V16 in 1931. Cadillac added a V12 in 1931; by 1932 builders such as Lincoln, Packard, Pierce Arrow, Auburn and Franklin had added V12 engines.

The Cadillac V16 was a beautiful 45-degree OHV design, with unique hydraulic lash adjusters, with 452 cubic-inches produced 185 horsepower. 1933 models had a 149-inch wheelbase, making them one of the longest cars of the era. The 45-degree V16 continued in production through 1937.

A new flathead 135-degree V16 was produced 1938-1940 but many consider this later engine to be inferior, and certainly not as beautiful as the earlier engine. Only 126 1933 V16s were built.

This Fleetwood Imperial Sedan was originally ordered by George Washing Shroyer, the mayor of Dayton, Ohio, and equipped with so many custom features that the build sheet required two pages. When it was found the car was in remarkably good condition, with no rust anywhere and no rotted wood; the body and doors were in good alignment. The odometer showed 85,000 miles and based on condition it was concluded this was the original mileage.

Even though the car was in overall good condition a ground-up, body-off, bolt-by-bolt restoration was done to bring it up to its current mint condition.
