1929 Cadillac 341B

Cadillac was founded from the remnants of the Henry Ford Company in 1902. It derived its name from Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, who founded Detroit, Michigan. It became part of General Motors in 1909. They built a reputation for aristocratic elegance, beauty, and individuality of style. As the 1920s were coming to a close, Cadillac had further expanded its reputation as America's most technically innovative manufacturer. The list includes the electric starter, electric lamps, an all-steel roof (prior cars had fabric roof sections), safety glass, first dual-plane crankshaft V8, and the first synchromesh transmission.

The 1929 Cadillacs were visually similar to the 1928 models. The most noticeable visual difference were the placement of the parking lamps, which were moved from the cowl to the tops of the fenders. Mechanical changes were more significant, with the introduction of a new 'clashless' Synchro-Mesh Silent-Shift transmission, negating the need for double-clutching. New double-acting Delco shock absorbers were added to the suspension system. The new mechanical four-wheel brakes required considerably less pedal pressure than the prior setup. Shatterproof Security Plate glass became standard in all windows. The interior received fully adjustable seats as standard.

The 341 cubic-inch L-head three-main bearing V8 engine delivered 95 horsepower and a myriad of various body designs were offered mainly from Fleetwood and Fisher. GM's Fisher Body Division offered a total of twelve different body styles to choose from, all riding on the 140 inch wheelbase. The Fleetwood Body Division had more than 30 catalog choices. Customers could, however, specify a coachbuilder of their choice.

Just over 18,100 examples of the 1929 Cadillacs were built.
