It has rightly been said that, in terms of aesthetics, Cadillac was in 1941 what Cord was in 1937, what Duesenberg was in 1929, and what LaSalle was in 1927. Overall, the entire 1941 Cadillac model lineup possessed a truly wonderful style and grace, which was coupled with the marque’s characteristically advanced engineering that was seldom seen in competing products.
Visually, the 1941 Cadillac was a masterpiece of subtle, flowing curves that began with a bold and distinctive grille design. The flat, chromed grille and domed hood were dominant, and two new styling concepts were available: the horizontal valance that enclosed the space between the bodywork and the bumpers and the front fender wind-split creases that began at the headlamps and extended horizontally back along each rear flank of the body. The sole available engine, Cadillac’s refined 346-cubic inch V-8, delivered remarkably silent and smooth operation, 150 horsepower, and plenty of torque. Ride and handling characteristics remain quite good, even by today’s standards, making Cadillacs of the immediate pre-war era excellent choices for collectors and enthusiasts who enjoy driving.
This 41 Cadillac shows very well. The interior, carpet and trunk benefited from a recent professional restoration. The chrome is excellent as is the paint, with very few blemishes. This Cadillac has a new wiring harness and has undergone a complete service and tune up which includes new spark plugs, wires, condenser, points, valves and rings. The gas tank has been cleaned and coated, with all new fuel lines. The dash is beautiful as are all the working gauges.
A full CCCA classic, this 41 Cadillac is ready for any Caravan or show. This unique Cadillac is a one off coupe with opera windows in the rear and a front leather top section that can be removed to enjoy the sunshine while still protecting the rear seat passengers. This exquisitely restored car has only covered 109 miles since its frame off restoration.

This exquisitely restored car has only covered 109 miles since its frame off restoration. This car started life as a 60 Special 4 door Fleetwood. The owner had a vision of a coupe with a removable hardtop. This was created with no expense spared. After close inspection it appears to have come that way from the factory. It is one of a kind and will draw a crowd wherever shown or toured.
