Formal, stately and slightly ominous. These are just some of the adjectives that come to mind when one sees a black 1941 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine arrive at the curb. At MotoeXotica Classic Cars, we are proud to offer such a vehicle and we wouldn’t blame you if you heard “The Godfather” theme when you see it. The 1941 Fleetwood Series 75 Touring Imperial was a hand-crafted limousine built in the Cadillac tradition. The Series 75 was the marque’s flagship V8. In 1941 the short wheelbase Series 70 was replaced by the Series 62 and the long wheelbase Series 75 was integrated into the Fleetwood family. This was a most brilliant motor car for its day, and it, with others like it built the “Standard of the World” reputation in years to come for the Cadillac brand. This magnificent sedan is a highly sought collectible today as only 757 Touring Imperials (41-7533) were built. The Fleetwood Series 75 was the “Cadillac of Cadillacs.”
Finished in black, this car’s paint and trim are in overall good order, but there are some blemishes at various points and the paint shows some patina, especially around the rear window and some of the trim. The right front window will not roll down but all of the windows are clear and crack-free, while the lights are haze-free and look great. This limo rolls on Denman wide whitewalls mounted on 16-inch wheels with factory wheel covers. All of its body panels are solid and straight, including the standard running boards. The cargo area is in good order and includes a full-sized spare tire, boxes of parts and vehicle documentation. The engine bay is tidy and the bumpers look great.
Powered by Cadillac’s 346 CID 7.0 litre “L-Head” 8 cylinder engine. It has a cast iron block and head, three main bearings, and hydraulic lifters. A Stromberg AAV-26, Carter WDO506s carburetor. This engine produces 150 bhp @ 3,400 rpm. It has a selective synchro manual 3-speed column shift transmission. The rear is fitted with a Hotchkiss semi-floating axle with hypoid gears. The Fleetwood Series 75 was the “Cadillac of Cadillacs.”. Power hydraulic braking at all four wheels was standard. $3,295 went a long way in 1941, that was the base price of the Series 75 Touring Imperial. Only 757 of these were built. Thirty years ago, the former owner rebuilt the original engine himself, using new pistons, camshaft and water pump. The fuel pump and radiator core were rebuilt in 1987, too. In 2003, the engine-to-dashboard wiring was replaced.
Inside, the chauffeur’s section is in very good overall condition with its black leather bench seat. The previous owner reportedly had the front seat redone by someone who formerly worked at the Cadillac factory in Detroit, Michigan that built these cars. The carpet is in good order, as is the black headliner, front and rear. The car’s black metal instrument panel looks fabulous, while the original, two-spoke steering wheel is present and in good condition. The speedometer, fuel and temperature gauges are inoperable, however. The mirror glass and shift lever are in good order and there’s a factory AM radio and optional under the seat heater and defroster for the chauffeur to use. On the other side of the functioning power divider glass, the original tan mohair rear upholstery looks great, including on the fold down jump seats for quick jaunts.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 78,033 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
