Description for Cadillac Other 1938

1938 Cadillac Series 65 V8 Sedan Following the hugely successful Cadillac Series 60. the new for 1937 Series 65 represented the company's second entry into the mid-priced vehicle market. and. being built on the C-body instead of the B-body. was somewhat physically larger when it appeared in 1937. It was offered in only one body style. a five passenger touring sedan. built by Fisher on the same 131. 0 in (3. 27 mm) wheelbase as used by the Cadillac Series 70. The car offered a longer heavier car than the Series 60 at a price below that of the Fleetwood bodied Series 70. Under the hood was the Monobloc V8. The only displacement that was available was the 346ci (5. 7 liter). which produced 135 bhp at 3400rpm. The car had Bendix dual-servo brakes. "Knee-Action" independent suspension in front and a Stromberg carburetor with an electric choke. In 1938 the Series 65 and the Series 75 shared a new front end style featuring a massive vertical cellular grille. three sets of horizontal bars on the hood sides. alligator hood. and headlights on the filler space between the fenders and the hood. Quarter windows were of sliding rather than hinged construction. The rear of the body had rounder corners and more smoothly blended lines. Trunks had more of an appearance of being an integral part of the body. Bodies were all steel except for wooden main sills. New chassis details included a column gear shift. horns just behind the grille. battery under the right hand side of the hood. transverse muffler just behind the fuel tank. wheels by a different manufacturer. "Synchro-Flex" flywheel. hypoid rear axle and the deletion of the oil filter. On offer is this fabulous Series 65 of the second and last year of manufacture. 1938. Restored approximately 15 years ago. the car has been used sparingly since. Meticulously maintained. the car is offered in excellent condition throughout with what is believed to be an original 92. 00 miles recorded on the odometer. The paint. in original brown is in excellent condition. practically free of only very minor scratches. with no scuffs or dings and shows great luster and shine. There is no evidence of paint repair or accident damage anywhere on the car. Brightwork is excellent. as is glass. wheels and good whitewall tires. The interior is also in excellent condition throughout. Seats. panel and carpet surfaces are all unmarked. The car drives as well as it looks. Fresh from a re-commissioning service. the flathead V8 engine is smooth and in perfect tune and the gearbox shifts perfectly. Brakes. suspension and steering are all excellent and the electrical systems work as they should. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a wonderfully and correctly restored example of Cadillac’s great and now quite rare Series 65. Smooth and near silent in operation. this very Cadillac of Cadillacs possesses all of the luxury and refinement associated with its more exalted predecessor yet offers superior roadability and enjoys well deserved classic status.
