Description/Condition:
The pictures accurately reflect the condition of the car in every respect. Its hard to beleive that an 81 year old car can be in this original, well maintained condition. The engine starts immediately and runs smoothly. Brakes, transmission, guages, lights all work as they should. Runs and drives very well. Does not overheat. I have just changed all fluids, belts and done a complete tune-up.
THIS IS A VERY RARE CAR.
It was custom built in 1937 for the Governor of Minnesota, Elmer Austin Benson. The chassis was built in Detroit by Cadillac. It was then shipped to Rollston, a famous coachbuilder in Manhatten where a custom coach was built to specifications. The build sheet comes with the car. It is documented as a "one-off" in the encyclopedia of Cadillacs titled "80 years of Cadillac and LaSalle" by Walter McCall. Page 210.
It is the only Cadillac limo ROLLSTON. It is called a town car cabriolet, featuring divider glass, jump seats, fold out mirriors in rear passenger compartment, and other amenities. Rollston was the last surviving coachbuilder in Manhatton, but finally folded due to depression. During the 20's and 30's, Rollston hand built custom coaches for celebrities, dignitaries, heads of state. Duesenburgs and Packards were most commonly used which makes this Cadillac even more unique.
