Description

Of course, it is no surprise that Cadillac was known as the best car in the world in the ’20s. Looking at this specimen, it is entirely justified. The quality drips from it. This was the absolute pinnacle of automobiles in 1928. The 341A was available in no less than 50 different versions and 500 different colors, unprecedented for that time. Until the mid-1920s the American market actually agreed that the quality of Cadillac ’s was very good, that the cars ’s drove well and that they were solidly built. There was really only ééone thing missing: style. That was to change at the end of the 1920s with the introduction of the 341. That one was, without exaggeration, a revelation in the hitherto very conservative styling of Cadillac's offerings. Responsible for that enormous variation in Cadillac's design language was Harry J. Earl. What a visionary. This example is still in beautiful condition. The car was taken apart to the last screw several years ago and rebuilt with great care and attention to detail. The car is painted in this beautiful color combination that consists of dark green fenders and green paint. The sheet metal has beautiful fits throughout and the paint is still in very good condition. The Phaeton Sport is equipped with a double window so that rear passengers can have extra privacy. Because it is a touring car it must of course be possible to drive it in all weather conditions, the mounted convertible top is therefore of heavy quality and protects the occupants from the elements very well. Of course, the car stands on wire wheels with good tires in the correct sizes and white walls. The chrome on the lights, around the windows and on the grille is everywhere neatly maintained and is also in very good condition. The chassis was completely repainted at the time and is in top condition. The interior was completely reupholstered with supple green leather at the time and still looks to be in excellent condition. The controls and instruments are also in very good condition and function as they should. The rear seat also looks good and the running boards are also well covered and in good condition. The counter shows only 4350 miles, from the quality of the car you would almost believe that this is the original mileage. It is easy to see that this was a luxury car of the period.

All parts of the car are beautifully refined and especially aimed at ensuring that the, undoubtedly wealthy passengers, can move about in comfort. Furthermore, a striking detail is the lockable trunk at the rear of the car. If the trunk space is not enough, there is also a luggage rack on which you can secure even more luggage. Also, the chrome around the windshield is in beautiful condition. It is indicative of the way in which this car was always handled. Power is of course provided by a V8 engine. The engine runs great, has already been completely overhauled and delivers 90 hp, an unprecedented amount of power for that time. The engine is mated to a three-speed manual transmission and has an unprecedented civilized ride. This car more than lives up to Cadillac's reputation, as the handling is unprecedented for a pre-war car. Wouldn't it have been nice if they could have continued that line from the 1970s? The car has leaf springs all around and is surprisingly comfortable. In short, a beautifully restored and refurbished, extremely rare 1928 Cadillac 341A. In superb condition
