The 1931 Cadillac V12 Convertible Coupe up for auction

As we all know, Cadillac had a lot of problems and it is now doing its best to be a highlight in the automotive industry. To be sure that they are trying, the specialists have revealed models like the ATS and CTS which continue to receive very positive feedback and reviews, which can only be a good thing. It is not that important to have new and incredible cars now. For example, if the company developed models that were not a big hit, these will not have an influence on the new ones and vice versa; just think about the 1920 and 1930 models and compare. There are cars, like for example, the 1931 V12 Convertible Coupe which has been specially made, hand-beaten by Fleetwood. The specialists were just using its name to improve the impression on the brand and here we are talking about the Fleetwood Metal Body Company. This was a typical shop of the time and it did not do horse-drawn carriages-turned coaches as it has been developed to build bodies for automobiles in 1909. At the time the models was powered by a 1.5-liter engine which was considered to be light. It is a bit hard to say about a unit that is light when it has a 6-liter displacement divided among 12 cylinders. It was not that light, as for example, the V16 unit that is so common these days is a lot heavier. The weight found over the front axle made the difference with these small engines as apparently they were easy to steer and handle. The RM Auctions will take place on the 11th of October and the estimated price is somewhere between $175.000 and $225.000 which is a lot of money. Please take a look in the photo gallery below and the see the model we have been talking about.
