175 HP, 452 cid, Overhead Valve V-16 Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Engine Number: 702089; Body Style 4476 Among Cadillac fans, one of the most mysterious and often misidentified models are those referred to as “Madame X” which were produced by Fleetwood for the exclusive use on the V-16 chassis. Up to the start of the 1930's, most windshields were rather flat vertical panes of glass, considered important for structural support. For the Madame X models, the windshields would be racked back a varying degrees providing an image of speed. Working with the craftsmen and engineers at Fleetwood, a new slightly sloping windshield lines was created and for certain models, such as this beautiful coupe we are offering, they received a Vee'd windscreen which was also a departure from the regular design concepts. Finished in Burgundy with Vermillion Red highlights and fenders, the interior is done in burgundy leather that is inviting and luxurious. As could be expected, this car is loaded with all the extras of the day starting with the enclosed dual side-mount spare tires, each of which is topped with a Cadillac logo rear-view mirror. To the rear on the fold-down rack is a custom built trunk that blends with the design and era of the car. This is a rumble-seat coupe and to remind those passengers they were riding in the Cadillac, the seat is large and comfortable, with folding arm rests which makes the ride a little more pleasant. To communicate with the back seat passengers, the rear glass does roll down and for easy storage of a picnic basket or golf clubs an access door has been placed on the side of the car. Up front is an accessory grille-guard, dual chrome-plated horns, the beautiful goddess with flowing hair radiator mascot and a pair of very desirable Pilot Ray driving lights. This Fleetwood coupe also has full instrumentation of which all the gauges have been restored back to their original design and beauty.
