96 HP, 353 cid, L-Head V-8 Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Engine No. 509146; Body No. 496 As the depression started to take hold, luxury carmakers were hit hard early on. Despite bigger displacements and more power, production for Cadillac dropped rather dramatically with just 11,005 V-8 equipped cars produced that model year. While Fleetwood coachwork was reserved for custom orders, Fisher was geared up to produce the highest quality production bodies in the industry. Referred to as body style 30168, this was a full-size convertible that could accommodate two passengers up front and another couple in the fold-up rumble seat. Finished in gloss black it features apple green wire spoke wheels mounted with wide whitewall tires. The seating surfaces are covered in leather colored to compliment the wheels and the rumble-seat even features arm-rests to make the ride a bit more comfortable. Other amenities of the day include a side door for golf clubs or picnic basket, dual side-mount spare tires with strap-on rear-view mirrors and on the folding rear rack with a large trunk mounted, ready to carry whatever would be needed for an extended road trip. Also found on this car is a chrome grille guard and on the radiator the flowing hair goddess proudly stands ready for the road. Recognized by the Classic Car Club of America, this model is very desirable for touring with the ability to roll-up the side glass in the doors for quiet comfort, or to roll with the top down for that "wind in your hair" experience. This car is sporting an older cosmetic restoration and would benefit greatly from a freshening, but even as it sits today, this is a rather attractive and very popular body style that is sure to appreciate in value just as it will be appreciated in the right collection.
