1936 Cadillac Fleetwood Model 36-80 V-12 Rumble Seat Coupe â€œRare Carâ€ is a grossly overused term in pre-war car ads, but this one truly qualifies.
Only 901 V-12 Cadillacs were produced in 1936.
Out of that total, only 250 were of the shorter wheelbase Model 80s.
There were four different body styles, so how many were rumble seat coupes? The car features a very well done restoration to original.
It drives nicely and has been used regularly and stored inside.
The body and interior are close to perfect with only minor road marks to detract from absolute perfection.
It will place well in any car show, but is very usable as a driver.
This car is not a trailer queen and is ready to be enjoyed.
Take a walk-around and test drive with us: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnS8jZkgXEA In the interest of full disclosure, the car could use a professional tune-up even though it runs well as-is.
A quality electric fuel pump was installed at some time in the past which works well, but should have a check valve and a bypass line to allow the engine driven mechanical pump work correctly.
A new set of radial tires is in order as the present bias ply tires are worn.
The factory radio is present, but does not work.
This automobile steers delightfully and stops straight.
The clutch is smooth and the oily throb of a big twelve is pure ecstasy to enjoy.
It turns heads and gets multiple thumbs-up from young and old alike.
All it wants are a new owner, a full tank of gas, a sweet girl, an ice chest, and a destination.
