1931 Cadillac V8 Series 5 355-A Phaeton

J. J. Best Banc & Co.

The 1931 Cadillac series 355A was longer and lower than its predecessor, the 353. It also had a longer hood with five hood ports and matching doors in the cowl. For the first time, the floor boards were made of metal, and the battery and tool compartment were under the front seat. The instrument panel was oval but the same gauge groupings remained as in the Series 353.

The Series 355A featured dual horns, a single bar bumper, a radiator screen and a new frame with divergent side rails. The suspension springs had metal coverings, and the radiator was mounted lower in the frame with a condenser tank for cooling. The engine was the same 353 cu in L-head V8 as in the Series 353 with a 3-speed synchromesh manual transmission.

This 1931 Phaeton is in excellent driving condition. Although not a fresh restoration, it has been nurtured and is ready for any Classic Car Club of America tour. Its dual windshield protects its rear seat passengers from any inclement weather conditions, and the Fleetwood body is comfortable and roomy. It has a new top and boot, and a complete set of side curtains are included.

Driver and passenger wind wings are not only stylish but enhance touring comfort. The twin side-mounted tires with chrome covers complete the elegant look, but the pilot ray lights are the accessories that set this Cadillac above the rest. When new, this Cadillac had a retail price of over $3,000 compared to a Model A Ford at roughly $500.
