1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule so cool! Gangster?
https://www.youtube.com/user/MustangConnection1 Far from a Mustang but way too cool not to post. 1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule soo cool! Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission Special build limo with inch thick glass and carefully drilled gun ports in front, side and back windows In deteriorated condition and ready for a complete full restoration Chassis no. 5100136 Body Style 6075 Body no. 356 Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 154-inches. At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it gets more and more curious. The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number 356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21, 1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to history. The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they sometimes wore.
Riding In A 1937 Packard V12
In this video, I go for a ride in a 1937 Packard V12 at Automobile Driving Museum. I know this may be the same kind of vehicle like the '36 Standard 8, but the engine is the difference. Recorded on March 13, 2016.
