1932 Cadillac 355 Convertible Coupe For Sale

Recommended Posts

OK All you guys. You got off the subject of the 32 Cadillac and started talking about the Cord at Hershey.  WRONG subject here! Let's get back to the 32 Cad 355 Convertible that I am trying to find a new home for! Bill WANTED six figures, but he also wants to SELL THIS CAR. I have it here in my shop and I WANT MAY SHOP SPACE BACK. What am I saying? -- Well BLUNTLY,: Where are those three different folks that made offers?  NOW they need to get back in this ASAP... I NEED room so I can start my 29 Cad project!

How MUCH? well, 70 was on the table, Bill said no.. NOW things are changed. Where is that 70+ offer?

I think someone is close to missing a great deal.

Yes, I know the car owner wants to have it off his plate...  I have the car here inside my garage and I sure would like the use of my garage space so I can start working on my 29 Cad 341B. No room to do that until the 32 is sold.

I have someone "on the way" form the east coast to see the 32 Cadillac. He is at 80 grand. I told him to bring money.

I just had the Cadillac out for a new video. I have two guys with offers on the table, but have not seen any cash from either of them yet. First guy requested more information about engine condition, so I pulled the heads and pan, checked out crank bearing clearances, pulled all the valves to give them a little touch-up. Rebuilt the vacuum pump and did some painting. The engine looks like it was totally rebuilt during the complete restoration. Odometer just turned 400 miles. The notes Ted made when he was restoring the car, say he had all the instruments restored and set to zero, so I suppose the car has 400 miles since it was restored.

Wow, tearing the engine apart to satisfy a tire-kicker is really going the extra mile--no way I'd do that on a maybe. I'd need a substantial deposit and the work would be done at his expense with a refund forthcoming only if defects were found. And despite your best efforts, I bet he still vanishes without a word. My experience with guys who ask about the engine's condition actually mean they want highly detailed receipts and extensive rebuilder's notes that are no more than two weeks old, all from the best shop in the world with a written guarantee for life. That question also often suggests a guy who doesn't know a lot about cars and simply assumes that the engine is the most expensive part of a restoration and is where someone (like him) would cut corners. He expects to be ripped off, because, obviously, people tend to restore cars and spend tens of thousands of dollars but just throw junkyard motors in them to save a buck. :rolleyes:

That looks like a great car. I can’t believe it hasn’t sold yet.

Well, I still have the Cadillac. Have had a few contacts that claimed to be buyers but when I asked for name, where they were living and phone number, they vanished into the twilight zone. I still have one that flew in from the east coast, looked a the car, went for a ride (I drove) and told me he wants it as soon as he has his money in place. Meanwhile, the car is For Sale to the first acceptable offer. No deposits, no hold until you fill your bank account, no trades. 

Here is a new video:
