You are most welcome!  We are all habitual, inveterate old car shoppers, happy with our current fleet but also always on the lookout and hunt for the next one we've always thought would be fun to own.  There is a cornucopia of choice cars becoming available now.

That sounds right to this novice who only ever tracked the *asking* prices via HMN. Which, btw, this car is listed for less than the cost of the engine rebuild for my utilitarian low brow 4-cyl nickel age car.

 

Anyone know (and I’m NOT suggesting this car needs it or will need it) what these engines are like to have rebuilt?

Can a lot of shops do it or would it be left to the handful that can tackle the earlier pre-war stuff that costs more than an arm and 2 legs?

(Is the engine more modern is what I’m getting at)

The motors are much easier than the earlier stuff.......but still require people familiar with early engines. I wouldn’t trust it to a modern machine shop.

This is a nice pre-war Cadillac.  Although it's not a coupe and doesn't have the V12 engine it's still a nice car to consider.  Seller makes no claims about the paint however the interior is original to the car.  I admit I am chewing on buying it!  HELP, old cars are an addiction!

You’re asking the wrong guys for help....

In fact I can’t think of a better car to compliment that stunning ‘40 Pontiac.

As nice as the interior is, I'd be mightily surprised if the paint isn't original. Last year for Caddy V12's was 1937, and IMHO, the extra four cylinders, especially in a sedan, are more trouble than they're worth. The V8's a good motor, and this is a great car. Nice proportions.

Car is already sold since yesterday  ....Somebody from colorado bought it .

Someone bought what looks to be a great car. I hope the buyer enjoys it.  The listing indicates it came from an estate and one wonders if there are more old cars in that estate.
