That car has been for sale for at least 2 years. I might have posted it here a year or so ago.  I spoke to the owner wanting to purchase when I was in the CLC. I have a strong affection for no particular reason for 1920s Cadillacs post Leland. 
 

Would love to own this and I have kept my eye on a 1939 Series 75 Fleetwood in the low 20’s.  Wrong time for me so I doubt I ever jump back in to the hobby but if I had garage space a person could likely get two pre war Cadillacs for less than $42,000.

$17,000 seems like a good price for this car.

And the all-important contact information from the ad is:

"Contact Betty or Charles, (Two hundred fourteen) 608-613-Eight


That was my first thought too John. It looks like it could be a lot of fun around that price point.

A while back, there was a grandson(?) who was offering a Cad of the same era that had been dismantled by grandpa years ago. (now just a collection of parts) Mom had to approve the sale, but the exact details were never totally clear. Except that it had to be removed from the property soon. 

 

As I remember that family wanted about this same amount and this nice one has been available for a year? 

 

If you are not involved with the hobby, I guess all old cars look alike and they all hold the same value. 

Wonder what ever happened to the dismantled car. . . . .

I was told it traded hands, with missing parts, to a new owner in Oklahoma. They said the car was being assembled without being restored as a driver..........

 

For the money, the above car looks like a decent opportunity for the right guy.

My first thought was that there is a guy out there with a 39-41 Cadillac, an early and late Fifties Cadillac who has always wanted an early car just for the experience. This looks like a possibility for someone that has the newer stuff to scratch that itch without writing a big check on the front end.
