Presumably, in just about every corner of the world right now, classic car aficionados are going positively gaga as RM Auctions prepares to sell off 75 cars from Paul and Chris Andrews’ legendary collection
As Auto Express reports, that includes this rare 1930 Cadillac V16 convertible sedan shown above.
The Cadillac V16 – a.k.a. “Cadillac Sixteen” – is commonly regarded today as one of the finest specimens of pre-war era cars. It served as a source of inspiration for the more recent Cadillac Sixteen concept from 2003, and represented the pinnacle of the Cadillac brand through the entire decade in which it was produced.
And remember, the Cadillac brand was the gold standard of the motoring world in this time.
Most examples of the Cadillac V16 were built during the first year of production, in 1930, before the Great Depression really took hold in the US and spoiled everyone’s fun. That said, the more plentiful 1930 model year examples are typically more highly valued than later years of production, and convertibles are more sought after than normal sedans. We anticipate this particular 1930 Cadillac V16 convertible to fetch somewhere around $1 million.
