Cadillac 355C Five-Passenger Town Sedan
In many ways, 1933 represented the best of times and the worst of times for Cadillac. On the one hand, its evolutionary styling appeared fresh and new, but on the other, sales bottomed out for the worst year in the Depression. There was nowhere to go but up, and the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair titled “A Century Of Progress” was one of the places where automotive manufacturers had a chance to display their wares. New was Fisher No-Draft ventilation, soon to sweep the industry. There were sixteen body styles on two wheelbases, and the Style #252 Five-Passenger Town Sedan with blind rear quarters was one of the more exclusive-looking offerings by Fisher Body.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2011 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pennsylvania.
115 bhp, 353 cu. in. L-head V-8, three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 140"
