Cadillac Convertible Coupe
Cadillac celebrated record sales in 1929, marking the GM Division’s most successful year in its history to date. The new and improved series 341-B models entered production at the Clark Avenue, Detroit plant in August 1928, and while outwardly quite similar to the 341-A of 1928, many improvements provided a quantum leap forward in ease of operation, safety and reliability.
The 341-B Cadillac models of 1929 were immediately recognizable by their relocated parking lamps on the front fender crowns, along with the exclusive use of chrome-plated brightwork. Shatterproof safety glass and reliable electric windshield wipers were standard safety features for 1929, along with new Duplex-mechanical brakes, which utilized internal brake shoes and required less pedal pressure than before. The new full-synchromesh manual transmission provided unprecedented driving ease, while Cadillac’s V-8 engine offered heightened longevity with its improved lubrication system.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2010 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pennsylvania.
