Cadillac broadened its market coverage in 1936 with the introduction of the series 60 family of vehicles – completely new to Cadillac. They were priced very fairly and showed extraordinary performance. They ran on a 121-inch wheelbase which was 7 inches shorter than the smallest 1935 Cadillac. New, also for 1936 was the redesigned L-Head V-8 with 322 cubic-inches which was rated at 125 bhp. Behind it was a three speed manual transmission. All 1936 Cadillacs were equipped with GM's knee-action independent front suspension and had the new duo-servo hydraulic brakes. Also new to this Cadillac was a center-point steering and a front stabilizer bar which was an industry first and complimented the carry-over rear stabilizer bar and contributed to the exceptional handling on the 36's. There were three series 60 body styles; a three window coupe, four-door sedan, and a sporty convertible couple w/ rumble seat. All of the bodies were done by Fisher – the larger Cadillac vehicles had bodies finished by Fleetwood.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this highly desirable 1936 Series 60 V-8 Convertible Coupe with rumble seat. It is rumored that this is one of ten remaining in the United States! This car has been included in the Meadowbrook Concours d'Elegance, Eyes on Design Show, and the Henry Ford Muster and has won many trophies and awards. It has also been on the Woodward Dream Cruise many times and has proven how easy it can handle any type of traffic situations. This Cadillac is actually a celebrity! – It was the “Cover Car” in the October of 2012 edition of Collectible Automobile. This vehicle was purchased by the current owner in 1969. The car is very original, complete and correct – it was driven for about 15 years as-is and then commenced a complete body off restoration which was done in the 1980's. The body, fenders, floors, etc. were in excellent condition and needed little to no work done to them other than stripping and painting. The restoration consisted of a complete mechanical restoration of the engine, transmission, brakes, rear end, wiring, new paint, new upholstery, new chrome, new glass, top, restored gauges, etc. When the car was originally restored it was finished in a lacquer paint, but over the years the lacquer paint began to crack, resulting in the car to be completely stripped down to bare metal and repainted again – this was in 2007. The car is finished in the factory correct 1936 Cadillac Colonial Crème and it looks absolutely phenomenal. The chassis was re-detailed as needed and a new top was also installed. Today, the car shows extremely well, runs wonderfully, and everything seems to function as it should. Please call or email today for more information on this lovely 1936 Cadillac Series 60.
