1930 Cadillac Model 353 Convertible Coupe Primrose Yellow

1 hit ID #7970


The car is currently finished in a delightful Primrose Yellow paint with black fenders and running boards. The paint, although aging, remains in good condition with a nice glossy look to it. There is some cracking and fading in high wear areas, such as around the doors and the from cowl area, that would be considered of a patina nature, simply adding to the overall character of the car. The body is very straight and solid with good panel and door gaps. The hood fits nicely with no signs of deformation.
The Brown leather interior appears to have been restored around the same time or perhaps a bit more recently than the rest of the vehicle and has held up splendidly. The door cards are tight and well trimmed with only some minor staining in the areas of window winder and door pull operation. The wooden frames of the door jambs appear to be nice and dry and structurally sound but do display some cracking paint etc. The brown leather seat is in excellent condition with no major wear to speak of. The cushions are full and the leather is tight and clean. The brown carpeting is in good shape with a bit of fading and wear around the edges but overall, very consistent with the rest of the vehicle. There is some patina on some of the plated and painted surfaces of the interior but once again, its very consistent with the car and nothing that requires attention at this time.
The V8 engine has been maintained in nice operating order and fires to life with a few turns of the starter and a little help from the choke. It easily settles into a smooth and elegantly muffles rumble. It revs freely and appears to make sufficient power in our limited testing.
The combination of the smooth and quiet V8 engine and the synchromesh gearbox make this Cadillac series 353 a fantastic and easy driving car. The delightful convertible coupe body adds to the appeal of the vehicle in being both a rare design while also having fantastic lines and excellent road presence. This series 353 has been well kept and is in good overall condition with delightful patina scattered throughout the vehicle. It remains in solid mechanical condition and with a bit of additional sorting would make for an excellent vintage touring car.
