The 1934 Cadillac V16 Fleetwood Coupe is the ultimate coupe. Built on the massive 154-inch wheelbase usually suited to a seven-seater configuration, it is one of the largest vehicles ever created to move just two people from one place to another. Launched in the midst of the Great Depression, only 56 of the Cadillac V16 series were built in 1934, and this automobile is one of only five Coupes. This model is distinguished by the introduction of independent front suspension and all-new streamlined styling, including biplane front bumpers. Powered by a mighty V16 with 452 cubic-inch displacement, this extraordinary example wears the colors of its original Quebec Gray and French Blue livery, and has the distinction of being one of just four surviving stationary coupes from the 1934 to 1937 era.
