Lot 012: 1926 CADILLAC MODEL 314 OPERA COUPE

Van Dijk Collection, H&H Sales Limited (3 October 2005)

Finished in two-tone green over black with wooden artillery wheels, this particular left-hand drive example carries Opera Coupe coachwork by Fisher. Imported to the UK in 1979, it retains a number of old MOT certificates and road tax discs dating back to the early 1980s. Trimmed in light brown cloth, the provision of a fold-out occasional seat in the front means that either two or three people can be accommodated (the rear seat being designed so that its sole occupant is encouraged to sit across the vehicle with plenty of room for a voluminous dress). Benefiting from a wind-up 'V-V' windscreen, rear window blind, vanity light, flower vase, Twin-Beam Monogram headlights, Parson's nose rear light, Motometer and twin spares, this imposing Cadillac carries a mysterious 'JB' monogram to each door.
