I’ll try to let the pictures do the talking today.
Pictures of a magnificent 1930 Cadillac Model 452 V-16 All-Weather Phaeton, body by Fleetwood. As best as I can tell, Cadillac produced no more than 258 of this particular model in 1930-31. The “MSRP” was either $6,650 or $7,350; this was during the Great Depression when one could buy a Chevrolet for $495.
This gorgeous 1934 Packard Twelve Sport Phaeton (body by Lebaron) finished second in the judges voting at Hershey. When new this car was offered for $7,065. Packard produced 55 models for 1934 including custom-bodied cars like this; however, they only sold 8,000 cars for that model year, their nadir during the Great Depression. By 1937 Packard sales had increased to almost 123,000, which I believe was the most in company history.
Two views of the beautiful venue. We were lucky in that the weather was excellent; in 2018 it rained on Elegance day.
I’ll probably resume Throwback Thursday tomorrow with no guarantees that it will be automobile related.
