From the famed Eugene Beardslee collection. An impeccably restored 39-90 V16 limousine that is the best of the best. Cadillac's top pre-war motorcar, this Fleetwood Formal Sedan seats 7 is drop dead gorgeous and drives beautifully. Style Number is 39-9033-F, the Formal Sedan. Rich appointments include original intercom, jump seats, vanity mirror in hidden sleeve, divider glass and an informative original oversized dealer brochure. They just don't come any better. Finished in midnight blue. This rare example was ordered new by Calumet Farms, the legendary thoroughbred breeding and training farm in Lexington, Kentucky. The buyer was most likely Warren Wright, Sr., the son of the founder W.M. Wright. Calumet Farm's breeding success is world-renowned to this day. Eight Kentucky Derby winners have been produced there, more than any other operation is U.S. racing history. Triple Crown winner Man of War came from Calumet, as you can see in the accompanying vintage video. In 2011, the car required only light refreshening, a testament to the quality of the Hibernia restoration. The fuel pump was rebuilt and new plugs and a new battery installed. We are currently sorting through a few minor cosmetic issues: 1. Passenger door small window crank handle is original, but needs refitting 2. Side mount mirror glass appears to be original and has some minor fogging on the glass. 3. Windshield wiper vacuum motor not working. Calumet Farm owned this Cadillac through the 1970s and perhaps up until the death of Lucille Wright, wife of Warren Wright. When Gene Beardslee acquired this fine automobile, he undertook a year long ground up restoration with Hibernia in 1983. The result yielded a national "Best Closed Car" award at Fisher Island in 1992, an AACA Best of Show at Westbury Gardens in 2000, among other awards. For sale or trade.
