Even though there were no major stylistic breakthroughs with the series 341-B Cadillac’s, the cars featured a number of technical advancements that set them apart from their contemporaries. Shatterproof Security Plate glass in all windows was an important safety feature in 1929. The newly designed four-wheel Duplex-mechanical brakes required less pedal pressure for surer stops. The fitting of double-acting Delco hydraulic shock absorbers enhanced both handling and ride. To accommodate drivers and passengers of all sizes, Cadillac installed fully adjustable front seats. There was also an increase in power; Cadillac’s smooth 341 cubic inch V8 was fitted with a new Cadillac/Johnson float-feed carburetor and produced 90 brake horsepower.
This 7-passenger Touring Cadillac is a nice original example that has been recently rebuilt mechanically and painted. It mainly remains all original on the underside and interior. It has a rear Tonneau windscreen for the rear passenger and of course jump seats for the extra passengers. The original side curtain’s are still in the bag under the front seat.
Looking closely at the pictures, you will see the original Fisher body stamps in the wood sills showing this to be a true “numbers matching”, hence the stampings on the sill match the firewall tag.
Engine number is 322910 which is correct for 1929. Its rebuilt & runs well as seen in the video. Mileage shows 43,300.
The Cadillac was sold new by Inglis M. Uppercu at the Uppercu Cadillac Building in Manhattan, New York as per the dealer tag on the rear of the car.
