To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. A desirable and iconic Bill Mitchell designWell-presented and attractive older restorationClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic The most dramatic 1938 Cadillac was the new Series 60 Special, nestled between the entry-level 60 Series and the Fleetwood-bodied 75s. On a double-drop, lowered frame, the 60 Special (always spelled out) had a unique body and distinctive trim with wide-spaced grille bars. A five-window sedan with an exclusive greenhouse, it was styled to look like a convertible sedan in steel and had dual side-mounts.Built on a 127-in. wheelbase, the 60 Special was three inches longer and three inches lower than the 60 Series, rendering running boards superfluous. The side windows had chrome perimeter frames and thin pillars, further echoing the convertible air. The style returned for 1939 with bodies built for the 60 Special in the Fleetwood shops, Cadillacs premium in-housecoachbuilder. While significantly more expensive than 61 Series sedans at $2,195, the 60S was reasonably priced when compared to the Series 75 and 90 models for 1939. With thinner grille bars like the other Cadillacs, the 1939 60 Special retained the unique greenhouse. As before, it shared the 346-cu. in. L-head Cadillac V-8 and power train with its division siblings.This 1939 Series 60 Special was shipped on 12 November 1938, to Housatonic Motors, the Bridgeport, Connecticut, dealer. As built, it was painted Marblehead Gray with Tan Bedford Cord upholstery, and fitted with Firestone whitewall tires. The only accessories were chrome wheel discs, license plate frames, and anti-freeze. At some point in its history, perhaps by the dealer, it was fitted with a heater. The current owner purchased the Cadillac about 10 years ago from a Detroit collector, who restored it to a high standard. The current shade of burgundy paint was applied at that time. Cadillac built some 5,500 Series 60 Special sedans in1939. This car represents a chance to acquire an excellent example.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. Estimate:$25,000 - $35,000 Cadillacs luxurious long-time special modelUnique original special-order ostrich-grain leather interior Cosmetic restoration performed to a high level From its late-Depression debut until the mid-1970s, the Sixty Special Sedan occupied a unique niche in Cadillacs catalogue. Never offered as other than a single body style, it had its own distinctive appearance and, very often, its own unique wheelbase. Bodies were from Cadillacs in-house coachbuilder Fleetwood. Until 1956, the Sixty Special was a four-door sedan; beginning in 1957 a four-door hardtop sedan, but from 1959 it shared a 130-in. wheelbase with the Series 63, mid-range deVille and Eldorado. For 1961, it shrank a half-inch with them, but retained its special place in the line.By that time, the external differentiation from other Cadillacs was muted, the most obvious feature being sextuple hash marks on the rear quarterpanel and a front fender emblem (subtle aura of distinction, the factory called it). A more practiced eye would recognize the unique roofline and angled C-pillar. The interiors featured special fine-textured Cambridge or Crestwood cloth with Florentine leather bolster trim. So popular was the style, though, that the exclusivity did not translate to limited production. For 1961, 15,500 units were built. This Sixty Special Sedan was built on 15 May 1961. As ordered, it was fitted with Basic Accessory Group B, comprising air conditioning, whitewall tires, heater, radio, and EZ Eye tinted glass. Additional equipment from Group 3 includes door guards, fog lamps, and power headlight control, as well as power door locks and vent windows ordered à la carte. Painted Tunis Beige, its build sheet details a Special Request interior, which is done in the ostrich-grained leather interior that was usually exclusive to Eldorados. The current owner acquired this stunning 1961 Sixty Special about 15 years ago from aprominent Cadillac collector. About 10 years ago it was entrusted to Cadillac restorer Jenkins in North Carolina for a bare-metal repaint in the original color. The engine was removed and detailed, while all of the exterior chrome was re-plated. The ostrich-grain interior, however, is entirely original.The Sixty Special has always had a special niche in the Cadillac catalogue, and as a result in the hearts of many collectors. This car, with its special interior, most certainly is one of one, and a great opportunity to acquire a unique example.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.
