GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present for your consideration this
gorgeous 1941 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special 4-door luxury classic.
It has been owned by the current owner for the past 13 years and
was meticulously cared for and stored in a carpeted showroom, where
no expense was spared while keeping it in beautiful condition. The
car spent some time in Florida visiting various car shows, Concours
Shows and other events. The car also attended the Glenmoor
Gathering of Significant Automobiles and Ohio Region Classic Car
Club of America and did very well. The car was also featured in
numerous newspaper articles.
The car has been researched and traced all the way back to 1941. It was built later in the year and was shipped to the Cadillac Zone Manager in Chicago , IL and was never titled. It remained in Chicago at the Zone office until the end of World War 2. After the war doctors were given the first choice to purchase the new vehicles, a doctor bought and kept the car until 1980 and was stored after his death for another 10 years and then the car was transferred to Ohio.

The car is powered by a 346 flathead v8 paired with a 3 on the tree manual transmission. The car comes with repair manuals, restoration pictures and miscellaneous records. The owner also had seatbelts installed. As you can see in the photos, the condition of the car inside and out is immaculate. This car is turn - key, ready to go for the next owner.
