Vehicle Description

The 1939 Cadillac Series 61 was a car appreciated in its time, being Cadillac's best-selling model line for the year. Minor cosmetic changes were made from the previous year, as well as some modifications meant to enhance ride comfort.

Look at this beautiful '39 Cadillac for sale in Memphis by Art & Speed, and you'll see it's still worthy of appreciation today. The consignor of the vehicle says that when you're driving this car, "You can't stop without talking to people. If you don't feel like talking to people, don't drive it." Are you ready to have people ask if they can have their picture taken in your car? It was loved in 1939, and it's still loved today.

In much the same spirit as Cadillac, a few modifications were made in the restoration process of this '39 Caddy with a nod toward comfort and driveability: air conditioning, aftermarket stereo, power steering, power brakes, improved suspension, and a modern engine that jumps to life.

If that's not enough, the cool factor ratchets higher when you know the car was used in the filming of the 2005 Johnny Cash film, Walk the Line, and was featured on the cover of the Jerry Lee Lewis album, Mean Old Man.

The car has won numerous People's Choice and Mayor's Choice awards at car shows. Check it out yourself and see if it's not your choice, too! Call Art & Speed today. (901) 850-0507. Financing available.
