Cadillac had long established its reputation as a leader for innovation and quality in the luxury car market by the 1920s. The long-running and fierce battle with Packard for sales supremacy meant Cadillac engineers were constantly striving for new ideas to refine and enhance their vehicles. As the decade drew to a close Cadillac was highly motivated to retake their standing at the top of the sales charts from their cross-town rivals. The introduction of the junior LaSalle brand in 1927 helped greatly in their quest and was intended to complement the senior models which in 1927 consisted of the Model 314 V8 series. A dizzying array of body styles were offered from the standard Cadillac bodies to the Custom lines from both Fisher and Fleetwood.We are very pleased to offer this truly stunning 1927 Model 314 wearing a Double Cowl Sport Phaeton body from the Fisher Body Custom line. It is presented in magnificent colors; the all-black body and fenders accented with a simple but bold red inlay and subtle cream-colored coach lines. The combination is breathtaking and the quality of the restoration equally impressive. This highly desirable and stylish 314 was treated to a comprehensive concours-quality restoration and has seen only light use since completion. It has been shown and obsessively well cared-for remaining in impeccable condition. The black paint is beautifully applied over laser straight panels and the extensive brightwork and detailing are in beautiful condition. It is fitted with drum headlights very rare dual drum-style Pilot-ray spot lamps drum cowl lamps Cadillac mirrors mounted on dual-sidemount spares and the first known Cadillac radiator mascot a herald in Cadillac regalia proudly trumpeting the praises of the marque. In the rear is found a painted trunk rack with a fantastic period trunk and black canvas cover. This is an extremely handsome body that looks elegant with the top up or down though we are particularly fond of the sporting attitude it takes on with the top down and both windscreens folded flat.Occupants are treated to a gorgeous red interior that matches the red flash on the bodywork. Gray carpeting bound in red provides a bit of subtle contrast. The leather upholstery is simply exquisite showing little signs of use and virtually no creasing. There is a beautifully finished wood-rimmed steering wheel perched atop a chromed steering column and complemented by a matching wood gear knob. The highlight of the interior however has to be the instrument panel; a stunningly ornate affair with a wood fascia surrounded by gorgeous gold inlay. The instruments themselves are fully restored and the Cadillac crest is proudly inlaid in gold. Rear passengers are treated to their own cowl and windscreen for comfort and weather protection as well as courtesy lights and a storage compartment built into the rear of the front seat.The engine drivetrain and chassis are all detailed to concours standards the quality of the restoration backed by a CCCA Senior Award badge earned in 2005. This fabulous Cadillac has been the proud showpiece of a dedicated marque enthusiast who has bestowed upon it years of care. We love the Harley Earl styling the breathtaking Fleetwood detailing and would proudly use this handsome desirable and rare Cadillac for show or touring. This is a very worthy addition to virtually any collection.
