Is this thread only dedicated for the old cadillacs ?

There is a brand new Cadillac Escalade pick up in Kerala , there is also a Caddilac Limousine in Trivandrum.

The third fourth and fifth picture are of the same car as in the second picture.
My mistake Wasif, they are indeed 2 different cars. The other cabrio (not governtment car) was posted by Julian earlier as part of some film shoot. Now Harit (quote below) has also put up the same car.

The Cadillacs from the late twenties and the thirties were very imposing vehicles.

Is it possible for pictures of cars in this age group be added here by those who have them.

Are there any V12 Caddies know to exist in India ?

Regarding new Caddies in India please refrain form posting them here as this is for vintage and classic Caddies only.

I used to be a regular visitor at the Nethercutt collection's museum at Sylmar in California and they had one car from each year that Cadillac offered the V 16's. They used to be all lined up and you could see the progression of time by walking past these cars. They also had an amazine library there too.

Default Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance !

Saw this complete beauty today.
I know she's kind of "new", but the I think given her pedigree and rarity, she instantly qualifies as a classic. Her sheer dimensions and opulence left me stunned .

Quite an excellent find Ravi.Thats a 1970's (perhaps mid 1970's model)Brougham 'd Elegance.The Cadillac Seville of this period has also the same styling cues but this one is more gorgeous.

The vinyl top is in amazing condition. I believe it to be original. Normally when they are replaced, the bottom molding is usually an after market stainless finish type molding.

Just found one more. Gondal Caddy at an exhibition celebrating 75 years of Castrol. Would like to see Castrol back at VCCCI events.
There is another Caddy next to it, only rear portion can be seen. Maybe even the car in the previous post.

Cheers harit

There was a 1940's caddy two tone i.e. Black and cream which was in calcutta about 10 years back and then this car was sold to someone.Don't remember the reg number or who it was sold to.
