Bruce Nunnally Posted January 10, 2015 Report Share Posted January 10, 2015 This 1931 Cadillac V16 Roadster that will be sold at RM Auction’s Scottsdale event on January 15, 2015 is touted as being “in the style of Fleetwood.” What that means is that this vehicle has an authentic 1931 V16 chassis and engine, but the body is not the one that was born with the car. What happened to the original? Perhaps it was recycled during the war effort a decade later. Perhaps it was a worthless car at some point and converted to a tow truck for a junkyard (yes, that’s happened) . . . whatever the case, the original body is missing. The restorer in this case rebuilt the Cadillac based on existing Fleetwood-bodied cars and drawings. Among the group of collectors into cars from this era, this is considered acceptable but, of course, its value will be affected.
