The V-12's, introduced just nine months after the V-16's, were built on a 140 inch chassis that was also shared by the V-8 that was the mainstay of Cadillac's line-up. The smaller engine was known for free revving and smooth, even power. Twenty different models were available in the V-12. The Roadster, the sportiest vehicle in the lineup, was one of the most desirable of the V-12 cars available.
The well known history of ownership for this particular V-12 Roadster Is well documented for the past 30 years and the Original Celebrity Ownership is currently being researched.
