Windsori hertsogi 1941Cadillac Custom Limousine "The Duchess"

Pilt

Dubbed The Duchess, the limousine features rose-coloured broadcloth upholstery, four jewellery cases and three cigar lighters.

It's estimated to fetch between 500,000 and 800,000 dollars (£309,000 to £494,000) when it is sold on November 21 by Sotheby's and RM Auctions.

General Motors delivered the limo to the Windsors at the Waldorf Astoria, where they had a suite. The duke paid 14,000 (£8,700) for it.

It was one of the first Cadillacs to have power windows and is fitted with satin privacy curtains.

It's being sold with the car title bearing the duke's signature.

The current owner is an Alabama food critic and Cadillac collector. Morgan Murphy found it in a barn next to a tractor in Texas in 2005.

NEW YORK, New York (October 24, 2013) – One of the most famous and iconic cars of both American and English society, a 1941 Cadillac Custom Limousine that was designed for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, will be offered at RM Auctions and Sotheby’s exclusive Art of the Automobile sale, November 21, in New York City. Affectionately known as “The Duchess,” the Cadillac was a bespoke order to provide the Duke and Duchess of Windsor with luxury transportation during their periods of residence in New York, and it is a car that became a regular feature in press images and newsreels of the time.



This stunning automobile is one of the most famous Cadillacs ever produced, and it exudes an air of luxury and exclusivity, befitting of its original owners and their tastes. The Cadillac is understated and decidedly European in its elegance, from the limited use of chrome to the Windsor “W.E.” monogram and crown on the door. This streamlined styling by the designers at General Motors, then under the purview of the legendary Harley Earl and on a direct order from GM Chairman and CEO Alfred P. Sloan, would foreshadow American and English designs of years to come.



The story of King Edward Vlll and his abdication from the British throne is one of the most fascinating and enduring of all love stories, and it was an episode that rocked the British constitution and society at the time. The King publicly announced, “You must believe me when I tell you, that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility, and to discharge my duties as King, as I would wish to do, without the help and support of the woman I love.” The King’s love for American socialite Wallis Simpson would become one of the most famous romances of all time, and the abdication heralded the beginning of what was to become nearly a 40 year international jet-set existence for the newly named Duke and Duchess of Windsor.



The couple spent much of their time in New York, living in a suite at the Waldorf Towers on Park Avenue, and for 11 years, their beloved Cadillac, “The Duchess,” was with them. According to records, the Duke of Windsor paid an astonishing $14,000 for the masterwork of Art Deco design, an extravagant sum in 1941.



No single body panel on the Windsors’ car matched any other 1941 Cadillac. The hood, trunk, fenders, fender skirts, roof, and doors were all crafted by hand, and all of the interior appointments were hand-fitted. Inside, the car was upholstered entirely in rose-colored custom broadcloth, extending even to the headlining and sun visors. The floors were covered in Wilton wool carpet, custom-dyed to match and set against custom walnut finishes for the doors, cabinetry, and divider window. It was one of the first two Cadillacs to be equipped with power windows (the other being Alfred P. Sloan’s personal car). They were fitted with satin privacy curtains that would roll away when not in use.



Additional special fixtures included four brushed stainless-steel jewelry cases, each lined in velvet, to carry the Duchess’ famous jewelry purchases and, for the Duke, no fewer than three cigar lighters and two ashtrays, along with a humidor and custom rack for his favored Sasieni pipes. As the Duke was a well-known enthusiast of automobiles, it was expected that he would take the wheel of the car on occasion. As a result, unusually for a limousine at the time, the front compartment was detailed to be as elegant and opulent as the rear, including its own radio, with a manually controlled roof-mounted antennae and buttons preset to New York City AM stations of the era.



Alain Squindo, Vice President, RM Auctions, says, “This Cadillac is an exceptionally important part of both automotive and social history, and it is particularly appropriate that the car should be offered for sale in New York, the city to which it was delivered new and in which it has not been seen in many years. From front to back and throughout the entire interior, it is a design statement unlike any other to come from Detroit in those years.”



Leslie Keno, Senior International Specialist from Sotheby’s, adds, “Much like the record-setting emerald-eyed panther bracelet sold at the final Sotheby’s auction of the Duke and Duchess’ collections, this Cadillac is the pinnacle of design. It is emblematic not only of the grace and elegance that characterized the couple, but it is a truly bespoke piece, befitting its regal owners.”



“The Duchess” comes to auction in outstanding, restored condition, and it is accompanied by copies of original historic photography from General Motors, press clippings, and newsreels of the era featuring the Windsors’ with their beloved Cadillac. Further confirming the car’s royal provenance is a copy of the 1952 New York State title, bearing the Duke’s signature, address at the Waldorf, and the car’s serial number. It is estimated to fetch between $500,000 and $800,000 when it goes under the gavel next month.



Proudly presented by RM Auctions and Sotheby’s, ‘Art of the Automobile’ is the first major collector car auction to be held in Manhattan in over a decade. With an emphasis on bespoke design and best of category examples from the world’s most admired automotive marques, the sale will feature one of the most significant collections of motor cars offered in auction history. In total, some 30 automobiles will go under the gavel at the November 21 auction. As a prelude to the sale, an extraordinary exhibition that showcases the vehicles on offer will be held from November 18–20 on the 10th floor galleries at Sotheby’s New York—a setting customarily reserved for the display of world-class works of art offered at Sotheby’s.

1938 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 Limo Levi Strauss & Co.

The Cadillac Series 75 was the marque's flagship V8 from 1936 onwards. Production of the full-size V8 powered Cadillac's would continue from the 1930s through the 1950s. It served as a replacement for the outgoing 355-D and was introduced around the same time as the less-expensive Series 60 model.

The gorgeous Cadillac you see here is a fine example of the “Standard of the World” luxury car, in limousine form with only 40 examples of this car produced in 1938, how many remain today? This particular car was originally built for the Levi Strauss Company in San Francisco, California, as we were informed by the previous owner. We do not have any documents to back this claim. This full classic has just recently been highly detailed and looks incredible, with no major imperfections of any kind; however there is a scratch on the right front fender. The black exterior is so deep and shiny; you may think you could reach your hand into it! The chrome appears to have been rechromed in the recent past as both the bumpers look great and only have minor scratching. The black vinyl top also looks great with no notable imperfections but is original.

Inside the car, you’ll take a step back into the 1930’s and really feel what luxury meant. This limo retains its original style brown and pinstripe cloth interior and looks beautiful. The dashboard is also original and maintains its original, ritzy charm from 77 years ago. The two rear jump seats fold down with ease still to this day! The carpet and headliner are also in fantastic condition and look great. This car is the definition of luxury in its classiest form!

Under the hood sits the Monobloc 350 cubic inch V8 attached to a manual transmission. The original Cadillac wheels are still intact and hugged with good looking white wall tires.

The VIN on this beauty is 3271537 and the current mileage shows 47,274, which is said to be original for the Cadillac. This car is being sold on a clean Missouri title.

1998 Popemobile, kükitab Peterseni muuseumis

1998 Cadillac De Ville parade phaeton, more commonly known as a “Popemobile.” The vehicle was specially designed for the late Pope John Paul II to present his now famous “Address to All Generations” to a crowd of more than 100,000 of his followers in the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Until recently, the Popemobile resided in the General Motors Heritage Center Collection. The car briefly visited the Petersen Automotive Museum in 2005 for the “Presidents, Popes and Potentates: Cars of Heads of State” exhibit.
Lengthened and modified into a convertible, the lavish DeVille is equipped with an elevated platform for the armchair-like papal seat, wide doors, retractable steps and official Vatican seals and flags. While the General Motors de Mexico design studio began work on the car, Cadillac contracted with the American coachbuilding firms of Eureka Coach and Roush Technologies to complete the project in a mere six weeks. The Pontiff blessed the vehicle upon its debut.

Kuigi asi feissaris on see siiski nähtav kõigile. FB võib küll korraks kobiseda.

History annab väikese ülevaate Al Capone käkiläkist.
