1936 Cadillac Coupe

No secret this blogger favors the automobiles of the late 1930s and those of the Forties bookending WWII. Here's one of the most elegant coupes we've seen lately and nicely done. Pretty good-sized engine for the time, a V-8 of 346 cubic inches and producing 135 horsepower. 

This year saw the introduction of "knee-action" suspension and Bendix Dual Action brakes. This particular restoration was whisper quiet, we noted, as it left the fairgrounds.

The rear view shows the smallish trunk, and above the tail light, the little step one uses to access the rumble seat which takes up most of the trunk space.
