Car description from seller:
The 1941 Cadillac Convertible Coupe is one of the most desired Cadillacs ever built; few of the 3,100 manufactured remain today. Buyers at the time would walk right by a Rolls-Royce or Mercedes-Benz -- or a Packard -- if they could have a Cadillac instead. Indeed, Cadillac boasted in 1941 that "In the field above two thousand dollars, approximately two-thirds of all motorists make Cadillac their choice." Buyers knew that Cadillac was a solid, reliable and beautiful car that would arouse the envy of their neighbors -- and it was American in the best sense of the word. It has been said that esthetically Cadillac was to 1941, what Cord was to 1936 and Duesenberg to 1929. (Roy A. Schneider, Cadillacs of the Forties, published by Cadillac Motorbooks, 1988). The 1941 Convertible Coupe is virtually flawless in its graceful and tasteful styling. The dominant chrome grille, high-crowned coffin hood and heavy bumpers were skillfully grafted into the beautifully styled bodywork. It was the first time in which a front valance panel filled the space between the bottom of the grille and the front bumper. A grille guard was built into the front bumper between the vertical bumper guards and the entire front end was graced by a new Flying Lady mascot. The convertible top is raised and lowered by vacuum assisted cylinders – unlike previous models that had hand-operated tops. It is also important to note that this was the final year where there were no rear quarter windows. The 1941 Convertible Coupe is especially desired by collectors today because it is one of the last pre-war Cadillac convertibles ever built. The U.S. Office of Production Management had anticipatorily ordered auto production cutbacks in August 1941 to 73.5 percent of 1940 output. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. entered World War II on December 8, just hours after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, forcing an industry-wide conversion to the manufacture of war materials. Production was halted altogether on February
