1911 Cadillac Model 30 Touring Known History Original Features Pres Class
This largely original example has a known history from new. Delivered to the Inglis M. Uppercu Distributor in New York, the car is believed to have been purchased new by the Roebling Family, and remained in their Carriage House until being purchased by a collector in Stone Mountain, GA. It remained in that collection for several years before being passed on to Allen DeVann, who in turn kept the car for some time before passing it on to Bob Merrifield. Mr. Merrifield had a new top, top boot, side curtains, and tonneau fitted, replaced the rear seat leather, and installed a very discreet electric starter. He also had the Brass Lamps polished and clear coated. It is believed most of the paint is original to the car, and the car has many other interesting original features. Mr Merrifield did tour the car quite a bit during his stewardship. The seller-who purchased the car from Mr. Merrifield-has had the car roughly 15 years, and has presented it at several shows and festivals over that time where various experts have weighed in on its originality. From all indications this car has never been apart, but rather just preserved by loving caretakers all these years
The car starts right up and runs and drives very well. it could be immediately taken to any gathering of Brass Cars or toured with confidence. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a treasured heirloom that has been carefully preserved by a few select collectors over its 111 year history.
