1931 CADILLAC FLEETWOOD IMPERIAL LIMOUSINE
The 1931 Cadillac 452A Fleetwood Imperial Limousine of CCCA member Dave Gano was featured in a Wall Street Journal article by A.J. Baimea aptly titled "Cadillac With Gatsby-esque Grandeur" – the article was published on September 27, 2016.
Dave, who restored Cadillacs with his father, spent 22 months restoring this car that is powered by a 452-cubic inch, 16-cylinder engine. Built to make very little noise, Baimea reported the sound of air going into the carburetors is about all you hear when you rev the engine. The grand limousine weighs well over 6,000 pounds, which is more than the biggest Cadillac Escalade made today.
It is also notable that Dave’s work on restoring the Cadillac earned both third in its class at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Congratulations Dave.
