A rare Cadillac will be going over the auction block on November 21st by Sotheby’s. It is a 1941 Cadillac custom built for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, the Cadillac is named “The Duchess”. It is expected to go for anywhere from $500,000 to 800,000. Personally I can see it going higher than that. Not bad considering it was $14,000 when it was originally purchased. It will be interesting to see what it goes for. There may even be a bidding war.
While browsing the Sotheby’s website I saw they just had an auction for a picture of Marilyn Monroe and a 1941 Cadillac. Very nice curves if I do say so myself. Wouldn’t mind doing a replica to this in a updated setting. All I need is a 1950’s Cadillac and a model. Going to add this to my to-do list. This picture sold for $11,250.
Grand National Video
When Karl told me last week that he couldn’t stay for the awards I figured there would be a video up online and sure enough there is. It is in two parts, Thanks to Earle for sending it in. At the 47 minute mark of the second video you can hear Earles Cadillac getting named 1st place for his class.
