Finished in a fitting shade of Brewster Green with bright red accents, this 1907 Model M Touring is an early motorcar that makes for an entrance that’s impossible to miss. This car was fully restored in 2013 and presents today in outstanding condition. It was purchased from a private collection and has been meticulously maintained to very high standards. The elegance of Cadillac’s design is clearly evident even in this early example with stylish brass lanterns mounted on the cowl while another singular brass lantern lights the rear. The chassis is fully detailed in all areas and this Cadillac rides on wood spoke artillery wheels and blackwall tires that have many thousands of miles left to offer. This Cadillac is also very well-sorted mechanically and is “tour ready” with all systems tuned and adjusted. Getting this vintage Cadillac up and running is made easier thanks to a retrofitted and cleverly disguised electric starter on the flywheel that makes bringing its one-cylinder engine to life a snap. This common component is also easily removed for authentication and judging for weekends on the show field. The interior is nicely finished in black leather and, as a touring car, has ample room for four passengers. The simplistic charm of the early motorcar is clearly evident while sitting in the driver’s seat with right-hand-drive, a beautiful wood steering wheel, and controls that are easily in reach for carefree driving. Power for this Model M comes from a 98 cubic-inch horizontal single-cylinder engine with 10 horsepower mated to a two-speed planetary transmission and chain drive. Its exterior appearance is also nicely enhanced with a full convertible “cape” top that features diamond patterned windows at the rear. Documentation of this Cadillac’s restoration is in the form of a picture board that shows its complete restoration and a reproduction service manual also comes with the car. This Cadillac has also yet to make its formal show debut, leaving the new owner the pleasure of presenting it on the concours field.
