Introduced in 1938 the Sixty Special was based on Cadillac's Series 60 class and featured a steeply raked split windshield, stunning chrome grille, integrated trunk, unique X-frame, and lack of running boards. Despite being an entry level Cadillac, the Sixty Special was a hit with buyers and quickly became the standard of not only the brand, but of all luxury models produced in the years following. This particular town car was finished by the Derham Body Co. The original drivetrain has since been replaced by a modern Chevrolet 350 cu in motor backed by a TH350 automatic transmission. Power steering, power brakes, and rear seat A/C have also been installed. The result of which is a stunning 1939 Cadillac that is turn-key ready for any drive or event, no matter the distance. If the buyer so desires a correct drivetrain featuring a flathead V8 is available. Unique features of this Cadillac include: optional retractable partition glass between the front and rear seats, in-dash clock, removable roof section, four front-hinged doors, a longer 127 in wheelbase in comparison to the standard Series 60 cars, and a column mounted shift lever.
