This 1928 Cadillac Sport Phaeton was a first place winner at Amelia Island some years ago. It has been maintained to that same level of showmanship. This was the first year of Harley Earl redesigning the Cadillac, and what a job he did -- lengthening, lowering, and sculpting the car. Everyone who looks at this car thinks its a 1930s model. It has the wonderful "gangster" look to it with its low sloping forward roofline. All the options you see on the car were standard on the Sport Phaeton. The trunk contains all the side curtains and attachments, plus all the roof support pieces. When you buy this car, what do you need to do to it? The answer is nothing except sit back in a chair next to it and admire its beauty and gorgeous color scheme.
