This Model J 448 chassis number 2646 is one of the few retaining the original body, chassis, engine and other major components. The 420 cubic-inch 'Straight Eight' engine delivered 265 horsepower in naturally aspirated form with dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. When new, this was the only Model J equipped with vertical hood louvers. The SC-specification external exhaust pipes provided period flair and performance is enhanced by an exhaust system dump at the flip of a lever on the floor.
The Tourster features a wind-up rear windshield that could be cranked from inside the front seat back. The deletion of the rear side vents and the rear cowl made it easier for passengers to enter and exit.
This Sperimentale also known as a GTO Prototype is probably the only “Factory Entry” to compete in a color other than red. As seen here it has been restored to its original 1961 Le Mans Livery.
Utilizing a type 168/61 “Testa Rossa” engine with six carburetors #2643 debuted in a Le Mans in 1961 where it ran in the top ten until the engine expired at the 12 hour mark. In 1962 it was driven to first in class and fourth overall by Sir Stirling Moss at Daytona. Then sold to NART and raced at Sebring where it finished eighth overall and a Le Mans finishing fourth overall. It was later sold to Bill Luftman and was campaigned extensively throughout the eastern United States.

Built to each customer’s individual taste, it became an American icon of prestige and helped the company out-perform Packard and their V12. The introductory brochure proudly claimed “Sixteen-cylinder powering, complete individuality in style that, in brief, is the story of the Cadillac V16.” It was named after its 452 inch cubic displacement and produced 185 bhp which was good for 100 mph. The selling price was $6,650 with only 50 units made per year. The customer could choose between 70 or so available bodies that were elaborately finished and all highly individualized in detail.
This car was specially built for the 193 London Auto Show at Earls Court. It remained in England for more than 60 years in the hands of the original family before it was brought to the United States in the late 1990s. It is one of about a dozen right-hand drive v-16s sent to Europe in 1931 to be custom bodied. Some stayed in Europe and some were sent to India. This one of a kind V16 custom was built by Lancefield of London.
