A 1932 Cadillac V16 Fisher Convertible Coupe will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s this month.

The car on sale is one of four V16 Fisher Convertible Coupes and was purchased new from a New York dealer. Note that the second owner bought this car in 1965 and was going to work on it, despite its good condition. At the same time, it so happened that after a couple of years the car was purchased by the next owner, from whom it was idle until the 1990s.

The V16 Fisher Convertible Coupe was then bought by collector Ronald Benach, who handed it over for restoration, in which the car was painted green and equipped with a soft top in khaki. In turn, the interior of the car was trimmed with brown leather.

After restoration, the car was presented in 1995 in the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and became the best in the category “American classic 16-cylinder cars of 1930-1937”. This model was in the Benach collection until 2017, when it was bought by the current owner, who carefully looked after it.

As noted by the current owner, the vehicle is in excellent condition. As for the performance of the 7.4-liter V16 power unit, it is 165 hp.

In addition, some time ago it was noted that a unique Mirage GT supercar from the Gemballa tuning studio is being sold. It should be emphasized that a total of 25 such cars were produced. The car is equipped with a 5.7-liter V10 engine.
