Cars of the GM Heritage Center: An Insider’s Look

1933 Cadillac 355C V8
The 8-cylinder 355 was only manufactured from 1931–35. The first in the series was the 355A for the 1931 model year, followed by the 355B in 1932, and then this 355C of 1933. Changes from the previous two versions were mostly cosmetic, including new fender and bumper treatments. That said, the C also received individually-controlled pivoting side vent windows in the front and rear — new for the time. This car also has a ride control system that allows the driver to adjust the suspension by manually changing the rebound of the shock absorbers.

  1. Great rendition — especially of the Cadillacs. When will we ever see another Cadillac to rival those shown here? We need a new icon without worrying about fuel efficiency and “organic” greenness.

  2. A bright red Cadillac convertible was my ideal car when I was a kid and it still is. They don’t make such gorgeous cars any longer.
