Event Description

When Carroll Shelby was unwillingly tasked with turning a “Secretary’s Car” into one of the most prolific muscle cars of all time, he turned to one man – Chuck Cantwell.

Join us as we welcome Chuck back to The Simeone on November 18th at 12:00 for a one time only special appearance. This is your opportunity to learn first-hand the real history of the Shelby Mustang from the man behind the machine. Take part in a wide ranging discussion on the development of the car built to beat Chevy’s Corvette.

Along for the ride will be co-author Greg Kolasa. Greg is considered to be one of the foremost experts on Shelby and the Registrar of ‘60s Ford GT40 and the ’60s Hertz Shelby Mustangs.

“Shelby Mustang GT350: My Years Designing, Testing and Racing Carroll’s Legendary Mustangs” examines the history making moments that led to the development and execution of one the most iconic sports cars of all time.

Tickets are free with regular admission. The program begins sharply at noon and will feature both a discussion and book signing. Books will be available on site for purchase and signing.

  1931 Cadillac 355A

Convertible Coupe     

by Fleetwood         

1930s elegance abounds with this fine 1931 Cadillac 355A Convertible Coupe. This CCCA Premier

Award-winning example has been fully restored to its original colors of

Viceroy Maroon over black

fenders and chassis, as indicated

on the original build sheet. It is

finished to a high standard and remains in excellent condition

today. It is a lovely machine with

fine quality paintwork and detailing. Of the eleven standard body styles available, the Convertible Coupe

by Fleetwood ranks among the

most desirable on the 355 chassis. Its sporting, elegant appearance

recalls carefree playboys enjoying the trappings of their wealth as the

roaring twenties came to a close. The convertible coupe combined the

style and open air experience of

the roadster, but with the

additional comfort provided by

roll up side windows and a more substantial folding roof and more luxurious trim. As with most

355-series Cadillacs, our example

is well-equipped with dual

sidemount spares topped with

Cadillac mirrors, a mesh radiator

stone guard, Goddess mascot

and a pair of Senior Trippe Light driving lamps. While the

restoration is approaching two decades old, the exterior

cosmetics remain very strong,

and this example presents very

well indeed.

Offered for $169,500
