Gateway Classic Cars is excited to offer this extraordinary piece of automotive history, a 1914 Cadillac, to our Philadelphia located in West Deptford, NJ! The 1914 Cadillac is the last and largest of the Model 30 Cadillacs which began in 1909. This 103-year old automobile, serial number 99058, is quite authentic and fully functional! According to the owner, the four-cylinder, 365 CID engine has never been apart and many of the parts are original including the muffler! The horsepower is listed as 40-50 hp which is considerable for any car of the day, but quite impressive from a car with a four-cylinder engine! It is believed that the car has just over 9,000 miles since new! The cylinders are cast individually with individual heads and copper water jackets. The lubricating system, designed and improved by Cadillac, is the same one used on all four-cylinder Cadillacs from 1905! This Cadillac is a special high compression “H” model which uses a unique carburetor and caps on the heads to increase compression! The engine is unmolested including the water cooling on the carburetor.
Historically, these cars have had problems with cracked heads. These have no cracks! All Model 30s have problems with connecting rod bolt breakage, this car has had those replaced by high strength bolts by Steve Bono of M&S Restoration in Bouckville, NY! All connecting rod bearings were hand scraped and adjusted. The clutch and water pump have been rebuilt! The radiator has been cleaned and filled with Evans® Coolant, there are no leaks! This is a difficult statement to make for any brass-era car!
1913 and 1914 Cadillacs are very similar, but differ in two major respects, the fuel feed and the rear end. The 1913 has the gas tank as part of the cowl with gravity feed which can be quite the challenge to clean! This 1914 Cadillac has the gas tank in the rear with pressurized feed to the carburetor. The gas tank on this car was removed, all solder removed and replaced with higher temperature, modern solder, sealed with Renu® high temperature sealer and repainted! Everything on this car works well and its starts easily! The two-speed rear end makes this car special as it has two ratios, 3.66 (low speed) and 2.5 to 1 (high speed).
