Specs and history

- details above

The Cadillac Series 355 was manufactured by Cadillac from 1931 to 1935. They were 8-cylinder cars, sold in several models: a 2-door club coupe, a 2-door convertible, 4-door convertible, a 4-door sedan a 4-door town car and a 4-door limousine.

355A (1931)

The 1931 Series 355A was very similar to the Series 353 except it was longer and lower, had a longer hood with five hood ports, with matching doors in the cowl.[1][2] There was a modified coach sill with no compartments in the splash pan.[1][2] The battery and tool compartment were now under the front seat.[1][2] Floor boards were made of metal for the first time.[1][2] The instrument panel was oval with the same gauge groupings as in the Series 353. The Series 355 featured a radiator screen, a single bar bumper and dual horns.[1][2] The headlight diameter was reduced by one inch.[1][2] There was a new frame with divergent side rails.[1][2] The suspension springs now had metal covers.[1][2] The radiator was mounted lower in the frame and there was now a condenser tank for cooling operation.[1][2] The engine was the same 353 cu in (5.8 L) L-Head V8 as on the Series 353, thus the series designation no longer matched the displacement.[1][2] Engine horsepower was 95.[1][2] A five point engine suspension, similar to the V-16 was used.[1][2] An intake muffler was added and the distributor was mounted 1.5 in (38 mm) higher.[1][2] The fan was mounted lower to match the lower radiator.[1][2] Model year sales totaled 10,717.[1][2]

355B (1932)[

The 1932 Series 355B was even longer and lower, with an entirely restyled front assembly.[1][2] The roof line was lowered 1–3 in (25–76 mm).[1][2] The longer hood now had six hood ports.[1][2] The new front end styling included a flat grille built into the radiator shell, head and side lights of streamlined bullet shape and the elimination of the fender tie bar and monogram bar.[1][2] The trumpets of the dual horns projected through the headlight stanchions.[1][2] The headlight lenses were 9.5 in (241 mm) in diameter.[1][2] The dual taillights matched the headlights.

- [1][2] Super safe lighting featured three filament bulbs and four contour positions for degree and angle of illumination.[1][2] The front license plate was mounted on the bumper.[1][2] Runningboards curved to match the sweep of the front fenders and blended into the rear fenders.[1][2] The tail of the rear fenders blended into the fuel tank valence.[1][2] The trunk on the town sedan, town coupe and five-passenger convertible coupe was integral with the body.[1][2] The vision of the driver was improved by 30 percent as a result of the elimination of the outside visor and the construction of a 12 degree sloping windshield and corner posts.[1][2] There was a large ventilator on top of the cowl and none on the sides.[1][2] All separate body moldings were eliminated.[1][2] A three spoke steering wheel enabled an unobstructed view of the instrument cluster when in the straight ahead position.[1][2] The right side of the instrument panel was occupied by a "locker."[1][2] Engine horsepower increased to 115.[1][2] The deepening Great Depression helped sales plummet to 2,700.[1][2]
