The five-passenger touring car was one of seven different coachwork options offered, and the 366-cubic-inch L-head inline-four developed 40–50 hp, capable of propelling the Model 30 to freeway speeds.Per a factory build log, this beautiful Model 30 was dispatched in mid-October 1913 to its dealer of record, the Cadillac Auto Company of Denver, Colorado. According to a registration on file, the touring car was purchased by the renowned William Harrah collection in 1965 and was subsequently refurbished by the museum. The restored Cadillac was then displayed at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada, for nearly two decades before being sold in 1984 to Glen Hickman of Dallas, Texas.Mr. Hickman retained possession for fifteen years, ultimately selling the Cadillac in 1998 to Robert Gibson of Ponca City, Oklahoma, who sold the car a year later to respected marque collector Ron Blissit of Norman, Oklahoma. Mr. Blissit conducted a frame-up restoration that comprehensively addressed every mechanical and cosmetic component, all the while prioritizing originality, authentic presentation, and drivability.After completing restoration in 2001, the Cadillac was exhibited at numerous shows over the following two years, routinely winning awards in the process. In addition to claiming two Best of Show awards at Cadillac-LaSalle Club national meets, the Model 30 won its class at the 2002 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and won class awards at the Meadow Brook and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance later that year. The exhibition acclaim was rounded out with awards at AACA and VMCCA events, as well as the Best Cadillac award at the 2002 Grand National Cadillac-LaSalle Meeting.After passing to Bob Poe of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Cadillac was sold to Jim Bradley in 2004, and he has dutifully maintained the car while displaying it in his private museum. Recently serviced and detailed by RM Auto Restoration, the Model 30 remains in show-worthy condition and is assured by the consignor to be well prepared for both exhibition and touring events. The remarkably authentic Cadillac is documented with a factory build log, prior registrations, and a history by the consignor, and it would make a nuanced complement to any marque collection or gathering of antique motor cars.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at
