Model history

In January 1934, Cadillac introduced the successor to the 355 Series, these were the Series 10, 20 and 30.

Compared to the previous models of the series, the Series 10, 20 and 30 had been thoroughly revised. They had an X-shaped frame and a new front axle ("knee-action") with coil springs and telescopic shock absorbers, plus a transverse stabilizer on the rear axle. They were fitted with a 5.8-litre V8 which produced 120 hp. New were the bodies with bigger windows and stronger than before angled windshields. They were also fitted with the Fisher bodies. The bodied featured a "Turret Top" all-steel roof.

The Series 10 was offered in six different body styles (coupes, sedans and convertibles), all with a wheelbase of 325.1 inches and with bodies made by Fisher Body. The Series 20 was available in seven different body styles (including an four-door tourer) on a wheelbase of 345.4 cm. The Series 30 (with a longer wheelbase of 370.8 cm) was available in more than forty different body styles all which were made by Fleetwood. They had a V-shaped arrow-shaped windshield and fitted with a V12 or V16 engine. The price ranged from $ 2,395 for the two-seater Series 10 Coupe up to $5595 for the Series 30 Town Convertible.

The 1935 models differ only in minor details from the previous versions, but the V8 was now able to produce 130hp. The model range also changed little, after a year, a longer version with special bodies (health and hearse) was also added. It's wheelbase was now at 160 inches (406.4 cm).

In two years, a total of 8318 cars were made from the Series 10, 20 and 30. In 1936 the Series 60 replaced the Series 10, 20 and 30.
