1927 Cadillac Notes

  • The 1927 Cadillac Series 314 was a continuation of 1926 models.
  • Some new body styles introduced August, 1926.
  • Calendar year sales: (1927) 8599.
  • Calendar year production: (1927) 8599.
  • Model two year sales: 50619 (Aug. '25 through Sep. '27).
  • Model two year production: 50619 (Aug. '25 through Sep. '27).
  • Lawrence P. Fisher was president
  • Ernest W. Seaholm was chief engineer
  • H. M. Stephens was general sales manager
  • "Fifty body styles and types—Five hundred color and upholstery combinations" was Cadillac's catch phrase for their new program to individualize the motor car. Change was constant; everything was tried; and pilot models were sold but not cataloged. The catalog was but a starting point—the customer could pick almost any combination of bits and pieces and have a unique motor car without the expense of a full custom. Authenticity of surviving cars may be in question because of the multitude of possible variations. In the final analysis; if it has a vertical starter motor, it's most likely a 314.
