Compared to its predecessor, the exterior of the 1929 Cadillac was little changed. The parking lamps were moved from the cowl to the tops of the fenders, which was a subtle modification that provided a bit sportier look. Significant changes took place under the sheet metal, however, with the most important of these being a new “clash-less” Synchro-Mesh Silent-Shift transmission, which negated the need for double-clutching and enabled much smoother gear selection. New mechanical four-wheel brakes required considerably less pedal pressure than earlier models, and the shatterproof Security Plate glass became standard in all windows. The suspension system featured new double-acting Delco shock absorbers, and the fully adjustable seats became standard.

This Fisher-bodied 1929 Cadillac Convertible Coupe is finished green with a black belt line and fenders with a tan convertible top. The paint has developed a charming patina over the years. The Cadillac rides on wood spoke wheels wrapped with Firestone tires. The exterior features a driver’s side wiper, spotlight, and sideview mirror; a rumble seat, two rear mounted spares, and a golf club door on the passenger side round out the exterior. The interior bench seat and door panels are trimmed in black leather and the dashboard features the typical instrumentation from the era in addition to a Jaeger clock.
