Cadillac Cabriolet de Ville by Franay, from the well known series by the paint manufacturer. The Cadillac site says 1938, but the publication elsewhere is actually marked 1936. Did GM take the design of the front mudguards for 1938 - the all new Cadillac - from this design by Franay, or, is the date out, and is this just a body on the chassis and mudguards by GM in 1938?

The chassis is 1936, the built-up will be in 1938 - I have some similar works in this style ..., ... rebuilt a few years after first delivery ...,

Why does this RHD car need two chauffeurs? Anyway, they have gone for a walk/ciggie.
