1926→1927 Cadillac Series 314

Called the ‘new nintey degree Cadillac’ the Series 314 had an all-new V8 engine with an engine displacement of 314 cu. in. At the time Cadillac never really gave this model a proper name and simply referred to all their cars as Cadillac.

At the time Cadillac advertised “Fifty body styles and types – Five hundred color and upholstery combinations.” The large array of available options meant that no two cars were a like.

Throughout a production that lasted from Aug 1925 until September 1927, 50,000 cars were produced.
