1940 Cadillac Series 75 Brunn Towncar
Chassis Number: 3320424
It was December 1939, almost 75 years ago, when wealthy Ohio industrialist Elroy J. Kulas placed his order for the last custom-built Brunn Town Car. This was the end of an era. The Brunn Company had a reputation for unparalleled quality. It is beautifully crafted with a precision that has not been diminished by the decades since new. Unlike other custom bodies fitted to a chassis provided by a major manufacturer, this Brunn design includes a special cowl and all aluminum bodywork. Riding on the 141", new-for-1938 Series 75 Chassis and powered by the war-proven 346 cubic inch L-head V-8, this is not only a rare and striking automobile, it is a joy to drive. Utterly reliable and smooth as silk on brand new, period correct tires. The car has documented ownership and has been winning awards for nearly 50 years.1990 CCCA Annual Meeting in Palm Beach 100 points earned, participated in 2005 the Pebble Beach Concours inaugural 1600 mile Tour d'Elegance from Seattle to Monterey, 2008 People's Choice Award at the CCCA Grand Experience at Hickory Corners, Michigan. Style, history, rarity all in one very special, lovingly preserved, original car that you could actually drive home today, this just might be the one that has it all!
