1930s Gangster V16 Barn Find

1930s Gangster V16 Barn Find

This is not your normal barn find. Its a 1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine, Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission. It is custom built with bulletproof glass (more like 30mm thick glass), reinforced panels and  drilled gun ports in front, side and back windows.

As you can see in the video clip it is a preserved time capsule with names scribbled on the body work. The guy filming the car says its smells like the 1930s and its in deteriorated state needing a full restoration.

We can only imagine what this car has seen and moreover who it belonged to. Our guess is a very active gangster from all the bullet shots you can see on the windows.
