The car also comes with much documentation and a known ownership since 1970. It has been known since the early 70s as the Eddie Cantor car and it is very likely that the entertainer was the original owner.

Introduced in early 1930 the first series Cadillac V-16 firmly positioned General Motors top brand at the pinnacle of the luxury automobile market. Cadillac made no secret of its ambitions sending a Salon of catalog custom bodied examples on a tour of Europe where they successfully took orders in competition with European luxury marques like Rolls-Royce Hispano-Suiza and Isotta Fraschini. The coachwork selection offered on the V16 chassis was vast and the entire automobile from the appearance of the overhead valve 452 cubic inch engine to the selection of interior appointments and accessories was carefully thought out designed and effected in meticulous detail and quality. The earliest Cadillac V-16s were bodied by Fleetwood in Pennsylvania a well-established firm with a record of bodying prestigious marques in substantial volume following semi-custom manufacturing techniques which had been acquired by General Motors Fisher Body in 1925. In mid-1930 the Fleetwood Pennsylvania shop was closed and all Fleetwood body production moved to its Detroit factories now incorporating 1.5 million square feet but the earliest Cadillac V-16s with their Pennsylvania-built bodies are regarded by experienced collectors as the best built and trimmed built using superior materials and methods by long-term skilled hands. This 1930 Cadillac 452 V-16 All-Weather Phaeton Fleetwood style 4380 is one of those few highly regarded Pennsylvania-bodied V-16s. Its All-Weather Phaeton coachwork displays many of the attributes which distinguish the best of Fleetwood coachwork particularly the straight-through body line rollup windows and division and the distinctive vee-windshield that only the Fleetwood-built bodies employed. It was originally delivered to Cadillacs Los Angeles dealer Don Lee and has been authenticated as complete and as-built engine drivetrain and body on its original chassis. It also has its original Cadillac-supplied luggage trunk an item that rarely survives with its original chassis and body. Equipment includes a set of full chrome Buffalo wire wheels dual sidemounted spares with mirrors radiator stoneguard Pilot-Ray lights and Cadillac heron radiator mascot. It is subtly liveried in two shades of green accented by a contrasting green coachline a LeBaron-style hood sweep panel tan leather upholstery and light tan cloth top with tan piping matching the upholstery.
