Cadillac Sedan Series 75, Green, for sale in Troy, Michigan, for $18,950.
1936 Cadillac Series 7519S 96,517 Miles Unusual Dark Green Color (Same owner for the last 30 years) The Series 70 (models 70 and 75) was one of Cadillac's full-size V8-powered cars produced from the 1930s through 1970s. It replaced the 1935 355-D as the company's mainstream car just as the much less expensive Series 60 was introduced. Like the smaller car, the Series 70 was powered by the new 322 in Monobloc V8, though the bigger cars got the larger 346 in (5.7 L) engine. This 135 hp (101 kW) engine was both less expensive and more powerful, and the stylish body by Fleetwood should have made the Series 70 an instant hit. However, the high price ($2,500 and up) limited its appeal in the depression era. 5,248 were sold for 1936. (from Wikipedia) This is an excellent opportunity to invest in a very cool piece of American automobile history at the best price you will ever see for a complete, drivable, functioning vehicle.

The owners of The Green Goddess: The first of its four owners was a Mr. Taylor of Cambridge, Ontario, whose family members maintained ownership from 1936 through 1968. In 1968 a college fraternity became the second owner, and they repainted the car with their color of “fraternity grey” to match their fraternal athletic and scholastic “colors”. This fraternity kept the car well maintained and serviced using it extensively in public and collegiate functions until they sold it in 1978 to Mr. William Halpenny, a graduate alumnus of their fraternity. Mr. and Mrs. William Halpenny of Cambridge Ontario were leading Canadian sales persons for “Calphalon Brand Cookware” who took an active interest in maintaining, upgrading and using their classic auto. In 1978 they restored the auto’s paintwork to its “original” forest green color (please note that the data plate on the car shows not a code, but the stamp \"SPECIAL\"although of 12 color choices, 4 were green!). In 1981, after three years of ownership, they sold their 1936 five passenger touring sedan to John Honhart of Waterford, Michigan, who became the fourth and current owner of the car. The Halpennys made the sale in order to finance the purchase of another classic car, a 1975 Oldsmobile Toronado. John and Dottie Honhart of Waterford, Michigan, christened the car “The Green Goddess” in recognition of what to them was its classic beauty and quality. The Green Goddess has been taken for 55 miles per hour highway and freeway drives all in the State of Michigan. When time permits they, as owners, will take The Green Goddess on group driving trips and outings. … This is a Canadian-built car produced by the Cadillac Motor Company at their Walkerville, Ontario, Canada manufacturing facility, and at its original invoice price of $2,185.00 was five times the original invoice price of an ordinary working man’s personal car, such as a 1936 Ford Model 68 2-Door Cabriolet. For five consecutive years (1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940) Cadillac produced the same near-identical 346 cubic inch engine cars, all five year’s models being virtually alike except for small changes in the grilles, trim, moldings, etc. World War II ended domestic auto production from 1941 through 1945. Pre-war cars were not built to handle the extra years of use and were hard-hit by wear, tear, and lack of repair, and most 1936 Cadillacs were demobilized, stripped, parted out, melted. The survivors became the fewest and rarest of the 1936 through 1940 generation of Cadillacs.
