I did some further research on this one, as mentioned here: /vehicle_377880-Chrysler-Eight-CD-1931.html , I thought it might be a 1930 or 1931. It´s not a 1931 as I claimed above, the bodystyle is a little different and the toolboxes are gone, also the 1931 models have a single bumper.
Some sources call this body Club Sedan, but most will name them Town Sedan. This is also the name used in adverts.

I also see that it´s now been altered to Series 355. This denomination is nowhere to be found in Cadillac sales literature of the period, not even in the internal dealer sales material:

It seems we have to go to the workshop manual to find this very internal designation, here´s a sample from the 1930 V16 Service Information:

[Image: 290010-Cadillac_V-16_1_1.jpg]

The number refers to the engine size 355 cu in, 452 cu in etc.

So this car would be a 1930 Cadillac V8 Town Sedan [353], 353 is the closest we get to a chassiscode for these. Bodystyle is 30152.

Based on your nice research, will change the listing.

(One heck of a beautiful period sedan, BTW!)

It is indeed a beautiful car.

But can someone please explain why the designation "Series 353" is put as modelname?

However common it is on websearches or in various modern literature, I suppose for practical reasons since it´s easy to categorize by it, it´s very difficult to find in Cadillac or LaSalle publications from the period. Outside Cadillac management and the workshop literature it seems to have been more or less unknown.
