The 1928 Custom Cadillac LS3 Limousine: An Automotive Masterpiece For The Elite
The Dunsmuirs’ bespoke aluminum seven-passenger limo, which cost a king’s ransom and drove them to tea and other social occasions in the capital of British Columbia, has had a colorful life. When World War II broke out, the huge limousine was refurbished for use as an ambulance. To make room for a stretcher inside, one of the door jambs was removed.
When the old limo was returned to the Nanaimo Colliery Company, the Dunsmuir family no longer needed it. It was turned over to Percy T. Fallick, the driver. The car ended up in a junkyard in Prince George with the engine in the back seat. The vintage limo was saved by a local enthusiast, who had the engine restored.
The car ended up in the hands of one of Vancouver’s most colorful figures of the 1960s. George Patey, a Vancouver Show Business executive, rose to prominence after buying the bricks from the Chicago garage where the St. Valentine’s Day massacre took place.
1928 Custom Cadillac LS3 Limo Resembles 1926 Cadillac Series 314
Cadillac’s 314 series model replaced the old V-63 model in August 1925. Although classed as a 1926 model, it was still being upgraded in 1926. In August, when new bodies were launched to coincide with the 1927 model year, the change was back in the air. The Standard series included a Type 7000 two-seat sports coupe and a 7040 five-seat sports sedan. The Custom range now includes a Type 7020 convertible coupe and a double-cowled 1164-B sports phaeton.
According to Cadillac production records, this attractive sports coupe was delivered in Atlanta, Georgia on August 3, 1926, to Dr. James Paullin, who took possession of it on October 20, 1926. The body color was Duco Adjutant Gray with a cream Cadillac Stripe.
The interior is in magenta pleated and buttoned mohair. In terms of decoration, the dashboard is a work of art. It is located in the center of the instrument panel and features four semi-circular gauges in the center, flanked by a drum speedometer on the left and a Waltham clock on the right. The whole is adorned with intricate filigrees. The vehicle has only 76,000 miles on the clock. Engine temperature is monitored by a dog-bone MotoMeter in the radiator cap. This sports coupe design is reminiscent of Cadillac’s original Coupe de Ville, which debuted in 1949.
A Look Back Through the Custom 1928 Cadillac LS3 Limousine and Its Recent Cost
The family of coal baron Robert Dunsmuir restored the 1928 Cadillac Custom Imperial Suburban Limousine, which they bought from Begg Motors in Victoria for $6,904.
The refurbished limo has blue paint with black fenders and a roof. Royal blue fabric and soft royal blue carpet are used to decorate the interior. It was one of the most opulent cars of the time, with folding rear seats for extra passengers, silk blinds, and a curved separation window and windscreen for added ventilation. The only original piece Mackie has yet to find is the Stentor telephone, which the passengers used to direct the driver. Today, the limo is estimated at $140,000.
