1918 Cadillac Type 57

1918 Cadillac type 57 Town Car Limousine, with Coachwork body by Brewster & Co. New York (Body #1993)

Cadillac was one of the first automakers to introduce a Limousine. From 1914 on, Luxurious enclosed cars were a Cadillac Hallmark and the Limousine was the most expensive model Cadillac offered.

America’s foremost carriage maker was Brewster, founded by James Brewster, a descendant of Elder William Brewster, who came to Plymouth Colony on the Mayflower in 1620. Brewster opened its first Carriage-building factory in Connecticut in 1810. In 1827, a branch factory was opening in New York City and by 1848 there were three Brewster Coachworks in New York. Eventually son Henry Brewster’s Company branched out into the automotive coach building trade.

Introduced in 1914 on the Type 51 L-Head V8 Engine was the first The Cadillac V8 and by 1915 it was the standard engine for Cadillac models.
