THE CADILLAC

Always a high-quality automobile, Cadillac led the industry in innovative concepts since the company's founding in 1902 by the "Master of Precision" Henry Martyn Leland. The make pioneered electric starting and lighting in 1912, and pushed the envelope further in 1915 with the first mass-produced V-8 engine. Designed by D. McCall White, a Scottish-born engineer, the L-head engine used two cast-iron blocks with integral heads, mounted on an aluminum-copper alloy crankcase. With the banks of cylinders directly opposite one another, it used Leland's preferred fork-and-blade connecting rods.

The first left-hand drive Cadillac, the 1915 Type 51, had a chassis similar to its predecessor four-cylinder models, with platform-type leaf spring rear suspension. The period from 1915 to 1918 saw refinement of the engine through manifold redesign and lighter pistons. The chassis was successively strengthened and lengthened, and the standard equipment tire pump was moved from the engine to the transmission in 1916. For 1918, detachable cylinder heads were finally adopted, and the transmission was redesigned.

Cadillac introduced the Type 57 in 1918, and carried it over to 1919 with minimal changes. Twelve body styles were available on two wheelbases. The 57 remained in production from August 1917 to December 1919, 29 months in all, during which sales of the model surpassed 45,000 cars.
