Is Al Capone’s bulletproof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan really worth $1M? – Jeff Peek @Hagerty

Is Al Capone’s bulletproof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan really worth $1M? – Jeff Peek @Hagerty

Advertisements

Al Capone had a big ego and an equally big car. He never lost the ego; the car, on the other hand, was sold four years after he bought it. There are many places where a bulletproof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan would be useful, but federal prison is not one of them.

Capone—the Chicago mobster and bootlegger known as Public Enemy #1—was convicted of tax evasion in 1931 and sentenced to 11 years in federal prison. He was released eight years later, debilitated and suffering from neurosyphilis. On January 25, 1947, the 48-year-old Capone died of cardiac arrest after suffering a stroke.

Capone’s armor-plated Caddy was long gone by then, purchased first by a couple who hoped to capitalize on his fame. It later ended up in a string of museums for the same reason.

Now it could be yours. The Capone Cadillac is being offered for $1 million by Celebrity Cars Las Vegas. The car (VIN #306449) was once owned by legendary collector John O’Quinn, and it was sold by his estate for $341,000 at RM Sotheby’s St. John’s sale in 2012.

“The history is certainly fascinating, but Al Capone is a controversial figure, and the market spoke in 2012 with its last auction appearance,” says Hagerty valuation editor Andrew Newton. “The car doesn’t appear to have had major work since then, so it’s hard to argue it’s worth a lot more than it sold for eight years ago.”

If you believe it’s worth every bit of that $1M, however, a quick glance at the website reveals that financing is available. With $1000 down and an interest rate of 5 percent for 5 years, your estimated monthly payment would be $18,852.36. Quite a hefty sum, to be sure, but the car’s story is priceless.

Vehicle Description

For Sale: 1924 Maxwell Sport Touring in Macedonia, Ohio

Handsome older restoration with period-correct California top and sliding glass windows. Runs and drives quite well, comfortable leather interior, freshly rebuilt brakes. Ready for early tours and casual shows.

The single sidemount and cowl lights make this 1924 Maxwell a sport touring, one of the more popular models and surprisingly stylish for a low-cost car. But what makes this one really stand apart is that unusual California-style top with sliding glass windows. Looking it over, it appears to have been installed in-period given the vintage-looking details such as the beveled glass, brass hardware, and interesting window shades in the rear. It was cleverly integrated with the standard touring body and looks very much a part of the original design, including wind wings that fold flat and seal up against the sliding windows. The car spent the entirety of its life in California and came to Ohio about 10 years ago with a collector with a large, eclectic collection and this was his first old car. He bought it in its current condition and while it’s not 100% authentic, someone obviously spent quite a bit of money on the restoration. The dark green bodywork is quite nicely done and holding up well and has just the right amount of patina, offering a soft shine that seems entirely right on the 95-year-old Maxwell. Accessory spotlights are bolted onto the windshield hinge and give the modest Maxwell a big car look. The radiator shell, bumpers, and a few other details are chrome instead of nickel, offering lower maintenance and a dressed-up look. A trunk out back makes it a bit practical, too. It’s a substantial-looking car that looks far more expensive than it is.

This 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT Has Only 668 miles – Shane McGlaun @FordAuthority

Sometimes if you peruse eBay, you can find some very cool cars, like this pristine 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT. Only one car sat above the Cobra in the 1993 Ford Mustang line, and that was the incredibly rare 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R. The owner of the 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT seen here bought the car brand new, and then put it on jack stands in a garage.

Over its lifetime the Cobra has only driven 668 miles. The owner said that the car was just like brand new and still smells like a new car and rolls on its factory tires. The only thing that has been changed over the years is the factory battery.
