Type 57 automatic spring top
« on: July 02, 2020, 12:11:08 PM »
Cadillac Owners Manual wrote that early Type 57 were fitted with an automatic spring top. I wonder if any of these survived? Are there any photos or schemes of this device?

"If the car is fitted with an automatic spring top as used in the early Type 57 season, open the top rest clamps “B,” Fig, 11, and release the pins from the holes at “D.” Then stand behind the car as shown in Fig. 12, and push up and forward on the rear bow. The top should then assume the position shown in Fig. 13."
