A 1918 Cadillac Type 57 that earned its place in history during World War I received an honor of its own today. It is the fourth vehicle added to the Historic Vehicle Association’s new National Historic Vehicle Register and U.S. Department of the Interior Historic American Engineering Record.
The HVA and Cadillac announced the listing – which will be archived in the Library of Congress – today.
The car’s story was almost forgotten. But the efforts of the current owner and the HVA ensure future generations can learn about it – and about Cadillac’s 100-year history of mass-producing V-8 engines.
