Cadillac Diecast Models

In 1901, Henry Ford formed his second company, the Henry Ford Company, to produce automobiles. He clashed with his investors over business decisions and left the company with the Ford name in 1902. Ford’s investors, looking to liquidate the assets of the company, brought in Henry Leland of Leland and Faulconer Manufacturing.  Leland instead persuaded the investors to continue manufacturing automobiles using Leland’s engine design. The Cadillac Automobile Company was established on August, 22 1902. Cadillac’s first cars were the Runabout and Tonneau completed that same year.

The Cadillac Automobile Company officially merged with Leland and Faulconer Manufacturing in 1905 forming the Cadillac Motor Company. Cadillac was purchased by General Motors in 1909, becoming GM’s luxury arm.

Cadillac developed many firsts in the industry including, the V16 engine, the synchro mesh manual transmission, all steel roof, shatter resistant glass and first mass produced automatic transmission.

Diecast models are designed as adult collectibles. Manufacturers recommended ages are 8 years to adult. Models may contain small parts - NOT for children under the age of 3 years!
