On this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Jay takes viewers on a trip down memory lane in his 1918 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria. This vintage car is completely original and unrestored, meaning, everything on this car is just as it was in 1918. Known to be the car that launched the Cadillac brand, it was the first truly mass-produced V8 to hit the market. This was not an inexpensive car by any means, with a sticker price of around $4,000, which for 1918 was almost unheard of.
This car isn’t treated like a museum piece that is locked away and never driven. Jay uses it as his daily car for tooling around Los Angeles. It has a top speed of 65 miles per hour, but you really don’t want to push it that hard. It has a powerful engine that is capable of producing 70 horsepower at 2,400 RPM and is just a pleasurable car to use for a leisurely Sunday drive.
