1907 Cadillac Model K Racing Success

Frederick Bennett had bigger plans for the 1907 Cadillac Model K. Two of the cars that had participated in the contest were repainted and returned to stock, but the third Cadillac was locked away in the Royal Automobile Club garage immediately after the contest. The following June, that car was entered in an RACsponsored run, conducted in conjunction with the Scottish Automobile Club trial.

"The route," according to Hendry, "led from London to Glasgow, then in the [Scottish Automobile Club] section for 772 miles on the Scottish Highland roads, back through the lake country, Welsh border district and Cotswolds to Brooklands, finishing with 200 miles at the [Brooklands] motordrome. It included twentytwo miles of hill climbs and eleven timed hills, the total distance being 2,200 miles over a period of fifteen days."

Of course, there was a certain amount of risk in this undertaking, for should the Cadillac perform poorly or fail to complete the testthe luster of the Dewar Award would have been severely tarnished. But there was no need to worry, for the little Cadillac completed the trial at the top of its class.

By the time this award was made, the onecylinder Cadillac had entered its final year of production, having progressed through an alphabet of models: A, B, C, E, F, K, M, S, and T. From the day of its introduction in January 1903, the Cadillac had found immediate public acceptance, ranking that year as the thirdbestselling automobile in America.

By 1904, it had nudged Ford aside to take over second place, behind Oldsmobile, a position it retained for 1905. Between 1903 and 1908, Cadillac produced approximately 16,000 singlecylinder Cadillacs, several hundred of which still exist worldwide in the hands of enthusiastic collectors.

 

But of course, several years before it was awarded the Dewar Trophy, Cadillac had invaded the luxury market again employing the principle of interchangeable parts. By 1908, the fourcylinder cars came in two sizes, with engines displacing 226.2 and 300.7 cubic inches, respectively. Prices ranged from $2,000 to $3,600, and although Cadillac still offered the onecylinder cars on which its reputation celine bag online had been built, they would be phased out by year's end.
