In 1939 the Second World War almost completely halted production of the KR 35 Pionier, although limited production continued until at least 1942. In 1945 the Victoria factory’s production hall was severely damaged.
“Newly styled throughout with fresh, vigorous beauty, and a wealth of contemporary smartness roomier than ever—powered by an enlarged and refined V-lype, eight-cylinder engine- vastly improved in flexibility, handling ease, and security—Cadillac’s new models, here presented, easily lake precedence over everything that line cars have yet been.”
This is a citation from an official brochure of this Cadillac. It was a pleasure to work on this model.
