[see also 1906]

Single-cylinder Cadillac Model M chassis
basically unchanged from the previous year;
it cost $800 and included the dash and hood]



Model K

Basically unchanged frfm 1906, the 1907 single-cylinder Model K runabout and Model M Victoria retained their distinctive and
gracious charm of the previous year; only the "box" shape of the Gray and Davis brass side lamps enable the casual observer
to distinguish between the two years;  base price of the runabout was $800, while the Victoria light touring sold for $950

The standard color for all the single-cylinder models in 1907
was Brewster green upper with red lower; black pinstriping highlighted the wheels and lower body.

New for 1907 was this Model M light touring car with so-called "straight-line" body
underscored by the molding through the rear, side-entrance door and the base molding
of the front and rear seats; this model cost $950

On January 16, 1907, the automobile magazine, Horseless Age, listed the year's new models as  "Cadillac Model M
with new, Straight-Line (tonneau) body";  all single-cylinder bodies were interchangeable on the same chassis

Left and center:  this old photo from the Croger Photo Company of Danville, IL, identifies
the car as a Cadillac 1904-05, whereas in fact it depicts the Model M light touring car for 1907





As may be seen from the preceding 7 rows, there are quite a few survivors despite the car's age

The first fully-enclosed Cadillac built in any numbers was this single-cylinder Model M coupe, derived
directly from the prototype commissioned  by Henry Leland, for himself, just over a year earlier,
from the Detroit coach builders, Seavers and Erdman; it proved a very popular model among
doctors and traveling salesmen; at $1200, it was the most expensive of the one-lungers

The 1907 Model M delivery van remained
basically unchanged from the previous year;
priced at $950 it was the favorite of Detroit tradespeople

Cadillac four-cylinder Models G & H

New for 1907 were the Model G runabout and touring car,  each priced at $2000; the runabout resembled closely its counterpart Model H
of the previous year; it  received new, downward sweeping rear fenders; the Model G touring car was an all-new design with a straight-line
body resembling the four-cylinder Model D of 1905; body and running gear of both cars were finished in two shades of the
ever popular Brewster green, the lighter tint being applied to the lower body; the latter was also highlighted with white pinstriping; 
Gray and Davis brass lamps continued to be offered at extra cost on both models; the body of the lamp was now cube shaped instead of cylindrical

Models G, H and L were powered by the tried
and tested four-cylinder motor of 1905.  Its  4½" bore
and  5" stroke turned out a hefty thirty horsepower




Cadillac four-cylinder Model H

The touring car (left) was made less ornate around the rear body and side entrance doors; it was priced at $2500, that is $1250 less than the
Model L touring car of the previous year; optionally available for an extra $150 was Cadillac's cape cart top; the all new Model H limousine
on the right quite clearly was a toned-down version of the highly ornate Model L limousine of 1906; the quarter windows were lengthened, which 
- while diminishing somewhat the privacy of the rear compartment occupants -  gave the heavy limousine a more balanced appearance; like the
Model G, above, body and running gear of  both cars were finished in two shades of  Brewster green; white pinstriping was applied only to the
lower body; this year the price was down  by $1400 to a more affordable (in 1907?) $3600;  brass lamps remained optional items at extra cost


06ModHtrg.jpg (43174 bytes)
At $2500 (without the brass lamps!) the new
Model H touring car was ultra-elegant


06ModLlimo.jpg (40438 bytes)
Cadillac's first semi-enclosed limousine, forebear of the renowned "Series 75",
at $5000 (FOB Detroit), the big limousine probably found few buyers
