A pair of custom built Cadillacs built by Maurice Schwartz. The top photo depicts the a four door limousine built for for shoe magnate Harry Karl as a present for his wife, movie star Marie McDonald. The lower photo is cowboy star Gene Autry's six door limousine, similar to 1946 six door woodie built earlier for a movie studio.
The 1937 Cord 812 once owned by Tom Mix, the 1930s cowboy movie star. The actor was killed at the wheel of the supercharged Cord in October 1940; the car was repaired after the crash and restored in 2010. Beyond its repute as a so-called death car, Mix’s Cord has distinctive custom features, including an external-mount spare tire.
