Jay Leno's 100-Year-Old Caddy

Classic Cars

The Denim Chin waxes lyrical about his original, unrestored 1918 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria.

From its "fat-man wheel" to its original interior, there is plenty to admire about this 1918 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria. As always on Jay Leno's Garage, the Denim Chin serves up a platter of interesting factoids about his car, which has been beautifully maintained for almost 100 years yet remains almost completely unrestored. Still intact on the vintage Caddy are the original paint and wood-spoke wheels, and the Type 57 seems to drive just as well today as it would have done during the First World War era.
