Base Wagon
Sale Price
2 July 2022
Sold Date
Lot Number
Unrestored Original
Auction House
Chassis number 1G6DV8EP5E0174275. Mocha Steel over black leather. 376-ci/6.2-l/556hp supercharged LSA V-8, 6-speed manual, black wheels, Bridgestone Potenza tires, sunroof delete, tinted windows.

Evaluation: From the Bryan Frank collection. Final year CTS-V wagon with 59,000 miles. Represented as one of one as equipped, and one of two in this color. Recently detailed and other than a small rock chip on the windshield, there aren’t any real signs of use. CARFAX Report shows damage to front in 2017, but there are no signs of damage or repair.

Bottom Line: It’s hard not to love a fast wagon, especially when it’s brown and has a manual transmission. These Caddies are also serious performers, with 0-60 in about 4 seconds, advanced Magneride suspension, and big Brembo brakes. Only about 500 CTS-V wagons got a 6-speed before production ended in 2014, and they’ve been desirable enthusiast cars since they rolled out of the factory. They simply never got cheap, and they’ve been selling near or above their original MSRP almost no matter the condition. This result in Vegas seems like a lot for a car with miles and a minor accident that blemishes its history, but the same CTS-V sold for $99,000 at Kissimmee back in January, so in buyers’ eyes its rare combination of options is more important.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
