The 1940s marked a magical decade for Cadillac, as each car produced from 1940 to 1949 stood out in its own way. With handsome styling every year, these cars remain highly sought after. Cadillacs of this era held a leading position in performance among American cars.
The 1940-42 designs skillfully blended classic Cadillac cues from the 1930s with a more modern touch. Truly living up to their motto “The Standard of the World,” Cadillacs from this era exuded elegance and sophistication.
The Series 60 Specials of 1938, designed by Fleetwood, continued their success in the 1939 and 1940 models, which retained the same design with updated front-end sheet metal and headlights, maintaining their well-appointed and elegant appeal, now crafted by Fisher Body.
