Cadillac Deville History 1962

Cadillac Deville Models & History 1962


The DeVille lineup was much more of a separate series this year and some historical sources list it as such, while others list it as a 6200 sub-series.
The new model for 1962 was a variation of the Town Sedan, introduced the previous season, with a new Style code and name.
It was now Body Style 6289D and referred to as the Park Avenue four-window sedan.
DeVilles were trimmed very similar to base 6200 models.
They had all of the same standard equipment plus Two-Way power seat and power windows.
The Style Number 6367E Biarritz convertible also featured power vent windows, white sidewall tires and a Six-Way power bench seat, although buyers could substitute bucket seats, in place of the last item, at no cost.
