Theyear’s new styling was beautifully rendered on the Cadillac long-wheelbase models which had extra-long rear fenders and an extended “greenhouse” with a formal, high-headroom look. Fleetwood wreath and crest emblems decorated the hood and the trunk and there were Fleetwood block letters at the right side of the deck lid. A simple horizontal body rub molding, lengthened to fit the elongated sheetmetal, trimmed the sides of these elegant machines. Standard equipment included all found in DeVilles plus Automatic Level Control; air-conditioning; carpeted fold-down foot rests and 8.20 x 15, four-ply 8PR black tires.
NOTE: The commercial chassis was built on a 156 inch wheelbase and was provided to professional car builders for the manufacture of hearses and ambulances, etc.
