Series 75 Cadillac Models & History 1950

Anall-new postwar body, which conformed to the other lines for the first time since 1941, was introduced on the luxury-class series models this year. It featured six-window styling and a “high-headroom” limousine type appearance. Jump seats were used in the seven-passenger sedan and the Imperial limousine. Surprisingly, Hydra-Matic drive was optional, but power windows were standard equipment.


  • Motor serial numbers 507500000 to 507510387 were used on 1950 Series 75 Fleetwood models.
