Introduced in 1940, the Series 62 was initially meant to be a slight bump up from the Series 61, an entry-level offering by Cadillac. The Series 62 quickly gained the crowd's admiration, and its popularity opened the gates for Cadillac to introduce even more models, such as the Eldorado and Coupe de Ville. This specific fourth-generation Series 62 has reportedly been fully restored with 100% of its original parts and is currently up for sale.
For the fourth generation, Cadillac decided to introduce a low, sleek body to the Series 62. The front end received inverted gull wing front bumpers and Dagmar-style bumper guards, the rear bumper was redesigned, and the infamous wraparound windshield was inherited from the Eldorado. In 1955, even the sedan versions of the Cadillac Series 62 inherited the Florentine curved rear window. As seen on this vehicle, the most distinguishable features were the V-shaped badges placed on the car's front and rear ends. This example perfectly sports these unique features as it gleams in candy apple red. It also has a white soft top, matching the white wall tires, which the current owner reports to be new. The interior of this 1955 Cadillac Series 62 is an excellent example of a great restoration. Its red and white two-tone leather finish complements the exterior. Both front and rear receive a bench-style seat, and even its classic steering wheel matches the interior colors. Being a vehicle from the 50s, it's only natural for the cabin to inherit some of the chrome accents that are present on the exterior.
Powering the 1955 Cadillac Series 62 is a 331ci (5.4L) OHV V8 engine. This engine is widely known to be one of the greatest and long-lived engines of all time by General Motors and only ended production in 2010. In the case of this Series 62, its 331ci is paired with an automatic transmission.
