The Series 63 was similar to the 61. It was available as a sedan
only and rode on the same wheelbase. By the time the decision was
made to drop the LaSalle for 1941, at least three wood and metal
mockups had been made for potential LaSalle models. One was based
on the notchback GM C platform which ended up being shared by the
Cadillac Series 62, Buick Roadmaster and Super, the Oldsmobile 90
and the Pontiac Custom Torpedo. A second was based on the fastback
GM B platform which ended up being shared by the Cadillac Series
61, the Buick Century and Special, the Oldsmobile 70 and the
Pontiac Streamliner Torpedo. A third was a modified notchback
design, derived from the fastback B-body, but described as
"A-body-like", that ended up being used by the Cadillac Series 63.
Any or all of these could have ended up being part of the next
LaSalle line. However, it has been inferred that of the three, the
third design was most likely to have been a LaSalle, with that
platform being assigned exclusively to LaSalle, and that the second
design, whose platform was shared with the Series 61, was the next
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1942 Cadillac Series 63 for consideration. This vintage Cadillac is a very good driver and operates flawlessly with its recently rebuilt engine. The vehicle looks stunning in the dark green exterior paint and pairs extremely well with the gray interior. The current owner has hung onto this Caddy for the last decade and has kept a great detail of documentation that includes everything from the engine rebuild, to the tires. Included with this Cadillac is a full-size car cover, a single set of keys, and a large folder full of documentation. We took this vehicle on a test drive that exceeded an hour long and the vehicle handled great, braked well and ran strong throughout the entire drive. Please call or email us today for more details.
