For 1941, the V-16 engine and LaSalle model line had been retired, as Cadillac embraced its wide-ranging lineup and price points of the Sixty-Series. Soon all civilian production would end as the winds of war blew across the globe. As a result, 1941 would in turn be the final time you could ever buy a Cadillac in the configuration shown herethe Series 62 convertible sedan. With only 400 produced in 1941, this spectacular representation of the body design features a fully-detailed renewal completed by marque-expert Ron Brooks, and it is recognized as a Full Classic the CCCA. Now offered across the entire model line, Cadillac had re-engineered the 346 CI L-head V-8 powerplant with 7.25:1 compression, a downdraft carburetor and a rating of 150 HP and 283 lb-ft of torque; this car uses a 3-speed manual transmission as well. Riding on its 126-inch wheelbase, the car featured modern undercarriage equipment, including the independent front suspension with coil springs, semi-elliptic rear leaf springs and 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Dramatically covered in a brilliant Valcour Maroon paint with matching-red leather interior and complementary beige canvas convertible top, this four-door convertible sedan properly possesses the prowess of the Standard of the World motif. Exterior appointments include the introductory chrome-design egg-crate grille, dual spotlights, a Goddess-style hood mascot, fender skirts with Cadillac crests and conservative brightwork. Inside, leather-covered seating with deep cushioning made driving a pleasure, with the AM radio with antenna, Deco-font clock and round-face speedometer among the accessories. This rare four-door convertible rides on color-matched wheels displaying full-size chrome wheel covers complemented with wide whitewall tires. The prewar legacy of this classic marque would soon pass, but you too can relive the era in this motorcar, the final-year Series 62 convertible sedan.
