Having emerged strongly from the Great Depression, General Motors leading Cadillac Division produced one of its all-time finest model lines for 1941. Basic styling was penned by GM stylist Art Ross, with major cues including smooth, pontoon-style front fenders inspired by the Cord 810/812 and wide egg-crate grille. Bill Mitchell, who would become Harley Earls handpicked successor in 1958, quietly influenced Earls final approval decision and contributed the clean, fender-mounted headlamp placement that he had long favored. One Cadillac engine was available for 1941 the smooth and nearly-silent 346 CI V-8, delivering 150 factory-rated horsepower. Sharing its chassis and 126-inch wheelbase with the rest of the Cadillac line except for the formal Series 67 and Series 75 Fleetwood models, the new-for-1941 Series 61 replaced the discontinued LaSalle.Finished in Oceano Blue over flawless Grey wool upholstery, this sleek 1941 Cadillac Series 61 Sedanette is a gorgeous example throughout and benefits from attentive maintenance and care.
