1960 Cadillac Deville
"After the garish rocketry of 1959, the 1960 Cadillacs were greeted as a welcome sign that saner heads were prevailing at giant General Motors. These cars were just a facelift of the year-old '59 design, but they were arguably more elegant with their cleaner grilles and, in a reversal for Cadillac, lowered tailfins. The 1960 Cadillac model offerings stayed the same. So did prices, ranging from $4,892 for the Series 62 hardtop coupe to $9,748 for the big Series 75 limousine. Mechanical specifications also stood pat. Cadillac had run ninth in U.S. model-year production for 1956-57, and then dropped to 10th, where it would remain through 1964. Still, that was impressive going for a luxury make."
