Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Sedan
It has been said that, in aesthetic terms, Cadillac was to 1941 what Cord was to 1937, what Duesenberg was to 1929 and what LaSalle was to 1927. Visually, the new-for-1941 Cadillac model range was simply a masterpiece of subtle, flowing curves, beginning with its bold and distinctive frontal treatment.
Mechanically, the 1941 Cadillac was an even more remarkable achievement, with its fine ride and handling characteristics. Power was supplied by the 346-cubic inch “flathead” V8, which produced a stout 150 horsepower, continuing with careful evolution through 1947. For a premium of $125, Cadillac buyers could also specify the new Hydra-Matic fully automatic transmission for the first time in 1941.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in July of 2010 at the Shotwell Gustafson Pavilion at Meadow Brook Hall, Rochester, Michigan.
