Cadillac resumed civilian automobile production in October of 1945. The cars of the post-War era benefited from the company's considerable wartime experience, which included the production of some 12,0000 M-5 light tanks and motorized gun carriers. The Cadillac V8 engines had the same displacement and horsepower ratings as their prewar counterparts. Many of the internal parts were improved for greater strength and reliability, thanks in part to knowledge gained during the wartime. Another wartime improvement was the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission.
This car has been given a body-on-frame restoration to factory-original specifications. The hydraulic cylinders for both the power-operated convertible top and windows have been replaced.
