1940 Cadillac Model 62 Vehicle Profile

Touring Sedan
1940 was to be a year of beginnings and endings at Cadillac. The Series 62 represented one of the beginnings. The new 'Torpedo' bodies used were a very modern, clean design clearly drawing an influence from the Sixty special Cadillac of the last two years - no belt moldings and sweptback windshield were key features. Yet this car also carries sidemount spare tires, an extra cost option, and the last year they were offered by Cadillac.

Sealed beam headlights, which greatly improved night visibility, became standard equipment while running boards were sill offered as an option.

The Model 62 was powered by a 346 cubic-inch V8 engine delivering 135 horsepower. It rested on a 129 inch platform and was fitted with four-wheel hydraulic brakes. In total, Cadillac produced 5903 examples in four body styles, including a touring sedan, convertible coupe and sedan, and a coupe.

Running boards on the Series 62 were a no-cost option.
