As World War II came to an end, Cadillac turned its attention on producing cars again. Development began immediately on the first all-new postwar Cadillac, led by the Series 61 and 62 models, which shared the all-new GM C-body platform. For 1948, the Cadillac models had a pronounced horizontal styling theme and a pair of subdued tailfins reminiscent of the P-38's twin tails. Both the Series 61 and 62 models had different levels of interior and exterior fittings and trim. The Series 62 was the upscale model, easily identifiable with its stone shields and the lack of chrome rocker moldings. The 1948 models were the last to receive the 346 cubic inch flathead V8 engine, noted for its smoothness and durability.

This Series 62 Convertible Coupe wears an older restoration. It has a new tan Haartz cloth top, excellent brightwork, dual rear view mirrors, full 'sombrero' wheel covers and a set of period wide whitewall tires. The interior is period correct, featuring leather upholstery equipped with amenities including power window lifts, an AM radio and an electric clock. Power is from a 346 cubic-inch V8 engine mated to a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. There are four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and an impendent front suspension with coil springs.

In 2009, this car was brought to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $60,000-$80,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot was sold for the sum of $46,750 including buyer's premium.
