The Cadillac Series 60 was produced from 1936 through 1940 when it was replaced by the Series 61. The Cadillac Series 60 was their mid-price offering; a vehicle outfitted with a potent 322 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engine and stylish bodies. The exterior was designed by the Legendary Harley Earl with their sleek grille and split 'vee'-shaped windshields. The body rode atop of a newly introduced 'knee-action' independent coil spring front suspension. The suspension was designed by Maurice Olley, a former Rolls-Royce engineer. The steering was designed by Hotchkiss and the handbrake could be found located on the dash.

The Cadillac Series 60 easily became the company's best selling model which included more than half of all Cadillac's sold in its introductory year. Cadillac improved the engine for the following year, enlarging its capacity to 346 cubic-inches and increasing its horsepower to 135.

The Series 60 was an important model for Cadillac, because it continued its proud tradition of stylish bodies with exceptional performance. The Great Depression was the cause of many automobile manufacturers being forced into bankruptcy, fortunately, the Series 60 helped carry Cadillac through a rough time in history.
