Series 61 History

The Cadillac 61 was produced from 1939 through 1942 when wartime halted production. When war ceased, production resumed and would continue until 1951. The Series 61 was built on a wheelbase that measured 126-inches and powered by a 346 cubic-inch L-head V8 engine that produced 135 horsepower. By 1941, the power had raised to 150 bhp.

In 1948, the Series 61 was re-styled with one of its more prominent features being tailfins. The following year, a new OHV V8 engine, displacing 331 cubic-inches and producing 160 horsepower, was installed.

In 1951, Cadillac again re-styled their Series 61 cars, this time making them lower. They had a one-piece windshield and a longer hood. At the end of 1951, production ceased.
