1941 Cadillac Series 60 Special

In 1902, after Henry Ford's departure from Henry Ford Company, the Cadillac Automobile Company was formed. Named after the founder of Detroit, Michigan, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac. General Motors purchased Cadillac in 1909, with much of their production dedicated to larger, more luxurious vehicles.

The 1941 Cadillac consisted of many models with two series of the Fleetwood. First, was the Fleetwood Sixty Special, which was available as three models. The second, was the Fleetwood Seventy-Five, which was available as eight models. Both were available with the glass 'Imperial Division' that were electronically controlled. The broad price range allowed for wider spectrum of buyers with the Sixty One being the best selling. 1941 would also mark the beginning of optional 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, which would double in production for the following year. Available options that weren't all that common during the 40's were radios, fender skirts, driving lights, mirrors, windshield washer, back-up lights, integrated headlamps into the fenders and air conditioning, also known as 'Weather-Conditioner'. All of the Sixty-Specials were powered by the same engine, the 346, rated at approximately 135 horsepower. Cadillac's engines became notable for their reliability proven by their use in military operations during the war.
