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.By Daniel Vaughan | Oct 2008
