1954 Cadillac Series 62

For 1954 the Cadillac Series 62 was lower, had many changes to the front fascia including an inverted gullwing bumper and tapered bumper guards, and a slightly updated body design. Changes were made to the rear as well, including a redesigned bumper and dual exhaust outlets in keeping with the jet-inspired style of the era. A new, long-wheelbase version was now available and vehicles fitted with the feature were void of rear fender louvers. All Series 62 models had the Eldorado-style wraparound windshield.

The Series 62 was offered in a variety of 2- and 4-door bodystyles, including sedans, coupes, and convertibles. The Eldorado two-door sport coupe was the most expensive, costing $5,730. A total of 2,150 examples were produced in 1954.

The base two-door coupe cost $3840; a total of 40,940 examples of the two-door coupe (all versions excluding the Eldorado) were built in 1954. 34,253 examples of the four-door sedan (all versions) were created.
