1958 Cadillac Series Sixty Special Fleetwood

All of the standard Cadillac models were redesigned for 1957. Sales of the Sixty Special reached an impressive 24,000 units. Gone were the chrome fenders louvers, a Sixty Special trademark since 1942. In its place was a giant ribbed metallic panel located on the lower half of the rear fender. The 1958 Sixty Special Fleetwood had broad ribbed stainless steel fairings around the rear quarter panel, below the conical flare. This trim was also used on the fender skirts, which went from the bumper to forward of the rear wheels. These well equipped vehicles came with power steering, power windows, power brakes, a HydraMatic transmission, and power front seats. Available as a four-door hardtop sedan, its base price was $6,200. For 1958, a total of 12,900 examples were sold.
