Pre-war sedans always have a bit more style. So when you find a big, glossy, two-tone, and quite correct 1941 Cadillac Series 60 Special sedan, you know this V8 classic is something quite special.
The 1941 car is often sought after. It’s the final evolution of the first-generation Series 60. It ushered in a new sense of style. The broad grille, integrated headlights, and deleted running boards would be what was coming to post-WWII Caddys and carried into the 1950s. So this is a trendsetter. That’s why it’s important to look vintage and distinctive. The two-tone black and silver is an upgrade later in life, but it has the timeless kind of attraction that would have looked right in 1941. And the details are even right, too, like the factory wheel covers, whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, and the taillight housings that hint at the tailfin era that was coming after the war.
Just like the exterior, the interior has the right feel of a car that has a period-correct style but with a fresher presentation. The full gray package looks sophisticated with its textured inserts in the full cloth setup. This is quite a vintage ride, and so you appreciate the texture of the large steering wheel, the action of the long column shifter, and the beauty of the symmetrical Art Deco style dash. And because rear seat comfort was just as important, this is details like a rear vent window and large fold-down armrest. So it’s comfy for far more than just its size.
Cadillac’s 346 cubic-inch V8 engine was the icon of the industry. This big motor carried sixty percent more displacement than what was available at Chevrolet. This kind of history makes it extra special to have the correct-style V8 under the hood today. More than just the motor, the whole engine bay appears to be highly original. It includes nice green flat heads, an original-style air cleaner, and an overall tidy style. This V8 makes plenty of torque, and when combined with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, this classic Caddy still knows how to cruise with comfort.
You might notice a little wear on the steering wheel or want to polish the black paint for a better shine, but those are the little things that give a classic character. And this Caddy really knows how to deliver serious vintage charm from the moment it arrives. So if you want to be the center of attention, hurry up and call today!
