With GM settling into a styling groove, Cadillac’s ’62s were basically toned-down ’61s. Highlights included still-lower fins, front-fender cornering lights as a new option, a somewhat tamer grille, and backup/turn/stop lights combined behind a single white lens. Four-window sedans received more orthodox rooflines but still included a pair of short-deck variants, which were now named Series 62 Town Sedan and DeVille Park Avenue. A new braking system with dual master cylinder and separate front and rear hydraulic lines appeared, a portent of the future. Model-year output rose to nearly 161,000, up some 23,000 over ’61. — V-8 – Overhead valves Cast iron block.  — Displacement: 390 cubic inches.  — Bore and stroke: 4.00 x 3.875 inches.  — Compression ratio: 10.5:1.  — Brake horsepower: 325 @ 4800 rpm  — Five main bearings.  — Hydraulic valve lifters.  — Carburetion: Rochester four-barrel Model 701930. — The DeVille lineup was much more of a separate series this year and some historical sources list it as such, while others list it as a 6200 sub-series. — The new model for 1962 was a variation of the Town Sedan, introduced the previous season, with a new Style code and name. — It was now Body Style 6289D and referred to as the Park Avenue four-window sedan. — DeVilles were trimmed very similar to base 6200 models. — They had all of the same standard equipment plus Two-Way power seat and power windows.
