Over the years, Cadillac has produced many models, evolving with the times to turn out high quality, great looking car that boast unique style and trendy appearance. Many of the earlier models have since become classics, especially those no longer in production today. The Series 62 is, perhaps, one of the most popular of those models, and was in production for quite a long time.Production of the Series 62 began in 1941, and enjoyed a long life, lasting until 1964. Like its predecessor, the Cadillac Series 70, this mid-sized car was built with style and luxury in mind.
In later years, the series was renamed 6200, after having been replaced by the Cadillac Calais. The style and features evolved over the years as the popularity of the model increased. By 1964, many changes had been implemented that made it among the most sought after of its time.
One such change was an up-front bi-angular grill that formed a v-shape along both its vertical and horizontal planes. The main grill bar was then carried along the body. This car also sported a number of other cosmetic changes that also served to improve its drivability, and sported a V-8 under the hood.
The features were, for the most part, a replication of those found on the 1963 model, but they are worth mentioning anyway. One feature first introduced into the industry with this model however, was comfort control, a completely automatic air conditioning and heating system controlled by a dial thermostat located on the instrument panel. This feature had never been installed in a Cadillac before, and helped to set them apart from other car makers at that time.
Though the various variations on the Cadillac 62 were somewhat different in style, all Cadillac 6200 Sedans were pillarless, four-door, six-window hardtops.
The time spanning between 1941 and 1964 when these cars were produced allowed for many different models to be manufactured. Once these cars were no longer in production, however, they remained popular among those who wished to own luxury cars, and have since become classics of their time.
While there are many types of Cadillac produced, the Sedan has long been considered one of the highest in quality, luxury cars, and its classic models are still highly sought after today. Car enthusiasts and collectors appreciate these earlier models for their unique appearance. As with any other classic car, there is something that sets it apart from all the rest.
