1955 Cadillac Series 62


The 1955 Cadillac was a variation of the 1954 design and were popular with a wide range of drivers from rock stars to bankers. With some minor changes to the grille and trunk lid, as well as updated side trim, the new look kept buyers interested in these cars. The grille was redesigned with wider spaces between the blades and the parking lamps were repositioned directly below the headlights.


Three chrome moldings bordered the rear license plate on either side and deck lid decorations consisted of a V-shaped ornament and a Cadillac crest. The series 62, otherwise known as a Coupe De Ville, had a golden script nameplate at the upper body belt just forward of the rear window pillar. This car is equipped with a 331 cubic inch, 250 horsepower V-8 engine and a 4 barrel carburetor and a 9.0:1 compression ratio. There were 27,879 units produced in 1955 and the base price when new was $3,882.00. This car has undergone quite a bit of work to return it to the beautiful condition it is in.
