1941 Cadillac 61

The Cadillac Series 61 was a luxury car produced by Cadillac from 1939 to 1951. It was an entry-level model that was designed to fill the gap between the Cadillac Series 60 and Series 62. The Series 61 was known for its elegant styling, powerful engine, and luxurious interior. The first generation of the Cadillac Series 61 was produced during 1939-1940. It was powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produced 135 horsepower. It was available in various body styles, including the two-door coupe, four-door sedan, and convertible. In 1941, Cadillac introduced a redesigned Series 61 with a longer wheelbase and a more powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine that produced 150 horsepower. The car was also dressed up with more decorative chrome accents and luxurious interior features. During the war years, Cadillac suspended production of civilian vehicles to produce military equipment. The Series 61 resumed production in 1946 after the war ended with minimal changes to the previous design. The second generation of the Series 61 was introduced in 1949 with a brand new body and improved engine. The car featured a sleeker, more modern design with a wrap-around windshield, larger rear window, and distinctive front grille. The engine was upgraded to a 5.4-liter V8 that produced 160 horsepower. The Cadillac Series 61 was discontinued in 1951 and replaced by the Cadillac Series 62. Despite its short production history, the Series 61 remains a highly sought-after classic car among collectors and automotive enthusiasts.
