1948 Cadillac Series 60 Special

The Cadillac Series 60 Special was a premium luxury car produced by Cadillac from 1938 to 1941 and from 1945 to 1949. It was designed as an exclusive vehicle with a longer wheelbase, bigger rear seat, and additional amenities compared to the standard Cadillac Series 60.

The car was powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produced 150 horsepower and was paired with either a three-speed manual or four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The Series 60 Special featured a luxurious interior with high-quality leather upholstery, wood trim, and an array of electronic features like air conditioning, power windows, and a push-button radio.

In terms of styling, the Series 60 Special had a distinct appearance. It had sleek, curving lines, a sloping hood, and a prominent grille that was known as the “egg crate” grille.

The Cadillac Series 60 Special became a popular choice for wealthy businessmen, politicians, and celebrities for its luxurious and exclusive features. Today, it is a well-regarded classic car with many enthusiasts still driving and collecting them.
