Excellent options that include division glass partition, -speed transmission, actory amber fog lamps, toplight, ual radios, nd more! A great addition to any prominent Cadillac collection!
In 1941, adillac decided to go back to fitting their cars with just one engine model. It’s the first time this one name, ne engine marketing campaign has happened since 1926. Now all Cadillacs were powered by the same 346ci L-head V-8 engine, hich produced 150 horsepower. This was a very bold move by Cadillac, ut it worked out in their favor considering the engine’s long standing reputation for dependability. Major design changes in 1941 included sweeping front fenders now extending back into the front doors with headlights built into the front along with a new, ectangular grill, epositioned parking & turn signal lamps, nd revised front bumper assembly giving the new Sixty Specials a look often imitated by other manufacturers going forward, ncluding GM’s own Chevrolet division. The wheel base was reduced by one inch, nd Sixty Special prices increased slightly due to these fresh design and style changes. Even today, any Cadillac enthusiasts consider the Sixty Special the most attractive Cadillac ever designed by Bill Mitchell. More so, ust 4,100 examples would be built this final, ull production year before the war effort would begin. Rarer still would be the 220 Imperials manufactured with a factory partition glass window dividing the passenger compartments.
We are very excited to be offering this 1941 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special Imperial finished in its factory original Gloss Black lacquer exterior. Purchased from the former owner/curator for the past 36 years here in Missouri, his very well preserved car remained nearly 100% original throughout upon acquisition. Although, he original interior upholstery had survived rather well being covered in plastic for many years, e felt this extremely rare Imperial deserved a new interior. It was completely removed in late 2015 and professional refinished by our very own Danny Slivinski here in-house. Everything from the headliner to the carpet were all recovered! New tan broadcloth cloth and light brown Bedford cord were provided by Hirsch, nd the oatmeal square weave in the trunk. The headliner was outsourced and reproduced by SMS Auto Fabrics. From the seat buttons, un visors, e-chromed trim spears on the door panels & seat bottoms, ilton I wool carpeting, inding, ind lace, ireon, o the new rear ash tray covers, t now all looks brand new and truly gorgeous!
The majority of examples came in the style number 41-6019, hich was a standard Fleetwood Sixty Special Touring Sedan for 5 passengers. This one we are offering has the style number 41-6019F, hich was a Fleetwood Sixty Special Imperial Sedan that has a formal glass division. Only 220 were produced like this, nd they were priced $150 higher than the base model. Additional features on this example include favored 3-speed manual transmission, uxiliary oil filter, otorola Golden Voice pushbutton AM radio up front with fender mounted antenna, econdary rear radio with individual armrest controls & rear mounted antenna, indshield washer, ppleton spotlight, ocking fuel door cover, nder-seat heaters with defrost, ront amber tinted fog lamps, ear trunk light, nd Firestone Wide whitewall Deluxe Champion tires measuring 7.00-15 in size.
