This marked the beginning of what would become a central characteristic of the Sixty Special. For 28 of the next 34 model years of its existence the Sixty Special would feature a uniquely stretched GM C-Body with noticeably greater legroom and headroom.

Through 1948 Cadillac advertised the Sixty Special as a five-passenger car. This was the year that the bumper 'bullets' were introduced; they would remain a Cadillac styling feature through 1958. The slow-selling sunshine top (sun roof) option was discontinued at the end of the 1941 model year and would not reappear in a Cadillac until the 1970Eldorado. While the roomy interior was luxuriously outfitted Cadillac depended on trim to differentiate the exterior of Sixty Special from its Cadillac siblings. Decorative chrome louvers - which would become a Sixty Special trademark ornament for years to come - were mounted in three locations on the 1942 model: behind the wheel well openings on the front and rear fenders as well as mounted on the roof behind the rear door opening. In addition to the louvered trim the Sixty Special had a wider "C-pillar" than other models and retained its individual chrome bead around the side window glass – one of the only design features to carry over from the originalBill Mitchelldesign. Just two models were now available in the Sixty Special series – the standard sedan priced at $2435 and a $2589 Imperial sedan which featured an electrically adjustable glass division between the front and rear seats. Productions totals include 1684 standard sedans and an additional 190 Imperial sedans. Because ofWorld War II Cadillac ended automobile production in February 1942 and began assembling military equipment.

On October 17 1945 the first post-war Cadillac rolled off the assembly line. The 1946 Sixty Special was now very similar to theC-bodySeries 62 though a mild wheelbase stretch added more room to the rear seat area. The 1946 model showed few changes from the 1942 model including a mild grille redesign and new bumpers. Parking lamps and turn signals were now mounted below the headlights. This was the first year the "V" was used underneath the Cadillac crest (the last vehicle to use this emblem would be the 1984DeVille). Only one model remained in the Sixty Special lineup – the $3054 standard sedan. Both sets of fender-mounted chrome louvers were gone but roof-mounted ones remained. Cadillac now used a negative-ground battery on a 6-volt system. Sixty Special would only reach 5700 units for 1946 as it did not go into production until later in the model year. An electric clock was standard.[3]

1947 Cadillac 60 SpecialFew changes greeted Sixty Special for 1947 as an all-new design was coming in 1948. Cadillac's famed "sombrero" wheel covers – in bright stainless steel - debuted this year. Behind the redesigned grille was the same 346cuin (5.67L) engine that Cadillac had been using since 1936 now rated at 150 horsepower (110kW). Bright metal stone shields – mounted on the forward edge of the rear fenders - replaced the black rubber pieces used on the 1946 model. The new grille was made up of five bars versus the previous six. Lastly Cadillac script nameplates replaced the block letters used previously. Price was up to $3195 – a pretty substantial jump from the 1942 price of $2435 considering it was practically the same vehicle. Despite the steep price hike production hit a new height at 8500 units but this represented only 14% of Cadillac's sales down sharply from the 40% share they had represented in 1939. This was largely due to the tremendous sales success of the Series 61 and 62 whose low runningboardless bodies with broad shoulder room had been inspired by the original Sixty Special.
