THE 1960 CADILLAC


The 1960 model year was an impressive beginning to a new decade. During the Sixties, adillac styling became more graceful and restrained as Bill Mitchell gradually unified the design. Few new engineering advances were introduced, ut orderly design development and a conservative styling approach set Cadillac apart from other luxury makes and maintained its reputation as "The Standard of the World." To the American public, adillac remained a symbol of prestige, uccess, nd good taste.


The 1960 Cadillac began the evolutionary process of toning down the excesses of 1959. Although it continued the jet plane styling theme of the '59, ts fins were clipped (but still prominent) and Ed Taylor redesigned the taillights into a thin strip of red plastic neatly blended into the end of the fin. Supplementing that was a second taillight in each "exhaust port," now a vertical oval that still housed the backup light as well. The simplified grille lost its horizontal divider bar and the front bumper was also simpler and less bulky. New, oo, as the instrument panel. All in all, he 1960 Cadillac had a more formal, et youthful, ook.


The Cadillac Series Sixty-Two convertible was priced at $5455. This was a very expensive automobile in its day. The Series Sixty-Two models were distinguished by a narrow full-length chrome rub strip that ran from behind the front wheel to the rear bumper.


The 390 cubic inch V-8 had a cast iron block, verhead valves, ive main bearings, ydraulic valve lifters, nd a Rochester four-barrel carburetor. The bore and stroke were 4.00 x 3.875 inches, he compression ratio was 10.5:1, nd the brake horsepower was 325 @ 4800 rpm.


Cadillac's 1960 bold sweeping lines stood out as a modern masterpiece of automotive sculpture. Every luxury and convenience coddled both driver and passengers; with comfort enough for even the longest journey. Here was a car designed for comfort, ut one that offered a pleasant surprise when a quick response was needed -- 0-60 mph in just 10.3 seconds. According to contemporary road tests, as economy ratings for 1960 Cadillac’s were approximately 14 miles per gallon at a steady 60 miles per hour. Cadillac engineering and design had come together in creating a sumptuous machine.


The 1960 Cadillac was designed during a period of great change within GM. Harley Earl was heavily involved with the 1959s, ut Bill Mitchell took over after Earl's retirement and was mainly responsible for the 1960 models. Under Mitchell, new freshness permeated the air -- a freshness and youthfulness that was to become the hallmark of most cars developed under his regime. Earl, itchell, ols, lowacke, nd Scheelk designed a car whose time is now. It is seen everywhere these days: TV, ovies, nd even in commercials for new Cadillac’s! People can't get enough of the 1960 Cadillac's beauty, nd prices are escalating accordingly. It is such a welcome relief to see one parked amongst the little boxes-on-wheels of today. Ah, he genius of it all.


Car Life magazine selected the 1960 Cadillac as its "Best buy in the luxury field."


The dealer Data Book for 1960 says that Cadillac cannot be fully appreciated without experiencing the surpassing comfort of its ride, he remarkable ease and safety of its steering and braking and the exceeding flexibility and sureness of its response to the driver's every demand.

TO SAY THIS 1960 CADILLAC IS VERY ATTRACTIVE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT! IT IS A BEAUTIFUL “SURVIVOR” THAT RUNS AND DRIVES VERY WELL!


This Cadillac is 55 years old, o some signs of age are to be expected! While it is strikingly beautiful, t is not a “RESTORED” vehicle. Everything appears to be in either amazing unrestored original “SURVIVOR” condition or refurbished. However, here are some things that need to be mentioned. The car runs and drives very well, ut sounds like it may need a muffler. The water pump has been replaced, he transmission rebuilt and the brakes were done. This Cadillac has been driven very sparingly since the above work was done. The car appears to have been repainted only once in its correct original Pompeian Red Metallic. There is some lacquer checking on the nose of the hood and in some other places. There are indications that there had been some rust that was previously repaired at the lowest part of the rear quarter panels. The exterior chrome is in excellent condition, nd there are only a few very minor scratches. The convertible top was replaced and is in good condition. The interior is mostly original and in mostly excellent unrestored condition. The original clock, ipers, indshield washer and original radio with power antenna are not working, ot surprising for a car this age, lthough the signal seek on the radio does operate. The motor for the 6-way power seat works, ut the seat does not move. I have made no attempt to repair this, ut suspect this is a very simple repair, erhaps as easy as lubrication. The original front seat leather is in very good condition, specially for a convertible, nd shows just a bit of wear with a few spots of some very minor surface cracking in the color coating. The instruments, oor panels and padded dash pad look like new. The carpet was replaced and is in excellent condition.

Please note that the California license plate shown in the photos is not included with the vehicle.


Note that the odometer reading above is believed to reflect this Cadi’s actual total miles, owever I do not have documentation to confirm that.



This Cadillac is absolutely beautiful. It would not take much to bring this Cadillac up to the next level!


This Cadillac will turn heads and gets thumbs up virtually everywhere it goes!
