1941 Cadillac 62 Sedan Offered as a buy-it-now. Make us an offer!
This very nice 62 Sedan has very few miles and a known history going back to new, it was purchased by the current owner in 1962 from a Minister who was the original owner. The car was repainted, rewire, and had the bumpers replated some time back, and has been regularly maintained. The car runs and drives exceptionally well. Finished in a very nice color combination and correct in every manner cosmetically (still retaining its original interior), the car needs nothing to be enjoyed immediately, in fact it could be driven home with confidence.

Cadillac was formed from the remnants of the Henry Ford Co when Henry Ford departed along with several of his key partners and the company was dissolved. With the intent of liquidating the firm's assets, Ford's financial backers,called in engineer Henry Leland to appraise the plant and equipment prior to selling them. Instead, Leland persuaded them to continue the automobile business using Leland's proven 1-cylinder engine. Henry Ford's departure required a new name, and the company reformed as the Cadillac Automobile Company.
The Cadillac automobile was named after the 17th century French explorer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, founder of Detroit in 1701.
Cadillac helped to define advanced engineering, luxury and style early in Automotive History and would come to be known as one of the worldâ€™s finest made vehicles. Precision manufacturing of truly interchangeable parts was an award-winning industry first in 1908. Cadillac was the first manufacturer to release cars with a fully enclosed cab as factory equipment in 1910. Standard electric engine starting and lighting was another award winner for 1912. Cadillac introduced the first production V8 engine for the 1914 model year. Cadillac was the first manufacturer to utilize the skills of a designer to produce a car's body instead of an engineer (1927). This gave the public a car that looked as good as it performed. Cadillac's engineers were first to design a manual transmission with synchronizers for increased drivability (1929) and were instrumental in the early development of the automatic transmission, beginning in 1932. Cadillac offered a production V16 engine from 1930 through 1940 and introduced the production independent wishbone front suspension in 1934. The marque introduced tailfins for 1948. From the late 1960s onward, Cadillac offered a fiber-optic indication system which alerted the driver of a failed light bulb.
The '41 model is generally considered the ultimate Cadillac design wise, setting the stage for all Post War Caddys while still retaining many Pre War elements of design and massing. '41 was the first year for the headlights to move into the fender, its one year only EggCrate Grill is a design Icon, the fully skirted rear fenders, and Goddess of Speed Mascot perfectly accentuate the stately yet purposeful presence of the car. The '41 Cadillac wears its chrome like Jewelry. Our Ebay Policies:
