This 1941 Cadillac 62 Series is a restored vehicle. The owner has had it for 2 years. The vehicle runs great and is mainly used for weekend drives. The 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible. The Fisher-bodied Series 62 replaced the Cadillac Series 61 as an entry level product for the 1940 model line. The Series 62 featured a low sleek "torpedo" style C-body with chrome window reveals, more slant in the windshield, and a curved rear window. The new C-body that the 1940 Cadillac Series 62 shared with the Buick Roadmaster and Super, the Oldsmobile Series 90 and the Pontiac Custom Torpedo featured shoulder and hip room that was over 5" wider, the elimination of running boards and exterior styling that was streamlined and 2-3" lower. When combined with a column mounted shift lever the cars offered true six passenger comfort. The Series 62 was available as a club coupe or a sedan, with 2-door and 4-door convertibles introduced mid-year. In 1941, the one-piece hood came down lower in the front, included the side panels and extended sideways to the fenders. A single rectangular panel of louver trim was used on each side of the hood. The rectangular grille was wide, vertical, and bulged forward in the middle. Rectangular parking lights were built into the top outer corners of the grille. Headlights were now built into the nose of the fenders, and provision for built in accessory fog lights was provided under the headlights. Three chrome spears appeared on the rear section of all four fenders. Rear fender skirts were standard. The Series 62 offered the only 4-door convertible built by Cadillac in 1941 and it would be the last time this body style was ever made by the marque. The extended rear fenders featured skirts over the rear wheels highlighted by Cadillac emblems at the wheel centers. It was strong, emphatic design that, as GM designer David Holls has noted, had great 'road value', instant recognition as a Cadillac at a glance on the road. The interior is the correct trim level 87A finished in Red & Beige Leather with the correct wood grain dash. “See original Build sheet for details” The interior also has safety installed seat belts. All Cadillacs shared the same 346 cu in (5.7 L) 135 hp L-head V8 that year, with power rising to 150 hp. Options on this 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible include a manual convertible top, a spare tire, and a jack. This 1941 Cadillac Series 62 is Body #9 !!!
