1948 Cadillac Series 62 Saoutchik Cabriolet Gallery

The most characteristic trait of this car is the sweeping two tone fenders that are accentuated by huge chrome accents. These lines help hide the enormous size of the car by breaking it up into several levels. Flanked on the side of the car is canework that was painstakingly applied by paint tube. The same pattern appeared on prewar Fleetwood-bodied Cadillac V16s.

At the front, a serious amount of grill and brightwork was typical for Cadillacs of this era, however the front treatment on this one is more similar to Delahayes over anything else. The front and rear double-decker bumperettes are also a departure from any pre-war practice.
