1941 Cadillac Series 60 Special
Coachwork by Fleetwood

Chassis no. 6343444
When the Series 60 Special debuted in 1941, it wasn't just an update on an old design, it was a giant leap forward in motorcar history and represented a glimpse at what was to come following WWII. Designed by famed GM stylish Bill Mitchell (who would later go on to succeed GM styling chief Harley Earl), the Series 60 Special featured long front fenders that swept directly into the front doors and an enveloping front end that fully integrated the front fenders, headlights, hood and grill. This was what cars where going to look like. Under the hood was Cadillac's trusty 346ci V8, but it was now linked to the brand new Hydro-matic automatic transmission.

The example presented here is reported to have been featured in the 1991 Warren Beatty film Bugsy. The interior has recently been reupholstered. The Series 60 Special is a CCCA Full Classic®, giving entry to many events, offering ample opportunity to tour and drive the car the your heart's delight.
