History of the 1948 Cadillac Series 62:
The 1948 Cadillac Series 61 and Series 62 were the first new designs from the company following World War II. The wheelbase was shorter than the 1947 models, which were basically warmed-over 1942s. But the big news was the appearance of the Cadillac fin, which housed the rear taillight and made the car look lower. Fins would characterize Cadillacs for the next 30 years and would be adopted as a styling cue across manufacturers through the end of the 1950s and beyond.
The 1948 model year was abbreviated to about eight months and production was modest. The lower line Series 61 only sold 8,600 units, in four-door sedan and two-door fastback sedanette body styles. The big seller in the Series 62 line was the four-door sedan, which accounted for 24,000 of the model’s 34,000 sales. In the Series 62, a club coupe cost $2,900 and a convertible ran $3,400. Only 5,450 1948 Cadillac Series 62 2dr Convertibles were produced making them extremely rare and collectible today.
