Cadillac 1959 - 1964

Series 6200
The 1959 Series 6200 reflected the flamboyance of the 50s. Large tailfins, twin bullet headlamps refect this. There were 5 models in the range including 4 and 6 window sedans. 1960 saw a smoothing out of the lines, less chrome and smaller tailfins. All Cadillacs were restyled in 1961. New forward slanting front roof pillar with non-wraparound windshield glass was introduced. A mild facelift was introduced for 1962. The short deck lid was moved to the Series 6200, whilst a similar model continued to be offered in the Series 6300 range. There were few overall changes in 1963, but those that did occur made the car look longer. Again only minor changes in 1964. The biggest change was found under the hood.
