The Cadillac Series 62 is a series
of cars which was produced by Cadillac from 1940 through 1964. Originally
designed to replace the entry level Series 65, it became the Cadillac Series
6200 in 1959, and remained that until it was renamed to Cadillac Calais for the
1965 model year. The Series 62 was also marketed as the Sixty-Two and the
Series Sixty-Two.

The 1959 Cadillac is remembered
for its iconic huge tailfins with dual bullet taillights. The new model year
also saw two distinctive rooflines and roof pillar configurations, new
jewel-like grille patterns and matching deck lid beauty panels. For 1959, the
Series 6200 became the Series 62. De Villes and 2-door Eldorados were moved
from the Series 6200 to their own series, the Series 63 and Series 64
respectively, though they all, including the 4-door Eldorado Brougham (which
was moved from the Series 70 to Series 69), shared the same 130 in (3,302 mm)
wheelbase. Engine output was an even 325 hp (242 kW) from the 390 cu in (6.4 L)
engine. The Series 62 was identifiable by its straight body rub moldings,
running from front wheel opening to back bumpers, with crest medallions below
the spear. A one-deck jeweled rear grille insert was seen. Standard equipment
included power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, back-up lamps,
windshield wipers, two-speed wipers, wheel discs, outside rearview mirror,
vanity mirror and oil filter. The convertible model had power windows and a
two-way power seat. Plain fender skirts covered the rear wheels and 4-doors
were available in either four-window or six-window hardtop configurations. With
the De Villes and 2-door Eldorados in their own series sales plunged to only
70,736, the lowest since the 1950 model year.

The 1960 Series 62 had smoother,
more restrained styling. General changes included a full-width grille, the
elimination of pointed front bumper guards, increased restraint in the
application of chrome trim, lower tailfins with oval shaped nacelles and front
fender mounted directional indicator lamps. Series 62 models were distinguished
by plain fender skirts, thin three-quarter length bodyside spears and Cadillac
crests and lettering on short horizontal front fender bars mounted just behind
the headlights. Four-window and six-window hardtop sedans were offered again.
The former featured a one-piece wraparound backlight and flat-top roof, while
the latter had a sloping rear window and roofline. Standard equipment included
power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, dual back-up lamps,
windshield wipers, two-speed wipers, wheel discs, outside rearview mirror,
vanity mirror and oil filter. The convertible model had power windows and a
two-way power seat. Technical highlights were finned rear drums and an X-frame
construction. Interiors were done in Fawn, Blue or Gray Cortina Cord or
Turquoise, Green, Persian Sand, or Black Caspian cloth with Florentine vinyl
bolsters. Convertibles were upholstered in Florentine leather single or
two-tone combinations or monochromatic Cardiff leather combinations.Copy and paste links for YouTube.
