As General Motors’ Cadillac Motor Division approaches its 115th Anniversary in 2018, it consistently influenced automotive design and manufacture with a succession of landmark models throughout its history. Of all, the new-for-1941 models ushered in a new and totally modern era in terms of styling and set the stage for Cadillac’s eventual postwar dominance of America’s fine-car market when sales overtook those of archrival Packard by 1947. Yet another design triumph from the Harley Earl years at GM Styling, the 1941 Cadillac models marked a clear break from the past in terms of styling, with the old upright, V-shaped radiator grille replaced by the bold, horizontal “egg-crate” grille treatment that remains a Cadillac hallmark today. Conceived by Art Ross, this design element was quietly brought to Earl’s attention by Bill Mitchell, his eventual handpicked successor. Wider in visual appearance than ever before, the 1941 Cadillac models also featured the debut appearance of fender-mounted headlamps, one of Mitchell’s favored design cues. Looking fast even while at rest, the 1941 Cadillac line possessed a rare combination of sporting vigor with timeless elegance and a cohesiveness of design matched by few, if any, of its rivals.

Another break from the past came with the efficiencies gained from Cadillac’s adoption of a single-engine philosophy for 1941 and beyond. Displacing 346 cid, Cadillac’s proven L-head V-8 now capably propelled the entire Cadillac line. An increase in compression raised output to 150 horsepower to yield outstanding 100-mph capability on the open road. Equally important, Cadillac’s V-8 engine was a silky-smooth paragon of refinement with nearly-silent operation. Ride and handling qualities were excellent with independent front underpinnings and continue to impress collectors and marque enthusiasts who like to drive their classics today. A wide Cadillac model range was offered for 1941 along six distinct lines ranging from the entry-level Series 61, which replaced the former LaSalle marque, to the Sixty Special, Series 63 four-door Sedan, the long-wheelbase Series 67, and Fleetwood-bodied Series 75. However, Series 62 truly defined Cadillac’s future direction with its youthful, forward-looking presence and versatility. In addition to the 2/4-Passenger Coupe and 5-Passenger Touring Sedan (both in Standard and Deluxe guise), Series 62 included two top-of-the-line open models, the 2/4-Passenger Deluxe Convertible Coupe, and the final iteration of the glamorous 5-Passenger Deluxe Convertible Sedan.

One of just 400 examples produced and far fewer surviving today, this 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Deluxe Convertible Sedan is resplendent in a correct and newly applied Managua Beige Metallic paint finish, complemented by a new canvas convertible top and boot cover with smart red piping. In addition to the 346-cid Cadillac V-8 engine and three-speed manual powertrain, highlights include a Deluxe heater, radio with power antennae, rear-fender skirts, and factory fog lamps. Handsomely trimmed in red leather upholstery, the interior compartment features a Deluxe steering wheel, wood grain dash finish, and wonderful Art Deco-inspired design cues. Benefiting from a recently-performed service, this wonderful CCCA Full Classic® rides on new tires and stands ready for continued enjoyment, whether in touring events or on the show field.
