This article is about Cadillac Sixty Special. For the model it was derived from, see Cadillac Series 60. The Cadillac Sixty Special name has been used by Cadillac hp P2035 Driver Windows 7 64 Bit denote a special model since the 1938 Harley Earl-Bill Mitchell-designed Series 60 derivative. The Sixty Special name would soon be synonymous for some of Cadillac’s most luxurious vehicles, and was offered as a four door sedan and briefly as a four door hardtop only.
This exclusivity was reflected in the introduction of the exclusive Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham d’Elegance in 1973, and the Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham Talisman in 1974, and was offered as one trim package below the Series 70 limousine. For 1938, the Harley Earl-Bill Mitchell designed Sixty Special was added between Cadillac’s lowest-priced line of cars, the «Series 60», and the «Senior» large-bodied Cadillacs. Although all first-generation 60 Specials were built at the Fleetwood Plant, the 60 Special was marketed as a Fisher Body car in 1938 and 1939.
Contrary to what was then the trend in luxury automobiles, the new Sixty Special was intended as an owner-driven car, rather than a chauffeur-driven one. It was built on a 127. This not only gave the new Cadillac the stiffest chassis on the market, but it was also 3 inches lower than other Cadillacs — with no sacrifice in headroom. The disappearance of running boards along the side and its lack of belt-line trim made the sleek car appear even lower.
More important, it allowed shoulder and hip room to increase by over 5 inches without an increase in overall width. When combined with the brand-new column-mounted shift lever, the cars offered true six passenger comfort. 2,090 each — it was a success in every measure.
A not well-received new front end, which was patterned on the Lincoln Zephyr and lacked the visual punch expected by Cadillac buyers, a modest change in trim level, and some new options appeared for Sixty Special in 1939. First among the new options was a retractable metal panel above the front seat called a «Sunshine Turret Top Roof,» a predecessor to the moon roof. The sliding roof, patented by GM’s Ternstedt Hardware division, was operated by a hand crank.
Second was an optional retractable division windows 7 between the front bit rear seats. This 64 did not p2035 a header in the roof, only hp between the door driver for the retractable glass to travel.
2,090 remained for 1939 as well. Special orders in 1939 included a convertible sedan built on the Sixty Special chassis for Prince Frederik of Denmark.
Starting in 1940, and for the remainder of its existence, the Sixty Special would be Fleetwood marketed, enjoying higher-priced molding, trim and upholstery like the Series 75 and 90. Thus it took over the Series 70’s place, which was dropped for the 1938 model year, as Cadillac’s most luxurious owner-driven large model, a role it would fill through 1976.
These two very formal cars had a hp P2035 Driver Windows 7 64 Bit roof section over the front seat and a glass division window. Of the Sixty Specials built in 1940, 4,242 of them were the Touring model.
1941 was the last year of Harley Earl and Bill Mitchell’s original Sixty Special design, as an all-new 1942 model was in the works. Many consider the 1941 to the most beautiful of this series, though Mitchell himself favored the clean lines of the original 1938 model. For the first time, Cadillac had its own front end design—the «tombstone» grille with a high center section flanked by lower side sections—that would identify Cadillacs for years to come.
The new «face» blended well with the original body, and the rear fenders now held full skirts. Only 1 Sixty Special Town Car was made this year and used on the auto show circuit before being purchased by film director, C. Featuring the leather-covered roof, it was the last one to come from Cadillac-Fleetwood.
There were nearly 17,900 Sixty Specials made from 1938 to 1941, including about a dozen custom bodied versions. This marked the beginning of what would become a central characteristic of the Sixty Special.
For 28 of the next 34 model years of its existence the Sixty Special would feature a uniquely stretched GM C-Body with noticeably greater legroom and headroom. Through 1948, Cadillac advertised the Sixty Special as a five-passenger car.
