In 1949, Cadillacs were still very much Cadillacs. The division had its own brand-new overhead-valve engine, its own identity, and a clientele that thought of it products as the very best. It didn't matter much that the body designs differed only in detail from the '48s. These were America's best and there was that silky-smooth V-8 engine under the imposing hood.
While the V-8 engine produced only moderate power, it was incredibly smooth, had gobs of torque, and was only at the very beginning of its development potential. Frequently mated to the optional ($174) Hydra-matic automatic transmission, the 1949 Cadillacs were effortless cruisers and conveyed an image of success and discerning taste. Indeed, none other than famed American sportsman Briggs Cunningham drove a Series 62 Cadillac himself, and in 1950 a Cunningham-entered Cadillac Coupe De Ville finished tenth at Le Mans 24 Hours that year driven - in lounge suits - by the Collier brothers. Although the body style featuring GM styling chief Harley Earl's Lockheed P38-inspired tailfins had made its debut the preceding year, the 1949 Cadillacs are nonetheless landmark models.
This Series 62 is offered in beautiful condition, the Brown exterior paint holds a high level of sheen and is compliment by the abundance of chrome finishings There is high quality chrome running around the entire car; the front and rear bumpers are imposing yet at the same time curvaceous and smooth, the front bumper wraps around the corner of the wings and flows into the mouldings. The rear wheel spats certainly adds to the aesthetics and allows the rear wing lines to flow continuously.
The interior is finished stylishly to a high standard; the seats are finished in a 2 tone cloth and piped around the edges in light brown.The dash and door tops again are finished in a two-tone brown, which is separated by a chrome finisher.
To the road she is silky smooth and powerful, the over head valved V8 pulls you along the road with ease, the combination of a smooth engine and the independent front suspension almost makes it feel as if you are gliding along the road, “a magic carpet ride”.
