Third Generation Cadillac Series 62

The production run of the third generation Cadillac Series 62 began in 1948 and ended in 1953. Cadillac offered the vehicle in three body styles, which were the same as in the previous generation.

In 1949 power was increased with a 331 cu. inch engine that produced 160 horsepower.  This generation saw an increased offering of trim levels and luxury options. Cadillac refreshed the Series 62 in 1950, making the cars closer to the ground. The Series 62 also had longer hoods and featured one piece windshields. In 1952, the Series 62 vehicles provided 190 horsepower, which was exceptional for the time.
