1949 Cadillac Coupe de Ville
The Coupe de Ville was Cadillac's last model for nearly 20 years, being introduced in the 1949 model year. It was a closed, two-door coupe from the beginning of Cadillac's Series 62 range and was one of the first pillarless hardtops from the brand. The Series 62 is a high-end version of the Series 60. It was one of the most expensive series in terms of price, at $3,497. It was lavishly trimmed with leather upholstery and chrome "bows" in the headliner to simulate convertible top ribs. The first-year Coupe de Ville was only produced in 2,150 units, but unit sales increased to almost double that mark in 1950 and 1951. It was one of the most popular models at GM by 1961, with yearly sales exceeding 20,000.
The Coupe de Ville was joined by the Sedan de Ville in 1956, a four-door hardtop sedan. The two-door Sedan de Ville would eventually be outlived by its four-door counterpart. In 1959, the de Ville series was split into a separate Series 63.
From 1949 through the early 1970s, the Coupe de Ville, like other Cadillacs, increased considerably in size and power. In 1973, the model year that included the Chevrolet El Camino and Chevelle SS 454, it was 3 inches (76.2 mm) longer in wheelbase and had an overall length of 17 inches (431.8 mm) greater, weighing 919 pounds (410 kg). The engine capacity has also increased from 331 cubic inches. For the 1973 model year, the Coupe de Ville was kept as a pillarless hardtop, but for 1974 it was restyled as a pillared two-door with then-fascinating opera windows behind the side windows. The Sedan de Ville remained a pillarless four-door until 1976.
The first B-body and C-body sedans went on sale in July 1977, with a 9.8-inch (249 mm) decrease in length and around 750 pounds (340 kg) weight reduction over the previous year's models. The new industry standard engine was a 425 ci V8 (6.9 L). In 1985, the de Ville was shortened yet again, this time by 26.2 inches (665.5 mm) and 800 pounds (363 kg). It also switched to front-wheel drive.
The Sedan de Ville's lack of popularity prompted its cancellation in 1993. For 1994, the series name was changed from Sedan de Ville to Sedan de Ville Concours, and the four-door Sedan Deville and (Sedan) Deville Concours were introduced. For decades, it was simply referred to as the Cadillac de Ville before being renamed to Cadillac Eldorado in 1997 and 2002. From 1997 through 1999, the Concours model was available; however, from 2000 until 2004, it was marketed as a Chevrolet Camaro again. Following that, Cadillac created a "DTS" variant for the Deville line, which stands for Deville Touring Sedan.
The 1950s models with their ostentatious fins are likely the most famous versions of the automobile. Models from this period have frequently appeared in films and music videos as well as on postage stamps. A film called Coupe de Ville directed by Joe Roth became popular in the early 1990s.
The Coupe de Ville (and more generally, Cadillac) is highly regarded among automobiles mentioned in American popular music, ranging from rap to country to pop to blues, and this trend has continued for more than 10 years since the model was discontinued.
Cadillac is a General Motors brand that produces luxury automobiles. Cadillac vehicles may be bought in 34 additional countries around the world. Cadillac automobiles are among the most high-end vehicles on the market in the United States.
Cadillac is the world's first automobile, fourth in the United States only to Autocar Company (1897) and fellow GM marques Oldsmobile (1897) and Buick (1899).
The company's name is taken from Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, a French-Canadian fur trader who founded Detroit, Michigan in the late 18th century. The Cadillac coat of arms served as the inspiration for the logo. Before General Motors bought it in 1909, Cadillac had already established itself as one of the most well-known luxury vehicle producers in the United States. It was the first practical vehicle and served as the prototype for subsequent cars because of its ability to connect with small parts. The carmaker's headquarters, the Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, was supposed to symbolize a technical utopia. It was at the forefront of technological advancements including full electrical systems, a frictionless automatic gearbox and a steel roof. Cadillac offered three powertrain choices, setting a new bar for vehicle production in the United States.
Cadillac was the first automobile produced in the United States to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of the United Kingdom in 1908, demonstrating its components' interchangeability during a durability test; as a result, Cadillac took up its current slogan "Standard of the World." The Duryea brothers' venture was the first automobile to feature an electrical system, which it achieved due to its novel design and performance. Their 1912 award for integrating electric starting and lighting in a mass-produced vehicle was given for the first time.
Cadillac automobiles were a passion of Elvis Presley's. He owned over 100 throughout his life, making it the preferred car brand for him.
Harley Jarvis Earl was General Motors' first chief designer and later vice president. He was the first to produce a "concept car," and his engineering and design knowledge allowed him to develop some of GM's and Cadillac's most iconic features, such as the tailfin. GM was one of the first automobile manufacturers to employ female designers in the mid-fifties. Damsels in Design was a team formed by General Motors Company to design the interiors of individual GM brand vehicle models, with Sandra Longyear, Marjorie Ford Pohlman, Ruth Glennie, Ruth Milton, Jeanette Linder, Gere Kavanaugh, Jan Krebs, Dagmar Arnold and Jayne Van Alstyne working on various GM brands and projects.
The year 2022 marks Cadillac’s 120th anniversary, a major milestone for the company.
