1961 Cadillac Coupe de Ville
The Cadillac Coupe de Ville was completely redesigned and re-engineered for 1961. The new grille slanted backward toward both the bumper and the hood lip, down along the horizontal plane, with twin headlamps in between. The rear pillars were modern and slanted, with non-wraparound windshield glass. Some versions had clean angular lines with thinner pillars on the backlight, while others had heavier semi-blind quarter roof posts. The front series designation scripts and lower body "skeg fins" trimmed with a thin, three-quarter-length spear molding that ran from behind the front wheel opening to the rear of the automobile distinguished de Ville models.
Standard equipment included power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, dual backup lights, windshield washer, dual speed wipers, wheel discs, plain fender skirts, outside rearview mirror, vanity mirror, oil filter, power windows and 2-way power seats. The car's front and rear coil springs were changed for rubberized versions. Because of this, four-barrel induction systems became the standard power choice, and dual exhausts were no longer available. A new short-decked four-door Town Sedan hardtop was introduced in the middle of the season.
Cadillac is a General Motors luxury car brand. Cadillacs may be purchased in 34 additional countries across the world. The Cadillac automobiles are among the most expensive cars on the market in the United States. Cadillac is the world's first automobile, fourth in the United States only to Autocar Company (1903) and fellow GM marques Oldsmobile (1897) and Buick (1899).
The company's name is derived 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 was used as the basis for the company's logo. Before General Motors purchased it in 1909, Cadillac had already established itself as one of the most well-known luxury automobile producers in the United States. It was the first functioning vehicle and served as a prototype for future cars thanks to its ability to connect with tiny components. Warren, Michigan's Tech Center was intended to symbolize a technological utopia. The 1940 Cadillac was the first with an all-steel body and a smooth, automatic gearbox. It was also one of the first cars to feature complete electrical systems and a frictionless automated gearbox. The automobile was both cutting-edge and lavishly equipped. It broke new ground in the United States by providing three distinct engine options.
Cadillac became 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, "Standard of the World" has become Cadillac's current tagline. The Duryeas' firm was the first to employ an electrical system in a car, owing to its novel design and performance. The 1912 prize for developing a mass-produced automobile that incorporated electric starting and illumination was won for the first time.
Cadillac automobiles were very dear to Elvis Presley. He owned over 100 of them during his life, making it his favorite automobile brand. In December 1955, he bought his first Cadillac, a pink 1954 Fleetwood. Unfortunately, the car was destroyed in a collision. Elvis purchased a second Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60, this one blue and black, later that year. Missing his pink Cadillac and as a nod to his first hit song "Baby, Let's Play House" in which he references a pink Cadillac, he had his new car painted pink on Lamar Street in the unique hue "Elvis Rose." The famous vehicle has remained at Graceland to this day.
General Motors' first chief designer and later vice president, Harley Jarvis Earl was the first to create a "concept car," and his engineering and design expertise allowed him to create several GM and Cadillac trademark designs, like the iconic tailfin. GM was one of the first automobile companies to employ female designers in the mid-1950s. The design of individual GM brand vehicle models was produced by a group called Damsels in Design, which was established by General Motors. Sandra Longyear, Marjorie Ford Pohlman, Ruth Glennie, Jan Krebs, Gere Kavanaugh, Dagmar Arnold and Jayne Van Alstyne worked on various GM brands and initiatives.
The year 2022 is Cadillac’s 120th anniversary, a significant milestone for the company.
