1941 CADILLAC

Cadillac Index
For 1941, the Series 61 designation was brought back, replacing LaSalle in the Cadillac price structure. A new Series 63 was offered in one body style. A new Series 67, with Fisher sedan bodies and the longest wheelbase (139 in.) replaced the 1940 Series 72. For the first time since 1926, all Cadillac products used the same engine.

1941 Cadillac

Front end stylists adoped a theme which was to be repeated for years to come. The one piece hood came down lower in front, included the side panels, and extended sideways to the fenders. A single, rectangular panel of louver trim was used on each side of the hood. Access to the engine compartment was improved, to say the least. The rectangular grill was wide, vertical, and bulged forward in the middle. Rectangular parking lights were built into the top outer corners of the grille. Headlights were built into the nose of the fenders, and provision for built in accessory fog lights was proved under the headlights. Three chrome spears were on the rear section of all four fenders, except on the Sixty Special. Rear wheel shields (fender skirts) were standard on most bodies.
Sixty special front fenders extended into the front doors

Series 61 Coupe and Sedan were fastback styles reminiscent of the Aerodynamic coupes of the Thirties.

Series 62 came in the standard body style lineup, including the only Convertible Sedan for 1941 and the last such body style offered by Cadillac.

Running boards were concealed or no-cost options on all but the 60S and 75; the Sixty Special had none and the 75s had nothing but. Power tops, electric divisions, factory installed air conditioning, and Hydra-Matic transmissions were available.

Serial numbers were located on the left fram side bar, opposite the steering gear. Starting number: Same as the engine number. Ending number: Same as engine number. Engine numbers were on the crankcase, just behind the left cylinder block parallel to the dash.
