1958 CADILLAC SIXTY SPECIAL FLEETWOOD -- CALLED MOTORDOM'S MASTERPIECE
This year the Caddy sheetmetal got only minor reshaping with spiked fins but yet called the most flamboyant Cadillac's yet with chrome extravaganza. The Series 60 Cadillac came in only this model shown, a hardtop sedan. Other Cadillac models were the Series 62, at the low end, and then above the Series 60 was the Series 70, the Eldorado Brougham, and the Series 75 the limo and commercial chassis for hearse and ambulance bases. This Series 60 Special cost $6,232 and 12,900 units were manufactured. The engine available is a V8, 365 cid with between 310 - 365 bhp. I admire this beauty because of it's luxury feel from the dagmar bumpers with it's rubber tips, and the " luxurious " black and gold fleck upholstery with white leather. How 'bout that hardtop look with the expanse of grooved stainless steel along the rear quarter panel with matching fender skirts ? Tons of chrome lathered on this Cadillac with glossy black paint make this a very fifties luxury car and a great example of what the GM Division called a Motordom's Masterpiece. Thanks very much for viewing this 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood hardtop.
