1959 Cadillac Series 62

 

 

Cadillac dramatically reworked its model lineup for the 1959 model year. The Series 62's received a toothier grille, a dummy grille across the tail, bright window surrounds, and a trim spear along the side. Most famously, a gargantuan fin topped each rear fender, with tail lights on each side. This year was the war of the fins and Cadillac won. The 62's also had rear fender skirts.

 

The Cadillac 390ci V-8 developed 325 horsepower, Hydra-Matic transmission was standard.

 

Castline M2 Machines have done an incredible job and brought superior detail to a 1:64 scale diecast version. These models include opening doors and hood, and real chrome bumpers.
