the 62 Series convertible (shown) had the distinctive faux wire wheels.

1965 Cadillac Coupe de Ville

Another facelift leaves Cadillac almost expression less

part of the facelift was to spin the head lights so they were also on the vertical axis

1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Broughman

Luxury cars will be judged by a new standard
new to the lineup the Fleetwood Broughman (shown) is posh
with a padded vinyl roof and a super luxurious interior
even heated seats were available in this model
the Coupe de Ville was still the sales leader however

1967 Cadillac Eldorado

Personal Coupe is how this new Caddy was described
front wheel drive and closely resembling an Old’s Toronado
one inch shorter but a whole lot nicer, this Eldorado
had hidden headlamps, exposed wheels and very crisp styling
although priced $1500. higher than the Old’s it sold almost as well

Cost: $6,275.001960s American Cars

1968 Cadillac Eldorado

No change for Cadillac’s “all time best” design
except in the engine, an all new 472 cubic inch ran cleaner
polluted less and delivered 35 more horsepower than the previous 429
side turn lights were also added to meet new Government standards

Cost: $6,588.00sixties cadillac

1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

Cadillac is still the top line of the luxury cars
and the Brougham is the top Cadillac line
the Fleetwood is almost like a limousine it so well appointed and spacious
Cadillac has the broadest lineup of luxury cars and
ends the decade where it started, firmly in control of the #1 luxury spot

Cost: $8,815.00
