Description

For the 75 product line and the upscale Sixty Special sedan, the bodies were built by the in-house coachbuilding division Fleetwood. Despite Fleetwood and Fisher body production always being separate semi-custom production facilities, over the years they became ever more integrated. For both coachbuilders, their main focus was to produce low-volume but high quality/high end body styles and special orders from high valued customers.

In 1956, the series 75 received a new grille, with finer textured insert, and the repositioning of the parking lights in the bumpers, below the wing guards. Buyers were given an option of the standard satin finish grille or an optional gold finish. The engine was stroked to 365 cu in (6.0 L) for 285 or 305 hp (213 or 227 kW) in 1956.

This large 1956 series 75 “high headroom” eight-passenger limousine is one of the rarer models with a driver’s partition and optional gold finished grille. Its exterior colour of Tahoe Blue creates a wonderful aura of summer time cruising. The upholstery is mostly original, and the black leather in the driver’s compartment provides this Cadillac with a lot of comfort and character. 

Diese große 1956er Serie 75 Acht-Passagier-Limousine, ist eines der seltenen Modelle mit einer Teilung des Fahrerraums und goldenem Gitter. Seine Außenfarbe in “Tahoe Blau” erschafft eine wunderbare Aura einer Sommerfahrt. Die Bezüge sind größtenteils original, und das schwarze Leder im Fahrerraum versorgt diesen Cadillac mit viel Komfort und Charakter.
