The Cadillac is a vehicle manifestly intended to cover long distances at a high cruising speed whilst demanding the absolute minimum of effort from the driver and imposing the smallest possible distraction upon the passengers.’ The series 75 line did the best at fulfilling this business plan.
An all-new Series 75 was introduced for 1950 which conformed to the post-war styling introduced on other Cadillacs in 1948. This would replace the pre-war design dating back to 1941 with a new 146.8 in (3,730 mm) wheelbase. It featured six-window styling, a one piece windshield, the absence of running boards and a “high-headroom” limousine-type appearance.7-passenger seating was again offered via jump seats in the sedan, business sedan and Imperial sedan. Surprisingly Hydramatic automatic transmission was optional but power windows were standard equipment.
Bought by its current owner from a museum in Hachenburg, Germany, in 2005, this is a wonderful example of what has been one of the most luxurious modes of transport over the last 61 years, and is found in good general order. This 1953 Series 75 is finished in the most appealing colour combination of Sable Black with beige interior in the rear seating area, and black leather seating in the drivers compartment. Also provided with this iconic and beautifully designed classic, is an automatic 3-speed gearbox with Hydramatic transmission.
