Cadillac was restyled and re-engineered for 1961. The new grille slanted back towards both the bumper and the hood lip, along the horizontal plan, and sat between dual headlamps. The new forward slanting front pillars with non-wraparound windshield glass were seen. New standard equipment included a remote control trunk lock.
These extra long nine-passenger cars (Series 6700) were the only pillared four-door sedans in the line. Standard equipment was the same as on base 6300 models and Series 62 convertibles. Trimmings included a full-length lower beltline molding of a simple, but elegant design. Convertible top-look rooflines and windshields with forward “dog leg” style pillars were 1962 carry-overs seen exclusively on this line
For the 62 and 63 production years, Cadillac, for good reason, was largely unchanged as the mild face lift and re-engineering undertaken in 61 had worked very well.
Finished in Ebony Black with dove grey interior this is a remarkable piece of Cadillac history. These 6.4litre V8’s are very thirsty engines, however, also allow for amazing luxurious high speed cruising. Overall, this incredibly spacious example of one of the largest Cadillac’s ever built appears to be very original and in good general condition.
Additional equipment for this example includes; cruise control system, radio, electrically controlled seats, electric windows, air conditioner, tinted windows and hydraulic steering amplifier.
