|BRK 184 1947 Cadillac Series 62 4-Door Sedan|
|Cadillac Series 62 4-Door Sedan 1952 and 1947|
After World War II, Cadillac, like most manufacturers, returned to production with a modified version of its 1942 design and engineering. This basic formula would remain in production, with some detail changes, through 1947, and it was incredibly popular with buyers for its combination of power and luxury.
Cadillac in 1947 was poised to become America's luxury leader. Unlike Lincoln and Packard, which persisted with Depression-inspired medium-price cars, Cadillac returned to pure luxury to prosper in booming postwar America. Soon, Cadillac pulled even further ahead of rivals in both sales and prestige.
This is second generation of Cadillac Series 62 - full size luxury sedan with most massive grill ever. The Series 62 used the fat bullet fenders that were just coming into fashion in the early 1940s. "Pontoon" styling, new for '42, was making its final appearance, and Cadillac's smooth 346-cubic-inch L-head V-8 was in its next-to-last year.
Brooklin’s hand-built white-metal beauty is this very well-done model of the best-selling ’47 Series 62, the 4-Door Sedan. The Franch Gray paint is smooth and glossy and is set off by lots of separate bright chromed parts. Overall lines are right on the money, as are major dimensions. It’ll be a while before anyone else does one of these – especially this well.
