1952 Cadillac Series 62 4-Door Sedan by Brooklin Models

The Series 62 was a series of cars produced by Cadillac from 1940 through 1964. There were three series available on three different wheelbases. By far the most popular was the 62 and the four-door sedan outsold all other body styles combined.
In 1952, to commemorate the Golden 50th Anniversary of Cadillac, the V-shaped hood and deck emblems were done as gold castings. The Series 62 sedan was also characterized by a higher rear deck lid contour. This provided additional luggage space. Back up lights were now standard equipment and were incorporated in the taillights. The grille wraparound panels were redesigned once again having broad chrome trim below each headlight with side scoop styling and gold-colored winged emblem mounted in the center. At the rear all Cadillacs adopted a through the bumper dual exhaust system. Notice the beautiful decent tail fins . Deck ornamentation took the form of a Cadillac crest over abroad golden "V".

Amazing Brooklin white metal model is extremely heavy and exudes luxury and pomposity  of baroque shapes of the original. Black finish is the best choice for a formal impression. On the black excelling amount of of chrome parts - gorgeous grille, bumpers, door handles, windsreen wipers, bonnet trim, headlights, side trim, rocker panels and boot trim & handle . Nice detail is "Golden Anniversary Trim" - golden plated bonnet and boot badges. My only criticism, and it's a minor one, is that dashboard is a dull. This is must have model.
