 Cadillac crest The Cadillac company was named after Frenchman Antoine Lamet de La Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac, the founder of the city of Detroit. The imposing emblem on the front of the car was based on his coat of arms.
General Motors’ 1948 body design featured tailfins inspired by the Lockheed P38 Lightning fighter plane. After ten years in the making, 1949 saw the introduction of a sophisticated new OHV engine. Smaller and lighter than its predecessor, it delivered more power and achieved better fuel economy.
   US automakers big and small kept buyers interested in the latest models by accelerating the introduction of bold, new, full-width styling and by updating designs annually as the 1940s wore on. Pioneering technical advances, such as automatic transmission, made American cars easier to drive, while big six-cylinder and V8 engines used ever greater quantities of fuel, which was cheap and abundant, to provide more power and refinement than ever before. This was an era of change in the industry, with big conglomerates increasingly dominating the market and selling cars for prices that smaller companies were unable to match.

    Fantastic fins The subtle fins of the Series 62’s were merely the beginning. Fins grew and grew over the next few years, reaching their maximum at the end of the 1950s.
   While Cadillac made high-quality cars with well-appointed interiors, they were a world away from the traditional wood veneer of British premium cars. Painted finishes, chrome plate, and materials such as vinyl and Bakelite were used to produce modern cabins with every luxurious feature available.
