1949 cadillac convertible series 62 restoration

The Fisher-bodied Series 62 used a 129 in (3277 mm) wheelbase. The new Cadillac OHV V8 was the big news for 1949, with minor trim differences otherwise. This 331 cu in (5.4 L) engine produced 160 hp (119 kW).The major difference between Series 61 and Series 62 models of similar body style was minor trim variations. The higher-priced series again had grooved, front fender stone shields and bright rocker panel moldings. Chevrons below the taillights were no longer seen. The convertible was an exclusive offering, as was a new pillar less two-door "convertible hardtop" called the Coupe DeVille. A more Deluxe interior was featured and power window lifts were standard on the convertible coupe and optional with other styles.
