All 1941 Cadillac's were powered by a 346 cubic inch V8, with increased compression, that produced 150 horsepower. New for 1940, was Cadillac's use of the fully shiftless Hydra-Matic transmission. The Hydra-Matic, originally developed by Oldsmobile in 1939, became a staple of the line until 1949. This combination produces a 0-60 mph time of 14 seconds and a top speed of approximately 100 mph. The 1941 Cadillac models wore GM Styling by Harley Earl and Bill Mitchell, and was a departure from the past in terms of styling, with the old upright, V-shaped radiator grille replaced by the horizontal 'egg-crate' grille treatment. This car has black number plates which refers to certified vintage car (99% original).

1953 was a monumental year for Series 62 as it was the first time it offered over 200 horsepower. This was accomplished with the help of a four-barrel carburetor and a Hydra-Matic transmission. Many styling changes occurred in 1953 and 1954. Subtle refinements appeared for 1955, such as wider spaces between the grille blades, repositioned parking lamps, and small yet distinct changes in various trim pieces. Despite other luxury car manufacturers attempts, the Cadillac remained the leader in the luxury market.

Cadillac was restyled again for 1963. Exterior changes imparted a bolder and longer look. Hoods and deck lids were redesigned. The front fenders projected 4.625 inches further forward than in 1962 while the tailfins were trimmed down somewhat to provide a lower profile. Body-side sculpturing was entirely eliminated. The slightly V-shaped radiator grille was taller and now incorporated outer extensions that swept below the flush-fender dual headlamps. Smaller circular front parking lamps were mounted in those extensions.

For 1978, the Biarritz option added a convertible-like padded vinyl top, unique script, body chrome moldings, and accent stripes. The Biarritz package included opera lamps, remote-control passenger-side mirror, and color-coordinated wheel discs. A Custom Biarritz Classic option was also available, which added a two-tone paint scheme.
