1940 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe SOLD

The 1940 Cadillac Series 62 marked an interesting transition for Cadillac. On one hand, it was the first year for this new model, the entry level of the Cadillac range that replaced the Series 60. It was also a car that represented an early form of “platform sharing” among General Motors products, as it shared its basic configuration with the Buick Roadmaster and Oldsmobile Series 90 among others. Exclusively for Cadillac, the body was given a wide-shoulder design that eliminated the need for large exterior running boards and lent the car a striking and modern appearance. On the other side of the coin, the 1940 models marked the end of the traditional classic era styling once and for all. The tall upright center grille was still flanked by separately mounted headlamps and “waterfall” grilles in the front wings. It was no doubt a handsome car, but the follow year saw the introduction of the new front end design with integrated headlamps and a low, wide grille. In effect, the 1941 models overshadowed the 1940 cars, but when looking back, the 1940 Cadillac Series 62 can be seen as the ultimate expression of the Art Deco and Classic Eras, a beautiful machine with fabulously detailed and streamlined front end design that was both imposing and elegant.

Mechanically, the Series 62 utilized the proven and powerful 346 cubic inch Monoblock, L-head V8 engine. Customers could choose between a synchronized 3-speed manual or 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic gearbox. With 135 horsepower on tap, the performance was quite strong and these cars have always been appreciated for their fine road manners and handling. Customers loved the new Series 62, as it delivered Cadillac’s traditional quality and style in an attainable package. As a result, sales skyrocketed for both 1940 and 1941, though Series 62 production was cut short in 1942 to concentrate on the war effort.

This 1940 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is an attractive and usable example of this sought-after pre-war Cadillac. We are very pleased to offer this car on behalf of the CCCA Educational Foundation, to which 100% of proceeds from the sale will benefit. This is a sound and solid car, presented in an attractive color combination of cream over red wheels and a red interior. Paintwork is shiny and sound, and while there are some imperfections to be found, it is generally rather good looking with nice paint on straight, solid panels. It sits proudly on proper steel wheels with original-type hub caps and wide whitewall tires. The chrome is generally fair with straight bumpers and good exterior trim, though there is some significant pitting on the die-cast grille that would benefit from restoration.

The spacious interior is in good condition, trimmed in red and gray upholstery on the seats and door panels, with very good red carpeting. Interior fittings and controls all appear in good condition, with attractive, largely original chrome as well as original instruments, switchgear and a lovely ivory Bakelite steering wheel. This car is equipped with a 3-speed manual transmission, heater and radio. The convertible top, trimmed in tan canvas, is in good condition and complements the paintwork well.

Cadillac’s 346 Monoblock V8 is tidy and clean in the engine bay, and while it isn’t fully detailed, it is clean and well-presented. It runs and drives quite well, delivering the easy-going road manners these cars are so well known for. This is a car that appears to have never been fully restored, instead getting restoration work done as needed over the years. As a result, it retains an appealing patina, runs and drives quite well and would make for a very nice tour car. It is also a CCCA-approved Full Classic so it is eligible for CARavan Tours and other similar events. This is a great example of a late pre-war Cadillac for an enthusiast seeking a car to drive and enjoy on a regular basis. An added bonus is that every dollar of the purchase price will benefit the CCCA Education Foundation, which works to continually promote our hobby for years to come.
