“Cadillac for 1948 brings forth the full measure of progress the world has learned to expect from the leader of motor car achievement. The 1948 Cadillac constitutes the epitome of the ultra-modern in its finest interpretation.” The 1948 Series 62 was the first all-new post-war Cadillac design.
The aircraft-inspired ’48 design styling cues included long, sleek lines and tail dims inspired by the Lockheed P-38 fighter plane. The public came to adore the fins, which gave Cadillac a brand identity and a long-lasting design motif. The Beautiful redesigned instrument panel house all-driving instruments and gauges, all directly in front of the driver, was used only in 1948, due to significant cost.
