The History of Cadillac:
Cadillac is a General Motors brand that produces luxury automobiles. Cadillac vehicles may be bought in 34 additional countries around the world. Cadillac automobiles are among the most high-end vehicles on the market in the United States.
Cadillac is the world's first automobile, fourth in the United States only to Autocar Company (1897) and fellow GM marques Oldsmobile (1897) and Buick (1899).
The company's name is taken from Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, a French-Canadian fur trader who founded Detroit, Michigan in the late 18th century. The Cadillac coat of arms served as the inspiration for the logo. Before General Motors bought it in 1909, Cadillac had already established itself as one of the most well-known luxury vehicle producers in the United States. It was the first practical vehicle and served as the prototype for subsequent cars because of its ability to connect with small parts. The carmaker's headquarters, the Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, was supposed to symbolize a technical utopia. It was at the forefront of technological advancements including full electrical systems, a frictionless automatic gearbox and a steel roof. Cadillac offered three powertrain choices, setting a new bar for vehicle production in the United States.
Cadillac was the first automobile produced in the United States to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of the United Kingdom in 1908, demonstrating its components' interchangeability during a durability test; as a result, Cadillac took up its current slogan "Standard of the World." The Duryea brothers' venture was the first automobile to feature an electrical system, which it achieved due to its novel design and performance. Their 1912 award for integrating electric starting and lighting in a mass-produced vehicle was given for the first time.
Cadillac automobiles were a passion of Elvis Presley's. He owned over 100 throughout his life, making it the preferred car brand for him.
Harley Jarvis Earl was General Motors' first chief designer and later vice president. He was the first to produce a "concept car," and his engineering and design knowledge allowed him to develop some of GM's and Cadillac's most iconic features, such as the tailfin. GM was one of the first automobile manufacturers to employ female designers in the mid-fifties. Damsels in Design was a team formed by General Motors Company to design the interiors of individual GM brand vehicle models, with Sandra Longyear, Marjorie Ford Pohlman, Ruth Glennie, Ruth Milton, Jeanette Linder, Gere Kavanaugh, Jan Krebs, Dagmar Arnold and Jayne Van Alstyne working on various GM brands and projects.
The year 2022 marks Cadillac’s 120th anniversary, a major milestone for the company.
1961 Cadillac Coupe de Ville
The Cadillac Coupe de Ville was completely redesigned and re-engineered for 1961. The new grille slanted backward toward both the bumper and the hood lip, down along the horizontal plane, with twin headlamps in between. The rear pillars were modern and slanted, with non-wraparound windshield glass. Some versions had clean angular lines with thinner pillars on the backlight, while others had heavier semi-blind quarter roof posts. The front series designation scripts and lower body "skeg fins" trimmed with a thin, three-quarter-length spear molding that ran from behind the front wheel opening to the rear of the automobile distinguished de Ville models.
Standard equipment included power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, dual backup lights, windshield washer, dual speed wipers, wheel discs, plain fender skirts, outside rearview mirror, vanity mirror, oil filter, power windows and 2-way power seats. The car's front and rear coil springs were changed for rubberized versions. Because of this, four-barrel induction systems became the standard power choice, and dual exhausts were no longer available. A new short-decked four-door Town Sedan hardtop was introduced in the middle of the season.
