The entry level Series 62 was launched in 1940 to find a new market for Cadillac. While focusing on a smaller chassis. Cadillac still offered big V8 torque and luxury amenities. just on a reduced and less expensive scale. The first post-war 62 was introduced in 1948 but the big news came the following year when Cadillac replaced the existing 346ci Monobloc V8 with their new 160 horsepower overhead valve 331ci V8. Big news came again for 1950. with dramatically redesigned proportions to elude a lower. longer and wider stance. in addition to a new one-piece windshield. Standard for 1950 was Cadillac’s excellent four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. ensuring both swift acceleration and silky smooth gear changes.
