Cadillac's magnificent design and craftsmanship are dramatically displayed in the Sixty-Two Convertible. Behind a windshield of epic proportions, the driver surveys the world about him over a remarkable, low, broad expanse of hood and fenders, flowing together in one smooth, rhythmic line.
The 1959 Cadillac has become a pop culture icon by virtue of its epic tailfins, but it's important for another reason. Along with the rest of the General Motors line for 1959, which was largely a response to the success of Chrysler's 1957 offerings, it established the general wide-low-long dimensions for full-size cars that were the rule until 1977.
