'60 Cadillac Sixty-Two, Lewiston, N.Y.

When this 1960 Cadillac Sixty-Two six-window sedan was being designed, there must have been a slew of guys (and we can probably assume that back then they were mostly, if not all, guys) in the room. For the four-door hardtop alone Cadillac offered three different roofs: this six-window, a four-window with a wrap-around rear window, and a formal six-window. Then of course there were the two-door hardtop, convertible, and the Seventy-Five sedan and limousine. Roofs galore! (Wasn’t she a James Bond girl?) This blue example was photographed in Lewiston, complete with For Sale sign in the window. When new it was the second-least expensive Caddy at $5,080 and it was the year’s most popular Caddy with almost 27,000 being produced. See them all here.
