YAK Car Pic of the Day

If you wanted to announce to the neighbors that you were doing well in the mid-20th century, you might have bought one of these — if you could afford it. The 1950 Cadillac Sixty-Two sedan was almost limousine-like compared to most other cars — except of course the Cadillac Series Seventy-Five, which actually was a limousine. The Sixty-two was the middle series, below the Seventy-Five, but above the shorter wheelbased Series Sixty-One, which was four inches shorter than the Sixty-Two (and 24.8 inches shorter than the Seventy-Five). The Sixty-Two also came in coupe, convertible, and Coupe de Ville models. Today’s Pic car, which can be seen regularly on Grand Island (complete with the “KOOL CAD” tag) had a list price of $3,234 and was the most popular 1950 Cadillac with 41,890 produced.
