The 1948 Cadillac Series 61 Sedanette is one of the most striking, innovative designs of the last half of the 20th century.
It is notable for the effective integration of the tapered fastback roof with the small P-38 style finned taillights that were one of Harley Earl's most lasting and emulated styling innovations. 1948 also was the last year for Cadillac's L-head V-8, an engine of 346 cubic inches and 150 horsepower that ceded little in performance to the 160hp overhead valve V-8 that Cadillac would introduce the next year.
This 1948 Cadillac Series 61 Sedanette (officially known as the Club Coupe) is a gorgeous restoration in beautiful metallic silver-grey with complementary striped silver and grey broadcloth upholstery.
The combination highlights the aerodynamic lines of the sedanette, showing the surface development to advantage while the interior is rich and inviting. Only 3,251 sedanettes were built, making them even more rare than the 5,450 convertibles in 1948 and their lines and luxury are still much appreciated today.
This example has been restored with excellent paint and bodywork, bright chrome and stainless and a beautiful interior. The engine compartment is fully done and carefully detailed to showroom (or better) condition. This 1948 Cadillac Series 61 Sedanette has serious eye-appeal inside and out.
