1952 Cadillac


SERIES 62

This was Cadillac's fiftieth anniversary year. Only minor styling and trim changes were seen, but some were specially planned to commemorate the occasion. For example, the V-shaped hood and deck emblems were done as gold castings. The Series 62 sedan was also characterized by a distinct, higher rear deck lid contour. This provided additional luggage space. Backup lights were standard equipment and were now incorporated in the taillights. The grille wraparound panels were redesigned once again. They now had broad chrome trim below each headlight with side scoop styling and a gold-colored winged emblem mounted in the center. At the rear, all models adopted a new Cadillac trademark, a through-the-bumper dual exhaust system. Deck ornamentation varied by series and, on 62s, took the form of a Cadillac crest over a broad golden 'V'. The Coupe DeVille again had a script nameplate on the rear roof pillar. New standards included self-winding clocks, dual-range Hydra-Matic drive, improved direction signal indicators, glare-proof mirrors, stannate treated pistons, four-barrel carburetion and all other features seen the year before. Hydraulic window lifts remained as regular equipment on convertibles and Coupe De Villes.

SERIES SIXTY SPECIAL FLEETWOOD

The Sixty Special Fleetwood sedan had the same general styling changes seen in other lines, plus minor trim and appointment variations. For example, the word Fleetwood appeared on the rear deck lid (instead of a Cadillac crest) and the eight vertical fender louvers were seen again. Hydra-Matic drive and hydraulic windows were installed at no extra cost to buyers.

Styling changes on the long-wheelbase series also conformed to the theme for the year with the Golden Anniversary aspect highlighted. Equipment features were the same as before and no business sedans were built.
