1961 CADILLAC 6200 Cadillac Index


SERIES 6200


1961 Cadillac Cadillacs were restyled and re-engineered for 1961. The new grille slanted back towards both the bumper and the hood lip along the horizontal plane and sat between quad headlamps. New forward slanting front roof pillars with non-wraparound windshield glass was seen. The revised backlight (rear window) treatment had crisp, angular lines with thin pillars on some models and heavier, semi-blind-quarter roof posts on others. A new short-deck sedan was situated in the 6300 lineup, ostensibly created for rich dowagers with small parking stalls in their luxury apartment houses.

Standard equipment on base 6200 models included Rubberized front and rear coil springs replaced the trouble prone air suspension system. Wheelbases were decreased on most models. Four-barrel induction systems were now the sole power choice and dual exhausts were no longer available. Series designation trim appeared on the front fenders.
