1965 CADILLAC CALAIS Cadillac Index
CALAIS
The Calais Series replaced the Sixty-Two line for 1965, as one of numerous Cadillac changes. A broader, more unified grille and vertically mounted headlamps featured the styling improvements. The Cadillac tailfin was said to be gone, but symmetrical rear fender forms tapered to very thin edges, top and bottom, giving a very traditional visual impression. Curved side windows with frameless glass were new and convertibles had tempered glass backlights (i.e., rear windows). Last seen in 1956, the standard wheelbase pillared sedan made a return this year. Perimeter frame construction allowed repositioning of engines six inches forward in the frame, thus lowering transmission humps and increasing interior room. Standard Calais equipment was comprised of the following:
