    Help Identifying Vintage Cadillac from photo

    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me what type of Cadillac this is:

    cadillac.jpg

    From what I found online it looks like the Cadillac Series Sixty Two Convertible but the back is a bit different. Does any one know the year, exact model, and any other info.

    Thanks

    Looks to me like a 1946 Series 62 convertible.

    Actually I think there is a strong chance that the car pictured here is a 1942 Cadillac 62 convertible. The car pictured here lacks the stone guard on the leading edge of the rear fender bulge. It seems that stone guard on is present on the 1946 and 1947 Cadillac 62 models while it is absent on the 1941. We can't see the front hood emblem or the rear trunk emblem on the car in this picture which would be the definitive identifying feature because the 1942 had an emblem with "winged" Cadillac emblem while the '46/'47 had begun using the Cadillac crest with the "V" underneath.
