The Cadillac Sixty Special is a name used by Cadillac to denote a special model since the 1938 Harley Earl-Bill Mitchell-designed extended wheelbase derivative of the Series 60, often referred to as the Fleetwood Sixty Special.
The Sixty Special designation was reserved for some of Cadillac's most luxurious vehicles. It was as offered as a four-door sedan and briefly as a four door hardtop.
Why Is This Car Special
These 1940 Cadillac Series 60 cars like the one we have here at Skyway Classics, took over the Series 70's place, which was dropped for the 1938 model year, as Cadillac's most luxurious owner-driven large model. Of special note is that 1940 was the last year that side-mounted spare tires (optional on all Cadillacs, including Sixty Special) were offered.
The Cad we have here is a restored version and has some special history too. It is sold w/Original Invoice, is a Documented Hawaiian Export When Sold New, and is thought to be a Former General's Cadillac, which makes it a really rare car.
This Flathead V-8 Engine appears to be just like it was back in 1940 with a clean engine compartment to match. Everything looks period correct and the engine is mated to a 3-Speed Manual Transmission.
The light tan interior appears to be as original also with its bench seat in the front and ear seat with a fold out center console too. It retains all Factory Gauges and all the trim and door panels are great.
The green and white paint that covers the exterior is sharp and really stands out among any other cars. It has the rare Dual Side Mount Spare Tires as mentioned earlier and rides on wide whitewalls with factory hubcaps.
