V8 engine, Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, semi-floating rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 126″ The inspiration for Cadillacs iconic tailfins dates back to September 1939, when GM design chief Harley Earl sent the Cadillac design team to nearby Selfridge Field to study the new and aerodynamically advanced Lockheed P-38 pursuit plane. Shortly thereafter, a number of design studies and 3/8-scale models known as the Interceptor series were created, but further development was abruptly halted by Americas full-scale involvement in World War II. Following wars end, development of the first all-new postwar Cadillac models resumed in earnest, led by the Series 61 and 62 models, which shared the all-new GM C-body platform. The new 1948 Cadillac models benefited from a pronounced horizontal styling theme and had a pair of subdued tailfins reminiscent of the P-38s twin tails. The Series 61 and 62 models featured different levels of interior and exterior fittings and trim, with the upscale Series 62 immediately recognizable by its stone shields and the lack of chrome rocker moldings. The 1948 models were the last to receive the stout 346 cubic inch flathead V8 engine, noted for its smoothness and durability
