1949 Cadillac 2 Door Fastback History Cadillac is a division of United States-based General Motors Company (GM) that markets and distributes luxury vehicles. For the Series 61, the big news at Cadillac in 1949 centered on engineering, with the release of a new overhead valve V8 engine. Only minor appearance changes were seen. They included a more massive grille treatment with grooved extension panels housing the front parking lights and chevron slashes below the taillamps on the coupes. Once again the cars in this line lacked front fender gravel shields and rocker panel moldings and had plainer interior trim. A larger luggage compartment lid was seen on all sedans except early production units. Standard equipment now included twin back-up lamps mounted on the deck lid latch panel. The Cadillac Series 62 Coupe de Ville was introduced late in the 1949 model year. It was among the first pillarless hardtop coupes ever produced. It was only a dollar less than the Series 62 convertible, and like the convertible, it came with power windows standard. It was luxuriously trimmed, with leather upholstery and chrome ''bows'' in the headliner to simulate the ribs of a convertible top VIN 49626281 Mechanics New Crate 350ci Engine Turbo 350 Automatic Transmission Power Rack and Pinion Steering 4 Wheel Power Disc Brakes Vintage A/C Aluminum Radiator Electric Cooling Fans Edelbrock Air Cleaner and Valve Covers Chrome Alternator Polished A/C Pump Aluminum Pulleys Edelbrock Carb 10 Bolt Chevy Rear End Nice Springs Lowering Blocks Heavy Duty Shocks Good Looking Exhaust System Custom Drive Shaft Body Beautiful Black Paint Job Fender Skirts Doors Fit and Operate Great Door Lips and Jambs are Clean and Solid Shaved Door Handles Remote Door Opener (Emergency Release Under the Hood) Trunk Popper on Dash Hidden Gas Filler Behind the Driver Side Tail Light Chrome is Very Nice Some Imperfections on Front Bumper Nicely Finished Trunk Tinted Windows Very Solid Frame Rear Floors Look to be Original and Solid Front Floors are New - Flat Sheet Metal with Bar Stock Solid Rockers – Some Work Done, but Very Solid Wheel Wells are Solid, Appears to be Original Undercoating Beautiful 5 Spoke Wheels 225/60/16 Front and Rear Interior Beautiful Gray and Black Interior Nice Paint on Dash and Doors Cadillac Steering Wheel Power Windows Newer Model Leather Seats, Front and Back Power Seats Seatbelts Tilt Telescopic Wheel XM Radio Ready (buyer will need to purchase a subscription) Hands Free Phone Set Up Regular Radio Works A/C Works Great Gauges Work Don’t Miss Out!
