So many. 61-62's with skegs, 49 with early fins and OHV, Broughams (59-60 faves), all the deVille convertibles pre-'70. Early Seville 75-79 (not lumpy trunk thing), and 83-5 Eldo Convertibles post-376-0-74733000-1424142350_thumb.jpgpost-376-0-92715000-1424142395_thumb.jpgpost-376-0-65698800-1424142621_thumb.jpg

Not really a Caddy fan but a red 57 Convert like this one brings back great memory's. When I was 14 back in 1964 I traveled with my Dad thru parts of America. We drove a Caddy like this from Chicago to somewhere in Washington state for a car dealer. This Road trip is one of my best memory of good times with Dad

My favorites are the Cunningham 1950 Le Mans Cadillacs:

Yes, they are both Cadillacs, the Series 61 hardtop is a column shift 3-speed. The French called the custom body one 'Le Monstre'. Wonder why? ; ^ )

For me, it would be a toss-up between the '59, or the '60.

I think the '60 is more elegant.

I agree! between the '59 & the '60, the '60 looked much cleaner! Less cluttered I guess you could say. I'm a little surprised Monogram never did a '60 out of the '59 kit. I for one would love to have one! Hey....I think I have a bottle of that paint color! It's a '59 color, but it's called "Wood Rose". Steve

Is there a kit of a 62?

Johan did an annual of the '62 Cadillac Fleetwood 4 door hardtop. That's the only one I know of. Modelhaus has a 1961 62 series coupe done from the Johan '61 Fleetwood. Here's a shot of a '62 promo for sale on ebay at the moment. Steve

Same with the difference between the '59 & '60 Buicks. I'm partial since I owned a 1:1 1960 Buick for years.

I do like the '60 Caddy and Buick better than the '59s, maybe partly for the fact that they're not as common. '59 Caddy especially has had too much exposure!

I liked the '60 Pontiac & Olds much better than the '59s as well, for the same reason. Much simpler, less "embellished" designs. The '60 Bonneville is one of my all time favorite GM cars, & the competition between the '59 & '60 Olds isn't even close in my opinion. I've always thought the '59 Olds was one of the uglier GM cars.

I liked mine alot...

Still have a Jo-Han Promo of it that waits for painting it like that one...

But if I was to buy any Cadillac right now, I'd go for this:

Let's face it, the fins just do it.

And it will have to be a Sedan, I can't stand the roofline of the coupe.
