After the infamous 1959 Cadillac tail fins GM decided to enter the new decade with a "bigger isn't necessary better" philosophy and the 1960 Cadillac was given a slightly less dramatic fin when compared to the tacked on twin pod lamps used in '59. Less chrome also was to slowly become an industry standard and it was now used primarily as a body highlight and not purely for decoration. Powertrains remained the same as the in '59 although this was the last year that a 2barrel or 3x2 barrel 'Tri-Power' carburetor was offered. This would also be the last year for the wrap around windshield styling. In 1960 Cadillac was the ultimate GM jewel outselling Lincoln, Chrysler & Imperial combined!
The Harley Earl designed Cadillac Series 62 was a large luxurious Cadillac that could easily carry six people and had a power top, air suspension and featured a large 6,390 cc (390 c.i.) V8 engine with drum brakes. The marque was discontinued in 1964.
